My book review of “The Hedghe Knight” written by George R.R. Martin
In my view…
Sometimes I read graphic novels as well and this is one of them. The ‘A Game of Thrones’ prequel. I have not read a book from the series yet, except this prequel who has a little series of itself as well. When I once started in the first novel of the ‘A Game of Thrones’ series, it was hard to follow as a start. But this graphic novel isn’t hard to follow at all which I didn’t expect because I expected that the graphic novel with the prequel story would be quite complicated as well. This was my prejudice.
The story is about a young squire named Dunk. His master died and he wants to fulfill a dream. In this story of fourty eight illustrated pages, a lot is going on. Who can he trust on the road to become a real knight? The young boy Egg who walks away from home and wants to become a squire? This is only the first book of a little series.
The illustrations are nice and the writing style is easy, not too complicated and made clear by the illustrations.
I am not telling about the story – never do in my book reviews – you have to read the book yourself and make your own opinion. I hope you like the book too. It is worth to read it!
