How To Talk To Girls At Parties
Author: Neil Gaiman

My Rating: ★


Enn is a fifteen-year-old boy who just doesn't understand girls, while his friend Vic seems to have them all figured out. Both teenagers are in for the shock of their young lives, however, when they crash a local party only to discover that the girls there are far, far more than they appear! 
All I can say is man that was a weird party.

First of all, let me say I am a complete novice when it comes to graphic novels. Prior to reading this one, I had only read one right before making this the second graphic novel I had ever completed. Before reading this, I had never read any Neil Gaiman but I have always wanted to. Even though this graphic novel gets an extremely low rating from me this isn't going to keep me from reading more of his works. I have heard other stories written by him being raved about so I will not judge his writing just by this graphic novel. I knew his stuff was weird from watching the Coraline movie, so I was prepared for it but man was this bizarre and not in a good way. I was completely confused but also annoyed by all the characters. 

The only reason I didn't DNF this book is because of the graphics honestly.. they were so beautiful and also because I didn't think it could get any weirder but it did which kinda made me more intrigued just to see how it was gonna end and wrap up. I don't recommend you pick this graphic novel up if you are new to reading this genre like I am. I really feel like there was no purpose or plot behind this. It was all just completely random. The characters talk complete gibberish in this. I am not even kidding. With that being said, "What did I just read?"
Book Depository 

Neil Gaiman was born in Hampshire, UK, and now lives in the United States near Minneapolis. As a child he discovered his love of books, reading, and stories, devouring the works of C.S. Lewis, J.R.R. Tolkien, James Branch Cabell, Edgar Allan Poe, Michael Moorcock, Ursula K. LeGuin, Gene Wolfe, and G.K. Chesterton. A self-described "feral child who was raised in libraries," Gaiman credits librarians with fostering a life-long love of reading: "I wouldn't be who I am without libraries. I was the sort of kid who devoured books, and my happiest times as a boy were when I persuaded my parents to drop me off in the local library on their way to work, and I spent the day there. I discovered that librarians actually want to help you: they taught me about interlibrary loans."
