  1. I read Speak when I was a teenager and I remember it being a highly visual book, so I’m not surprised that it works well as a graphic novel.

  2. Yay, I’m so glad you liked this book! It’s been ages since I first read Speak, but I was so intrigued to see it illustrated that I’ve now got the graphic novel and the original text and want to do a reread- I was a little worried it wouldn’t hold up as well as I hoped, but am very encouraged now to see that you found this edition effective. I remember in the original novel wishing that there were illustrations to go along with the descriptions of Melinda’s art class, so a graphic novel seemed so promising- I definitely need to read both! Great review!

    • Thank you! I’d love to know your thoughts once you’ve reread it. The importance of art to the story made the format feel ideal so I hope it holds up to your original reading of the novel.
