Sailor Twain: Or: The Mermaid in the Hudson

Sailor Twain: Or: The Mermaid in the Hudson - Mark  Siegel With regards to books made into movies, I almost always favor the source material -- citing the inability of a screenplay in successfully capturing all the details and nuances, and in portraying the descriptions contained in the written word. This, for part of the same reasons, turns me off from graphic novels.

That said, this book impressed me very much and deserves 5 stars. Emotion and sentiment were depicted in dialogue and elucidated via facial expressions, 'scene grabs', and all in various shades of grey pencil drawings. The story was very well-paced, and reads very much like a worded novel would, which is the reason for my liking it so very much.

A little hitch (my own doing) was that I kept thinking that the story was set on the Mississippi, instead of the Hudson River because of the "Twain" reference in the title.
