Heartstopper Vol 1 by Alice Oseman - Review

Sunday, July 31, 2022

I finally got round to reading Vol 1 of Heartstopper! I have of course seen the Netflix show, and LOVED it, Joe Locke and Kit Connor were perfect as Charlie and Nick, and I loved a bunch of the other characters too, including Tao and Elle (who I hope get together!) so I thought I should read the graphic novels. I requested them all from the library and they've come in all in the wrong order, so I waited until I got the first one before I started. I don't have the second one, and I can't renew the others again, so I will probably have to request them again... but oh well! I'll get there.

I've read other stuff by Alice Oseman before including Nick and Charlie, which is a novella about them, but it's quite a long time ago so I had forgotten a lot of what happened. I loved seeing stuff that happened in the first few episodes of the show and seeing them in context of the graphic novel. I liked the little details which didn't make it into the show, and stuff which had been written for the show and wasn't present in the graphic novel. I can't wait to read Vol 2! There's also a few pages of the script at the back of this book which was also cute to see. I'm giving this five out of five.
