The Good Earth by Pearl S. Buck, Nick Bertozzi (adaptor/illustrator)

i got my copy from netgalley

Hardcover, 144 pages
Expected publication: July 4th 2017 by Simon Schuster
i gave it 2/5 stars,
the reason is because its a damn scam. my 2 year old nephew can draw better than that. as the cover is stunning and the beginning like 20 something pages are actually tolerably drawn the rest is just a rip off of the original story with really really really bad drawing. the story in itself and the cover what I give my 2 stars for.
synopsis via goodreads: Pearl Buck’s 1931 Pulitzer Prize–winning classic about the rise and fall of Chinese villagers before World War I comes to life in this graphic novel by Nick Bertozzi.

In The Good Earth, Pearl S. Buck paints an indelible portrait of China in the 1920s, when the last emperor reigned and the vast political and social upheavals of the twentieth century were but distant rumblings. This story of the honest farmer Wang Lung and his selfless wife O-Lan is must reading to fully appreciate the sweeping changes that have occurred in the lives of the Chinese people during the last century.
