Hush, Hush

Availability: Ready to download

For Nora Grey, romance was not part of the plan. She's never been particularly attracted to the boys at her school, no matter how much her best friend, Vee, pushes tham at her. Not until Patch came along. With his easy smile and eyes that seem to see inside her, Nora is drawn to him against her better judgement.

    Sorry, BB, but OH SHIT NO. The only good thing about this book is that that placeholder cover confirmed one of my assertions: baseball caps are not hot. IN THE LEAST. EVER. Edit: okay, so I have a sick sense of curiosity, but I Googled this and came up with some more sketches. I have to say, the artist got Patch and Nora down. He looks like an asshole and she looks like an airhead. Well done! Edit #2: BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA FUCK WHAT THE FUCKING HELL IS WITH THIS FUCKING COVER I ASK YOU?

I kind of love it, actually. I mean, his wings are the wrong color. And what the fuck is that expression on his face? Constipation? This book is such a joke. This one, not the original. The original is Serious Business because it is the Lowest of the Low and reminds us of how far the YA genre has fallen. But this is a joke. And apparently all Patch had to fill his time before he met Nora was pump iron, because he's pretty built. Not in the attractive Thor way, either. Imagine if Nora had come along a century later. All that free time, man, I dunno. He might have wound up looking like this fellow: (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] Okay, no, I jest. But seriously. That cover, man. That cover...

    This is the old cover that I'm talking about in my review, just so I don't sound like a raving lunatic: This has got to be the creepiest and most awkward cover I've ever seen. What is he even doing? I mean, just look at the pose! It looks like he's either going to: A. Go play some weird version of angel football B. Just jumped through Nora's window and is about go kill her (out of love, of course) C. Is extremely constipated and in dire need to take a shit I'm going to say a mix of B and C because This is the old cover that I'm talking about in my review, just so I don't sound like a raving lunatic: This has got to be the creepiest and most awkward cover I've ever seen.

Just jumped through Nora's window and is about go kill her (out of love, of course) C. Is extremely constipated and in dire need to take a shit I'm going to say a mix of B and C because of his face alone. You only have to look at it for two seconds to think that it's the creepiest thing you've ever seen, not the face of some dark hottie who lusts loves Nora. I understand that graphic novels will look different than the actual book and are supposed to look harder, more edgy, but that has so crossed the edginess boundary that all he looks like now is a stalking creep. Oh, and don't forget the constipation! I will never, ever read this graphic novel. The only thing I have left to say is this: [image error] Oh, and this for some more added randomosity to get this horrible book out of my mind I'm done now. Edit: So....they changed the picture from his constipated pose to him standing in the wind; pretty much molting everywhere. How is that supposed to be sexy at all? If an emo-looking guy with weird hair stood in front of me molting i'm pretty sure I'd scream and run away, not swoon.

Now I got proof about what I was talking about! Sorry for the bad quality of some pictures. Actual rating: 1.5/5 rating If you want to know my opinion of the actual book click here. This graphic novel is SHITTY. The characters in this book look nothing like their descriptions. Book!Nora Grey: A “smokey-eyed brunette (doesn't makes sense, by the way) with volumes of curly hair that holds its own against even the best flatiron”. She is also described as having long, “bar stool” legs. Graphic novel!Nora Grey: A blonde bimbo who wears revealing clothes ALL THE TIME. First, she wears this: And then, she wears a tiny top and short black skirt. To visit Patch at the arcades. And sitting suggestively while asking questions. Patch's expression in that scene was priceless. Also, when she bends down to talk to someone, she has this look on her face that says "I'm ready" and her butt is up in the air, looking like a streetwalker attending her client (She was only saying goodbye to Vee). Yeah. In other words, she looks like a cheap ho. Did she just took off her top JUST to see who was on her window? Holy shit. "This is ridiculous." I know, right? By the way, she IS wearing a short skirt in that scene. Book!Jev "Patch" Cipriano: He is described to have slightly curly, long, black hair, black eyes, and six-foot-one. Graphic novel!Jev "Patch" Cipriano: Described perfectly, except that he looks like a kid who has taken steroids since birth. And he looks like a pervert. Wait, that's actually very accurate. Dude, seriously?! Book!Vee Sky: Is described as being "a few pounds over curvy" with blond hair and green eyes and "closing in on 6ft tall". Graphic novel!Vee Sky: Has red/brown hair, is chubby and shorter than Nora. That's weird. I thought Nora was about 5 ft 4 in (1.63 m) - 5 ft 5 in (1.65 m). Why is she shorter? Oh, and she has masculine arms and big breasts. Really big breasts. UGH. "My boobs, my boobs, my boobs are okay! And no matter what you say I know they're okay. My boobs are okay!" Book!Marcie Millar: Has strawberry blond hair and freckles concealed under "half a bottle of foundation". Graphic novel!Marcie Millar: Looks like a stereotypical bimbo. With pigtails and revealing clothes. All that jazz. That's all she does in here. In other words: HORRIBLE. TERRIBLE. ATROCIOUS. What the hell was the illustrator thinking?! The only thing I liked was the short story at the end. Even though it was mediocre at best. It was pretty much like this: (view spoiler)[Chapter 1: Sex(?) with Patch and Nora. Chapter 2: Dabria warns Patch about the archangels. Oh, and she's a falling angel now. Yaaaaay. Chapter 3: Nora going out with Patch. Patch is still worried about what Dabria said. Marcie Millar hits on Patch. Nora is being a whiny bitch until Patch tells her she looks pretty in his favorite dress. Chapter 4: Patch gets jealous of Nora's friend. Still worried about the archangels. (hide spoiler)] Have a really good night everybody! MUAH!! EDIT 7/30/17: I'm 9 months too late, but GUYS, WE DID IT!

    I love the Hush Hush Novel but this! This is just unacceptable. The illustrations are nothing like them and IT IS NOT THEM. This is not patch and nora. The cover is a buff man maybe in his 30's give or take. Patch is a teenager-ish in looks and is lean and taut not beefy. Just right in physique. So I am very disappointed.

    I picked this graphic novel up knowing it was bad. But I didn’t expect it to be THIS bad. First, why is Nora blonde and practically wearing 0 clothes (even at school) Patch looks like a pedophile. Vee is supposed to be a little thick with long hair and TALL. But in this novel she’s huge with short hair. It’s like the illustrator didn’t even read the book before drawing the characters. And this novel covered like maybe the first 4 chapters? Hardly enough to enjoy. The only thing I really enjoyed wa I picked this graphic novel up knowing it was bad. But I didn’t expect it to be THIS bad.

    I don't really like to read graphic novel versions of books, because a) I already know the story so it isn't really exciting for me, and b) I like the version of the stories in my head. But I decided to read the graphic novel version of Hush, Hush because I was curious and, well, for Patch. The main reason I wanted to read it? I wanted to see some of those steamy scenes between Nora and Patch. For example, I was looking forward to that awesome kitchen scene (all you fans know exactly what scene I I don't really like to read graphic novel versions of books, because a) I already know the story so it isn't really exciting for me, and b) I like the version of the stories in my head.

I wanted to see some of those steamy scenes between Nora and Patch. For example, I was looking forward to that awesome kitchen scene (all you fans know exactly what scene I'm talking about, riiiiight? *grins*). But it didn't come, since this only covered part of the whole book. That's ok though, I'm pretty sure it'll be in the next volume! Nora and Patch weren't exactly how I pictured them. Nora looked completely different, especially the way she dressed. It wasn't like her at all. Most of the time she was wearing this cropped, off-the-shoulder top and I couldn't tell whether she was wearing a tank top underneath that was tucked into her jeans, or if it was her stomach. 'Cause I didn't see a belly button. Anyways, as for Patch, he was just...meh. At times he looked like the Patch I imagined, other times he looked plain creepy. However, this is just the artist's view on the books, so I don't want to be too judgemental. If that's how the artist saw Patch and Nora, then fine. But I'll stick to the version I have in my mind. I'm going to read the other volumes - I just hope the smexy scenes stay smexy! (And being the total geek I am, I had Hush, Hush the novel with me as I read this book to compare. I kept checking to see if they fit together. I almost did this with the Twilight movies before. I'M KIND OF LAME, I KNOW! But I don't care. XD)

They need to work on it better next time- it looks nothing like how it was described in the book, obviously the characters are wrong but also the story itself was dull. TIME FOR WHAT I ENJOYED! I really loved the concept of a graphic novel for one of my all time favourite book series, some parts of it were enjoyable once I learned to ignore the characters appearance, and the added chapters at the end were somewhat good to a certain level... Anyway I have no idea what Becca was thinking on letting this crap be published and sold to die hard hush hush fans, I expected a lot more.. Not all my standards where met, but the main reason I read it was for patch, and I wasn't as disappointed with him as I thought I should be. I'll be continuing the series when further novels are released, but I will not be paying £15 for it!!! I'd rather wait for a used copy. So if you're like me... Curious and not afraid to waste your money- you should totally check it out and see what you think. BUT if you're unsure and not willing to take a risk, DONT FUCKING BOTHER ITS NOT WORTH IT!

    Ummmm....where is the rest of the book? That is the first thing I want to know. This is list priced at $19.95 and it only covers the first 5 chapters of the book?! So, there really isn't much to say about the summary of this. We meet the characters, Nora, Patch and Vee. Patch teases Nora, Nora doesn't like Patch and feels stalked by him. Mystery man breaks through Vee's windshield to get at Nora. That's it! Nothing more. Seriously. I feel this was a half inch thick teaser.

Word-for-word enough times even. The bad-the characters look nothing how the book describes them! Nora is really bad. Wrong hair and she is dressed in clothes I don't see anyone being allowed to wear in school. Point 2: This has too much detail for a graphic novel. Like I said, line for line copying for the book. The graphic novel covers only the first 5 chapter but is more pages than the first 5 chapters even are! Overall, I really feel this graphic novel is bad publicity for the book and not worth the cost. I really did not like them not finishing. The story hasn't even gone anywhere yet! *I won this book on mommasaysread.com in a raffle.

    I really don't know why I decided to torture myself. Really don't. I'm just going to say that reading this in graphic novel form really highlights all of the sexism and disgusting behavior that permeated the actual book. You get to see the coach in all of his disturbing, student-traumatizing glory. Patch acting like the stalker-douchebag that he truly is, all the while wearing baseball caps (I don't remember him wearing a hat in every scene in the book, but that's just me).

And Nora truly looks like the ditzy, bubble gum popping girl she really is. In regards to the artwork, I actually enjoyed it. The artist has some skill, it's just the dialogue/story that ruins it for me. (And I know; I knew what I was getting going into this, but what can I say, I"m a masochist). Because I have to finish I will be checking out volume two when it comes out later. But I have to ask; why do they split these into two different books? The Twilight Graphic Novel did the same thing (though Twilight was considerably larger). But when Vampire Academy was turned into a graphic novel they managed to fit it in one book. So why not Hush Hush? They're practically the same size.

    Hrm. Well th sketches are...odd. It actually makes the characters even more boring to me when I had figured the oposite. I thought Nora had dark hair! Lmao. Also is anyone else really curious exactly how fat Vee is going to be? The book makes it a constant thing but they're always euphemizing it, so now I confess myself interested even though the book should have just done the physical description and left it at that, I don't see why "Vee is chubby" has to be a constant point of characterization u Hrm.

Oh! Unless you don't know how else to characterize someone! Of course. I'm a little overweight and I can promise it does not define my life or my character. Anywho! I'll probably glance through this but since the series lost me halfway through Silence I'm only minorly curious how the author pictured the characters. Speaking of which, I have no problem with novels having graphic novels, I think it's a neat way to revive two mediums that have been losing momentum over the past few years. But I DO think we should just drop the pretence on these ones and instead of selling them as stories just sell them as sketchbooks of an artist's rendering of the author's ideas of how the characters appeared. That's all we're really looking for right? I honestly would rather enjoy picking up some picture books of exactly that (for books I DO like though), it wouldn't take away from my own image since I'm good with those, 8 Harry Potter movies later and I still see Ron with a long, pointed nose while I'm reading. So why not make that the next step? Get more milage out of your characters and draw your audience closer to your vision. Best of all, it's optional.

    This graphic novel took me two days to read. TWO! And it's only an hour read, at the most for me. I'm going to talk about the art of the book because I already reviewed the book, and lets face it: I only bought it for the art. We got a sneak peek of the art throughout last year and were even given the whole prologue months before the novel hits shelves. I had hope that the artist(s) would be able to bring characters I like to life. I gave this graphic novel 1 star. I'm going to say something positiv This graphic novel took me two days to read. TWO!

I had hope that the artist(s) would be able to bring characters I like to life. I gave this graphic novel 1 star. I'm going to say something positive first. The art was good. It was detailed and surprisingly, Patch was bang on, for me. Tall, dark, and very creepy. This is where the rant begins. Here's how Nora describes herself in the book: "I'm a smoky-eyed brunette with volumes of curly hair... I'm all legs, like a bar stool." And here's how she describes Vee: "She's green-eyed, minky blond, and a few pounds over curvy." Somehow, I think these descriptions were ignored. I understand if drawing curly hair is possibly more time consuming (and in this industry, speed is everything) but why did Vee turn out so ugly? I never once imagined her the way she was drawn. This was probably what made it so hard to read the novel. I got one look at Vee and closed the book. I actually said "yuck" out loud. And somehow Nora became blonde and Vee a brunette. Again, not the biggest problem in the world, but I ask: why? The female anatomy was terrible. Why do all the girls have abnormally large breasts? Aren't they supposed to be in grade ten? Vee and Nora looked twenty-five. Don't even get me started on Marcie. She didn't even have her name mentioned and looked like a man. I just have two more issues. The consistency of the drawing was terrible. On one page (and I can't even say which one because there are no page numbers, so about 1/3 of the way into the novel) Nora has her bangs down, and on the same page they're back up. It happens several times in this part of the novel. Okay, last nit-pick. The graphic novel ended way too early into the book. 80 pages to be exact. If I hadn't read the book, I would have been very confused. There just wasn't enough plot development for me. I hate to give it one star, but it was that disappointing for me.

    I got this book earlier than I was suppose to. Was I happy? Yes. Am I happy after reading this? Not exactly. I hate the drawings of Vee. She looks, no offense, like a fat guy with some girl expressions and "mom-jeans". I have harsher thoughts but I'm not in the mood for bad-mouthed comments. The first drawing of Patch has him looking like he has no "junk". I mean, it was a sexy picture but then you look down and can't help but ask, "where is the buldge?"

I thought he hair was suppose to be dark...? Am I wrong? But it's drawn with a light shade....I don't know. I didn't realize the "graphic novels" would be in volumes. I thought each book would have its own offical graphic novel, instead of waiting for the next volume which makes me think they just want the money. I might wait until they combine the volumes or if it's cheap I'll get the next volume... We'll see. But I'm very disappointed in the drawings and just how cut up the story is. I'm confused just reading the one volume or what happened and why it happened, even though I've read the book(s) I try to keep an open mind when it comes to graphic novels. I would say just wait.

    Hush, Hush is one of those series that I really enjoyed and so I decided to pick up this graphic novel. I have a couple problems with this graphic novel mostly about Patch and Nora. I didn't really imagine Patch or Nora looking like they were depicted in the graphic novel. Nora is supposed to be kind a smart and conservative girl but in this graphic novel she dressed very inappropriate and slutty. I mean Nora looked like she was wearing a half shirt.

Also keep in mind that this only a small part of Hush,Hush and the majority of this books takes place in biology class. We don't even get to see Delphic Park in this volume. Hush, Hush: The Graphic Novel had really nice drawings even though the artist depicted the characters in a way different than the way I pictured them. I'll probably read volume 2 once it's released and I hope it's a bit longer.

    This graphic novel is a fun little refresher of the first novel. In all honesty, I wasn't a huge fan of the artwork. Nora, in my humble opinion, is a wee bit too "smexy" in a not-so-"smexy" kinda way (i.e. hipbones jutting out and cold rooms exposed by thin t-shirts *yuck*). And poor Vee was not at all how I pictured her. The panels at times have an awkward flow to them. And unless you've read the novel, the story seems choppy and lacking, not to mention, confusing.

Overall, I recommend fans of hush, hush rent/borrow this one before making a final purchase. And that lovers of comics (who haven't read the book) pass, annnnnnd now I'm gonna peace out.

    I didn't realize how short this would be. I'm disappointed the other graphic novels have yet to be published and would love to be able to continue the series this way. Even so, it was nice to see the images on print and it was awesome to link the pictures in my mind to the ones on the page. Fun!

    I am a big fan of the Hush Hush Series by Becca Fitzpatrick. When Patrick from Sea Lion Books offered me a chance to review this before it comes out in March, so I decided to jump at the chance and review it. This is the first Graphic Novel I have read so this is a new experience for me. First I must say I actually really liked reading this as a graphic novel, it was neat having pictures to go along with the storyline. Second I really like how each character is depicted.

First I must say I actually really liked reading this as a graphic novel, it was neat having pictures to go along with the storyline. Second I really like how each character is depicted. The only thing I didn't like which I discussed with Patrick was Nora's outfits I was a little bit baffled as to why she was not dressed as her character was dressed in the books. To say the least she was dressed like her arch nemesis Marcie Miller. However as the story went on her outfits seemed more like her, so now I am okay with it. However I didn't realize which Patrick Explained to me is that when you are adapting a book to a Graphic Novel you are trying to make both fan bases happy. Third I really like the expressions on the characters faces in each scene, this really helped bring the characters to life. Out of the characters Patch would be my favorite, he really is a perfect depiction of Patch in the books. fourth I was a bummed where it ended but I am looking forward to reading the other Volumes of Hush Hush. Finally I know the story by heart so it was easy for me to read this Graphic Novel. I feel like Sea Lion books along with Derek Ruiz and and Jennyson Rosero really did the book to Graphic Novel Justice. I really hope fans of the series reads the Graphic Novel of Hush Hush.

    As a big fan of comics and graphic novels I'm ashamed I waited so long for this book! First it kept getting pushed back. Month after month after month! When if finally did become available, you could never find it at any book store. So I turned to ordering, which took forever...now after seeing it and reading it I'd like my money back. First off the graphic portion was bad. Patch looked like a boy who was just hitting puberty in most of the panels.

When if finally did become available, you could never find it at any book store. So I turned to ordering, which took forever...now after seeing it and reading it I'd like my money back. First off the graphic portion was bad. Patch looked like a boy who was just hitting puberty in most of the panels. Vee was suppose to be more curvier and have long blonde hair. As for Nora doesn't she have darker hair!? Either way, those don't look like the character that were described. Secondly, it needs some more thought bubble!! Like what's going on inside her head more. It seems to just tell the story through dialogue. I don't even think it mention her mother is out of town. Thirdly, the fact that it ends not even a third through the book is ridiculous. I spent $16 on a not even half finished book.... Last but not least the little original story...I was hoping it would be maybe a sneak peek into Final, but just like the rest of this book I was left very disappointed. I had high hopes for the graphic novel, because I do enjoy the novels. Here's hoping Final measures up.

    I try not to base my reviews on other works, but since this is a spin-off of the series I will indeed compare them. 1. The quality of this book is physically crap. I mean- the pages are basically construction paper. 2. The cover image looks nothing like the illustrated Patch contained in the graphic novel. 3. Characters appearances don’t match those of the characters descriptions in the novels 4. Why is Nora dressed like a harlot? 5. Continuity errors from frame to frame 6. Length: this hardly co I try not to base my reviews on other works, but since this is a spin-off of the series I will indeed compare them. 1. The quality of this book is physically crap.

Length: this hardly covers 25% of the first novel. And I noticed they didn’t make any more of these graphic novels to continue the story so it’s a complete waste of money. 7. The only redeeming part of this was the bonus content of written works about time Nora and Patch spent together that wasn’t mentioned in the actual series

    Reading the story through the graphic novel reconnected me with the characters I grew attached to while reading the series. While the graphics are beautifully done, I'll admit that most of the characters didn't look like I imagine them, but it wasn't hard to see who was who even if they wouldn't have been named. Someone who has not read the series would be able to follow the story and love it. Keeping in mind that they can't put everything from the book into this graphic novel, I think they did a Reading the story through the graphic novel reconnected me with the characters I grew attached to while reading the series.

Keeping in mind that they can't put everything from the book into this graphic novel, I think they did a wonderful job at keeping what was essential to the story and toss out what could be left out. The only thing that disappointed me really was that it stopped before any of the real action began hahaha I need Part two now.
