This was a fun adaptation of the classic novel! It was really amazing to see how Woodman-Maynard has reimagined this story into such beautiful art.

I do not like the original novel. I did not like The Great Gatsby: The Graphic Novel, the other adaptation I read a few months ago. So of course I read this newest adaptation when it came into my library, because I hate myself that much.

This one is a bit laughable with the artist adapting Fitzgerald's metaphors into actual illustrations: look at Daisy and Jordan float, look at the orchid that is also an actress. The green light looks like the Emerald City of Oz sitting on the horizon. Also, she decided to excise the antisemitic depiction of Meyer Wolfsheim (whom she calls Meyer "Wolfshiem," which I cannot tell is part of removing his Jewish roots or a simple typo), while leaving in all of Tom Buchanan's white supremacist diatribes -- because it's okay to offend Black people but not Jewish people? Huh?

Anyway, the original novel is now in the public domain so I suppose I'll be hate reading a few more of these before too long. ( )

Fitzgerald's original words are ripe for illustration. The graphic novel takes a playful approach to drawing some of his metaphors in a literal way. It lends a dreamy air to the serious plot. I loved the way she captured the jazz age and worked the text into the images. I would recommend reading the actual novel before this because there's so much more to dive into, but this is a great way to enhance your reading experience and view the story in a new light. ( )

The Great Gatsby:A Graphic Novel Adaptation
by K. Woodman- Maynard based on the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald
due January 2021
Candlewick Press
4.0 / 5.0

A sincere thanks to LibraryThing, and Candlewick Press for sending this ARC for independent review.

The use of light, bright watercolor with the simple, direct character sketches, do an excellent job of bringing the Jazz Age of the 1920s to life. The novel, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, was set in this period, and portrayed many of the characteristics if this time.
The use of color to express emotion was brilliant, a well conceived idea. It adds much feeling and voice to the story and the Era.
I look forward to seeing the finished graphic novel, in color. The ARC is in B&W, but they dobinclude the first chapter, in a seperate booklet in color, so you can see the illustrations, colors scheme and design to be used in the novel. Well done, well thought out. Recommended. ( )

This is a beautiful graphic-novel adaptation of The Great Gatsby that does justice to its source material and is a worthy companion. K. Woodman-Maynard's illustrations are exquisite, with a dreamy quality that evokes the elegance of the era and of Fitzgerald's rich setting.

I especially liked how she reinforced the personalities of Daisy and Tom with the shape of their speech balloons. Daisy's are cloud-like, with wisps that wind and curl; in a part where she's drunk, the balloons are a little messier. By contrast, the speech bubbles of her domineering husband, Tom, are box-shaped, with sharp points. Dialogue is neatly printed and clear; there's never any mistaking who's talking. Woodman-Maynard printed the actual text in creative ways, such as along a driveway or vertically along drapes.

Readers should take time to read the author's note at the end. Here, Woodman-Maynard talks of her impressive research, which ranged from studying cars to the fashion of the era. With this said, she didn't aim for exact verisimilitude; her illustrations pull from other eras and her own imagination. There's a careful continuity throughout, however, and had she not explained such creative liberties, I wouldn't have known.

She also makes clear that this isn’t a literal interpretation of the novel. She speaks glowingly of The Great Gatsby, encouraging any readers who haven’t read the source material to do so. As much as the graphic-novel format works for this story, it did limit her and she was unable to highlight all of The Great Gatsby’s themes. As she says, "My goal was to capture the mood of The Great Gatsby, and so there are a few areas where I took more artistic license than others. For example, I reordered certain scenes so that they better suit the pacing of the graphic novel . . . " Maynard-Woodman also purposely omitted Nick’s anti-Semitic view of Meyer Wolfshiem: "Nick’s depiction of Meyer Wolfshiem is especially difficult. Although both Wolfshiem and Gatsby engage in illegal activity and are essentially gangsters, Gatsby is described as a mythic and beautiful character while the depiction of Wolfshiem is an anti-Semitic caricature of a Jewish mobster." Maynard-Woodman resolved this challenge by illustrating Wolfshiem in such a way that his intimidating and mysterious personality remains intact; that he is Jewish isn’t emphasized.

Some readers may object to the changes Woodman-Maynard made, but she achieved what I believe she set out to do: create a loving homage to a favorite novel. I could continue to praise this graphic novel, but I'll stop with some personal high praise: I’m not a fan of the source material, yet I, someone who very rarely rereads anything--and never anything I disliked--was intrigued enough by Woodman-Maynard’s creation that I’d take a second look at The Great Gatsby.
