Book Review: Daniel X

Title:  Daniel X
Author: James Patterson
Pages: 128 Pages
Publisher: Little, Brown and Company
Publication Date: December 1st 2008 
My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars
Source: Library 

I haven't read anything by James Patterson before and I thought this would be super fun. This would be a great read for middle and high school kids who like science fiction. There aren't a lot of words, which sucked because it just made this graphic novel seem like it was missing something. It felt lame and art centered. 

This is a non story which seems to be non existing. I had to read about 25 pages before I even figured out the point of this book. The art is action packed and really was fast past. It just lacks any depth. Which is sad because this is a great concept of a story. A kid has special powers that he has inherited. He is being hunted down. 

The art was beautiful however. I think it really worked with the story. It didn't feel over done even. The coloring is very nice also. I also like the size of the book it feels really good reading it. 

Goodreads Book Description: 

With an exciting new Patterson narrative in a graphic novel format, Daniel X continues his quest in a full-color, action-packed adventure! 

Long ago, after his parents' brutal murder, Daniel inherited the coveted List of Alien Outlaws and assumed his father's role as Alien Hunter. With his supreme abilities, like being able to shape-shift and conjure up long-dead family members out of thin air, Daniel is ready to take on the scum of the universe. 

Number 7 on the list--grand-master of an interplanetary game of destruction that could result in the eventual take-over of earth--is his next target. In a journey that takes him through the bowels of Tokyo and into other realms, Daniel ingeniously tracks the insectile mastermind. But when #7 reveals his true and terrifying powers, Daniel must enlist the help of #7's own son before he finds himself at the center of the most high-stakes game yet.
