My favourite page of Gotg - Collect Them All
So, I started it today - thank goodness my day off is finally here. I like it (I mean, it’s about Groot’s clones, that’s awesome), but it’s not the best thing I’ve ever read. The author is taking too much time to get to the point and some bits are kinda boring. It’s not like the characters are OOC or anything, even the new entries are pretty interesting and it starts with a pretty nice idea (I should know, given my last posts). It’s just slow and maybe too serious. At least, way more serious than I expected.
But then, this page happened. And I loved every word. It has both humor and heart, and that’s exactly what I wanted from a book like this. I’m glad most of it comes from Rocket, he’s incredibly funny and he also shows his heart of gold to all the Groots he has around. I love how he just rolls with all the weirdness and goes in full dad mode with the flick of a switch. There’s a scene a couple of pages later where he sits on the couch and he’s promptly surrounded and hugged by baby Groots
he’s basically an old cat lady. I love bits like this one, especially when Rocket is involved (the author put a lot of effort into getting his character right and it shows).
This may not be the best book ever (go check Rocket Raccoon and Groot: Steal The Galaxy! if you want a bunch of very good characters, a well-written story and a whole lot of fun), but I think pages like this make it worth the struggle. Not exactly my piece of cake, but you guys may want to give it a shot!
