Kindle in Motion, Pottermore…

Rating: 5 out of 5.

It‘s been ages since I read Harry Potter. More or less when the books were published the first time, in the original UK editions. I ordered myself an illustrated version a few years ago, but never read it. Every now and then I take a look at some of the illustrations — very pretty! Now a friend mentioned Kindle in Motion. It‘s basically the same version as my hardcover, as a kindle and with animated illustrations — it‘s mesmerizing!

I can‘t get over the owl on page 43 and how it moves! So cool… Diagon Alley is so pretty in this! 


And I love how the Golden Snitch zoomes around the page, when the crate is opened and Harry gets his introduction to Quidditch!

This is a very nice addition to the illustrated edition. It brings it to life and enhances the already pretty illustrations well.

The Walking Dead, Vol. 10: What We Become

Rating: 4 out of 5.

Getting to know Eugene and Abraham. Eugene mostly stays in the background and Abraham is a hard character to like. 

Michonne and Rick are a surprising development. I did not expect that, only knowing the TV series — which is an obvious divergence.

The fight scene in the middle was pretty disturbing. And Rick and Abraham (almost) bonding in the aftermath… by swapping stories of the horrible things they did to survive. Well, blimey. Makes you wonder what you would be willing to do when things go seriously pear shaped, right? Makes me wonder if I would be one of the ones with an off-switch for my morals or if I would end up shuffling along with the herd… And that was creepy as well…

Looks as if there might be a conflict brewing between Dale and Rick.

Some of the artwork in this I like very much. Only took me nine volumes to come around to it…

Collects issues #55-#60

So, as I have finally caught up with the volumes included in Kindle Unlimited, the question now is — do I shell out for a compendium to continue reading this? Is it worth it?
