30 Days of Night, Vol. 1 (book review)

30 Days of Night, Vol. 130 Days of Night, Vol. 1 by Steve Niles
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I think it would have been better if it stayed just a graphic novel.

I never have read the comic/graphic novel version of this. I listened to the audiobook and I thought it couldn’t make a difference, but I think in the end it does. It seems like this story relies on visual imagery that can’t really be placed in audio.

The story itself is very short, easy to listen to and at the time was a bit ahead of other things like this in the genre. However now decades later it gets lost to stories that are better and more refined. This isn’t on the author though, he did great.

The story itself is a simple thirty days in Barrow Alaska, vampires and a few survivors trying to make it out. I am curious with the sequels how they pan out, but this story itself is a good, self-contained vampire urban fantasy story that would fit in with White Wolf’s gaming system.

Like I said, not a bad story, but you probably get further and enjoy it more if you read the comic/graphic novel.
