Glass Town Reviews

  • Lauren James
    I love Isabel's graphic novels, and Glass Town was just as brilliant as I'd hoped. The perfect mix of fantasy and historical fiction, it flows seamlessly between imagination and memoir....

    One of my favourite books of the year that I'm sure will stay with me. A witty and clever story of the Bronte siblings and their juvenalia writings of Gondol and Glass Town. An entertaining read that is exquisitely illustrated....
  • L.H. Johnson
    I am increasingly conscious that I am moving closer to the world of the Brontës, falling in love with it, and not being remotely mad about this, not at all.

I was in part trying to correct a problem in my YA class teaching that a couple women cal...

    I really enjoyed this! Its my first graphic novel, and where I probably wont reach for them often, its taught me that they can be a fun reading experience! Ive always found the Brontë juvenilia a little confusing, but the visual art really helped me to make sense of it. I know some of it was base...

    I never read graphic novels, they aren't really my thing. However, I could not resist this one. The story of Charlotte dealing with the death of her siblings by retreating to their beloved childhood Glasstown was exquisitely told by Greenberg. I loved this. That is all. Even if you are not a graphic...
