Book Review- Scott Pilgrim's Precious Little Life



by Bryan Lee O'Malley

Reviewed by Katie Gaffron, Chester County Library
In this graphic novel we are introduced to super-slacker Scott Pilgrim. This unemployed 23 year old thinks his life is fantastic. He plays in a band and has an uncomplicated relationship with 17 year old high school student Knives Chau. Scott is content with this existence until he meets a beautiful package courier named Ramana Flowers. Ramona is a hipster chick of legal age who keeps appearing in Scott's dreams.
Scott wants to date Ramona Flowers but before he can do that he must defeat all seven of her evil ex-boyfriends. This graphic novel is part romance and part kung-fu manga adventure story. It is also a quirky gem of a story. I would recommend it to anyone who likes offbeat stories. It is also the first volume of a multi-volume series.
