    3.5 stars OH MY GOSH I FORGOT HOW THIS ONE ENDED AND NOW IT'S BRINGING BACK ALL THE FEELS!! I haven't read this series in probably 3 years and it's been so much fun revisting them as graphic novels! Once again, the issues I have with this book are issues that just transferred over from the original book, which are totally just personal dislikes like overused tropes and a sloppily constructed dystopian world. but what bugs me about this graphic novel is i'm not sure if june and day are supposed to 3.5 stars OH MY GOSH I FORGOT HOW THIS ONE ENDED AND NOW IT'S BRINGING BACK ALL THE FEELS!!

Once again, the issues I have with this book are issues that just transferred over from the original book, which are totally just personal dislikes like overused tropes and a sloppily constructed dystopian world. but what bugs me about this graphic novel is i'm not sure if june and day are supposed to be 15 like they are in the original series, but their look is totally glamorized. June is drop-dead gorgeous and Day has ridiculous muscles. I don't mean to sound bitter, but I just don't know how feasible that is as an expectation for teenagers to have as #goals. But this series is so much fun to revisit, and although dystopia really isn't my thing anymore, I can't wait to see how book three (Antarctica!!!!!!) translates!

    (3.5) Just finished it and I'm . . . underwhelmed? I won't be the first person to say this but the graphic novels, both Legend and Prodigy are really rushed. The graphic novels are useful if you need a quick recap on the series. But you definitely need to read the books if you want the full impact of the story. I loved the graphics in this one, just as I did with the first. If they make a graphic novel for Champion, I'll still definitely read it please please please make a graphic novel for champion (3.5) Just finished it and I'm . . . underwhelmed?

I AM UNABLE TO EVEN. IT'S COMING OUT IN TWO DAYS . *** Holy crap, I'm so excited! I literally fangirled when I found out this graphic novel was actually happening. If they don't make one for Champion I will cry

    Buy this book HERE on Amazon or buy this book HERE on BookDepository with FREE WORLDWIDE SHIIPPING 3.5 out of 5 stars (Please read my rating system further below). Thank you so much to Penguin Teen for sending me this! I'm so glad I had the second graphic novel to pick up right after the first. I had totally forgotten about Marie Lu's MASSIVE cliffhangers! I definitely enjoyed the Prodigy graphic novel more than the Legend graphic novel. Things just clicked by the time I was reading Prodigy.

I definitely enjoyed the Prodigy graphic novel more than the Legend graphic novel. Things just clicked by the time I was reading Prodigy. It was as if the Legend graphic novel was an establishing book while the Prodigy was where really action was. I loved reading this as a brain break. I was reading tons of information-dense books, so it was great to have a refresher, with pictures!!! My rating system: (I do use half stars.) 5 - I do not use the 5 star. Not because a book might not be worthy, but because a book is never perfect. 4 - I loved it! There weren't too many flaws, and I had no trouble getting through it. (A 4 star rating is the highest rating I've ever given a book.) 3 - I enjoyed the book, but there we're flaws that made me enjoy it less. 2 - I finished the book, but there were too many flaws for me to enjoy it. 1 - I could not finish the book, and I probably did not finish it.... COMMENT "DAY IS BAE" IF YOU READ THIS FAR.

    Five stars because of the source material 💖 If I just read this without reading the novels first I’d say that the plot moves too quickly. However, I have read the books first so I will love these forever 💕

    Of the three I think this was the best one. It was the closest to the novel and I felt like you got a lot of the most important info. I even like how they kind of flipped the end a little. Telling the reader the info Day finds out after he tell June to take the job. I liked that a lot. This is a mini impromptu review. I just wanted to catch my initial thoughts right away. I will be back to polish it up.

    Once again the graphic novel stayed pretty true to the book. They did cut some part out but the important parts of the story were there and i think that anyone reading this withoug having read the book first won't be losing any vital part of the plot. A must for anyone who enjoyed the series.

    This graphic novel rendition of Prodigy wasn't the worst thing in world, but it wasn't the best. Most of my problems with this one is the same as the one in Legend. The lack of the descriptions in this made it less enjoyable but more in others... Anyway, it wasn't the best but I'm still going to read Champion because FML.

    Prodigy: the Graphic Novel is the second graphic novel in this series. These follow the books by Marie Lu. Oh have I missed Day and June! These graphic novels are amazing. It is a wonderful way to relive the story.

    I don’t like the graphic novels quite as well as the books themselves, but this was still good. It’s been a long time since I read the trilogy, so it was nice to revisit it as a graphic novel. The art is really detailed, and the story didn’t suffer for being shortened and changed into graphic novel form. A good read for fans of the original trilogy.

    I had high hopes for this graphic novel, because I loved Prodigy!! I never read the Legend graphic novel, but I was excited to read this one...and it disappointed me, a lot! Everything was rushed--I was reading this on my kindle, and checked (multiple times) if it was skipping pages...and it wasn't. It seemed like so many scenes were missing or different. I really think they could've had a more thorough graphic novel that would have been lovely.

It showed and depicted almost all the characters as I envisioned them. The graphics seemed like they could easily be mistaken for Anime/Manga art. It was fantastic. Lastly, this was a SUPER quick read; a grand total of about 1 hour and 30 minutes to finish the book. Overall, I am glad that I just borrowed this book as a library book because I don't know if I would read it again, or at least, very often. Maybe I just had too high of hopes for this one after reading the Wires and Nerve graphic novel duology. But this doesn't tarnish how much I love the novels by Marie Lu. Happy reading!

    It was interesting too, the plot thickens and damn the drama it's cooking it's way up and all, for being a graphic novel I think it conveys pretty well the feeling on the books and all. I think it was a little mean from Day not to explain things to June I mean she problaby wouldn't care and maybe just be with him but a girl can dream.

    Again, another quick, faithful adaptation of Prodigy. Took about, not even, 20-30 minutes to read. If you like the Legend trilogy, but not into re-reading the actual books, this would be refreshing for you. Though I will say, some panels did seem a little bit basic at times.

    It was rushed, but the Legend series is a complicated book so not everything can be included in the graphic novel. It's nice to read it after finishing the series a long time ago.

    Getting a recap of the book by reading a graphic novel is pretty cool. I thought the art was good and while a lot of things were cut from the story, it's a nice little graphic novel kinda read.

    This is the second book in the Legend graphic novel series that was created based on the popular novels by Marie Lu. I listened to the audiobook version of the novel before I read this graphic novel edition, so unlike with the first book, I understood what was going on the whole time. Still, the graphic novel is somewhat disjointed in parts and could be confusing for someone who isn't familiar with the story. The illustrations are terrific and I like that they really bring the story to life.

    Reading this graphic novel made me realize how much I loved reading the Prodigy novel. It has been several years since I read it, and still these characters are close to my heart. I have missed Day and June. The artwork isn't necessarily my favorite. I am not really a manga person, unless it is the colorful, very detailed kind. This is very plain to me. Since I love the story I want the art to wow me, and this artwork just isn't my jam. The story gets condensed quite a bit as well.

    A really entertaining and quick refresher. I always love seeing actual depictions of the characters. Razor was the biggest surprise. Unlike the Legend graphic novel, I felt as if this one left out a few bigger scene, and it changed the order of events in the end in a way that kind of gets rid of the motivation for one of Day's acts, so that didn't really work for me. But overall, this was really great and fun.

    HOLY CROW. THAT ENDING. GAH! MY HEART!!! I've been stuck on this book for over a year now, simply because of all the stress the characters were going under, and I wasn't sure how it would be resolved. All I knew about this trilogy before I picked it up was a) it's a tragedy and b) it's a dystopia. Beyond that it was all up to me. I had no clue how it would play out, or what kind of author Lu was. The twists may not have been completely unexpected (EXCEPT THE LAST ONE, OMG) but it's a solid story. HOLY CROW. THAT ENDING. GAH! MY HEART!!!

    Yessss I loved this one too except it left some pain parts out, such as June and Day's bathroom make out scene 😂 so I cute half a star. So really 4.5/5 starts. Still very enjoyable though and definitely recommend if you have read the series before!!

    I absolutely adore this series but the problem with these books is that there is so much information that gets intertwined and constructed in these books that making a shorter version wouldn't be possible. I did enjoy it and I read it very quickly. The art is amazing and beautiful. Yet I found myself very confused. I first read prodigy within the first few days of January 2014, so I knew I was going to forget somethings but the others; I was really counting on.

These books are so complex that making them into graphic novel form just makes it all seem rushed. And you definitely cannot read them without reading the books first. It wouldn't make any sense.

    I'm not a fan of the artwork style, but I dont think the adapted story stray too far from the novel. One thing for sure is it somehow lacks emotions. I read it in one sitting with a straight face. _________________ I re-read this straight after reading Legend Graphic Novel. My opinion doesn't change much. I just want to add that I become more appreciative about the artwork, and that I like the visualization of Anden better than Day.

    It was okay, but has the same problem as the first one - it cuts out so much that if you haven't read the novel, you're missing way too much of the story. Even if you have read it, this is more of an extended summary than a true adaptation.

    This book, like most graphic novels and movies, wasn't as good as the original book. However, I didn't dislike it. The art was detailed, and I liked that it was printed in color. The pacing also went at a good speed, and as a whole, it summed up the story very well.
