Was moving over to the graphic novel genre a good idea for me?

Advantages: really good, similar to original novel!
Disadvantages: see review, there's many in a way!

This really interested me due to the fact that I have never read a graphic novel, and in the post, comes this big book on a story I have already read, and so I thought, what better way to start getting into graphic novel by reading a graphic novel that is ...

Brilliant

Advantages: Classic, Influential ideas
Disadvantages: Nope
