After watching Atomic Blonde on it's opening weekend, it had made me curious to pick up it's source material. After taking it out and reading it almost straight away, here are my thoughts: - The movie faithful to it's source material for the most part.

Instead of feeling like I was gained additional information, I felt like I was revisiting the film in a way which I don't mind because I loved the film!

I love this story! It's the official story that has gotten me into spy thrillers. I couldn't thank it enough for that. Jun 14, Jim rated it liked it Shelves: Loved the spare black and white illustrations but the story left me a little, well, cold. It's a spy story so obfuscation is part of the game but I didn't feel like I got to know the characters.
That said I am all in on the film Atomic Blonde. Shelves: mystery , historical-fiction. It really helped that I am so fluent in French,German and 'murican,otherwise I would be even more confused.

This is a subtle cold war story told in dark cold tones. Nuance plays an important role in the storytelling both visual and dialogue driven. They compliment each other in most cases.
While not an action packed graphic novel, it is a fast moving and rich story if a bit predictable. This is not a superhero story and certainly for other than a young adult audience.
History of the cold war and familiarity with cold war literature, fiction and non, are both prerequisites to a Sprechen Sie Deutsch, Ja? History of the cold war and familiarity with cold war literature, fiction and non, are both prerequisites to a fuller understanding of this story. The connection to the film Atomic Blonde had brought many readers to this work. They are different in many ways. The main character is radically redrawn for the movie, the visuals are altered to a reverse polarity, and the story is rooted in a different premise with the ending twists also changed.
This is intriguing as they, the film and the original story, compliment one another not unlike the storytelling technique previously mentioned. Liest du Deutsch? That is a better question. The Coldest City is partially told via German dialogue. Not entirely 'good' German in places, but mostly effective German. Some of it borders on modern colloquial urban German, some is idiomatic, and places there's a bit of DiploDeutsch that squeaks into the story. I'm more than a bit critical having learned various forms of German as a youth including formal instruction by Northern and Southern read Austrian teachers simultaneously.
Aug 09, Doug rated it it was ok. I rarely read graphic novels, and - as with most people who have read it in the past month - I only did so with this one since it was the basis of the new film, Atomic Blonde which I have yet to see - I wanted to read it first. Although a very quick read it can be consumed in under an hour , the story is so convoluted - and to be honest - NOT that interesting, that my enthusiasm for the film has somewhat waned.
Shelves: comic-reviews , comics , reviewed. Illustrated with a decidedly minimalist style that is almost harsh in its lo-fi application, details never reach a point of saturation and neither do lines coalesce unto anything eye-catching. Without irises popped and no oracular candy to be savored, grimy angulations never amount to anything memorable nor fantastic. While certainly inching away from anything on the bleak and nihilist side of things, the drawings within remain unbodied and thin in their lack of atmosphere.
Denuded of visible energy, each and every action seems to be perforated with shivs of a stiletto. Part flashback, part-present-time interrogation, our story moves at the speed of a snail and never develops into any significant drama or thrills until at least half-way through it. Disappointingly enough, this turgid intro never evolves a meaningful atmosphere let alone ripens strong characters that are memorable nor emotionally investible. Nope, less Kabuki acting and more automaton-like action unfurls across a narrative draped in an uncompromisingly harsh hue of jet black.
All in all, as I read more and more, I never understood what the buzz was ever about. From boring action to the ever present German while adding a nice period piece feel to it, is kinda lame to be left untranslated for the less linguistically knowledgeable amongst us the Coldest City certainly gave me a cold shoulder that only got frostier that more I read into it. By the time got to the last page, I felt like my mind had been tossed into a freezer and my sensory apparatus chilled off.
None of the Buenos here. Jul 18, Rebecca Watson rated it it was ok Shelves: read-in Like I assume many people, I saw the trailer for Atomic Blonde and wanted to read the book first. While I can see how the story has the bones for what could be a good movie, I wasn't blown away by the book though I have the next volume and will still give it a shot at some point. My main issue was with the art style, which was high-contrast and sketchy.

The art style should serve the story, and while it may have added to the feel of the era, it actually detracted from the story by making it nearly impossible for me to figure out what was going on. There are a lot of characters, all of which look pretty much exactly the same, so at several points there were "reveals" that were just confusing. Who is that guy? Am I supposed to know who that is? The other downside was an end reveal that was telegraphed from the first page. It was obvious, and even worse it was overkill after the previous twists and turns. Finally, it was unearned -- the writing just wasn't strong enough to make me care about it.
I'm hoping the next book is better but I'm saving most of my hopes for the movie, because Charlize Theron murdering people is my jam. Mar 27, Julie rated it really liked it Shelves: graphic-novel , cold-war. Fast-paced and easy to follow despite the twists and turns. The illustrations convey the secretive atmosphere in Berlin at the end of the Cold War.
Looking forward to the film version Atomic Blonde of this spy thriller that will be released this summer. Jun 21, Megan Anderson rated it really liked it Shelves: formystudents , my-library , The art was interesting, I liked the framing, and I loved the end. Very good book! This was a disappointment. I liked the movie, so I decided to give the graphic novel a shot since, usually, they are so much better. But this was really confusing - I honestly don't think I'd really know what was going on if I hadn't already seen the movie.
A huge factor in this is art. Also, how is it that she spent a week This was a disappointment. I have zero interest in reading the sequel.
The Coldest City Atomic Blonde is a solid graphic novel set just before the fall of the wall in Berlin, Told in flashbacks during a debriefing of an MI-6 agent, the plot focuses on British spy Lorraine Broughton who was sent to Berlin after a British spy is found dead. She is sent to assess the situation with the remaining British agent and a possibly blown mission, but as spy games usually do, things get complicated quickly. I liked the plot, the players, the twists, the settings, and A The Coldest City Atomic Blonde is a solid graphic novel set just before the fall of the wall in Berlin, I liked the plot, the players, the twists, the settings, and Agent Lorraine Broughton.
What I didn't like as much was the breezy art style. While the black-and-white, pen-and-ink did set the right tone for this cloak-and-dagger story, the details were a little too hazy at times and I was sometimes confusing the various male agents and characters. Given the plot and themes, that could have been a deliberate choice -- and indeed sometimes it was to maintain mystery -- but sometimes it was just frustratingly confusing and could have benefitted from a style which was a little colder and crisper.
I didn't intend to read this book, but when I saw it on the New Books shelf at the library, I had to pick it up. I haven't seen the movie yet, but it's on the top of my to-watch list. Amazing to see that Atomic Blonde was way better than original Comic Book. Simple like that. The original source material for the movie Atomic Blonde left a lot to be desired.

The only magic I remember is that one or all of the children become invisible. I can't remember what the conclusion is except that I think the man comes back and takes away the dial. Please help me find this!! Jay Williams, The Magic Grandfather , , copyright. Sam is the boy, it's his grandfather that gets stuck in Beta, and the girl is Sam's cousin, Sarah, who finds out at the end that she got Grandpa back through the portal because she's a witch.
The boy must develop his concentration skills, and practices by imagining a brick wall, one brick at a time. The Magic Grandfather was actually by Jay Williams , but I haven't read it so I can't tell you whether this is the right book. This is definitely the book you're looking for! Eleven year old Sam Limner accidentally discovers that his seemingly unemployed, unambitious grandfather is actually a powerful enchanter. His grandfather decides to cast a spell over Sam to make him forget what he has learned, but agrees to let Sam witness one spectacular feat of magic first.
Sam has already seen his grandfather perform some small acts of magic, like mending a broken window, pulling a child's chipped tooth, and repairing a car that won't start. When Grandfather decides to summon a creature from another world, he allows Sam to hold a necessary piece of equipment.
Sam drops the equipment during the spell, and Grandfather is sucked into the other world, where he becomes trapped. Sam, with the help of his cousin Sarah, decides to rescue his grandfather. Sam studies his grandfather's magic books and discovers that he has a talent for sorcery that has been obscured because an addiction to television has ruined his powers of imagination and concentration. He strengthens his imagination by reading a passage from The Wind in the Willows and imagining Badger' kitchen. He has trouble picturing the kitchen's brick floor, and concentrates so that he can imagine it in detail, brick by brick.
After many mishaps, Sam rescues his grandfather, who acknowledges his talent and promises to help him develop it. If the author's name sounds familiar, it's because he is also a co-author of the Danny Dunn science fiction seriesand he plugs the first book in The Magic Grandfather!
Thank you so much for this site! I sent you this stumper and that's absolutely the book I was looking for. If you can, please post my thanks to the person who solved it. I've been looking for that piece of my childhood for years and I'm delighted to finally have the name! Mysterious and Company by Sid Fleischman , only in that book the children were his own, so there would be nothing about picking up or leaving them.
Mysterious and Company -- I checked it out. The details I listed are all very accurate -- I remember the plot clearly, but unfortunately I just blanked on the title. I hope someone is able to figure this one out, as I would love to get my hands on a copy of this great book!!
Thanks for all your help. Good news! I went back to my "childhood" library this weekend and they still have the book - it's called The Magic Hat of Mortimer Wintergreen. Now I just need to locate a copy of it that I can keep I tried bribing the librarian but to no avail! This is really a long shot, but could this be Magic in the Alley by Mary Calhoun? The main character is a girl, with a friend who's a boy, and she reanimates a stuffed crow with magic, which can then talk.
At the end of the book she must decide whether to use her last magic to turn the crow into a real non-magic crow, who will lose the ability to talk. As I said, really a longshot. I looked this up and found only one expensive ex-library copy, but here's the info: Calhoun, Mary: Magic in the Alley. New York: Atheneum, Oh My! It could be-- as I said all I remember are very vague things. I just remember being really affected by the choice that had to be made I will now go out looking for this book.
Was Mary Calhoun the author of the Katie John books?? P is, I think, another Ruth Chew book. Plot summary: "Jenny and her friend Mike discover a magic tree and an old man who feeds the birds in the park. They discover that the tree moves around and that they can go underground and become birds with the help of the magic beech tree. The setting is in winter. Thanks for any help! The book I am looking for was probably a scholastic book from the 70's.
I think it was about a girl who moves to the city into an apartment and befriends a boy.
Together they discover a tree in the park that is sometimes there and sometimes not when it is not there, a man who feeds the animals and keeps them safe in the pockets of his coat is there - he of course turns into the tree. They learn how to turn into birds or squirrels - I can't remember which and then back into humans by eating nuts I think from that tree.

Any help remembering the title and author is much appreciated! Ruth Chew, Magic in the Park. I posted this question last week but think I soon found the answer on your website. I am pretty sure the book is Magic in the Park by Ruth Chew. Magic in the Park by Ruth Chew? What's amazing about her is how she makes writing books for that age level look so easy. She's written about two dozen fantasy books and one non-fantasy book.

Kids fall into the tree and turn into birds -- maybe crows. Adventurous tales. Ruth Chew, Magic in the Park , , approximate. Definitely this one! She visits Prospect Park and meets an old man who feeds the birds, a raven named Napoleon, and a boy named Michael Stewart. Jen and Michael explore a magic island in the lake that turns into an underground tunnel, and a magic tree that temporarily turns them into pigeons. In the spring, Jen gets a bike for her birthday, but a mean boy named Steve tries to steal it.
Mike helps her get it back, but almost gets stuck as a pigeon! Sounds like Magic in the Park. I am sure that the book you are looking for is Magic in the Park by Ruth Chew. I am the original requester. I recognized it immediately. I also recognized the plot of the story from some of your stumper solver comments. I am so happy. It's really been bugging me trying to find this book. I really want my children to read it, cuz I loved it so much. I see they reprinted it in the 80's, so it must have been pretty popular.
It's an interesting cultural artifact, and a book that couldn't be written today. My copy is a withdrawn library copy with the usual defects, but no story pages missing. I've been looking for this book too. For some reason, I think it's by the author of the Best Friends , books, Mary Bard , if that's any help.
I found it! It was Dodie putting on her cloak. It includes you, too. Angel Thorne, a sickly ten year old, is sent to stay with her grandfather's boyhood friend. He decides to send her to Barbados to recuperate, along with his granddaughter Lissa, and her two friends, Emmy and Dodie. This is the third book Madye Lee Chastain wrote about these girls. I don't think Dodie ever got her own book! It was about three children- all girls, I think- who were taken on a trip to a tropical island. I think two of them belonged to the same family. The third was named Dodie, and she thought she wasn't invited.
She cried, "I hope you all have a very nice time," and then some adult in the romm said, "Why, Dodie! Dodie, DEAR! Of course you are invited too.

Madye Lee Chastain , Magic Island. This is the same book as T, which has been solved. I too thought it was a Little Golden Book. There was another series of books in the 's that was similar to Little Golden Books called Jolly Books. I too had a 20 year search for this book after giving our copy to a doctors office when I was a child.
My first bit of luck was finding the cover in an antique shop near home , the shop owner thought it was cute and that someone might want to frame it. It was a bargain at 5 cents. It gave us a starting point. I called my sister in VA for the storyline since after locating it from a book dealer, I gave it to her for Christmas in In this place the toadstools seem to grow or are they getting smaller? Tommy tells him the only magic words he knows are "by hickory and by dickory" which happen to be some of "the magic words of the elves" and Gruffy takes them off to the Queen Fairy to decide what should be done with them.
They go to the biggest tree in the forest and a door opens for them to enter. Once inside they meet the queen and it is decided that the children will have to stay till after the Queen's party. The children get to see the fairy party dresses and Tommy gets to sail in an Oak leaf boat. Whoever was asking about this book had a pretty good recollection to remember the boat part.
