    5 🌟Nice to see a Gossip Girl graphic novel. Don't really like how there only seems to be people with super-model looks though. Sad that Blair and Serena got dumped. Glad that Serena got together with Nate. Hope Dan and Vanessa get together.Can't wait to read Gossip Girl: the Manga, volume 2!!!!

    Another Borders closing $1 special. I was super jazzed when I got it because it's the cheesy manga version of the greatest show of our time aka Gossip Girl. And it really delivers on hilarity. I mean, in the first scene Blair wears a literal crown on her head. And Chuck is always in sunglasses and an ascot. The book would be worth the full price alone for just the little flashback scene of baby Chuck and Blair bonding over being evil. Amazing. As for the storyline, the manga is very much a hodgepodge of the books and the TV show. Tonally, I'd say it's closer to the books and the over-the-top crazy that happened in them. Of course, the relationship between Chuck and Blair is a little closer to the TV show version than the book version. I wish there had been more Serena, although the scene where she and Dan are sitting in Central Park and she is hella crazy bored with him was hilarious and very Serena. Very trashy fun and I'm adding the next volume to my next amazon order.

    DNFing at 62 pages. I have seen the show and knew what to expect but wow, it was not what I was expecting and really difficult to follow.

    Reason for Reading: This is a Cybils '10 nominee and required reading for me as a graphic novels panelist.I'm not writing one of my usual reviews for this manga because, I'm sorry to say, I've never said this about a book before, but this was simply "trash". Follow the lives of rich high school students with no adult supervision who party, drink, smoke and sleep with each other as they plan devious revenge against anyone who ticks them off, whether it's their BFF or not. The publisher recommends for Older Teens; in my estimation that would be adult (18,19 and up). If it weren't for the Cybils I wouldn't have read the book in the first place. The title was a good clue, but turn the book over and the picture on the back cover is similar to something from a girlie magazine. And to prove my point on calling the book trash, in my estimation, (I can't believe I'm going to write this) but an example is that one of the girl's mother's gives her boyfriend a bj under a table in a restaurant. The rest of the book is no better. I have not read the books or seen the TV show so cannot make any comparison. The end. One star only because I can't officially give it 0/5.

    .... Stop looking at me that way. I'll admit it, I started watching Gossip Girls on Netflix and I happened to be at the dollar store, and saw this on the shelf... and for a buck, curiosity won out!As another reviewer said, it's rich white girl problems. No doubt about that. But if you enjoyed the Gossip Girl tv show, there spirit of that is certainly here. In addition, I also enjoyed the art in this book. It was easy to follow and pretty to look at, so that's always important in a graphic novel.Basically, if I saw the second one sitting at the dollar store, I'd probably grab that out of curiosity as well, because it didn't let me down -- but it's nothing I'll go hunting for in the bookstores.

    This book was pretty good. Although at some parts was "boring", but otherwise I enjoy it very much. I wish I could saw Serena a little more, but hopefully in the next book I will. Anyway, I found some parts humorous and pretty intense. It was good for what it was.

    a new way to read gossip girl and not just the same story from the 1st book. A GG fan must read.

    I selected this book since it is very popular with our patrons. It may be just the illustration style but I had a hard time telling the characters apart which made the conniving and backstabbing plot twists all the more difficult to follow.

    Good Morning Upper East Siders, gossip girl here, and do i have a scoop for you.After mysteriously leaving for boarding school S is back in town. Upon arriving she makes D her new boyfriend and her friendship with BFF B is unexistent after B found out what happened between S and N, who is her boyfriend. And as B always does, she plots revenge, this time she steals D from S. All i could say or think about was how shocked i was when i finished this book. While it contains many elements from the original Gossip Girl Book. However they changed so much of it. For example Jenny was not in this book, at all. It made me sad because in the books Jenny is definetly the one i could relate to the most. Also Blair and Dan?!?! Uhh what? That never happened in the books. She would never go anywhere near him. Thats just not how Blair works.What I did like though is that Chuck and Blairs relationship was portrayed nothing like the book series, but much more like what is seen on tv. Or well, not quite.I also have to comment on the drawings. I think they probably did best with Serena and Vanessa, as thats what i imagine they would look like when i read the books. Nate and Blair were okay. But Chuck and Dan were not portrayed as i would have expected. Chuck wears sunglasses. All the time. All of the parts he is in take place in doors, and he always has the sunglasses on. And Dan has glasses to. I mean, he doesnt look bad or anything, but i kind of imagined him as a guy with Adam Brody's face and Heath Ledgers hair from the Ten Things I Hate About You era.Anyway, the book is excellent for fans of the tv show, or the original books, or anyone who is into romantic triangles (which really arent triangles, theyre much bigger), or drama and gossip. and who am i? Thats one secret i'll never tell. You know you love me,xoxo.Gossip Girl

    I wanted to give it four stars, i really did, even five. It was so funny, i read it for about three hours. The only reason why i give it three stars is because... Couldn't Blair get revenge on Serena in any other way? Literally ANY other way. And the end? Ugh. I couldn't even believe that this happened. The reason why I enjoy any Gossip Girl book is because they are usually Dair-free. If something more happens in the second volume i would find Josh Safran himself and torture him until he realizes that this "brainchild" of his was the worst thing in Gossip Girl history. And i am also going to find the person who wrote this (not Cecily, because she is just an innocent victim) and yell at him for using the ideas of a man who was obviously on some really strong drugs. But besides that there were really nice Chuck and Blair scenes. Too bad that i couldn't enjoy them because somebody decided that the storyline from the worst season ever would make a good storyline in here as well. And just when i thought that the worst was over and i could again go back to the Dair-free world of Gossip Girl...there was more of it.

    ***Contains spoilers***This is more like 2.5 stars, but what the hell, I'll be generous! I actuully kind of liked it. But not in the way that I would normally like a book. This is actually quite bad, but that's why I like it. It's so bad that it's good. And I found it quite funny (even though I don't think that was the intention). I kind of liked how they twisted the novels and TV show into one, but at the same time it kind of showed that there was no realy original thought. They portrayed Blair, really well. She really was a bitch from start to end, so I liked that. I also like how Vanessa beat the crap out of her, so she got what she desereved. Also Chuck was more TV Chuck, kind of sleazy. But he refused to sleep with Blair at the end so maybe he has some kind of humanity. I didn't like Dan or Serena. Serena was like the stereotypical dumb blonde, which was annoying. And Dan was a dumbass. So yeah...I had parts I liked and parts I didn't like.

    Když bych to měla celkově shrnout, tak musím říct, že se mi tohle zpracování Gossip girl zrovna moc nezamlouvalo. Velkým plusem a lákadlem ale jsou ale rozhodně kresby, které jsou nádherné a je na nich vidět svět společenské smetánky, i přesto že je většina stránek čenobílých. Určitě byste si měli všimnout, že postavy nosí každou chvíli jiné oblečení- což muselo být pracné na kreslení- a odpovídá to pohledu na svět Upper East Side, kde se na oblečení klade velký důraz. I přes krásné kresby jsem ale nebyla spokojená a prostě mi tohle ztvárnění nesedlo. Jsem ale přesvědčená, že někdo by mohl být nadšený. No a pro mě to až taková ztráta času nebyla, prohlédla jsem si pěkné obrázky a přečtené jsem to měla rychle...celé review: http://www.infinity.delicate-flower.c...

    Já a Gossip girl to nemáme šťastné. Začala jsem to sledovat někde od středu, chytlo mě to, pak jsem něměla čas, tak jsem si dala pauzu a potom... nu, už to nebylo ono. Jsem ráda, že jsem to našla jako mangu, protože si konečně projíždím začátek (i když nemám čas - autobus do školy to zachraňuje)... :D Jediné, co mě doopravdy irituje je fakt, že v tom nejlepším mají chybu ve vázání/tisku, kdy osm jistých stran už bylo na začátku. Sice se tam nic klíčového nestalo - asi (a pokud ano, lehce se to dá odvodit), přesto... xP Jinak ale mangu jako takovou miluju, japonské kresby jsou jednoduše dokonalé, GG se líbí a určitě se poohlédnu po dalším díle... x))

    I already was a fan of the series before reading this, so this was a real treat. The story doesn't really follow the tv show or the original books, so there are some character discrepancies, but in this case, that made the story a bit more interesting (it would have been boring if I knew everything that was going to happen). The artist who adapted the story did an absolutely fabulous job as well. The characters were all beautiful and well suited to the story. If you are a fan of Gossip Girl, I definitely recommend giving it a read.

    That was weird. If the characters had different names, I wouldn´t have konown that it has something to do with the Tv show Gossip Girl. The storyline was very defferent, characters fell for different characters, acted differently. Some things were just too far fetched and too difficult to follow, you have to make your own assumptions... but manga tends to be like that, doesn´t it? I wouldn´t know, it´s my first manga ever. But the illustrations were beautiful, nicely done!

    naja ich weiß nicht ,ich finde die serie natürlich um einiges besser denn sie gehört zu meinen Top 3 Serien ever .Leider hat mich der manga total enttäuscht mir kommen alle personen so eoskalt vor als ob sie keine gefühle haben ,die Story is voll anders und gefällt mir so nicht ich werde nach diesem teil nicht weiterlesen

    Vzhledem k tomu, že se mi Gossip girl nelíbilo ani jako knížka, tak se mi moc nelíbila ani jako manga. Obecně mám mangu hodně ráda, ale tohle se moc nepovedlo. Všichni mi připadali v obličejích hodně stejní a postavy se od sebe těžko rezeznávaly. Ani na poslední stránce sem nevěděla kdo je kdo a to je velké mínus.

    the book was mostly about rich girls living the high life. Blaire Who is bullimic .is very jealous of her friend serina. i enjoyed the book i found it very intense. i think people who likes teen-drama and gossip would enjoy this book. I think they should've added more action to it. i have no question for the authr and i have no advice for the author

    True confessions: I was a huge Gossip Girl fan way back when - and when I saw this I was a little giddy. I was pleasantly surprised. It's a lot of fun (reminds me of Peach Girl). It had a lot of the same sort of humor that the early books did when they weren't taken too seriously. I think the TV show sort of ruined that. Looking forward to volume 2.

    Ett helt ok album och en trevlig läsning, men tror inte jag kommer läsa fortsättningen om jag inte hittar dem gratis/billigt. Hade inte heller bangat på att ha allt i färg och inte bara de första få sidorna. Men snyggt var det i alla fall ^^Väldigt annorlunda från tv-serien, var egentligen bara namnen som var samma annars var allt olika.

    I got this out of the library after finishing all the series's of Gossip Girl on Netflix and I liked it but despite getting the next one out I only got half way through it before I started reading another book. I think I was mainly interested in this because I wanted more Gossip Girl but although it was quite a good storyline it was too much of an expectation after watching it all I guess...

    Eh. It was okay. The one thing that I don't like about these types of books is the way that the girls with short hair look like boys and sometimes it's just hard to keep them straight. The story was a bit different, but that's okay.

    Ga pernah baca Gossip Girl, tapi nonton 2 season drama serinya. Beberapa cerita di graphic novelnya beda (banget) sama versi drama seri, tapi gw rasa karena ilustratornya orang korea, ceritanya jadi lebih lucu sampe tingkat bikin saya ngakak di perpus.Bacaan guilty pleasure, indeed.

    This is a meh adaptation of Gossip Girl as a manga. Fans of the TV series will find nothing new here, only a remixed version of things they already know all about. The art wasn't bad though. Even for big fans, I'd say skip this.

    I enjoyed the story however there were a few placed I would have found the story a bit confusing if I did not already know the characters and the backstory from reading the original novels.
