We rated this book:


Having never heard of the podcast but saw the book’s marketing claim of being based on the smash-hit podcast, I was intrigued. The book is set in a dystopian world where monsters are attacking humans living in the Bubble. As a result, a new trendy gig economy and side hustle emerges to hunt the monsters via the Huntr app.

I get that this was supposed to be a satire and a parody on millennials, but I didn’t find the story that interesting. I found some of the stereotypes like beard hipster guy and peanut-free parents rather outdated and boring. I didn’t think it was funny that Book Club Mom’s hive monster was defeated with the serenade of a John Meyer song. I couldn’t get into any of the characters, except for Mitch who was somewhat funny and likable. Despite some funny moments in the story, I really struggled with finishing this graphic novel. Usually, I finish graphic novels in one sitting, but I could not stay focused while reading /Bubble/. As much as I love graphic novels, sadly, this graphic novel just wasn’t for me.
