    1. After this year’s sexism row about the all-male shortlist for the Grand Prix at the international comics festival of Angoulême, the festival this week announced that Posy Simmonds will preside over the Grand Jury of the 2017 edition. The other members of the Jury comply with gender parity, which is hopefully a breakthrough in helping female authors of graphic novels to get the attention they deserve. This news stirred me to read Simmonds’s delightful graphic novel Tamara Drewe once more. Ha [...]


    2. fulfilling book riot's 2018 read harder challenge task #4: a comic written and drawn by the same person(although i could also count it for #15: a one-sitting book or #18: a comic that isn’t published by marvel, dc, or image.)extra points given to me, by me, for choosing a book that i have owned for more than a year. review to come.


    3. Where I got the book: my bookshelf.I'm not sure how well known Posy Simmonds is over here in the US; I've been collecting her adult graphic work since the 1980s when she had a much-loved comic strip in The Guardian. Tamara Drewe is a full-length graphic novel that deals, as Simmonds' work very often does, with the English literary life and the coveted status symbols of the country weekend cottage and, in the case of Gemma Bovery, the "little place in France."Here literature and country life over [...]


    4. I am on a graphic novel kick this weekend, but don’t worry, I have a week of Grossmith, Dostoevksy and Nicola Barker lined up, so normal service will be resumed. This one is known mostly in the UK and was serialised in The Guardian, then turned into a movie with the brilliant Roger Allam and Tamsin Greig. Being a parochial, very English piece gives it little international appeal but it is spiky and witty in a BBC Radio 4 sort of way. The movie irons out several crinkles in the original, such a [...]


    5. Strong examination of rural life suffers from the blurb description "that rare graphic novel for adults". I am unfamiliar with the literary precedents of Thomas Hardy so I cannot examine the novel on that level, nor can I see how it could adequately be translated to a film (admittedly Gemma Arterton is the perfect fit for the title role).A mixture of first person narrative, newspaper articles and comic sections, Tamara Drewe encapsulates a year in the lives of three narrators, their relationship [...]


    6. This was an amazing read. Funny, entertaining, tragic, cynical. You smell the country and you hear the British accent - with cows in the background. In the beginning, I felt a bit skeptical towards the non-classical form of the book, half-written and half-drawn, but this allowed for more details, more feelings, and also an additional kind of humour to be inserted in the story. And the story itself is great! (made me think of Louise Rennison's "Georgia Nicholson", for older readers).


    7. I've never read Far From the Madding Crowd, which this comic is loosely based on, so I'll have to respond on the merits of it on its own. The characters are well-drawn and the plot well-crafted. I will say, even though Tamara Drewe seems like she's supposed to be the main character (hence the title), in many ways she is the least developed. This lack of development seems intentional to enhance the tension, but since so much of the plot centers on her, her shallowness can be distracting. Like a l [...]


    8. Posy Simmonds' graphic novel, originally serialised in the Guardian's Review supplement, follows the chain of events that unfolds when the eponymous Tamara Drewe - a former wallflower who, via plastic surgery and increased confidence, has transformed herself into a stunning and much-desired woman - returns to her parents' country home. There, her life fatefully intersects with a number of local residents, most significantly the inhabitants of a nearby literary retreat; its married owners, Nichol [...]


    9. 74th book read in 2017.Number 632 out of 638 on my all time book list.One of the most boring books I have ever opened.


    10. (Reprinted from the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography [cclapcenter:]. I am the original author of this essay, as well as the owner of CCLaP; it is not being reprinted illegally.)As the graphic novel gets older and older as an artistic format, it of course continues to become more and more diverse and interesting as well, and with there being with each passing year more and more types of full-length image-based narrative tales out there for all of us to enjoy; take for example British [...]


    11. For a Thomas Hardy novel, “Far From the Madding Crowd” is a lighthearted romp: though it’s full of darkness and death, at least the two main characters, shepherd Gabriel Oak and independent beauty Bathsheba Everdene, remain alive and wed at the denouement. Posy Simmonds’ bang-up graphic novel “Tamara Drewe,” a riff on “Madding,” is far funnier and less bleak than its inspiration, but she doesn’t shy away from modern takes on Hardy’s themes of jealousy, unintended consequences [...]


    12. Apparently they are making a movie out of this book? I will probably go see it even though it will likely be terrible. I picked the book up because it was on a Flashlight Worthy list of Best Graphic Novels about Women and you know how I love women, right? Anyway, on to the book. This is the story of a pretty, young newspaper journalist who shakes up the small British town where she grew up when she returns to her family's home. The action takes place over the course of a year at a writers retrea [...]


    13. This book was about how men make women objects, and how women feel pressurised by men and other women to conform to their expectations. This was made abundantly clear to me by the daughter of the main character, who appeared every now and again, and, in the guise of explaining to her mother her PhD, explicitly stated the themes of the book. I think this book would have been stronger if we had some grasp on the main character. She appears quite late in the work--as do the novels two other more in [...]


    14. I'd almost give this 5 stars. Picked it up in the library on a whim, knowing nothing about Simmonds, and was very impressed. It's not laid out like a traditional paneled comic, and there's rather a lot of text, but the narration by different characters (serif v sans-serif, which is clever) really adds something and her delicate art is lovely. Those two things would be enough, but she's thrown in a smart and twisty story of affairs and death and nosiness. There are some choices I'm not sure are r [...]


    15. combined with reading this piece in New York Magazine (nymag/relationships/sex/47), I fell into a long running contemplation of (in)fidelity, self-esteem, trust, and marriage in general. If you are really attached to your huffing habit you might want to avoid reading this graphic novel- not graphic in that way but still. I read and enjoyed Simmonds' Gemma Bovary about a year ago or more. I enjoyed this one more although the discovery of Simmonds' work then was more of a joy as it was all new to [...]


    16. 3.5Bueno me llevó su tiempo terminarlo, pero es que el estilo en el que la autora cuenta la historia con mucho texto en ocasiones, recortes de diarios, cartas, etc. volvían la lectura más pesada de lo esperado.Tamara Drewe vuelve a su hogar familiar levantando revuelo en este pueblito inglés en el que nunca pasa nada interesante. Seguimos su historia que revolotea alrededor de sus amoríos. Después tenemos la estancia Stonefield del famoso escritor Nicholas Hardiman y su esposa Beth, a la q [...]


    17. Loved it. Could not put it down. It is cosy and charming and almost painful to read due to how incredibly well observed and realised it is. It is as if Posy Simmonds has managed to go to a typical English village, distil and bottle the essence and feel of life there, add in her own dashes of drama and intrigue and the product is this graphic novel. From the angry locals who hate outsiders for turning their once functional farmland into 'extortionate real estate', to the bored teenagers who const [...]


    18. Posy Simmonds, Tamara Drewe (Mariner, 2008)If Henry James had lived long enough to get himself into the graphic novel movement, and embrace the more explicit nature of today's plotlines, I can easily see him having written something along the lines of Tamara Drewe, Posy Simmonds' easy, slightly seedy comedy of manners set in the British countryside.Loosely based on Hardy's Far from the Madding Crowd, Tamara Drewe is the story of a rural town in Britain divided into upstairs (a posh writers' comm [...]


    19. Simmonds loosely follows the plot of “Far from the Madding Crowd” in this beautifully illustrated graphic novel, but her sensibility is very different. She is a social satirist rather than a tragedian, an Austen rather than a Hardy. Many of her funniest moments – and she is deliciously funny - are when she mischievously contrasted what happened in 1874 with what happened in 2006. The Valentine is a good example. Bathsheba had sent a “gorgeously illuminated” Valentine card to Boldwood, [...]


    20. I'm one of those people who likes to read the book before I see the movie, but I did it differently this time. I didn't even know there was a book. I saw the movie, of the same name, on DVD and found out about the book by watching some of the bonus features. The book is a graphic novel, and was available at my library, so I thought "why not?" It only took me a couple of evenings to read it, even though I had to wait until after my kids were in bed to do so. Tamara Drewe is a woman who moves back [...]


    21. An interesting approach to Thomas Hardy's Far From The Madding Crowd (books.google/books?id=Fj_6), this graphic novel is a wordy but beautiful expression of the culture and relationships of the middle-aged writer's workshop circle. When Ms. Drewe appears at her childhood farmstead whose environment and principality as a whole is being replaced with old money city-dwellers, she shakes up the small writer's community near the home in showing up with a nose job and a glamorous lifestyle. This book [...]


    22. This is a fascinating soap opera of sorts. Beth runs a writer's retreat in the British countryside, while her husband, a mildly successful mystery novelist, bangs out novel after novel in the garden shed. Their world is bucolic on the surface, but Nick's philandering ways often put a crimp in things. It all comes to a head when Tamara Drewe, a journalist, moves into the family farm next door. Tamara was not terribly good looking once upon a time, but she's recently had a nose job and is using he [...]


    23. Beautiful to look at, though a fairly unlikeable story. This is the bit where I admit I've never read 'Far From The Madding Crowd', only cheated with the summary on (and in summary, it reads like a year's worth of 'McLeod's Daughters' condensed, sheep bloat and all). It was a bit hard to find a character to warm to in this lot, but I felt for Casey, maybe because I'd be the sidekick who looks less than great in jeans and who is too anxious to inhale computer cleaner, too. The others seemed to b [...]


    24. Really liked this second book based loosely on a Great Novel. Gemma Bovary was terrific, based on Madame Bovary, obviously, and this is more loosely based on Tomas Hardy's Far From the Madding Crowd, updating it with a feminist twist, satirizing academics and the artist/writers crowd. Simmonds is, I take it, less known here in the states than abroad, but she should be better known here. She is a deft artist and smart and funny and a good observer of the contemporary scene. Tom Wolfe writes a rav [...]


    25. A groundbreaking marriage of novel and comic book. Really a lot going on here, more than in most graphic novels. Seamless segues from text to comic book panels and back again, and it all works in this meeting of murder mystery and comedy of modern manners. Posey places her story in a rural English retreat for writers, which allows for a fascinating intermingling of glitterai from the literary and pop worlds with regular folks as well as teenage working class chuffers. All the levels you'd expect [...]


    26. This book was really well done, and probably the first time I've ever read a graphic novel with prose that I didn't mind reading. This follows a bunch of desperate, sad, depressing, and pathetic characters at some writers retreat whom are all impacted by this Tamara Drewe woman. Sounds like a good time right? Well, the characters are all well realized, and it's interesting following the slices of their life that Simmonds exposes us to, even if none of the people are especially likable. Posy Simm [...]


    27. Echt ontzettend leuk, dit literaire stripboek! De strip is losjes gebaseerd op 'Far from the madding Crowd' van Thomas Hardy, maar het verhaal speelt zich af in een hedendaagse setting. Tamara Drewe keert terug naar het huis van haar overleden ouders op het platteland. Zij brengt daar vele hoofden op hol, vooral de schrijvers in een nabij gelegen rustiek onderkomen, waar (aspirant) schrijvers in alle rust aan hun boeken kunnen werken. De situatie loopt volledig uit de klauwen, al kun je daar Tam [...]


    28. I really enjoyed "Tamara Drewe"! First, the illustrations are wonderful -- the scenery and colors are delicate and finely drawn, and the expressiveness of the faces of the characters helps to enhance and develop the story. There is a very well realized coordination of text and picture, where each element builds upon the other and produces something greater than the whole. Also, Thomas Hardy is one of my favorite authors, so the resonance with his "Far From the Madding Crowd" was especially pleas [...]


    29. Tamara Drewe est le premier roman graphique que je lis. J'avoue avoir été assez surprise par le format mais on s'y fait vite.Je connaissais déjà l'histoire après avoir vu le film tiré du livre mais je ne me souvenais pas de certains passages (peut-être ont-ils été modifiés?), et j'ai bien aimé retrouvé les personnages. Les dessins sont plutôt jolis. Pas un gros coup de cœur mais je suis contente de l'avoir lu.


    30. A slight confession that my review was stimulated by the film of this cartoon book being on Swedish TV last night.However I have always been a fan of Posy Simmonds' cartoon strip and this book brings them together. The story is very 'English' and a little stereotypedall village, eccentric characters, hidden lust and hidden naughtiness. It is though very very funny and not the least beautifully illustrated and it is quite difficult not to fall in love with Tamara just a little.
