4.0 out of 5 stars Great book!
Would have liked to see more in it (but when it comes to good stories, who doesn't?), but other than that, great Airbender book and look into Zuko's experience.

3.0 out of 5 stars M nights avatar
The book is a black and white manga style with the characters designs as from m.night shamalamadingdong. It was an alright quick read but isnt completely necessary for the avatar series. if you can get it for pretty cheap its not bad.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why Zuko Was Banished, Jan. 24 2011

(TOP 50 REVIEWER)    (HALL OF FAME)   
This review is from: The Last Airbender: Prequel: Zuko's Story (Paperback)
Reason for Reading: This was a Cybils '10 nominee and as a panelist for Graphic Novels was required reading for me. The panelists did not receive a review copy from the publisher and, I, unfortunately, was unable to find a copy before our nominations were due. My copy from Interlibrary Loan request had just now come in.

I have not seen this movie, though I am a fan of M. Night Shyamalan movies even when the critics trash them. I have watched the cartoon some years ago when my son was younger, it was one of his favourites but he no longer watches it and while I saw it I must admit to not really paying attention to the overall plot. This is to say I'm coming to the book with very little knowledge, except knowing about the Avatar.

From what I can gather this is simply a very short story of how and why Zuko was banished to find the Avatar and follows him on the first stages of that journey. It is really the story of how he changed from a spoilt, selfish, youngster with no feelings for anyone but himself into a more mature person who is learning to respect others and how his feelings of contempt for his uncle gradually change to honour. It is an interesting, exciting story but definitely aimed at the movie audience. The book ends mid-action with a to-be-continued and there is a follow-up manga of the movie. The book is shorter than the number of pages indicate also as a good portion of the last pages are "Bonus Material" showing a manga writer's script on one page and the artist's sketches from the script on the other.
