Having enjoyed the Netflix Heartstopper TV adaptation, I wanted to read the source material: Heartstopper by Alice Oseman.
This is volume two from the series; I also have volumes three and four lined up, borrowed from the local library.
Of course, I already know the story, so there were no surprises. What amazed me, though, was just how close to the book the TV show is. The actors look just like the characters Oseman drew in the book; it’s almost as if the book was made after the TV show, rather than the other way around. It’s brilliant that Netflix remained so faithful to the source material.
If you’ve not read or watched Heartstopper yet you’re in for a treat, regardless of which one you start with: the books or the TV show.
This is uplifting, joyfully heart-warming stuff. Highly recommended!
