Scott Pilgrim is the epic series of graphic novels by Brian Lee O’Malley. The hero (Scott) needs to defeat a series of super-evil ex boyfriends to be with the girl he loves. I know what you are thinking: an amazing book where the boy is after the damsel in distress. But this girl is no damsel in distress; Ramona Flowers is a hardcore delivery girl who also fights a couple of Scott’s ex girlfriends.
Scott’s taste in girlfriends appears to be pretty consistent, as all the exes have a thirst for violence. For starters there’s Knives Chau, his 17-year-old ex, who is obsessed with him and would do anything to get him back…even assassinate his new girlfriend. Added to that Ramona has to contend with famous singer Envy Adams, who’s jealous of Scott’s new relationship. What will she do to get him back?
This book has also been turned into an amazing motion picture called Scott Pilgrim vs The World (which is the name of the second book of the series) .The movie and the book makes Scott Pilgrim’s world seem like a game, where he can get upgrades and coins for defeating his enemies. He can even get extra lives! With the help from his band, friends and his cool gay room-mate Wallace(as described in the book), will he get the girl of his dreams and live happily ever after?
