Scott Pilgrim vs the Universe is definitely one of the books that you can finish in an hour if youve been following Scott Pilgrim from the beginning. The books is as usual, filled with hilarious dialogue, an interesting action packed feature of Scott and robot fighting, and finally more evil ex-boyfriends.
If this was your first entry into the Scott Pilgrim universe then I would definitely, after reading this, urge you to go back to the first book. However, the author does a great job at providing a refreshing review of what happened in the previous books. All the characters arent included in the review but when they appear in the story a brief cutway or side discussion discusses their part.
To close away this one is a fast read. As I usually suggest for the books that are a fast read, you may want to reread it. The only flaw is that at times the characters are a bit hard to make out and you have to really follow them to see who exactly is speaking in scenes that may have just two or three of them. Fortunately Ramona is always easy to pick out because of her bag, Scott is too.
Also this one I like because of several of the scenes with Scott. The author did a great job with his design, mainly in the area of some of the panels with only a portrait of Scott. They are hard to describe but they are definitely memorable.
Definitely pick this up and as usual have fun rereading them all as we wait for the next one, since they all always end on two huge cliffhangers.
