I have been a wrestling fan for a long time and remember the feud between Andre the Giant and Hulk Hogan. I also know how much respect many of the wrestlers have for Andre the Giant. This graphic novel was relatively short but with a lot of information. I did not really know the story of Andre and was actually a little teary during a couple of sections in this story. Andre Roussimoff made the best of a bad situation. He was a huge boy and man who tried to make a living the best way he could. I enjoyed reading about his journey, his daughter, his struggles and his triumphs. The forward from his daughter was very touching. I would recommend this book to any wrestling fan and to those who like biographies. Younger readers might need a little background information before reading this story, but I think they would enjoy it as well. I received a copy of this book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
