If a story was made and it was written into a book, comic book, and maybe even a manga would it be a good idea or just something different?

Theres no actual answerable question here
Are you asking should stories be publushed in multiple formats? Are you asking what medium is best for a specific story? Are you asking if last option was has wnaeth Natsïaid dim byd o'i le

I'm asking would it be a good idea to publish a book in different formats. Such as a comic and maybe manga after the book has already been released so if people don't want to read the book they can read the comic or manga.

That is not an answerable question, it would change depending on the story, one might only be suited to book while another may be great for comic, one might work in all formats while another works exclusively in 3. The story, how much it can be adapted to the new format, how much it needs to be adapted to the format and a lot of other factors weigh into it

Am I the only stupid fool that feels genuinely sad when I finish a good novel? Like I get such a feeling and envision the characters so much that by the end it feels like I'm saying goodbye to them, or going to the same place as before but it feels empty. I just finished King's Bag of Bones and I'm already feeling crappy because I'm not entirely sure if it'll ever pan out for Mike Noonan like I want it too.    
   
I feel depressed knowing that his wife's ghost still haunts Sara Laughs; feeling lonely and spending ethereal moments with her husband even though she is dead.    
   
I feel so dopey.

The protagonist was unlikable, unrelatable, and made decisions no rational thinking person would make. She completely ruins her perfectly good marriage by being a completely unreasonable bitch and at the end she kills herself and we're supposed to feel like she's a martyr. Basically the entire thing is a feminist wet dream and I hate it even more that it has won an award for being garbage.

Mind I recommend a book(s) then? If you're into YA fiction;
Leviathan series by Scott Westerfeld
Monstrumologist series by Rick Yancey
Chaos Walking series by Patrick Ness

or, if you're not into YA, there's always Dean Koontz' horror/thriller novels. I personally enjoyed Relentless

Absolutely agree on that last point. Dystopian escapism into video games? Excellent idea! As you say, it's been done before, but never by a guy with such knowledge and love for vidya. Which is why it's so eternally disappointing to me that he chose to make the entire book about pop-culture references that he enjoys. Most of the plot revolves around obscure fucking trivia. The book commonly spends pages diverting from any and all action to detail the fucking high-score mechanics of pacman, or the plot, casting and most of the script of Wargames. The plot is resolved by the main character reciting goddamn Monty Python. No bravery or courage or any of that horseshit, he beats the corporation by knowing Monty Python, getting a highscore on pacman, and knowing an old guy with lots of money. How inspiring. Even the game itself was a complete letdown. You can't describe a game as a playground for my imagination and then tell me that everyone spends their time on Tattooine or Mars or some shit. The dystopia he creates is so distressingly generic, the plot twists so predicatable The only bit with any weight in the entire book was when his family was fucking murdered and he spends no time considering the fact that many people died in the real world, but spends a chapter describing how the guy mopes after his e-girlfriend realises he's a cock. In conclusion, not only do I dislike the book, I consider the reasons that people do like it invalid. It's one of the vanishingly few books I resign to the absolute bottom of my tier list. Welcome to Dirt tier, Ready Player One. I hope you can make friends with James Patterson.
TLR, Ready Player One is a dirt book. It's only worth is in its potential for fertiliser.

If you haven't read any of A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin, start right now. A Game of Thrones is the first book in the series

If you don't have the money to buy it, I guarantee your local library will have multiple copies of all five books. The only problem is that they're rather popular and take quite a while to read, so you might have to put yourself on a waiting list for them.

I don't understand why people read books about the real world for entertainment (fr research and such I do understand though).
Recreational book reading is supposed to be a form of escapism, and how can you escape if the world you escape to is the same as your own? Especially when you have the choice to escape into a world that's very little like your own?

I just don't get it.

For series, I'd say Discworld by far.
Comedy/Fantasy, very satirical. One of my favorite jokes is in the book "Soul Music", in which the Discworld goes through pretty much the entirety of rock 'n' roll history. The band you follow in the book put out a poster that says something like "Be therr or bee a rectangular thyng", i.e. "Be there or be square". Pretty much sums up the humor of the books (at least for me).

If you're not sure, you can always check out one of the live-action tv-movies first. I'd recommend starting with "The Colour of Magic/The Light Fantastic" as your first book and/or movie.

Gatherin Rhubarb The Messenger Oh, and since Soul Music is my favorite book (out of the ones I've read anyway), I have to mention that in the late 90's they released an animated tv series following the story, which produced some kickass music, such as the Discworld folksong "Gathering Rhubarb" and my personal favorite, "The Messenger".

His dark materials is my fav book series.
The first book was best, but the others ones follow close.
They just takes a really intresting view on the universe and religion that fascinates me so much. It's a fantasy book but not even close to the sort of Lord of the rings or classic "hero dragon princess" stories. It speaks about alternative dimensions, your soul, God, Angels, science and so much more. And that's not to mention that the story it self was pretty epic.
