Fabrizia De Caro De Caro from Las Cañas, Nicaragua
I know this is shallow, but one of the stuffs I like about graphic singulars is that they're such fast reads. It was extremely satisfying to complete Yang's funny, engaging, and wise yarn in under an stint - which included lingering over the simple, colorful artwork. Yang weaves together three distinct stories that generate adept insights into racial identity, adolescent sorrow, and the stupidity of hubris. Although I found each sketch interesting, my favorite was the mythos of the Gorilla Monarch, whose astounding self-assurance first commemorates him as god "equal to atmosphere," then brings him low as a stubborn but eventually devoted slave of the One Who Is. In the end, ancient metaphor and pop culture merge seamlessly to showcase a particular American evidence - and produce a brisk, compelling teatime read.
Fast paced, easy reading. However I can't understand why people read this fiction novel as if there the biblical & religious evidences are true.
I love her writing way, but the content wasn't great.
