really liked it
bookshelves: 2008, comics-graphic_novels-illustrated, relationshipsy, middle-east, family_families
Read in November, 2008

** spoiler alert ** Very modern-looking graphic style, the drawings looked a bit like they could be on album covers or in hip-advertising, which was a bit off-putting sometimes, but ultimately didn't detract from a compelling story. Koby's character was a little unsympathetic, but I liked the technique of describing the more interesting character of Numi through his somewhat stunted eyes. It's basically a very good story of a young man who hasn't yet acknowledged the weight of the wounds done to him by his irresponsible father. Very subtle, and admirably complex in terms of how the relationships are drawn.
