[Read in French, but my review is in English, quand même.]

I didn't expect to be captivated by a graphic novel yet again (after Persepolis), but I was this time. "Aya" oozes charm. You take a volume in your hands and land in a far-away, but irresistibly cosy place where people are so much closer to each other than what you see around. At the same time, although the names, dresses and proverbs are exotic, the relationships and emotions couldn't be easier to relate to.

Also, "Aya" is almost encyclop

Aah, en finissant ce volume, j'avais l'impression que tous les arcs narratifs étaient parvenus à une conclusion, et effectivement l'éditeur confirme que c'est le dernier tome.
Du coup, je mets la note maximale, parce que j'ai vraiment apprécié cette série.
Le dessin peut sembler maladroit / raide par moments, mais il est quand même élégant, documenté, naturel.
Et l'histoire est est toujours aussi attachante.

I enjoyed that comic book immensely. The author brought up many topics that are still being discussed nowadays such as immigration, LGBTQ, unscrupulous professors etc… It is the first book from Aya’s collections that I read, and I cannot wait to start the other ones.
The author’s explanation at the end of the book gives the book a bit more authenticity and allowed me to understand the text better.
Overall, I highly recommend to someone who is looking to read a comic that offers a different perspec

This book is really awesome. There is just some "spicy" parts in the book. So just a reminder...

A compilation of Aya books #4-6, which are kinda teenage soap opera in style (like Betty and Veronica) but less vapid (even though I love Betty and Veronica... I am specifically thinking of how fashion is an important part of the artwork) and set in Paris, Abijan, and surrounding villages in Ivory Coast. I'm going to look for the other volumes as well.

Una lástima que las historias de Aya terminen con esta sexta y última entrega. Insisto en que amerita una edición integral.

SI bien en esta ocasión se resuelven varios de los nudos dramáticos o argumentales, hay otros que se enredan o que deliberadamente quedan sin resolver. Lo que da pie a pensar que habría una parte 7 o una continuación en cine, no queda claro, porque buscando por ahí no existen certezas al respecto.

La vida en Yopougon sigue a su ritmo y nada la va a detener. Lo que me hace p

This volume collects albums four through six of Marguerite Abouet and Clément Oubrerie's series about the young woman Aya and her friends in an Ivory Coast suburb in the late 1970s to early 1980s, which began in Aya: Life in Yop City .

It is nice to reconnect with the various characters in the large ensemble, some of whom (like the hairdresser Innocent, who goes to Paris) are given a bit more space in this second half of the series. As such the series continues to deliver on its basic premise of

This was a really fun read. I wish there were more, but I think that this is the last installment. The graphic novel is suppose to give you insight into how life is in a Côte d'Ivoire or Ivory Coast town. I hope people from this area are not totally like these characters. Aya, the main character, seems to always be in someone else business and they all seem to speak in parables. I couldn't get the reference of some of the parables, but many I understood. If someone talked to me in this form, I w ...more

Dit is het laatste deel in de reeks en het einde voelt nogal gehaast aan, alsof de auteurs er vervroegd een punt hebben achter gezet. Vooral het verhaal van Innocent vraagt uitdrukkelijk om meer. Helaas hebben de auteurs in interviews laten weten dat we niet moeten rekenen op een nieuwe 'Aya', dat ze er voorlopig geen zin meer in hebben ( bv. : ). Spijtig. Desalniettemin heb ik van de eerste tot de laatste pagina enorm genoten van deze charmante strip die ...more
A gem.

There are additional characters and thus more story lines to follow in this volume, so at times it was a little confusing to keep everyone's new relationships and drama in mind, but still wholly enjoyable and charming. These added story lines also mean you spend less time with everyone...but I'm hoping there will just be more books to remedy that!

Una buena colección de 6 tomos que termina bien abierta en sus tramas, pero que ofreció una mirada desconocida para mí, pero muy interesante, social y cultural. Muy buen trabajo sobre la cotidianeidad de los marfileños (?)

I really like the first book when drawn and quarterly published it and it finally finished but it is real tough reading the last three books at once. All the flaws just jump out at you. I'm happy that the got to finish it but I feel it was a little bit like be careful what you wish for
Favorite book from series! I seriously hope that this one isn't the end of the Aya series. The way intended seems like there should be more to the story. I'm happy everyone is happy...ok not EVERYONE....,,but I want more!

A couple of the plot thread resolutions were a little awkward and there was too much going on but overall a good read and I'm so glad I decided to go back and finish this series.

Hilarious African soapie with feisty heroines, brave heroes, derpy anti-heroes and happy endings for everyone. (Well, almost everyone.)
Énorme coup de coeur pour cette excellente série. Les histoires se dénouent dans ce sixième et dernier tome.

There is no way that can be the finale - I guess I'm just supposed to assume the best for everyone but I need more Yop City!

As a conclusion to the series, I think it could have wrapped things up better but it was more of a good thing in all.
Excellent read, it was better than the first and that's saying a lot. I would recommend these books to all.
