Manas pārdomas

Phoney Bone pēc savas kārtējās neizdevušās mahinācijas tiek padzīts no Boneville (ne pirmoreiz), un tikai, pateicoties savu brālēnu Fone Bone un Smiley Bone palīdzībai, viņam izdodas paglābties. Pirmā grāmata sākas ar Bone brālēniem tuksnesī, kur karstums var pielikt ātru punktu viņu izglābšanās veiksmei. Par laimi, nejauši tiek atrasta karte uz ieleju, bet pēkšņs milzīgs siseņu bara uzlidojuma liek viņiem pašķirties. Rezultātā katrs no Bone brālēniem ielejā nokļūst pa vienam, kur viņiem lemts kļūt par nozīmīgu daļu tās episko mērogu piedzīvojumos!

Pirmie cilvēki, kurus Fone Bone sastop ir no pirmā skata vienkārša lauku meitene Thorn un viņas vecmāmiņa. Bet, notikumiem attīstoties, top skaidrs, ka neviena no viņām nav parasta. Viņas uzņem savā aizgādībā gan Fone, gan arī vēlāk abus pārējos, kuri pārbauda pacietības un viesmīlības līmeni līdz maksimumam. :D

Varens ir ne tikai grāmatas apjoms, bet arī saturs tur līdzi visu 1332 lpp garumā. Vēl tikai nesen, pirms 15 gadiem, noslēdzās postošs karš ar žurkradījumiem. Tas bija arī gals karalistei un vismaz oficiāli arī karaliskajai ģimenei. Tagad miers ir trausls, uz sabrukuma robežas un Bone brālēnu uzrašanās ielejā kalpo kā pēdējais piliens, kas atkal nosver kausus par labu kara takai. Bez tā visa vēl ir gan pūķi, gan noslēpumains ļaunais spēks ar atbilstošām manierēm un ļaunajiem smiekliem, kā arī visādi runājoši dzīvnieki, un vēl daudz kā cita aizraujoša.

Galvenie tēli Bone brālēni autoram sanākuši super! Fone Bone ir tas prātīgais, gudrais, kurš vispirms domās par citiem. Smiley Bone vienmēr un visu laiku gudro savu nākamo shēmu, ar kuru kļūt stāvus bagātam. Parasti tas iekļauj citu apčakarēšanu, bet pēc viņa loģikas, paši vien vainīgi. Un Smiley Bone ir mūžīgais optimists un jautrības avots; viņš arī parasti iesaistās brālēna shēmās, kamēr Fone pēc tam ir spiests gudrot, kā viņus paglābt. Smaids un smiekli par dažādām izdarībām garantēti.

Nezinu kā citiem, bet man Bone brālēni atgādināja trīs tēlus no animācijas pasaules – Ed (Smiley Bone), Edd (Fone Bone) n Eddy(Phoney Bone). Skatoties gadu ciparus Vikipēdijā, jāsecina, ka komikss bijis iedvesmas avots multenei (vērts noskatīties!), nevis otrādi.

Grāmata izpilda Prizewinner kategoriju manā bingo kartītē!

Gene Luen Yang – American Born Chinese

118944

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

All Jin Wang wants is to fit in. When his family moves to a new neighborhood, he suddenly finds that he’s the only Chinese American student at his school. Jocks and bullies pick on him constantly, and he has hardly any friends. Then, to make matters worse, he falls in love with an all-American girl…

Born to rule over all the monkeys in the world, the story of the Monkey King is one of the oldest and greatest Chinese fables. Adored by his subjects, master of the arts of kung-fu, he is the most powerful monkey on earth. But the Monkey King doesn’t want to be a monkey. He wants to be hailed as a god…

Chin-Kee is the ultimate negative Chinese stereotype, and he’s ruining his cousin Danny’s life. Danny’s a popular kid at school, but every year Chin-Kee comes to visit, and every year Danny has to transfer to a new school to escape the shame. This year, though, things quickly go from bad to worse…

These three apparently unrelated tales come together with an unexpected twist, in a modern fable that is hilarious, poignant and action-packed. American Born Chinese is an amazing rise, all the way up to the astonishing climax–and confirms what a growing number of readers already know: Gene Yang is a major talent.

Craig Thompson – Habibi

10138607

Grāmatas apraksts no Goodreads/Synopsis from Goodreads:

From the internationally acclaimed author of Blankets (“A triumph for the genre.”Library Journal), a highly anticipated new graphic novel.
 
Sprawling across an epic landscape of deserts, harems, and modern industrial clutter, Habibi tells the tale of Dodola and Zam, refugee child slaves bound to each other by chance, by circumstance, and by the love that grows between them. We follow them as their lives unfold together and apart; as they struggle to make a place for themselves in a world (not unlike our own) fueled by fear, lust, and greed; and as they discover the extraordinary depth—and frailty—of their connection.

At once contemporary and timeless, Habibi gives us a love story of astounding resonance: a parable about our relationship to the natural world, the cultural divide between the first and third worlds, the common heritage of Christianity and Islam, and, most potently, the magic of storytelling.
