    A Longa Noite de um Povo por Barbara Demick (lorax)
    lorax: Pyongyang is an outsider's view of the one part of the country where foreigners are generally permitted; Nothing to Envy is an inside look at ordinary life elsewhere in the country where the situation is even grimmer.

    Siberiak: My Cold War Adventure on the River Ob por Jenny Jaeckel (legxleg)
    legxleg: Both are graphic novel memoirs about trips to foreign countries. Please note that Siberiak is about the author's experiences as a teenager while the narrator of Pyongyang is an adult, and I think that their ages do necessarily inform their experiences.

The drawings and format of ‘Pyongyang: a journey through North Korea’ are amazing and the fact you can ‘see’ Guy Delisle’s experiences through his drawings really adds to the purpose of this genre of writing (In fact if all travelogues were of this ilk it wouldn’t be the worse thing!) Equally, the content of the work - two months in the most guarded and clandestine country of the last century - is captivating. The words and pictures combine to evoke a tangible sense of oppression and delusion of a people which is just what is needed for awareness to develop and increase. A slight blemish I found was that the author seemed a tad petulant and somewhat passive aggressive during his stay, which led to a diminishing respect of the customs and people he had to abide. Don’t get me wrong, I think I would’ve found it hard not to react to such a regime and way of life but the way he did it (throwing paper aeroplanes out of windows, running from guides, offering his translator 1984 to read) seemed a little immature. That being said, the fact he took 1984 with him for a reread on the trip was a nice touch. Let’s all hope that books like this ring increasing awareness to what is happening in this cloaked crucible and paves the way for the help of the hundreds of thousands of North Koreans who are impoverished, oppressed or brainwashed to eventually secure a better future which unites them with their global family.

I guess I just don't like Guy Delisle that much. He has a certain superiority, an incredulousness that people could be taken in by the propaganda, which gets almost sneering at times.

Hey Guy, maybe the easily traceable guide didn't want to denigrate the regime because he didn't want it to be written up in a comic book? Maybe people just didn't trust you enough to say "y'know, you're right - this is horseshit." Maybe not - maybe people do believe the propaganda they are fed, but I didn't feel much attempt on Delisle's part to empathise with the North Koreans he met. It was all a bit self-centred.

Additionally, the editing in the book was a bit off - "ball" instead of "bullet"; "anti-American Propaganda" when only "Pro-American propaganda" made sense (maybe that last was a mistake in the original). There were one or two others, and I wasn't trying to find them. I expect a bit better from D Q.

I may just be grumpy today, but there's something about this book I find annoying. The art was serviceable, some of it very good and effective. I'd say it's pretty good comics, craft-wise, but still I just didn't enjoy it very much. ( )

Interesting, but nothing really compelling. ( )

Un eccellente reportage su una realtà che per la maggior parte dei suoi aspetti a un occidentale sembra davvero irreale. Scopro Delisle, che ha uno stile di narrazione semplice ed efficace (si vede che è anche animatore) e un umorismo pungente (penso non tanto al riferimento, un po' scontato, a 1984 di Orwell, quanto piuttosto a chicche come la citazione di The prisoner a p. 43).

A light read, interesting. I have not been able to detect the racism that other comments say, maybe a bit of condescendence. Anywasy, I'd recommend it to somebody who wants to learn a little about north korea, as there is so little information. ( )

I appreciated seeing such a personal view of a country I’ll never visit. I love comics that can expand my boundaries this way.
 
Delisle's evocative pencil drawings are suited to depicting a colourless, twilight world in which the state is all, with his rudimentary characters inhabiting vast and much more detailed architectural environments. Less well drawn are the inner lives of Pyongyang's citizens.

North Korea is a country suffering in more ways than the author makes note of and I’m sure any reader could surmise this from his account, but rather than mine the heart of this suffering, Delisle achieves the literary equivalent of hiding a paraplegic’s wheelchair.
adicionada por stephmo | editarComics Bulletin, Michael Aronson (Mar 29, 2006)
 
So while Pyongyang reads like cartoonist Craig Thompson’s breezy and introspective European travel diary, Carnet de Voyage, its content dictates that it be filed beside political artist Joe Sacco’s hard-hitting, from-the-trenches graphic novels about Sarajevo and Palestine – minus the first-hand accounts of violence, drama, and abject poverty. Because while a city can’t cry for help, maybe the odd cartoonist can act as a proxy.
 
This is a graphic novel so well crafted that the text begins to work as secondary illustration: propaganda begins to flow freely from each cell, like the canned music and broadcast exhortations that trail into the 15th floor hotel rooms; a small frame exchange between Delisle and his handlers perfectly sets up a full-page illustration of the dialogue’s own irony.
