شكسبير في "الليلة الثانية عشرة" كانت قراءة ممتعة للغاية ومثيرة للاهتمام. كان لكل شخص شخصياته الفريدة الخاصة ، مما ساهم في عفوية وكوميديا الحوار. كانت المواقف مسلية ، حيث تراكمت حتى النهاية المناخية. لقد استمتعت بهذا الكتاب لأنني أحب الكوميديا ، وكان ذلك بمثابة ارتياح من قراءة مسرحيات شكسبير الجادة. في سنتي الأولى من المدرسة الثانوية ، صورت الشخصية ، سيباستيان ، في عرض مسرحي. الآن ، بعد قراءة هذا الكتاب ، أنا أكثر دراية بالشخصية ، متمنياً لو استطعت قراءة الكتاب في وقت سابق.

Meet Tony Chu. He’s a cibopath, a psychic who can “read” a person or object by tasting it. Or, should I say, ingesting it, because it seems he has to chew (Drink!) and even swallow. As a police detective, his unusual talent comes in handy for solving crimes, particularly murders, as long as he’s willing to gnaw on the remains. (And despite his sour-faced reluctance, he is.) But otherwise, it’s a serious pain – the only thing he can eat without having traumatic flashes of gory death is beets. After solving a grisly serial killer case, he’s recruited by the Special Crimes Division of the FDA, which has special authority now that chicken and other bird meat has been outlawed after a devastating outbreak of bird flu (that may or may not be a governmental cover-up). His job is to crack down on the illegal smuggling and preparation of prohibited food (mostly chicken, which is somehow addictive food crack now), but his newest case finds him caught up in the murder of a NY health inspector and a prominent senator. Style & Substance: This book has a lot of both. The best graphic novels pair the story and the artwork so well that you can’t imagine them existing without each other. Guillory’s artwork is idiosyncratic, charming, and hip, with a lot of interesting angles and wonky perspectives. (I particularly admired many of the scenes highlighting the physical size differences between tiny Tony and his ginormous partner.) And it’s vividly gross, too. It totally suits Layman’s almost absurd but fascinating comic noir premise and peculiar characters. There is something awesome on every page, whether it is a super slick action scene or a smart bit of dialogue. I’m not gonna lie, I loved this one. Tony is a bit of a stick-in-the-mud. Aside from his weird ability, he’s just a decent cop trying to play by the rules, a little lonely (he falls for a beautiful saboscrivner, who can write about food so descriptively you can actually taste it while reading) and long- suffering and out of his element. He’s got a tough job to do but he’s gonna do it no matter what, simply because he wants to catch the bad guys. Tony has to eat a lot of deliciously disgusting things to solve this crime, all portrayed in loving detail. My favorite? (view spoiler) Recommended for: Fans of quirky art styles. Fans of zombies and cannibalism and police procedurals. People who think beets don’t get enough attention.
