Chroniques de Jérusalem (2008)
language
English
4.14 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: I wish I was awesome and read this in French, but I just read the English translation, which I can't find on goodreads. Great graphic memoir about the author's year in Jerusalem. It offers a kind of outsider's primer on the Israel-Palestine conflict, and I liked that it was a non...
A User's Guide to Neglectful Parenting (2013)

English

review 1: Known for his much more serious travel comics, Delisle redirects his talents towards comedy in a fast-paced book about the various ways he's messed with and messed up his kids. Whether he's trying to convince his son that the Easter Bunny exists or brutally critiquing his daughte...

review 1: I’ve enjoyed Guy Delisle’s gag strip books, but hadn’t yet dipped my toe into his travelogues, so thought I’d start with Burma Chronicles as my Grandpa served out there during WW2 as a radar operator. His stories, some of which were shocking, some of which were touching, painted ...

review 1: If I could, I'd give this 1.5 stars. Not very gripping; the book jumps around from one scene to the next without elaborating; some scenes feel like the most interesting parts have been cut out. Found all the stuff about religion and Israeli-Palestinian relations interesting, but ...
Cronache di Gerusalemme (2008)

English

review 1: Mi opinión en dos idiomas: árabe y españolمثير للاهتمام، يحكي قصة حياته في فلسطين، وتتعرف من خلاله على قبح الاحتلال الاسرائيلي.. وكيف يقوم الصهاينه بنفس الاعمال التي كان هتلر قد ارتكبها بحق الابرياء!ناقص في الكتاب أن يتعمق أكثر في التاريخ الفلسطيني الحديث وأن يجعل القارئ يتعرف اك...
Le guide du mauvais père (2013)
language
English
3.54 of 5 Votes: 2
review 1: I found this immensely funny and even as one without kids (nor the desire for any) could imagine me using some of these responses in light of some of the questions and circumstances that arise when dealing with young children (and the joy in telling them all those little white li...
Diario del cattivo papà (2013)
language
English
3.54 of 5 Votes: 1
review 1: A really enjoyable read. DeLisle, as always, handles the humor well with his wonderful attention to pacing and simple but expressive drawings. The pricing of this volume is disgraceful though. A small black and white paperback on very cheap pulpy paper (yellowing before my ver...
Guía del  mal padre (2013)
language
English

review 1: A charming, awkward, very honest-feeling portrayal of parenthood. Not being one myself (or having any interest in becoming one), it was the first vignette that sold me on the whole thing, and it was a delightful time. There's one story, of the father hard-critiquing his young dau...
Aufzeichnungen Aus Birma (2007)
language
English
3.96 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Although the book is best described as a graphic novel, this description is not entirely accurate. Unlike a novel where there is a plot and a streamlined narrative (Persepolis, Kabul Disco, etc), this book is more aptly described as a collection of experiences gathered by the aut...
Burma Chronicles. Guy Delisle (2007)

review 1: Burma Chronicles s-a nascut datorita unei vizite de un an in Burma/Myanmar, vizita pe care Guy Delisle a facut-o alaturi de nevasta si fiul sau.Acest volum m-a dezamagit pentru ca mi-a lasat impresia ca este fortat si jurnalul sau grafic, de data aceasta, nu a mai lasat impresia ...
