    Ambiguous and haunting short tale of a search for a missing person. Stark yellow/white/black images continue the mysterious theme.

In this journey, she gets to fight with her inner demons and finally confronts her inner fears. An existential thriller, this book was a quick but an interesting read for me. I loved the detailing in each graphic for every picture had so much elements and it actually played like a movie. I would say give this one a shot. You won't regret it. And for all those who are in a reading slump, this novel with its interesting graphics might help you come out of it. My Rating - 4/5

    This novella set somewhere near the mountains in South Asia is revelatory. Most South Asian writing embraces the noise and chaos of its cities - this novella has a dark stillness, evoked in both the spare writing and the beautiful art. As the character travels to the mountains, the rising dread is palpable - yet this is leavened with details of ordinary life, and the warmth of family conversation. Deeply moving.

    A short, haunting graphic novel about a lady in search of her lost husband. While you can finish it in one sitting, this book leaves you thinking about it long after you've finished reading it. The artwork is stunning, the words are woven into the art so beautifully. This is the kind of book that says a lot in just few words.
