be leaving soon, which causes both of them pain.The relationship between Chunky and Dandel is not the only precious one in this book There is also Solomon, the lonesome, elementary tongued bachelor who nurses a bird named Merle back to health after his wing feathers are mysteriously chewed off And Livonia and Ruth, a pair of conjoined twins who could not be separated without dying The greatest parts of this book are the parts that are missing We do not know why Chunky and Dandel love each other so much it is enough for us to know that they do Merle the bird suffers from some unknown ailment that compels him to tear out his own feathers and his constant, unintelligible doot doot says nothing explicitly, but speaks volumes implicitly.This graphic novella is a vignette study in heartbreak, fate, loneliness, and relationships Chunky Rice is undoubtedly meant to leave Dandel, yet he was also by all appearances made to be with Dandel Still, he must leave In this world, relationships are what happens when two people s roads merge together They depart, and maybe they will one day meet again Hm Where to begin let s start with the good.Solomon s dialect This is the only thing giving the book any sense of place As no place is ever mentioned except the fictional Kahootney Islands, it was nice to have an anchor, even if it was only a gulf coast Louisiana accent that did it Solomon s

to have an anchor, even if it was only a gulf coast Louisiana accent that did it Solomon s dialect also made him one of theendearing characters, in my opinion Also, the book is well drawn While I find some of the transitions and juxtapositions gimmicky, it was overall good in that respect Speaking of drawing, all the characters are split into two groups, visually the grotesques and the not grotesques Those in the second group basically amount to Chunky, his androgynously drawn and named friend Dandel, the bird Merle, and the long dead dog Stomper Every other character i.e every human character is a grotesque Solomon the uneducated bumpkin with the Jesus Saves shirt certainly is a stereotype as well as a grotesque, but his kindness and careful nature despite his damaging past make for the most shining moments in the book and the only ones that are actually even close to poignant, though many try Women are represented in interesting ways It is noteworthy that the only women whose faces we see are the Siamese twins, who are decidedly grotesque, the old senile wig wearing landlady Estelle, and the face in a picture of a dead wife for whom Chuck is still taking lamps The only other woman character is the cook We never see her face and we know that though she obviously doesn t care about Chuck in any kind of real way but sleeps with him anyway The relationship between Chunky and Dandel is never given any depth except that they both say how deeply important their relationship is Dandel writes letters all the time, but we don t really know why While that isn t strictly necessary, as we are entering the story at the point of departure, a littlehistory would be nice Chunky is a perplexing character Though he is the point around which the whole book revolves, he is, as the gamers say, a Non Player Character the only choice he makes in the entire book is the choice to leave, and once that choice has been made one time he never chooses anything else He doesn t reconsider leaving based on the fact of his present happiness, he doesn t question the fee to travel on boat, or that Chuck throws his records into the water, or the fact that though he has paid he also has to work, or ANYTHING else Everything happens to him, he causes nothing to happen And he is practically mute In 125 pages Chunky says literally 164 words avg 1.312 wds pg of which six are sounds whee, sigh, heh, um, etc and four are statements of his own name He is, essentially, nothan a McGuffin.Everything Dandel says after Chunky leaves is hipster rambling nice trike and scarf One thing that, upon further reflection, played well on this character was the androgyny It takes the focus of the relationship away from questions of amorous love and places it within the realm of all loves Are they lovers Are they friends It shows that friendship can be as strong and as important other kinds of love HOWEVER, that same ambiguity in the relationship also highlights the perceived sexual aloofness of hipsters On the whole, I didn t understand this book unless it s existentialthen I get it And I wouldn t recommend it A book full of tenderness, of loving and saying goodbye.

sense of it ending People ask Chunky why he s leaving, and he always just says I don t know well, maybe if we knew why he had to leave, we d have felt sympathy for him having to leave his best friend, but we don t, so I just wondered whether he really needed to go at all I couldn t feel sorry for him if it didn t seem necessary for him to go.Another thing if you re going to pu This felt under

beginning before we ve had time to get to know the characters I m not objecting to putting something like this in a story, and I can see how it becomes relevant, but it would have been better if we d got to know Solomon, and then found out about this horrible incident as a child which makes us understand him better, rather than it just being Hi, I be Solomon, I being drowned some puppies once That s the other thing about Solomon, by the way, his dialect doesn t make an awful lot of sense, and seems to have just been made up on the fly rather than having any kind of logic to it.I understand that this was apparently written about Craig Thompson s friends who he d had to leave behind when moving cities It feels like something that s written for a particular person or group of people, who will understand what parts of it mean It assumed interest, like it didn t have to prompt me to feel sad for the characters Graphic Novel of the DecadeI read this book with a music in my mind Those musical notes were melancholic and were not from an earphone bud Rather, it was from the plucked strings of my aching heart that vibrated with each stroke of the strip drawn by Craig Thompson.Good Bye, Chunky

all Friendship Graphic Novel of the DecadeI read this book with a music in my mind Those musical notes were melancholic and were not from an earphone bud Rather, it was from the plucked strings of my aching heart that vibrated with each stroke of the strip drawn by Craig Thompson.Good Bye, Chunky Rice, was written in the year 1999 as the first work of Craig Thompson which won him the Harvey Award for Best New Talent I read the last page and sat for a long time contemplating the transience of all Friendship bonds that develop overtime, only to be torn apart due to circumstances.Regardless to say, this is a book that will make you cry your heart out.It atleast did with mine Shattered it into a hundred different pieces.Goodbye Chunky Rice is a story that you may come across in a bookstore and zoom through the pages just because you heard its name somewhere We might forgive you for thinking that its a children s cartoon picture book with a story.The fact is, it is not Not even an adult s book It is a work of mammoth proportions.It s the story of a turtle christened Chunky Rice, a little turtle and Dandel, a deer mouse Solomon the human faced roommate of Chunky is overburdened with childhood memories of being lost in the sea of emotions The bad emotions Guilt and longing make up for much of his mindset of young years.Then there s a sailor, or you may call him a boat captain, Charles who has his on set of life issues.In the beginning as we move to the first page, Chunky s companionship with Dandel is shown to us The friendship is strongly and beautifully presented to the reader in black and white sketches.Then, came a line.By Chunky I have to go to the sea, Dandel That s where I truly belong.Chunky, as many of us do, go to seek out greener pastures of opportunities like jobs and exploring the unknown There s nothing wrong in that The painful part is leaving an ocean of memories behind Parents, friends and companions all are left behind.Chunky wants to take Dandel along but as often is the case again, as with humans it is not practical A deer mouse has nothing to do in the world of water It has to stay ashore That s where it belongs.But the heart belongs to a little green piece of life who is moving away.Dandel, keeps you warm and your eyes wet by the brave facade it shows to Chunky in the days leading up to his departure Acts cool, staying positive and showcasing that it is eager for the friend to go through the decision The truth being is that Dandel implodes from within.This just might snap something in your heart s core.Dandel throws letter after letter in the sea in the hope that its thoughts could reach Chunky some day But try as you might, emotions do not bottle up They pour as rain on the searing earth.With the human roommate we encounter an incident that could not be formulated into words, sentences, or in language I ever learnt He adored playing with the puppies of his pet dog But they were consuming much of the resources of Solomon s parents and they were annoyed with it.Those puppies are taken to the beach along with their moms A stick is thrown far enough for her to catch And the puppies are killed by suffocating in the water.And this is just one of the many waves that crash into the lives of the people in the novel The ideas and events are drawn with pristine black and white colored strokes that open a world full of feelings for you.With immaculately drawn characters, marvelously planned anecdotes and cute little pictures this is an animal centered story that you should read as a human being.Verdict Soul Rendering 5 Stars I have mixed feelings about Craig Thompson s debut graphic novel, winner of the 2000 Harvey Award for Best New Talent On the one hand, the plot is very slim tiny turtle boy with huge bug eyes hardly says a word but inexplicably decides to leave his hometown, only to be treated as a punching bag by the people he encounters Nothing to write home about On the other hand, it is already obvious that Craig Thompson is a very gifted cartoonist who knows how to visually engage the reader In the wor I have mixed feelings about Craig Thompson s debut graphic novel, winner of the

reader In the words of Alan Moore, he has a real feel for the musicality of the comic strip form This work sings and dances, and you could do a lot worse than to sing and dance along with it I m not much of a dancer myself, but I still found the reading experience pleasant enough on an aesthetic level
