Es for a uick read though Delisle s minimalist art doesn t help liven things up ither though it s perhaps an appropriate match for the bland material I understand why Delisle structured the book this way to give insight into and convey the tedium and frustration of Christophe s Sanibel Virgin experience to the reader but it doesn t make the book any interesting to read It does heighten thexcitement of the finale though as after hundreds of pages where barely anything happens a lot of thrilling stuff starts happening at once Still the reader does have to Way of the Shaman endure a lot of dreariness to make it to the worthwhile payoff Hostage is a decent comic with a gripping beginning andnd but a very mediocre middle which is unfortunately the longest part Nonetheless it s a remarkable story that I m glad I read and I suspect that if you re a Guy Delisle fan like me you ll pick this up regardless Though I would ve preferred a heavily Gallowglass edited down version I can still appreciate Delisle s artistic vision for the comicven if that makes Hostage my least favourite of his books Good book first graphic novel I read since I was 13 It was refreshing to read a book in which I don t have to put too much of an ffort The story deals with a NGO worker that was kidnapped by CHechnyan forces and kept there for 3 months the graphics help the story move along and the color pallet of the comic strips do feel in tone with the story Guy Delisle always does a great job with understatement and can pass beautiful and strong messages with minimalist drawing and text I loved his books on Shenzen Pyongyang Burma and Jerusalem where he was working as a cartoonist and they were autobiographical accounts This one was uite different as it dealt with the kidnapping and captivity of a humanitarian activist Christ Delisle is known for his autobiographical comics and cartoons chronicles of his xperiences in different countries he visits on his wife s professional trips and recently amusing cartoon collections of his own bad parenting Hostage is by far his most ambitious work to date based on an oral history account he audiotaped of the kidnapping of Christophe Andr who was held captive for over 3 months in 1997 in Chechnya The book is 432 pages in which very little happens though as you might have guessed he does survive the ordeal though I won t reveal how as one might The Public-Private Partnership Handbook expect Christophe an humanitarian activist is taken in the middle of the night within the first days of his new job a This was my night time read for a couple of weeks and boy was it bleak As you can see from the picture it was a hefty book It didn t send me off into slumberland with pleasant dreams Christophe is kidnapped from the NGO he s working for in 1997 and held captive in Chechnya While his captors seek a ransom from officials in Christophe s native Paris hendures harsh conditions and tries to keep from losing his sanity The What Next After School ? ending of this story because he does live to tell it was so inspiring I raced through it all tonight Highly recommend. N starts to set in Working in a pared down style with muted color washes Delisle conveys the psychologicalffects of solitary confinement compelling us to ask ourselves some difficult uestions regarding the repercussions of negotiating with kidnappers and what it really means to be free Thoughtful intense and moving Hostage takes a profound look at what drives our will to survive in the darkest of moments.
