Gone Case is a graphic novel written by Dave Chua and illustrated by Koh Hong Teng. The story is actually from Dave Chua's earlier novel, which won the Singapore Literature Prize Commendation Award in 1996. Now it has been adapted into a graphic novel.The story is based in Singapore, looks at the life of 12-year-old Yong growing up in a Housing Development Board (HDB) estate - just like most other Singaporeans. He has to juggle between preparing for exams, taking care of his younger brother and [...]
Gone Case is a great graphic novel. It lumbers through the story of twelve year old Yong, a boy who's forced to take on new responsibilities that he doesn't quite understand yet. Reading through it, I felt a little bit lost and disconnected from what was going on, which I'm willing to put down to Chua and Koh's skill at placing me in Yong's shoes.The story feels a bit disjointed, a bit slow. I loved the characterisation, and I thought some of Yong's dream sequences were great at revealing the mo [...]
A poignant tale of a 12 year old boy who never quite feels as young as he's supposed to be, perhaps because of the tribulations he goes through. Nothing really much happens, which probably means that its actually a rather faithful portrayal of what real life is, since life isn't a highlight reel the likes of which one readily finds on Instagram/Facebook.
An average read. Not worth my time to finish the book. Sorry!
Just a quick 20-30 minutes read to take my mind off studying for RAT 36 tomorrow. I read the novel (even though I remember basically nothing), but I feel that this is kind of told differently. Interesting artwork, with clean lines and realistic renditions of many Singapore landmarks.
The Chinese translation of the graphic novel. It's translated well, and reading it in Chinese lends it a slightly different flavour. It works just as well as the original version, and perhaps will reach out to another segment of the public.
Very poignant coming-of-age tale, with beautifully detailed art that powerfully conveys each pause, nuance and symbol. My only grievance is that the faces of some characters aren't too well-differentiated, so some confusion arose.
Excellent portrayal of modern life in Singapore with clear and moving illustrations of life in a HDB estate. I wish this was in colour.
Nice quick read that let me peek into the life of Singaporeans beyond all the touristy glamour. I picked it up in a cat cafe in Chinatown and it added a little something to my time there.
