I did not like reading this that's the only reason I couldn't give it 5 stars If the rating was strictly based on amount of enjoyment this would get out of me BUT it's in terms of uality specifically presentation and importanceThe Snake Catchers Brothers' Dream is my favorite because he did such an excellent job telling it and it's one of the timeless stories that I can rememberI must give credit to the guest contributors two different names who I assume were the writers the art is the same throughout are listed on the title pages of three of best of the thirteen short stories within the 275 pages of agonizing stories that focus on the DEEP issues that have been viciously tearing the tenuous fabric Korean society for over a century with disturbing regularityI highly recommend conscious reading of the afterword for those who aren't familiar with the Korean experience andor lack technical knowledge of graphic novel presentation techniue It's VERY academic and allows appreciation that may have been missed without justification of the uality through desperate pandering get it like the similar dissection of my recently reviewed turd entitled Cola Madnes Don't make my usual mistake you should read it through first THEN spend however long it takes you to fully understand it during a second readInternationally speakingThis book suffers far beyond the usual disadvantages when read in translation Those who don't have insight into the day to day Korean past and present that has struggled through the many events that have and haven't been related in newspapers won't have NEARLY the same experience as one who does BUT the take away which comes to you naturally through his harshly objective presentation transcends the stories with the spectrum of heavy emotions that make the reader additionally analyze society and humanity as a whole

From Korea comes a collection of incisive observant short stories by a leading artist Reading these thirteen exceptional stories is an experience similar to appreciating. The moralizing tone and exaggerated character designs make the debt to Will Eisner clear but as with much of Eisner's work the storytelling tends to be simplistic and obvious making it hard to take the work seriously

Buja's DiaryElouently presenting a universal human experience O also brings a delightful and exotic insight into Korean society Whereas Manwa Korean comics can be much than we expec. I highly recommend this book It is a graphic novel about life in Korea It has nudity so i would suggest this book only if the reader is mature The graphic novel is broken into different stories but teaches a morals or a message Chapter 1 The Little Alley Watcher In chapter 1 it is about a little girl who waits for her parents to return from farming Nari the little girl and her parents are the only one in the town because everyone else left he village to Seoul Nari is lonely and only has the comfort of her loyal dog that tries to comfort her when she is lonely aww dogs man's best friend Chapter 2 Fire Ki Su a boy that comes from a poor family His mother is very pretty and his dad is lazy One day Ki Su is dared to get a apple from the Orchard While taking an apple from the Orchard he sees his mother with the Orchard owner lying under the tree intercourse The Orchard owner is providing support to Ki Su's family Ki Su is traumatized and is angry at what he sees Things where never the same Until one day a game festival is held at the same time a fire is started Ki Su hears his fathers laughter in the flames Ki Su joins in and throws a fire stick at the Orchards hut and watches it burn I guess that is one way to release stress The mother is very strong because she is willing to do anything to support her family She is very brave and sadly this still happens in today's society people have to make sacrifices to achieve things Chapter 3 There is a man and he is working at a office and has a dream He dreams that the city has been in a disaster and people and being captured by a gang of hunters Either being captured for food or slavery He wakes up and realizes it was a dream and heads to the lobby of the office and realizes that everyone is a slave at the office They all have messy clothe and are dirty Makes me think of work it enslaves all of us There is 13 chapters but i dont want to bore you My favorite chapter is Chapter 6 The Snake Catcher Brothers' Dream It is my favorite because their is 2 brothers who catch snakes for a living and sell them to the snake medicine shop They put all of the savings into a black can and hope to buy their own shop one day Until one day another snake catcher comes and is trying to steal their territory for catching snakes The brothers are watching him carefully A couple of days later the new snake catcher finds a white snake and people say it is worth a lot of money and he becomes rich and famous While the brothers are angry and jealous of his fortune They wondered when will their day come They decide to be like the other snake catcher and do nothing and depend on their luck to find a white snake They use up all of their money from the black can on alcohol and girls Until they ran out of money They yell at the black can and smashes the can to the floor They have no money This is my favorite chapter because the black can was their white snake They could have used the money for better things and could of had a better life They were blind to see that the black can was their ticket out of poverty Also it was pretty fun when the brothers broke the can because they blamed their failur
