    HUH.The problem with this book is that it went right over my head Actually, that could be a problem with me, in all fairness, but I think a story should strive to ensure that its point, message should be somewhat conveyed to readers and simpleton me alike Frankly, if I hadn t actually know what it s about, having read the blurb and a detailed review by someone on an intellectual plain way above mine, the story would have been a girl who lost something, ties to find it, decides the thing and h HUH.The problem with this book is that it went right over my head Actually, that could be a problem with me, in all fairness, but I think a story should strive to ensure that its point, message should be somewhat conveyed to readers and simpleton me alike Frankly, if I hadn t actually know what it s about, having read the blurb and a detailed review by someone on an intellectual plain way above mine, the story would have been a girl who lost something, ties to find it, decides the thing and herself are better off without each other in any case despite what society says However within this limitation, what I applaud is that Muradov was still able to say something, even if that was marred by jumbling scenes and dialogue, plus art that wasn t always clear, which wept compounding so that by the time the conclusion swung around, I could barely discern what was going even in the physical sense Yet when I think about what this lost thing was, innocence as a tangible thing I can t help wondering how what the experience would have been, had I been able to grasp it.As much as I love the idea ofIn a Sense Lost and Found, I can t help thinking that the execution was in a sense faltering and dissonant.Recommended, with reservations Review copy provided by Nobrow Press.

    This book has magic in it It s unique and based on my skimming of reviews for this as of now rated 3.32 book, it s also confusing to a lot of people It has a range of unique things, though The art is really accomplished and fascinating It reminds me of the art of Luke Pearson, who writes a rave blurb for it but it s darker, with lots of browns and black. it s got a little Matisse in it. and I dunno, David B, dark fantasy, deliberately disorienting It s for pages on end wordless, which This book has magic in it It s unique and based on my skimming of reviews for this as of now rated 3.32 book, it s also confusing to a lot of people It has a range of unique things, though The art is really accomplished and fascinating It reminds me of the art of Luke Pearson, who writes a rave blurb for it but it s darker, with lots of browns and black. it s got a little Matisse in it. and I dunno, David B, dark fantasy, deliberately disorienting It s for pages on end wordless, which I like, but when people do speak, it is surreally, with sometimes made up words and clever malaprops and surrealistic silliness The darkness of the art speaks to the underlying seriousness of the kind of allegory it shares, of a woman who has awakened one morning from troubled dreams to discover her innocence seen as a tangible object has gone missing And everyone seems to know the innocence is literally gone So she has lost it and must find it again in a sense, as the somewhat clumsy title suggests. why not just call it Lost and Found and let us wrangle over the extent it is or isn t lost and found I read it three times today, and I tried to get the tone it was going for and couldn t quite do it, I m afraid I just think it is really unique, one of a kind I think it is fantasy, but maybe evenso alternative comics, sort of bizarre

    I found this immensely interesting, strangely disturbing and oddly gratifing as Muradov takes us on a journey with our unnamed female lead as she awakens to find that she has lost something, a something that is never identified but is none the less important especially as far as everyone else is concerned She spends much of the book trying to find this something while questioning whether she really needs it, finally coming to her own conclusion rather than blindly accepting what she is told by I found this immensely interesting, strangely disturbing and oddly gratifing as Muradov takes us on a journey with our unnamed female lead as she awakens to find that she has lost something, a something that is never identified but is none the less important especially as far as everyone else is concerned She spends much of the book trying to find this something while questioning whether she really needs it, finally coming to her own conclusion rather than blindly accepting what she is told by everyone else I think this is a story that you take your own message from to a certain extent as Muradov leaves much for the reader to decide the meaning of, which for me adds to what his overall message is, basically make your own choices and decisions and do what is right for you

    This is one of those graphic novels that s difficult to describe A woman wakes up one day to discover that her innocence has gone missing As she heads out to search for it, she is stared at, mocked, and chastised for leaving the house without it Embarrassed, she seeks refuge in a bookstore where she meets a curious old man Her quest to recover her innocence continues and she discovers that there s something of a black market for innocence But is it true innocence Can one even regain their This is one of those graphic novels that s difficult to describe A woman wakes up one day to discover that her innocence has gone missing As she heads out to search for it, she is stared at, mocked, and chastised for leaving the house without it Embarrassed, she seeks refuge in a bookstore where she meets a curious old man Her quest to recover her innocence continues and she discovers that there s something of a black market for innocence But is it true innocence Can one even regain their innocence once it s been lost The world of In a Sense Lost and Found is quite surreal The artwork, mostly in shades of brown, is tinged with hints of Picasso The language is whimsical, to say the least There s some amusing and occasionally confusing wordplay at work to add to the off kilter nature of the story In the end, I felt like I was missing something and it wasn t my innocence this is a very strange and somewhat opaque graphic novel Still, I m glad I read it although I m not sure to whom, exactly, I would feel compelled to recommend it

    I loved this book It had an interesting premise, two lovely characters and a few that got only mentioned once or twice , quirky art style and great, engaging narrative Some of the reviewers here have found the book pretty difficult to understand, but I think that the message and the story are actually quite straightforward It isn t really a book you should overanalyze although there is great nuances underneath the simple premise Just enjoy it as it is, and follow our main character as she I loved this book It had an interesting premise, two lovely characters and a few that got only mentioned once or twice , quirky art style and great, engaging narrative Some of the reviewers here have found the book pretty difficult to understand, but I think that the message and the story are actually quite straightforward It isn t really a book you should overanalyze although there is great nuances underneath the simple premise Just enjoy it as it is, and follow our main character as she goes after her stolen innocence This book is witty, delightful and surprisingly warm

    I am at a total loss here This book has some sort of meaning that is beyond me A young woman wakes up one morning and can t find her innocence She has written that as the first sentence of her story Never again is the lost item ever mentioned by name However everyone knows what she has lost They can tell by looking at her She is told to stay in her room till she finds it Leaving by her window, she is haunted by the stares For some reason her skirt gives her away She hides out in a book I am at a total loss here This book has some sort of meaning that is beyond me A young woman wakes up one morning and can t find her innocence She has written that as the first sentence of her story Never again is the lost item ever mentioned by name However everyone knows what she has lost They can tell by looking at her She is told to stay in her room till she finds it Leaving by her window, she is haunted by the stares For some reason her skirt gives her away She hides out in a bookstore, enters a strange underground place, perhaps an apothecary s, finds where her missing thing has been sold sent given to and tries to get it back This is a haunting world The art is dark, has some very strange Picasso moments, Seussian buildings, very surreal, metaphysical I have absolutely no idea what is really happening here, what is going on or what it means but the story, combined with the art, made me feel very glad the woman made the choice she did in the end Strange

    I m not entirely sure what to make of the narrative, but I need to go back through this to catchof the moving parts It begins and ends with references to a dream, and this is perhaps the way to take in this work as if you re trying to make sense of a dream The art is one of the highlights here, and it reminds me a little of Seth.

    Lovely poetic read Why people find this confusing reading is beyond me, it s an artistic fairy tale like story with a a pretty simple message be like you wish to be despite what other people think and you ll be happier At least that s what I got from it It sabout enjoying the art work than following a plot or understanding some elaborate message.

    The story is interesting, the thing that broke my heart about this book is that you can barely see the illustrations I blame the quality of the paper, but honestly, the colour is just so DARK that it makes impossible for you to distinguish what you re seeing It just looks like a blurred shadow at times Which is a shame, because from the little I could see, it looks amazing and very creative.
