Descriptions du produit

Nao Brown is 'Hafu': half Japanese, half English. She suffers with OCD, but not the hand-washing, overly tidy type that people joke about. Nao suffers from violent morbid obsessions and a racing, unruly mind. She works part time in a 'designer' vinyl toy shop, whilst struggling to get her own design and illustration career off the ground. She's looking for love - the perfect love. But in meeting the man of her dreams, she realises that - dreams can be quite weird. Nao meditates in an attempt to quieten her mind and open her heart and it's through this that she comes to realise that things aren't so black and white after all. In fact, they're much more...brown.

A beautifully illustrated glimpse into a frantic mind 15 octobre 2012
Par Eagles Fan - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
First of all: gorgeous artwork. If you're the type of graphic novel reader who appreciates a more sketchy style over precisely inked linework, you'll love the art and the watercolor washes used to color the story.

Glyn Dillon's story of a young woman's trials with OCD and discovering a life she is comfortable with is impressive. What makes it so impressive, and what I wished he'd done more throughout the book, is how certain points aren't spoon-fed to the reader. Anybody who purchases this book already knows the main character, Nao, has OCD. It's how she struggles to manage it in her life and what can trigger her irrational thoughts that draw us in.

And the silences between the conversations of the characters and how they're illustrated say more than any dialogue could possibly say, especially those between Nao and her friend/employer, Steve.

While I wish the ending hadn't been so sentimental and "all wrapped up," I've got to give credit to Dillon for making an adult graphic novel that reads like one. You'll remember this story after you're done reading it.

Read It Nao 6 février 2013

The Nao of Brown by Glyn Dillon features beautiful artwork, and would be worth taking a look at for that reason alone. But it has an unusual, engaging story that had me going back through the book when I was done.

Nao Brown is half-Japanese, very cute, and an artist. She works in a shop selling Japanese toys and such. She's obsessed with Japanese Ichi comic book characters, and becomes interested in a bearded, heavyset washing-machine repairman who looks like one of them. Her problem: she is plagued by an obsessive compulsive disorder that unexpectedly will overwhelm her with thoughts of injuring and killing other people. The images and thoughts can be simply awful, like stabbing a pregnant woman in the belly. Her struggles to cope with this disorder and conceal it are riveting. Also fascinating is her use of Buddhist meditation and Buddhist artwork to help her learn to not be overwhelmed.

There is a good bit of humor and gentle wisdom in the book as well. The teachers and students at the Buddhist center, for example, can be overly sincere and unaware of their absurdity, for all their compassionate intentions.

Interspersed is the story of a half-man, half-tree Ichi character who joins the Japanese army. The graphic images are weird, ornate and contrasting in style to the realism of the rest of the book. But they also have a quiet serenity to them which understandably appeals to Nao, and the reader.

In Nao's story we learn about her toy store boss, her roommate, her family, and more about the repairman. He turns out to have a wisdom, and a secret, of his own. There is a short text piece toward the end from his diary that provides a different angle to the story. If you are looking for something different in your reading, this certainly provides it. It also provides a rare and thoughtful Buddhist perspective on its events.

Very Introspective!! 8 mars 2013
Par Joe Diano - Publié sur Amazon.com

A brilliant use of the graphic novel medium. Beautifully illustrated and painted, the character of Nao and her relationships with others was easily understood. I enjoyed it depth and understanding of mental illness and the real day feelings invoked by Nao. My only problem which quickly resolved after reading it to completion was the intervening story between the chapters. I didnt quite understand its implicatons till the end and so was annoyed at having to stop and read it when all i wanted to do was read more about Nao and her life. Apart from that its a fascinating read and I would recommend it.
Absolutely charming from beginning to end. 30 novembre 2014

I purchased this book at a local library book sale.

At a recent library book sale I was volunteering at, I stumbled across The Nao of Brown. All it took was a glance at the cover art and a flip through its vibrantly illustrated pages, and I knew I had to give it a warm home. And so no one else could give it a warm home, I hid it behind some technical manuals until my shift was over. It wasn’t my proudest moment but I stand by my decision.

Nao has returned to London after losing a job and a relationship. She seeks a new start, but fears that everything will continue in the same downward trajectory she has come to expect. She is reunited with some old friends and makes some new ones as she tries to find purpose and meaning in her life and in life in general. The story is interrupted every now and then by a parallel story in the form of a Japanese parable that provides an interesting break in the art style and provides an extra layer of narrative for the main story to be plucked out of its pages.

The Nao of Brown is a graphic novel that is different from most I’ve seen. There’s no action or gratuitous sex, no monsters or cool gadgets, no superheroes or villains. Usually the only time these elements aren’t present in a graphic novel, the main themes are comedic or cutesy in nature. In fact, up until now, I haven’t paid this medium as much attention as I possibly should have because of it. Thank God every now and then something comes along to challenge my notions.

In The Nao of Brown, Glyn Dillon has created a very character-centered work that focuses on a girl named Nao. Nao is a half Japanese, half English girl, who feels as if she doesn’t fully belong to either culture, or the human race in general, at times. Ever since she was a child, Nao has been plagued by a peculiar form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder that causes her to obsessively fixate on violent scenarios in her mind. For example, in one scene she is on an airplane and she thinks about pulling the hatch and depressurizing the cabin. The thought disturbs her so much that she parks herself in the airplane lavatory for the remainder of the flight, trying to force the scenario out of her mind. Her innocence and her shy demeanor are juxtaposed with this horrifying condition, and it only serves to build level upon level of depth to both her character and the story in general.

I was drawn into this story from the beginning. The beautifully gentle themes and subtle but uproariously funny comedy roped me in. As funny as it is at times, this is no comedy. There are some incredibly real themes and situations that are sometimes very dark, always true to form. The story is the perfect snapshot of life for the twenty something year old. From the eternal struggle for identity and truth, to alcoholism and mental illness, romance, inadequacy and growth, Dillon has run the gamut of the human condition in this work.

I thoroughly enjoyed The Nao of Brown from the first frame to the last. I would recommend it for anyone interested in graphic art or anyone with an interest in the human condition. I think anyone in their twenties or thirties would enjoy it from a more personal perspective, but the struggles, truths, and the amazing themes in this story can be useful and enjoyable for anyone at any age (not children, due to some mature themes and swearing). At the very least, there are some truly funny bits and the art is incredibly detailed and emotive.

Absolutely charming from beginning to end.

A superb, truly exceptional book for both the poignant story and the beautiful art. Artistically Dillon is on par with Frederic Boilet - they both use photorealistic style. But Dillon goes beyond realism by splicing fantastic dream sequences and an allegorical sci-fi fable within this modern romance. I concede the points of reviewers who felt that a) Nao was a bit artificially constructed to be a too lovable hentai, b) with only mild OCD, avoiding an uglier, more painful portrait, and c) a somewhat sudden, perhaps unsatisfying, ending. However, I found that any such plot weaknesses were more than made up for by the incredible drawing, overall depth, feeling and interwoven themes (mystical Buddhism, Japanese anime, and more) running throughout the story.
