The Sound of the World By Heart by Giacomo Bevilacqua
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The Sound of the World by Heart has an interesting premise--can you live in one of the world's largest cities and not speak a word to anyone? The main character in this graphic novel takes on that task while exploring the New York and taking photographs.
I love the art in this book, even if the story seems a bit lacking. The art reminds me of many classic comics, which draws in the the reader. The story seemed to lose itself. It's a good attempt at showing there are other ways humans communicate, and that the act of communicating with each other is important for survival, but the story took a few turns off this road and didn't seem to bring it around to a cohesive end.
