Reading Singapore: The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chye

Going back over some older ground…because I never read a book about Singapore. Which is ridiculous.

The wait was worth it! On the recommendation of very smart book blogger, Bibloglobal, I picked up The Art of Charlie Chan Hock Chey by Sonny Liew and I’m so very glad I did.

Dazzling. Brilliant. A complete vision executed flawlessly.
I don’t know – I COULD GO ON AND ON.

I’m blown away. It’s that good. And I won’t discuss it further, because I might ruin it for you. Just one more thing: don’t read any other reviews before you dig into this graphic novel. Wait until after and all shall be illuminated…trust me!

    I’m glad you enjoyed it! It certainly is different from anything else I’ve read. I’m having a very hard time refraining from saying anything about the ending!
