5.0 de 5 estrelas Poignant Autobiographical Graphica Novel 26 de julho de 2015
Por William Capodanno - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I don't typically read graphic novels, not because I dislike the genre or haven't read some brilliant graphic novels in the past. My predisposition is toward novels and history/non-fiction. In the case of "Fun Home", I listen to the podcast "Books on the Nightstand" and this was one of their recommendations. I've had great experiences when reading one of their recommendations and hadn't read a graphic novel in several years so decided to change things up.

"Fun Home" is an entertaining and poignant autobiography of Bechdel's childhood. Her family owns a funeral home in a small town so her father works as an English teacher, her mother an actress. They buy a charming fixer-upper which her father lovingly devotes much of his spare time to restoring to grandeur often enlisting Alison for assistance. Much more, this is Alison's story of growing up as she starts to realize she is a lesbian, her coming out as well as learning that her father was a "closeted" gay man. Her father dies after being hit by a car and Alison wonders whether this was an accident or suicide, unable to fully express himself and his true sexual orientation. It is also about the unspoken bonds between Alison and her dad after she tells her parents she is gay --- she can never quite come to ask him about his sexual orientation and he never directly broaches the subject with her before his death. The illustrations only serve to enhance the development of the Alison and her family and deepen the emotional engagement with their struggles. There are moments of sadness, but more moments of joy and discovery to be found in this exceptional autobiography.

4.0 de 5 estrelas Fun Home 9 de dezembro de 2015
Por Rachel McElhany - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I first heard of Fun Home when I read an article about how it was on the summer reading list for incoming freshman at Duke University and a group of students were boycotting it. They said it was pornographic and that its homosexual themes violated their Christian moral beliefs. Learning a group is trying to ban or boycott a book is one sure way to get me interested in reading it.

Fun Home is Alison Bechdel’s graphic memoir of her life growing up. Fun home is what she and her brothers called the family-owned funeral home her dad ran. This was the first adult graphic novel I’ve read. (And by adult, I mean for grown-ups, NOT porn.) I was really surprised how drawn into it I was. I didn’t realize that characters could be so defined in the graphic format. I really felt for Alison, having to grow up with such distant, detached parents. Her pain and confusion over her father’s death jumps off the page.

The only way that Alison and her father relate to one another is through a mutual love of books and reading. Fun Home is peppered with literary references and comparisons that went completely over my head. Once again I’m pulling the “I was an accounting major so I didn’t read any classics in college card”. If you have, you may enjoy the references and Alison’s book will have even more meaning for you. However, I still liked this book a lot anyway.

There were a few nude drawings in this book, when Alison figures out she’s a lesbian and starts having relationships with women. However, Alison is a talented illustrator and they looked like works of art in my opinion. If the scenes had been described using words, they would have been much more graphic. I am applying Justice Potter Stewart’s “I know it when I see it” test of obscenity and this ain’t it.

As far as the homosexual themes in the book goes, yes this is a memoir written by a lesbian about her relationship with her gay dad. It’s a gay book. But isn’t one of the great things about reading learning about people who are different than you? Reading helps one develop a deep sense of empathy. Maybe you might even learn that people you once thought were evil are not. Maybe that’s a scary thought for some people and they would rather live in their insulated bubbles. I’m glad I’m not one of those people. However, I should thank the students at Duke for alerting me to this book’s existence.

Put Fun Home on your list of challenged books that must be read!
5.0 de 5 estrelas Probing the past through words and pictures 2 de março de 2017
Por D.R. Bennett - Publicada na Amazon.com

I've never read a graphic novel before, and initially I had some reservations. It was confusing to me to have words and pictures, instead of letting my own imagination turn words into my own pictures. But, after I got into it, I appreciated the author's genius. It's a brilliant memoir and well worth the many awards that have been given to it. Also, I understand a theatre production based on the book. And a sequel. Bechdel in seven chapters goes at her childhood, her teenage years, her coming out as a lesbian, and her early adult in relation to her parents, particularly her father, as she saw them and understood them at different ages in her life. Like peeling an onion, layer by layer, she sees and sees again as she matures. She and her father share many aspects, a fact that is most available through the cartoon pictures. But she doesn't understand that until she is older. A great read and a book that provokes our own memories and discussion about the LGBT history and lifestyle.

3.0 de 5 estrelas Good introductory tale for young readers 8 de setembro de 2015
Por Gerald S. Argetsinger - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I've read many gay coming out/coming of age stories and I really don't see why this one got all the hoop-la. I guess because it's a graphic novel and therefore appeals to "the new young adult reader." But the illustrations seem more an excuse to avoid any real development. Another plus is that it could be a nice introduction into gay growing up stories for teens that are going through what the author did: discovering her sexuality, but also discovering the literature that is available in both libraries and book stores, not to mention the internet. It's good to know that one is not alone and to discover that the experiences of others "like me" are truly helpful in one's development.

5.0 de 5 estrelas Very Compelling 18 de fevereiro de 2014
Por Brandon J. Smith - Publicada na Amazon.com
Formato: Capa comum Compra verificada
I got this as a gift for my wife, but I couldn't help but check it out when she was done. I read it one day. I would read a chunk of it, put it down to do something else, but the next thing I knew I'd have it in my hands again. I'd first heard of Alison Bechdel because of the "Bechdel Test," in which (to briefly define) you would take note of a television show or movie in which two women talk to each other about something other than a man. It's an intriguing notion that has stuck with me ever since I first heard it and means even more now that I have a daughter, which has heightened my distaste for sexism.

This story is of course autobiographical, focusing on Bechdel and her father. I won't say more about the plot, just in case you want to avoid any hint of a spoiler.

I rate this five stars because the story was very compelling and interesting, but in truth I'd knock it down half a star if I could. There were times when Bechdel chooses to use a fancy word when a simple one would suffice, which isn't to say someone shouldn't have a good vocabulary, only that sometimes it pulled me out of the story. If the narration feels like a distraction, I feel like it's an unsuccessful sentence or paragraph. I also felt that the story fell apart a bit toward the end, relying too heavily on James Joyce's Ulysses and losing some of the sharp focus that the early and middle chapters had. However, these are small criticisms within a much larger picture, one that deserves plenty of praise from readers and critics. The only book I could compare it with is Maus, by Art Spiegelman. Both are tremendous, using the form of the graphic novel to support the tale and present it in the most effective manner. Even if you wouldn't normally think to read a book in this format, I highly recommend this.
