Product description

Review

‘A remarkable and important graphic novel … It is testimony to the skill of this debut work – penned by a 25-year-old – that, while Munnu seems uncritical of these characters, we see their ugly side’ Independent

‘A dense, intense and arresting read that will tear your heart apart and have you sweating with vicarious fear. Those who already relished Marjane Satrapi's PERSEPOLIS, Belle Yang's FORGET SORROW or Kunwu & Otie's A CHINESE LIFE are going to love this. I'm thinking particularly PERSEPOLIS, for this too centres on the strength, reliance and resourcefulness of a family in the wake of oppression … There's so much about life in Kashmir which I didn't understand. Since the terrifying nuclear brinksmanship in 1999 which I remember so well, it's rather fallen from our news cycles, hasn't it? This great graphic novel, I am convinced, will bring it back to the forefront of our attention’ Page 45

My first graphic novel experience and it was simply brethtaking .. The raw emotions and anger hidden behind the imagery and jokes is what makes this a must read .. An absolute eye opener and classic in Kashmir literature .. Some of the visuals are brilliant .. Heard its banned in open stores in India and can see why .. This one is a hard hitting take on Kashmir about the everyday life and gives a Kashmiris perception about the whole crisis .. Well done Malik Sajad aka Munnu

Munnu is the book that was much needed to enlighten people about the atrocities in Kashmir. You have to understand that this book is from the perspective of a particular man and in no way contains the whole story and unbiased research material about the incidents it covers. But as a story, it is one positive step towards introducing, understanding and acknowledging the condition of a state that is adjacent to multiple countries.
One could not have asked for a better way to be put in the shoes of a native caught and growing up in conflict.
Opinions will always differ about what is right and what is wrong. So go ahead, delve into Munnu's world, and make your own conclusions.

Fabulous, brilliant and dark. Malik Sajad brings his own life experiences to this Graphic Novel and gives us a hard-hitting, sometimes funny, sometimes horrifying account of life in Kashmir. Absolute must-read.

Exceptionally brilliant work and a very touching tale of Kashmir - erstwhile paradise amidst clouds now in a deplorable state of affairs! The Indian 'Maus' can we say. Saw this graphic novel listed in 'Amazon Rising Stars' and thanks to Amazon for it's great 'lists' & recommendations, encountered such a marvellous real life based work. It's just a few month after ordering & reading "Our Moon Has Blood Clots: A Memoir of a Lost Home in Kashmir" by Rahul Pandita. Would recommend both books as a good read to know first person account of what's happening in the crownlands of what's called India today. Amongst some of the best Graphic novels is Maus, Palenstine & Munnu in that order & the flow sounds very similar though geographically separated and will fill any empathetic heart with profound sadness to horror at the plight of the suffering...

Must read!

Awesome piece of work from Kashmir's own Joe Sacco. I say this because I see very less difference between his and Sacco's work on my shelf ( Palestine and The Fixer), although Sacco has made big sketches to convey scenarios of his story.

The graphic novel has a plot that narrates everything from the point of the narrator who belongs from a new generation of Kashmiri youth, trying to live a respectable life in a conflict zone. The struggle is deeply personified in his work, which contains raw emotions that can appease Kashmiri readers.

I loved reading it.

BIG HATS OFF for such a fantastic / dense storytelling. BIG HATS OFF for such cross cuts in the script! Hingul epitomises any and every faceless face today 'IN' & around (Maus or no Maus). This is a compliment from an 'outsider' who is geographically/nationally(!!) an "INSIDER". The 'INSIDE' is known as India.

The graphic novel is an autobiography of the writer that starts in his early years (as early as when he says was 8 years old) up to his youth. And through that experience tells a lot about a lot of people he met - different perspectives and intensions. Also maybe some confusions in them too. It shows Kashmir in very detail as well. The politics surrounding it, the people living their and the victims of, well, everything going on. The whole book is shown as the author's journey and is presented before you, leaving you to built what you think. Though the author has in the end given a brief description that tells the audience to just leave it all, nothing's going to happen, it is just this way, go with the flow, have your own happy ending. But just afterwards one last incident reverts it back. Should we just walk away or any other means are necessary or what? the book initially is like a wave - fun-sad-fun-sad-fun-sad-fun-fun-fun-sad-sad-sad. But it is definitely not as boring as this description sounds. And later it calms down.

Very engaging and gripping.. The graphics are hard hitting. Although didn't completely agree with the views on kashmiri Pandita as depicted in the book, the efforts put in the writing and caricatures are appreciated.
