It starts with a breathtaking graphic of two inseparable lovers Kari & Ruth, but unfortunately it takes a bad turn & they decide to jump off their buildings. While Ruth gets saved by a safety net of her building, Kari is saved by a sewer. After that Ruth flies to abroad to start a new life & Kari just continues her old life in Mumbai AKA Smog city. She continues her day job which is writing advertisements sequels for several products. She lives with 2 other women Delna & Vicky at their 2BHK called Crystal Palace with 2 permanent houseguests Orgo & Zap. Other characters in the book include Lazarus, her partner at work & Angel, a brand manager & cancer patient. Kari automatically gets drawn towards her & befriends her. But even with all the people around her, she is still alone & her suicidal thoughts haven’t left her. So, will she end her life after all or give herself a second chance?
I’ve read a graphic novel before & regretted to pick it up hence when I decided to read Kari I was really hoping that it won’t disappoint me & I’m glad it didn’t. First of all the graphics are so well etched that they sure do leave a mark on your mind, they’re dark & are totally in sync with the narration. Even the protagonist Kari seems to be a real person because of all the real life like picturization. The story have been written in a way so that it covers many aspects of Kari’s life hence there’s a lack of continuity but totally comprehensible. The story deals with several topics like lesbian relationship, breakup, cancer, mental trauma, etc. This surely is a one in a million kind of book & I really hope we get to read a sequel.
Wish some of our Indian authors snapped out of their oft repeating mode of forcing 'intellectual' looking stuff out of common storylines in their books, especially graphic novels.
