Ao assumir a funcao de contador da historia, Nael enxerga tanto a casa quanto a cidade de Manaus sem idealizacoes, assim o leitor compreende o mal fadado projeto de modernidade, que nao atingiu toda a populacao e, que beneficiou apenas uma minoria, a qual sempre usufruiu do resultado do trabalho dos explorados.

Dois Irmaos de Milton Haoum don’t usually love books with a scope this wide, and none of the characters are particularly likable, but this is really admirable art and may be seen as in the canon of great works of this time of hxtoum explosion of graphic novels, the golden age. Two Brothers did not take me through as personal of a journey as Daytripper did, but it remains a powerful example of how creators can truly engage the reader and push comics well beyond the panels on each page.


Two Brothers has everything a good novel should have, backed up by some sumptuous black and white illustrations that capture a historical Manaus in an unforgettable way. Man, this family is terrible to each other.

Definitely a nice addition to the graphic novel genre. El trabajo de luz y sombra, de grandes planos o irmaoos detalles de los autores le aporta una fuerza a la historia profunda, llena de matices, que te atrapa y quieres leerla hasta el final.

I almost want to read the novel as I feel a little lost and disoriented after finishing it. Hatoum’s father was an immigrant from Lebanon who met a Brazilian of Lebanese origin. Unsettling, a bit confusing, and engrossing.

This one is far darker, almost an opposite in immediate effects, with more anger and violence, jealousy, deception, loss, but it is still passionate about love and sex and family and loss. Retrieved April 6, The story, a convoluted tale of a family of few likeable characters, was at times hard to follow. This also feels like a novel of place. This is a brilliant piece of storytelling and art rolled into one. May 24, 1 Comment.

Thanks for telling us about the problem. Want to Read Currently Reading Read. The story is intense, but felt so real. The ending is fittingly strong and vague – Ba and Moon’s final illustrations in the shell of the old house and gardens, the space where one of the twins stood, creates a haunting final impression and had me htoum back through the book to some of the most memorable scenes.

The story-telling and art and just general scope of this book are beautiful and captivating and the reason it deserves as many stars as it does. Mari rated it it was amazing May 18, The plot’s really too complicated for me to relate here, but if you want to know more, there’re a lot of reviews to look at to help you with that.
