Comments Paris

  • Julie Ehlers

    This was a really fast read--so fast that I read almost the entire thing on my half-hour train commute this morning, and was forced to stop at a bookstore after work so I'd have something to read on the trip home! Even for a graphic novel, this book was pretty light on the text. But the story, about an art student and a debutante who find love in 1950s Paris, was pretty delightful, and the illustrations were really interesting. It definitely did not have the emotional impact of a lot of other gr [...]

    Since I'm a big fan of Andi Watson's work, it was inevitable that his most recent collection Paris would land on my list of best books of 2007. I didn't get a chance to review it properly until now, but it should come as no surprise that Watson once again does not disappoint, with an incredibly charming and atmospheric book featuring some of the most fantastically detailed black and white art I've seen in ages. If you are at all familiar with the recent works of Andi Watson, like the "opposites [...]

    Maybe a 3.5 of 5?This review, with pictures, and others posted over at my blog.From the back of the book: Juliet is a penniless American art student in early 1950s Paris, painting portraits of socialites and sharing a flat with a revolutionary bohemian to make ends meet. She’s not expecting romance, but this is Paris after all, where both inspiration and love abound. When she’s commissioned to paint Deborah’s portrait, Juliet thinks the young British woman is just another rich girl. But Ju [...]


  • Eve

    I love Andi Watson's work. I discovered SLOW NEWS DAY first, then loved LITTLE STAR as a new parent. It's been somewhat disappointing beyond that, with the BREAKFAST AT NOON, LOVE FIGHTS and GLISTER series—and yet I still can't resist themRIS is another such episode. It looks great and starts off appealingly, but the characters don't really develop to the point where we really care for them or understand why they should really care for each other. As with GLISTER, there's a twist, but it seems [...]


  • Don

    A pleasing, if unsurprising, love story about two women in 1950s Paris: Deborah, a British girl from the upper class, and Juliet, the American art student commissioned to paint her. Simon Gane's blocky art takes a bit to get used to, but is oddly perfect for the the European surroundings; unfortunately, this means the later scenes in rural America aren't as differentiated as one might wish. This short story is probably the right length for what it is, yet we never feel for the main characters qu [...]


  • Melissa

    I didn't find this book to be very thrilling or new. It kind of rehashed the themes of love and longing, in a way that didn't seem very passionate at all. The characters were a bit stereotypical and weren't developed enough for me to have feelings for them.The theme of homosexuality is brave and praiseworthy, but the characters and plot were just so 2-D that I really couldn't embrace anything about this book.


  • Jamie

    Full disclosure, Andi and I are pals and I have a blurb on the back of this book. I think that blurb speaks for itself, so here it is:""When reading Paris, one's head swims as if we ourselves were Andi Watson's love-drunk heroine. His scripts make our knees weak, but Simon Gane's art catches us as we crumble, completing the seduction with casual grace."


  • Jennifer de Guzman

    I won't give star ratings to books that I worked on as an editor, but I will review them!Paris is a beautiful book about love and art and learning how to use one's passion. Andi Watson's story makes what some would see as an unconventional romance seem like the most natural thing in the world, and Simon Gane's art is simply to die for.


  • Mely

    The utterly charming tale of two girls falling in love in, and with, Paris. It was apparently inspired by Audrey Hepburn movies and you can tell. The painter and the debutante are both lovely and lively, and Simon Gale's intricately patterned page spreads are gorgeous.


  • Holly Lee (Bellas Novella)

    This graphic novel was largely superficial. I found the relationships to be unbelieveable, and underdevloped. That being said, I did like the artwork, and the story idea was interesting. Unfortunately, I think it was unispired and fell flat. I would say pass on this book.


  • the gift

    to be young in paris is a moveable feast: beautiful, lively, art and storytelling


  • Peter C

    Andi Watson, Paris, New York, Lesbians. What more does a book need? Charming.


  • Dana

    This was a random find in a record shop in San Jose. Very happy accident.A beautiful, romantic read. The artwork is highly detailed and nuanced and the style suits the setting really well.


  • sweet pea

    busy drawings. trite plot. basically Annie on My Mind with tales of Paris thrown in, without the charm of either.
