Review:

Dan Clowes described the story in Ghost World as the examination of "the lives of two recent high school graduates from the advantaged perch of a constant and (mostly) undetectable eavesdropper, with the shaky detachment of a scientist who has grown fond of the prize microbes in his petri dish". From this perch comes a revelation about adolescence that is both subtle and coolly beautiful. Critics have pointed out Clowes's cynicism and vicious social commentary, but if you concentrate on those aspects, you'll miss the exquisite whole that Clowes has captured. Each chapter ends with a melancholia that builds towards the amazing, detached, ghost-like ending. -- Poppy Andress

Review:

The appeal of Daniel Clowes' breakout graphic novel lies not from what could be predictable plotting, but from its engaging character work. It is the relationship between outsider teens Enid and Rebecca that holds readers in its hilariously cynical sway from panel one.

Dan Clowes is a master storyteller and artist--there's poetry in every panel. --Dave Eggers

In Ghost World, Daniel Clowes doesn't romanticize the teenage experience or show teenage girls as sweet and idealistic. His portrayal is raw, cynical, and honest, often hitting the nail on the head.... This graphic novel is very funny, but it's also very sad, and sometimes it's both at the same time.... Though it's only 80 pages long, this graphic novel still manages to leave a deep impression. --Danica Davidson

I think Ghost World is astonishing... I think it's one of the best books about adolescence written. --Michael Chabon"

Dan Clowes is a master storyteller and artist there's poetry in every panel. --Dave Eggers"

If there was ever a comic book story meant to be examined by non-comics fans, it's this, a classic in any medium. "

[Clowes] spells out the realities of teen angst as powerfully and authentically as Salinger did in The Catcher in the Rye for an eariler generation. "

I really identified with the girls in Ghost World. They made me feel like I wasn't so alone. --Lisa Simpson"

In Ghost World, Daniel Clowes doesn t romanticize the teenage experience or show teenage girls as sweet and idealistic. His portrayal is raw, cynical, and honest, often hitting the nail on the head.... This graphic novel is very funny, but it's also very sad, and sometimes it s both at the same time.... Though it's only 80 pages long, this graphic novel still manages to leave a deep impression. --Danica Davidson"

Ghost Worldgets better every time I read it, and I ve read it hundreds of times. It still frightens me a little how well Daniel Clowes managed to nail the teen-girl brain. --Alexandra Molotkow"

Book Description Fantagraphics, United States, 2001. Paperback. Condition: New. 7th ed.. Language: English . Brand New Book.
