Trailer ☆ Town Boy PDF by ☆ LAT (Mohammad Nor Khalid) Malaysian Teenager Mat Makes A Life Changing Move From The Quiet Kampung Where He Was Born To Ipoh, The Rapidly Industrializing Nearby Town Living Far From His Rural Roots At A Boarding School, He Discovers Bustling Streets, Modern Music, Heady Literature, Budding Romance, And Through It All His Growing Passion For ArtThe Companion Novel To The Critically Acclaimed Kampung Boy , Town Boy Offers Of Lat S Delicious Storytelling And Enchanting Pen And Ink Artwork At Once Exotic And Familiar, His Cartoon World Builds A Bridge For Readers Into Another World, Another Culture, And Another Time We discovered LAT Mohammad Nor Khalid s Kampung Boy last year and were intrigued by the author s style, his sense of humor, and his ability to convey subtle aspects of his culture and religion for those of us who are quite unfamiliar with life in Malaysia during the 1960s.
I m not sure why it took me so long to get around to reading this sequel, but it really shows how a few years of age, maturity, and exposure to a town vs rural lifestyle can change a person s perspectives and shape his experiences His ability to attend school in a town setting Ipoh exposed Mat to a wide variety of music, people, media, clothing, and food, not to mention the bad influences that tend to attract young men of all generations Overall, it s a fun, fast read and I enjoyed learningabout the life of this young man I hope to seeof this author s work in our local library.
Town Boy is one of the many graphic memoirs, where the author describes visually and textually an era, or place, or both Lat shows a good mastery of the medium and produces a good memoir, but for me it s just not refined enough, and the time and place are just not that appealing If you re wandering, I ve been to Singapore and Malaysia, and was interested in a deeper historical and social account The story and characters are simple a kampong family moves to a newly built area of a city in Malaysia The protagonist of the story is Lat Mat , who is an artistically inclined kid of twelve at the start of the story Lat the grown up explores the Malaysian small city culture through the eyes of kid Lat there are numerous episodes in school, etc We see also the Chinese side of the society, as Lat befriends a relatively rich boy As the book progresses, Lat Lat, otherwise known as Kampung Boy, returns in this second volume of his life story, Town Boy, detailing the second half of his adolescence in the small town of Ipoh in Malaysia It s an autobiographical tale and Lat masterfully shares with us his tale of growing up in the 1960 s in Malyasia relating not a tale of someone famous or that has great life changes happen to them, but that of the everyday person A person that we can all relate to, because we can connect with him We can see our own friends and classmates in the people that Lat describes and remember our own slightly awkward adolescence And even though Lat illustrates how things are different in his world, there is much that is similar And while it s illustrations are seemingly simple, they are compelling and help us know the characters better I highly recommend this book and it s prequel Kampung Boy to anyone and ev Kisah masa remaja si penulis di kota Ipoh, ilustrasi yang menarik dan dengan bahasa Malaysia dengan logat yang unik hahaha satu hal yg aku suka dari Malaysia adalah bahasa Melayu mereka The graphic novel, Town Boy by Mohammad Nor Khalid, is based in Malaysia, and surrounds the life of a young Malaysian boy, Mat Mat recently moved away from from the quiet streets of Ipoh to the quick paced streets of the town where he attends a boarding school Through his love for music, he meets Frankie, his best friend Although there really isn t a specific plot to the book, he maintains his friendship with Frankie That is the only identical feature throughout the whole book that remains Mohammed Nor Khalid illustrates some exceptional work of art Adding life to every character shown, you could almost feel like you were there on those streets Frankie and Mat talk about what they want to be when there older, which leads to the ending Frankie ends up moving to London to pursue his dream, ending with the goodbye between the tw A simple story of a boy coming into his own while perusing his passions for the arts Friendship Romance and the story of growing up Simple times and simpler days.
I am continuing to love this series I love the way the characters move in their environments of streets, coffee shops, into cyclos and onto buses The main character now lives in a town a big change for his poor family and it chronicles his days in school and the meeting of his best friend, Frankie There are some great sequences in this book, really fantastic little snippets of life that are so familiar for all that they occurred a lifetime ago to someone else on the other side of the world There is a jump midway through the book from childhood to teen but that is bridged perfectly by copying the familiar sequence of meeting Frankie for school as boys, and updating it to picking Frankie up for school as now too cool teens This contrast is perfect as it mixes the familiar and ne Last year I went gaga over a Malaysian comic from the seventies Doesn t a sentence that like sound cool Like I m some kind of obscure comic enthusiast with a penchant for the best overseas comics of decades past The truth is far less sexy, I m afraid First Second brought to our American shores the comic book Kampung Boy, a title that original appeared in Malaysia long ago Initially the format didn t intrigue me, but after a test run I found that I liked Lat the one namer author and his work quite a lot The story was an unpretentious memoir of growing up in a small kampung village and the typical mischievous boy adventures that occurred in one kid s life At the end of the book our hero leaves his home to go to Ipoh to pursue his studies This year the sequel, Town Boy is out and continues Lat s story With all the humor and I read this book at Nu Central MPH while waiting for my sis to show up again That means I read this book for free HAHAHAHAThis book was not your typical LOL, but it does make you sit back and go back to the old days Although I was not born in the 70 s but i can appreciate this comic because it really shows how Malaysian were back then Again I like to emphasise that I love how Lat always include other race in Malaysia They may night be the main character but they are always there I ve always loved his work and omg the Malaysian essences is captured expertly in all his arts This book ended on a bitter sweet note How your friend who you spend half your childhood slowly goes away as he she closes a chapter
