    1. This was the first mature graphic novel I read besides the usual kid stuff we read as children Trust me I was mind blown by the kind of illustration and intensity this novel carries The story is so gripping that keeping it aside for even a minute would take you on a guilt trip and you d be dying to wrap up whatever that you are doing and indulge into this amazing piece again It s amusing to witness the depiction of Kari s thought process which is so complex, yet so simple It creates this fascina [...]

    2. The writing and structure of Kari almost make it feel like graphic poetry than a graphic novel I was totally drawn into it and moved by it it felt like a dark, beautiful dream.

    3. I didn t realize just how sick I was of reading terrible, terrible, graphic novels by mopey white dudes about their boring love life until I read Kari.Thank you, Amruta Patil, for expanding the palette.

    4. I find the artwork beautiful The narrative s opening section, The Double Suicide, pays homage to Kahlo s Two Fridas and concludes with an allusion to Wyeth s Christina s World Patil s drawings range from stark lines and soft charcoal fills to the drawing on photographs There are a handful of moving sentences Fear of heights is a fear of a desire to jump, without wing or buoyant sail 112 And whatever love laws have to be broken, the first few seconds suffice 69 The Charon ferryman metaphor is wov [...]

    5. Kari was unsatisfactory in a way because just when I started to appreciate the story and fall in love with it, it got over The artwork is beautiful and unapologetically raw When I was reading the graphic novel, I had no idea where it was heading and that threw me off a bit It s almost poetic so it was difficult to get the exact meaning for me but I liked thinking about my own take on the story I have to say, this is definitely the first time I have read about a lesbian protagonist written by an [...]

    7. This is one of the most unique graphic novels that I have read in some time Time and space are distorted through the minute subtleties of panels gutters and splash pages Dialogues overlap panel boundaries and speech bubbles are also used scarcely The story moves on a very metaphorical level The artwork is simple and sometimes even photographic in effect, to the extent of using photographic elements along with sketchwork Various chapters are phases in Kari s life, episodes to be precise And it is [...]

    11. Great example of a really good idea of how to use a new medium Graphic novels to show a new slice of life in modern Indian but without any story underneath it First the positives undoubtedly paints a great picture of life in modern India the description of the smells in a Mumbai local sexy armpit, sweaty armpit are humorous yet accurate and can really transport you The art work is great, the pictures very relatable to how many of us lived when we first started working sharing rooms and boyfriend [...]

    12. i wanted to read this graphic novel for a long time, but i never expected what i would experience in this great graphic novel an indian, i might have told you that i don t like many indian writers writing in english but, amruta patil s kari makes a different impact first of all, she grasped the post independent, post colonial india and its faux modernity quite accurately with satirical hues and interesting characters in this graphic novel though sometimes it s scary and disturbing, it is one of [...]

    14. It s a beautifully illustrated book Had attended a talk by her where she spoke about how she illustrates and her thought process behind the work It reflected in the work She has also borrowed the idea of fear of heights from Sexing the Cherry, which is also shown in one of her panels where Kari is reading the book Overall, a great read, interesting metaphors, lovely illustrations.

    15. Well, I was quite hyped about this book by a lot of fellow bibliophiles, and I must say, I didn t quite see what the hype was all about I loved the last three or so parts, but otherwise, it was, unsatisfactory I will revisit this book soon I should probably try a different approach.

    16. More of an illustrated novel than a traditional comic The art and prose go well together Overall a good look at the various relationships in Kari s life.

    18. Kari, like Amruta Patil s other graphic novels, is beautiful but ultimately too obsessed with itself, its cryptic and moody characterization, and its profound observations on life I think, or less, I m tired of characters who are nihilistic for the sake of it, and go through life constantly having an intellectual dialogue with themselves which ultimately feels or less like a way of exerting superiority over other, normal people with their normal lives I m tired of characters who are borderline [...]

    19. first graphic novel experience a shrug i enjoyed certain parts, like the way she illustrates anxiety attacks or the death of a friend, but everything else isolation alienation, androgyny, lgbtq topics was all done v tritely and it dragged on quite a bit, also no consistency in art references like the sporadically inserted references to famous paintings christina s world by andrew wyeth, the two fridas by frida kahlo, life and death by gustav klimt were the ones i noticed felt like they were put [...]

    20. Kari is my first graphic novel.I thought graphic novels are for children but Kari shown me to have an option of graphic novels as.Unwillingly I picked it up at crossword, read first two pages and couldn t resist to buy.I don t understand colors but still the fantastic story intrigued me.Kari herself as a character is gritty,whimsy and almost idle.She is searching an umbilical to her girlfriend in a cancer sufferer old lady Kari seems a memoir of an author about the city where she was first time [...]

    21. 4.75 stars Every time I read this book, there s this whole new wave of feels In a nutshell, Kari is about a queer woman living in a Mumbai esque city The art work is stunning, and since this was my third reread, I could pause and take in all the lovely thing she does if nothing else, her tribute to Frida Kahlo in the first few pages should be your reason alone to pick this beautiful book up with the setting I know Kari gets a lot of flak for its uneven writing style the tone and mood changes so [...]

    22. The fox was beautiful, and white as snow The Princess walked o er hills and dales to find him East o the sun she walked, and west o the moon The further the Princess walked, the further the fox ran always on the horizon Kari is so vulnerable that unless she clads herself with what one would called indifference, the peace of mind that she needs would be farfetched She needs to belong somewhere to someone and then there s Ruth A story that begins with making you believe that it will take you behin [...]

    23. It took me a little while to understand what was happening in this graphic novel because of the lyrical mythical way the graphic novel starts I couldn t figure out at first whether it was a fantasy or a memoir, but once I got into it, the narrative evens out somewhat and becomes stronger I liked the book and I enjoyed the interesting, complex female relationships in it, particularly the relationship between Kari and a terminally ill friend, but on a technical level I thought the narrative was a [...]

    24. Amrutha Patil with her vivid sketches makes the story not just come alive but jump out at you It was the story however, which left me a bit conflicted The angst of people moving from small towns to big cities strikes a cord The choking of the city is shown beautifully by drawing parallel with the choking of the sewer systems It was just that the character of Ruth made very little sense for me It was a constant niggle in the storyline I wish the writer had written the sequel but am not sure when [...]

    25. Out of all the Graphic Novels I have read which are unfortunately not many , this is the most memorable one It s set in Mumbai and it s dark, beautiful and melancholy It s a about a girl called Kari who is navigating her way in the big city and life The illustrations flow perfectly with the story and the writing style, and enhance the story rather than just being beautiful pictures For all it s seriousness, this book leaves a smile on your face after you close the last page Highly recommended Th [...]

    26. A very nicely laid out instance of typically angsty Indian English writing New things it talks about gender dysphoria and general misanthropy instead of cultural alienation.The art is nice to look at and extremely engaging.The characters are extremely archetypal and schematic.But the book is always entertaining When it said to be continued at the end, I didn t mind reading another part.

    27. Just like any other wonderful graphic narratives out there too thought provoking, too gritty, too mesmerizing Such a fast faced and engrossing read It s like you could feel the disgust and dilemma and drudgery that envelope and blanket 21 year old Kari through the pagesMore to come, someday sooner or later.I need to mull about it , and read often The language is the language of nightmares, the language of slumber, the tongue of heartbreak, of down under.

    28. I have never been a fan of graphic novels Until now This book was delicious in every way possible The plot, the illustrations, everything The kind of apathy, wry humour, inane observations that Kari makes, make her even real Since I m from the city where this book is based in, the descriptions and the images made me love it even .

    29. Dark intense postmodernist take on graphic novel The brooding content stimulating illustration is absolutely worthy to any mature reader s attention The city, sewer, alienation , life death rarely get so original and uncompromising voice from female protagonist Like to get hold of Amruta Patil s Adiparva asap Recommended.

    30. Very well illustrated Kari is a very Indian bildungsroman but has its share of misanthropy, sexual dysphoria and is gripping at times Filled with allusions from the boatman of Styx to the protagonist donning a PVC suite a la Carrie Ann Moss from the Matrix, its a good book in the dark and angsty coming of age sub sub genre.
