    Description

    Join the Facebook Group here! In the hotel at the end of the world it's business as usual, as Pema dishes up rice and pork curry to travelers who stop by for a drink and refuge from the rains. Everyone there has a story to tell, and at times they end up revealing more than they want to. On their journey to China, Kona and Kuja, bound together by fate, stumble upon the trail of the Floating Island, Promised Land of plenty. Pema's story is about lost love, while her husband speaks of homesick Japanese soldiers in Manipur and the Naga hills during World War II. The Prophet takes us back to the quest for the Floating Island, leading us to the little girl's story as she sets out to fetch water and chances upon something quite unexpected—

    A disappointment

    Yes, it is heavily borrowed from 'The Sandman', though it has none of the brilliance of Neil Gaiman's tour de force.

    I found this a poor tale; the artistry is a testament to its creator's lack of talent.

    I felt obliged to write this review considering its exorbitant price.

    If you feel an insatiable need to purchase this book, please conduct an elementary scan of it at the nearest fiction retailer, before wasting the money you could save up to buy a real graphic novel.

    P.s. As always, than...

    Writing 8/10, Artwork 5/10

    This book will take you along on a journey to some richly imagined, familiar yet strange lands. The narrative locus is a hotel at the end of the world, where there is all that a lonely traveller might seek -- shelter from the storm, the promise of warm food, and the company of fellow wayfarers.

    Interesting

    It's quite a fascinating book the premise of which heavily borrowed from "The Sandman" - World's end inn which is also an inn whose patrons take shelter from rain and exchange stories. The setting is quite similar but the stories are not.

    The stories are heart warming, eye wetting and sometimes mind numbing. They are stories of daily life, wanna-have-life and not to mention don't-want-to-have-life variety.

    The art work is pretty basic but tastefully done.

    The book made an interesting read...
