The images (which are wonderfully shaded) carry the story along effortlessly. It's always wonderful when you can read through unadorned images and laugh or go, "A[...]" The nuances of the story (the types of music Robot listens to, the speeds at which the post office can deliver your mail, etc) are really cute.
There's also a random character that appears now and then. In my head, I called him Frustrate-O Man. Nothing positive happens to this dude.
I will say a couple things... For this price, I think the book should have been hardcover. Also, it was great to have a music specifically made to accompany the story, but I didn't think there was enough of it. I would read a certain section, listening to the appropriate song (which, make no doubt, enhanced the mood of the story), but by the time the next song came on, I wasn't at the 'right' section yet. To be honest, I felt like I was under more pressure to have the Ultimate Nufonia Must Fall Experience. My advice would be to read the book through first, and then again with the music.
This book stands solidly on it's own and is a very good story. I'm happy to have added it to my graphic novel collection.
With that said the novel is still quite good. There are lots of moments that are quite touching, and you actually care for the charectors by the end (remarkable given no dialogue, and the quickness of the story).
One Technical Complaint is that Kid should have put the page numbers for each song on something other than the actual CD. Because in order to know when to play certain songs i need to look at the actual CD, and stop my cd player.
All in all I really enjoyed Nufonia. Just be forewarned that it is short.
