Format: Paperback
This is the story of Robot, who works in a sandwich shop and soon falls in love with a hard working, modern day woman. Robot listens to music 24/7, never taking off his headphones. The woman works hard and seems to have little else going on in her life. Their lives come together, with a few ups and downs, leading toward a surprising ending.
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.

As a huge fan of Kid Koala and as a huge fan of graphic novels I was really looking forward to this. Before i got it I noticed it kept on being stressed in press that it was 300 pages long. I now know that that seems to be an attempt to cover up the fact that it literally takes 16 minutes to read (the accompanying CD is 16 minutes long). Why so short? because there are almost no words, a "silent movie" of sorts.
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.

wow, without doubt this silent graphic novel is one of the best. it's so touching. after reading it, i really wanted to cry, i felt so bad for the robot. it's lack of words only makes it better. i haven't actually listened to the CD (me and my friend read the entire thing, in Towers, we were so enraptured), but im sure that's great too. and though its a quick read the first time around, you should go back and re look at it. it took me and my friend two times to comprehend the utter briliance of this. ah, wow, i'm in awe :D.

Excellent album, probably will not be appreciated by majority of rap fans, but all of Kid Koala's long time followers will be stunned by this excellent "book on tape". It is good to look at the book, listen to the album, then do them both at the same time (as it is intended to do so). The combination of lazy synth and sampling is something that has never been done before.

The book is beautifully illustrated and the dialog-less format is fascinating. I am looking forward to the next book. Warning: rather sad ending.
