    One thought on “Parade (with Fireworks)

    1. I used to be completely obsessed with this song called The Strong Suit by this guy called Cex because, while the beat was rudimentary and his flow was a little bit too nerd rap for my taste, the lyrics themselves were this dense, abstract surreal story about how we recreate our parents issues in ourselves I would tell anybody who would listen It s like what the best short fiction does, maaaaaaan Because I was a pretentious college asshole So, Parade With Fireworks does the same thing The actual [...]


    2. Politics is one of those things that just really makes no sense to me Not political theory I understand to some decent degree the ins and outs of various hypothetical governmental systems I understand capitalism versus socialism versus communism I understand monarchies versus oligarchies versus plutocracies versus democratic republics I understand foreign and domestic policy and the reasons for supporting different perspectives within these spheres.What I don t understand is how things within th [...]


    3. Summary Loosely based in fact and family anecdote, Parade with fireworks gives us a tense and violent scene from post WWI Italy and its shattering effect on one family The parade is actually a group of Communist party musicians being escorted through town by the protagonist s brother and cousin, both of whom intend to protect them from a gang of Fascists Of course, tempers flare and events spiral out of control with tragic consequences, leaving the hero in big trouble with the law.Plot The story [...]


    4. I seem to share the opinion of many others who have read this before me The point of this book escapes me I didn t care much about the characters, I was completely lost with the plot, and when I found out at the end that this true tale was not actually all that accurate, I was pretty disappointed in the whole thing On the good side, this book took me about 15 minutes to read, and the artwork was lovely and reminded me very much of animated film which made sense when I learned that the author had [...]


    5. Actually, I really hated this book but the artwork was REALLY good, and the way it was drawn and coloured truly carried the story with it, so I can t say I hated EVERY aspect of it.The main thing I hated, was how pointless it was I mean, it s fact, and a historical record of sorts, but then it s followed up with the author s admission that he may or may not have even told those facts correctly, so Why did I read this again It starts out with a long long prologue about how bad bad things happened [...]


    6. Parade with Fireworks is an interesting tale about the clashes, in post Great War Italy, of the ideologies of Fascist and Socialist Parties that are tearing the country apart, and how differences in thought tend to have an unintended consequence great loss.Although the conflicts of the story arise because of contradictory ideas, the characters seem to be affected in ways that are not directly tied to their parties, but with each other and their hate of Otherness Another greatly moving disturbing [...]


    7. I really loved the idea of this book and it is beautiful Family history, handed down to the author, delving into Italian WW II history, the struggle in Italy between the Fascists and the Socialists, based on the author s family stories handed down and it looks beautiful, but I felt it was pretty confusing, too much left out for me to really fully get enough of a sense of it The watercolors are the best thing about the book, capturing a time and place


    8. Parade with Fireworks, a graphic novel based on a true story from Maropati, Italy, in 1923 is beautifully rendered However, without an understanding of Post WWI history of Fascism and Socialism in Italy, specifically, the story is difficult to follow However, the universality of the themes makes it worth a read war separates not just countries and people within countries, it also separates families.



    9. Poignant, brief, interesting The art is interesting, very dynamic Some of the panels are cinematic, others tell their tale with symbols.The text had some errors always frustrating to see.



    10. A bit difficult to follow I didn t really begin to understand everything that was going on until the trial very close to the end Clearly I need to brush up on my Italian history.
