Review: The Sound of the World By Heart

34150927 The Sound of the World By Heart by Giacomo Bevilacqua
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I received a review copy through Edelweiss, this does not affect my review.

Blurb: An experiment in social isolation turns into a journey of self-discovery as a photojournalist commits to spending sixty days in New York city without talking to a single person. More than just an exercise in observation and self-control, he's hoping to forget a troubled past and mend a broken heart. But the city has a sneaky way of throwing the best laid plans and noble efforts to waste, revealing secrets that lie right in front of him. All he has to do is open his eyes…

A touching, vividly illustrated journey through contemporary modern New York, exploring what it takes to find yourself — and maybe your soul mate — in the middle of a crowded, bustling modern world.

This one was strange. Definitely not what I had in mind, but it did keep me entertained, so that wasn't necessarily a bad thing. The art was very well done, and the story was unique. The story was unlike others I have read, and was easy to follow. The characters interesting, and the experiment makes things entertaining. I loved the ending, and didn't see it coming!
