5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Paul Jetten on 10 Sept. 2004
Format: Paperback
I bought this book the other day and fianlly got round to "reading" it last night. I put on the accompanying CD and sat back in bed. The gentle ambient tones crackled through the speakers as the brilliantly drawn love story unfolded. This is an amazing book and a beautiful little CD if a little short at just over 16mins, but that is just enough time to read the book, although if you want to take longer to read it you can always just press "repeat." I have never heard much Kid Koala before, and I'm sure the music here is different to his usual output, but nonetheless it is definately worth a look.

If you know who Kid Koala is then you just have to get this thing - it is really cool. And if you haven't heard of him, then go check him out and if you like the music then Nufonia Must Fall is really worth it.

A Robot in Love... 31 Mar. 2003
By A. Stender - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Takes 16 minutes to Read (3.5 stars) 24 Mar. 2003
By Stephen Goldberger - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
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.

Taking the art of the Dj to a new high 16 Sept. 2003
By Trevor Pickard - Published on
Format: Audio CD
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.

ah THIS WAS GREAT 27 Sept. 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.
highly entertaining, interesting concept 5 July 2013
By X - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book was a fast read but highly entertaining and an interesting concept. The accompanying music provided the perfect background (the tracks are generally 1-2 minutes long, so I kept it on repeat until the section was over).
