    Outskirts of Vision, by Nir Levie, is not like anything I have ever read before. It is a graphic novel, and the only thing I can describe it as, to someone that doesn't quite know what a graphic novel is, is that imagine a comic book but with an enticing story line, and deep plot.

It is a graphic novel, and the only thing I can describe it as, to someone that doesn't quite know what a graphic novel is, is that imagine a comic book but with an enticing story line, and deep plot. Set in an apocalyptic world, we follow Ben, an architect, through ever changing cities...There is only one other person that Ben talks too, and together they set out to figure out why the city is changing, and in the process they change their own views of the world. This was certainly a different type of book for me, I have never been a fan of this type of novel, but the story line and the drawings drew me in. It can be a bit hard to read, given the size of the print, so the bigger the screen the better, but I was actually quite pleased with what the story offered. If reminded me of how my husband and I think...the "what ifs", and the ever present "how can we be sure" This story will make you think, and I like that...in books, and movies, and anything else in life, I like things that make me think. Plus, the drawings are fantastic. They are simple, but make a statement, and give you exactly what you need as you read this story.

    This is not a review: I can't say I understand what this book is about (beyond what has already been shared in the description). The premise is mind-boggling and the author's a bit of a smartypants-genius with his metaphysical tripe. I am eager to have my husband read this book and tell me what he thinks of it. I know I am going to like his version. I can already see myself exclaiming, "Really? Is this what it was? Did we read the same book?" And then, I am going to read it again.

So, it's the type of book you want to read with someone to get its full worth! This book goes well with Italo Calvino's Invisible Cities. So peeps who have read or want to read one will do well to read the other as well. Frankly, Invisible Cities was "uh!" after a point. But, a lot of people like it, and I get what they like about it, and I like that too, but Calvino just didn't deliver it for me ... whereas this one did! I think. :)

    Outskirts of Vision is a book about architecture, cities, the apocalypse and Ben, a young architect who is on a mission. Ben and his confidante, the city's most violent and rebellious anarchist, take us on a journey about "cities," buildings, roads, and streets...a journey of city planning mystery :) Outskirts of a Vision is a graphic story unlike nothing else I have ever read...The plot is deep and enticing...it will force you into pondering about life and its ways...

Nir Levie delivers an excellent story with great dialogue and complex notes so if you are looking for a light quick read, Outskirts of a Vision is not the book for you...I love the drawings also because they complement the story really well and they are beautiful yet simple... It really is an awesome book that will have you captive to its twists and turns...

    A simply illustrated, yet beautifully rendered look at the role of the creation of cities through the eyes of humans and the role of cities in the creation of humans. Part Guy Debord and part Paul Virillio mashed up with modern graphic artistry this is worth a look if you are interested in deep thinking graphic novels as a way to penetrate ideas. This is definitely not a DC/Marvel type of novel, more something an avant-garde artist would produce in today's day and age.

    I am not a fan apocalyptic stories, and dystopian societies, but I do love graphic novel, unfortunately this book was a let down, because of the tiny print on this ebook. It was very difficult to read. I couldn't appreciate the story. From the little bit I was able to read is not for everyone. It is dark and unique, not for young adults, definitely for adults with all the gore. The drawing are very well done and this helped me to understand a bit of what I was reading.

    Well all I can actually say about this book that it is a unique read. I never read anything like this before. I finished this book in a few sittings. I did have a hard time reading this because of the font that was used. It did bring me from event to event of the lifestyle. You follow the story of the protagonist Ben who travels around visiting cities that change. Its a unique take on a not so unique setting.

    Good art cool plot This was an interesting read. The art is very good, especially the cityscapes. The plot is good and takes you through twists and turns as the main characters view of the world around them changes outside and inside their own minds.

    This was odd. Like, really odd. I don't usually read graphic novels, but this was a free grab, so I tried it out. I can't say it was bad, but it sure was confusing. The illustrations were awesome, though. If it wasn't for that, I think I wouldn't have finished it. I'll definitely remember it! This was odd. Like, really odd.

    Heavy on architecture and philosophy. Clear glimpses of Tel Aviv in the realist sections.
