I loved this and read the 170 pages straight through because I just couldn't stop. I have fun the cartoons and books of Roz Chast and purchased two of her prior books. To explain my relation to Manhattan: I was a Connecticut suburb dweller for 45 years married to a NYC commuter who never wanted to return to The Town on weekends so I rarely went. My early visits were in the 70s and 80s when it was dangerous. I then created more trips for museum and Broadway shows to expose my children to art history and performance art for their homeschooling education. I then moved to Texas and now I regularly visit NYC as a tourist (and visiting my friend) for my own private enjoyment of the ast divides the book into these topics, an introduction, layout (the map), walking around, how to use the subway, things to do, flora and fauna, food, apartments, and a chapter on how Manhattan is always changing and how it is various put to various kinds of people. Thank you to Roz Chast for finally teaching me the layout of the city, the visuals with the simple to understand explanation was effective when just hearing these things said to me by my husband and my mate failed. I required to see it in her simplified diagrams. The rest was funny views and perspectives shared as only an insider with a sense of humor could share. The page on the empty subway vehicle killed me. I loved the cartoons as well as the old photos.If you don't know of Roz Chast and wish a fun book about Manhattan allow this be your introduction. If you know and love the cartoons and illustrations and books of Roz Chast then you already know you are going to wish to read and own this book. I plan to preorder this for a bonus for my NYC mate and her family. If you are a lover of graphic books, cartoons or comics for adults you will have fun this even if you have never been to The City. Love it, 5 stars.
Cartoonist Roz Chast - whose work has appeared often in the The Fresh Yorker and in previously published books, seemed to strike gold in her latest book of cartoons, "Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant". That book, which was about the aging of her parents and how she coped with it, "spoke" to many, a lot of people in my age group, who often had elderly parents we were responsible for. And, the book reminded US of OUR coming problems, as WE aged. "Good times...", as they say, bemoaning our current lot and fearing for the future, all in one z Chast's newest book, "Going Into Town: A Love Letter to Fresh York", is a bit of a various animal. Please note that to Roz Chast, "New York City" actually means the island of Manhattan. Originally set forth as a tutorial to her college-age daughter who had grown up in the northern suburbs of Fresh York, and was now moving to the city, the book is a joyful look at Fresh York City, both its past and future, but, mostly its present. Roz had grown up in Brooklyn and ventured into Manhattan with her parents on rare, unique occasions, so a lot of what she was writing to her daughter would have applied to her when she finally moved to Manhattan as a young adult. (She and her husband moved to the suburbs to raise their two children.) Chast's unique drawings, combined with spot-on commentary about the town and its people, is a charming reminder to all of us not good people who may go to Fresh York on vacation, but don't obtain to live in that unique place, with the traffic jams, the road food, the noises and smells, all of which combine to create Manhattan, Manhattan."Going Into Town" is a sweet book. It truly is a "love letter to Fresh York".
In “Going Into Town: A Love Letter to Fresh York,” Roz Chast combines the literal power of the letter form with the visual power of illustration. It’s a map of love – for a town and its people, traditions and history - drawn by a mother for her college and NYC-bound daughter.Her letter-map also doubles as a memoir, as Chast weaves in tales of her childhood visits to the town with her parents, and solo day trips from her home in suburbia. Unlike her other books in which the reader is more a fly-on-the-wall observer (albeit, one doubled over with laughter), this is a more intimate work. She may writing her daughter, but thanks to the map concept, we feel like we are part of the journey, too.I have always appreciated Chast’s work, but this one, I love. This is her best book in a long and ‘illustrious’ portfolio.
Roz Chast grew up in Brooklyn (before it became trendy) in the same neighborhood that I did; in fact, we even attended the same high school. So I laughed out loud when she describes the destiny she avoided: commuting every day to Manhattan wearing beige help hose and clinging to a subway rtunately, Roz Chast evaded that fate and did move to “the city.” But like a lot of town dwellers. she eventually moved an hour north of the city. When her own daughter decides to attend college in Manhattan, she made this book—a graphic memoir that is, in essence, a love note to the Huge h private and practical (there’s a amazing guide, for example, to the main museums and the main parks), this is a hilarious, dead-on look at Manhattan: where the town bird may well be the pigeon, the wildlife consists of mice, rats, and GIANT rats, and interesting storefronts and objects ill, there’s no other town like it – “the best put in the world, an experiment, a melting pot, a war to the death, an opera, a musical comedy, a tragedy, none of the above, all of the above.” It’s a “must have” book for any Fresh Yorker, former Fresh Yorker, or anyone who has heard of or dreamt of Fresh York. And, while it lacks the introspection and poignancy of Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?, it is what it is…a wonderfully illustrated look at a one-of-a-kind town as only Roz Chast could create.
If you're a fan of Roz Chast, then this book is a no brainer. If you're fresh to Roz Chast, then this book is a amazing introduction to her special style of drawing and wit. A guidebook and love letter to the island of Manhattan, "Going Into Town" is a surprisingly helpful tutorial to getting around Manhattan and an enjoyable romp through the town and Roz Chast's mind. Although not as ambitious in scope or breadth as her unbelievable "Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant," "Going Into Town" is a pleasant method to spend your time.
A couple of years ago I was lucky enough to attend a talk in Atlanta by Roz Chast in connection with publication of her latest book, "Can't We Talk About Something More Pleasant?" That book was and is hilarious, the more so for being about something so unpleasant -- old age and senility. The humor was sometimes excruciatingly piercing because of the obvious pain that informed it as she watched her parents decline despite all of her frantic efforts to slow or stop the end of her talk, someone asked about what she was working on next. In answer she recounted her love for Manhattan and her reluctant move to the suburbs to raise her children. She said she had never lost her love for the city, and was thinking about a "love letter" to NYC. This book is the result, and is that something "more pleasant" that we should be talking about. As Chast writes in the first few pages, it began as a "small booklet I created for my daughter before she left her home in Suburbia to attend college in Manhattan." The book very much keeps this hero as a guidebook throughout, explaining its primary physical layout, how to obtain around, and pointing out its a lot of features such as its museums and parks. But of course this is Roz Chast, so in spite of its straightforwardness the narrative is interrupted and embellished with a dozens of delightful digressions about such things as the city's amazing dozens of standpipes, or the quirky stores that sell "90 jabillion kinds of ribbon," or amazingly tempting off-brands of lipstick.Other necessary insights about the town contain a drawing of its official tree, a panel on the follies of taking your cat for a walk, an inventory of flora and fauna of the town (official animal: pigeon), and a reappearance of her parents, who always brought their own snacks to the town but never water "because back in the Olden Days, people didn't need to hydrate themselves every fifteen minutes. Who knows why this was?!? It's a medical mystery.""Going Into Town" has all of the hallmarks of Chast's quirky sense of humor, her cock-eyed perceptions and semi-primitive but highly detailed drawing style. If the humor is not quite as biting as her latest book, it's still full of surprises. As when she informs us that if you feel there is nothing to do in Manhattan, "you might be dead."
I spent my childhood in Cheyenne, Wyoming, and remember fondly visiting Manhattan every few years with my Fresh York-born mother to visit grandparents for entire summers. These were magical visits, full of experiences far removed from my "normal." I recall my wonder at all of the ethnic variety, observing the Greek Independence Day Parade, perhaps, and returning to Grandma's apartment in Washington Heights where the signs in the shop windows were in Yiddish (the signs are in Spanish now). We visited a playground to play, instead of going into the back yard, and the kids there spoke to me in broken English and to their parents in Yiddish and Spanish. We ate bialys and chow mein and took the subway to the beach, which they called the shore, and walked along the Promenade in is this kind of globe that Roz Chast attempts to preview for her daughter who is beginning college in Manhattan. She has written a "guide" that is both general (how to locate an address, for example) and private (her joy in finding a quiet spot in The Met). Much of the tip would be condescending and insulting, if it were not accompanied by the cartoons that illustrate the tip with the most outlandish and hilarious examples. You'll have to read the book to explore the official animal of Manhattan. Even parts of the book which I did search insulting, those dealing with tourists, are an illustration of the parochial, elitist view that a lot of Fresh Yorkers I've met seem to possess, and should be included in a tutorial for one's daughter. Fortunately, on my visits to Manhattan as an adult, I've found numerous Fresh Yorkers to be helpful and willing to reveal their inner tour tutorial personas. Roz, you've done a mitzvah for your daughter.
I want I had read Roz Chast’s “Going Into Town: A Love Letter to Fresh York” before my latest trip to Fresh York City! While not a tutorial book in the strictest sense, there is actually a lot of info and amazing tip packed in here! Not to mention humor!I’m a long-time fan of Chast’s work (“Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant”, brought me to tears – it was so close to my own experiences) and so it was a treat to dive into “Going Into Town” just a month after my NYC trip. It brought back pleasant (and a few unpleasant) memories of the trip and also support explain a few things that had confused me is would create a terrific bonus for a mate planning a trip to NTC!
Chast disclaims this being a Manhattan travel tutorial but, if not that, it's at least an *orientation* guide. There’s some history, a bit of memoir, and quite a bit of practical (and entertainment!) value in her chapters about getting oriented to the borough (the grid layout of roads and avenues), getting around (walking and taking the subway), her favorite parks and museums, notes about housing, and a sort of anti-restaurant guide. It’s all presented in her trademark handwritten font and color cartoons full of eccentricities and humor.And along the way, it accumulates into something even better: a love letter to Fresh York, full of appreciations that brought tears to my eyes. Brava!
I was born in Fresh York Town and spent a amazing deal of my youth living in Westchester County, but it's been years since I've been able to visit the city. I read Going Into City in one short period of time and a smile was on my face from begin to finish. This book is targeted for those planning to live in The City, offering, as it does, helpful tip for those worried but expectant souls, but it's amazing for any who too have loved this town or. perhaps wish to. I can still, a day later, still experience the joy this book gave me.
not only a amazing app, but the best resource i have found so far for learning go (I don't have a teacher).The criticism of being too short is unwarranted: I search there is a lot of content to go through. Shows how to manage a android game from begin to finish, and builds your mastery incrementally
I love this application and it helped me understand more than what I knew from just playing. Only thing I have to say is as a go player I know there are more for a 30 kyu to learn before he/she is ready for a game. If the developers of this application can do it I'll love to see fuseki and joseki here too. And maybe learning android games we can play from first move to latest so that we can learn from to improve.
Amazing Not poor for the basics. Will present you primary moves to teach you the fundamentals. Besides playing a person this is another amazing method to learn. Only drawback is its kind of short. This company makes a Japanese language go issue solver that has method more. Waiting for the English version.
Is there any possibility you can modernize this android game with fresh characters, tracks & give option the steering wheel to the right (I'm right-handed person)? Using the steering wheel in the left side of screen hurts my wrist from constantly keeping it in that direction 😫 I know this android game is old & released long time ago but it is still so much fun & addicting! 😁👍
Doesn't work! I played this on a computer before and it was awesome! But it seems like on smartphone or phone or any other electronics, it doesn't work. There is a blank screen and melody comes up randomly without the pictures. But if you play this android game on computer, it will work. I will present you where to obtain this android game on computer. Go to Google, type in Basic Games, click all games, go to the letter 'G' and search Go Kart Go, Nitro! And there, you can play an amazing android game of racing karts! Hope you have fun racing with your other teammates!
Don't work I downloaded the game, and a black screen is all that would show. I closed it several times, and still only a black screen. So, I uninstalled it and reinstalled it, but still only a black screen. Why do you have a android game application that you are not maintaining? Should be taken out of the play shop if you're not going to fix the issues so that it can be played. Just a suggestion!!!!
Hate it This android game is being stupid. When I first begin playing, there is a black screen. But the melody is still going. And while it's black like 10 ads are popping up. Why am I getting so a lot of ads? I never even got to play it. And it looks fun,plz fix.
Okay so I have seen a lot of people in the comments saying it 'doesn't work a black screen only appears' well to have the application to not do that what you need to do is basically turn of any WiFi or data then it will work (it did for me on all my devices) Hope this helps!! If this does feel free to contact me via insta '@aethetic_looser' 😊😊😊
Needs work First off, the support page needs to be shown before you jump into your first race. The hud should be shown as the countdown is about on 2, not after the race starts. Second, you need more courses. 9 gets repetitive. Third, the ai needs work. I've seen some of them on "Racetracks" that turn into everything. I've even followed 8th around and they were doing donuts, going the wrong way, or following along the wall. Also, the method the ai takes control once you finish is just as wonky. Stuff are clueless.
CONTROLS NEED WORK! first of all the controls are abit differcult to use. test changing the controls *TO TAP LEFT & RIGHT* other than that its actually not bad. Most of the reviews are about a "BLACK SCREEN" close the application right after you begin the app, then fire it up again and it should run fine.
Hate Mi RATE 0 star. A tru mi cyant place zero star. Di screen black like tar. It download quick but wen u click it, u si plain black. Dis is foolishness, garbage, crap, one load a dudu inna pampaz. Couple years later: still same foolishness, u know how much things mi delete fi dis? Mi pics, vids, songs!? You guys just tell me to create sure that no one downloads this.
Poor - honor holly Looks amazing and it didnt take long to download, but when it comes on you see a black screen. The only method to tell that you are on the android game is by the music. Its a shame because it looks like a fun game. Later in the year I tried it with an honor 6 but had the same problem, don't bother downloading
Great! I was hesitant to download this android game because of the other reviews saying there is just a blank screen, but I am so glad I did! When I first opened the android game I gotta blank screen, but after closing it and reopening it again, it works great! Lots of fun the world's are amazing and the characters create me smile ☺
My thumb hurts They should totally change the controls my thumb starts to sting or turn soar after I play the android game they create it should be like Mad Birds Go tap one side of the screen to go left and the other to go right. I don't hate this android game but it needs fresh controls!
Needs auto acceleration Unlocked all 9 tracks in under 20 mins. This android game is clearly targeted towards kids. No skill required, just luck. I found the tracks to be well-designed and fun to play and the whole feel of the android game is just crazy and fun. Only issue is you accelerate by holding up on the dpad, and it's uncomfortable trying to steer left and right while still keeping the dpad in the up position. A easy auto acceleration function will solve this problem. Other than that I think it's a nice game.
So this android game was horrible. The graphics were horrible and especially the characters. Usually when play a android game they would actually present you how it goes. When I started playing I was like ' omg! They started before me how do I move it took me about 30 seconds to figure out and at every corner I crash into something fresh and the controller was really hard to move. This android game is rough and needs serious work and attention
IT WORKS! BUT Just after you begin it close it and begin it again and it will work after that , but the controls is too hard maybe they could create it like beach buggy ( tap on left screen to go left and same on the right , or steer ) , and I will rate it 5 stars! BTW , too lag for me
I was so fascinated--and entertained--by the narrator of this story that I actually read it in one sitting. Sugihara, a Japanese teenager, is both familiar and exotic. He's a [email protected]#$%, scrappy kid, a mixture of bravado and vulnerability, intelligence and naïveté. Sugihara's understanding of himself and his put in the globe is profoundly influenced by his circumstances: He's the son of Koreans who have lived most of their adult lives in Japan. Although I've read a few articles about discrimination versus Koreans and other minorities in Japan, this first-person novel allows the American reader to understand the problem on a private level and to feel the identity confusion and alienation that is the effect of systemic discrimination. No aspect of Sugihara's life is untouched by the fact of his ethnicity. When he and a Japanese girl from a "good" family fall in love, even that joy is distorted by a sense of foreboding--what will happen when she finds out he's Korean?Reading fiction in translation can be problematic--characters can wind up "sounding" as though they've been poorly dubbed. *GO* is exceptional in its authenticity of voice. The love story is awkward and real. The humor-as-defense that Sugihara relies on to obtain through his difficult life is genuinely funny. Although there's some minor cursing and a couple of sex scenes, I think this would be a particularly amazing book for any high-school aged children you might know. I'm looking forward reading more Kaneshiro!
Can you hide in plain sight behind a name you were asked to assume? But perhaps you don’t care about passing; you’d rather duke it out and literally beat down all challengers. Until you meet a certain someone who assumes you are Japanese… Maybe it’s time to choose. Do you take the chance?This novel is so much better than I was expecting from the sample. While it has a slow start, it’s actually a very fast, engrossing read. GO is a unbelievable slice-of-life novel that its description just doesn’t do justice at all. This is not a romance; it’s a journey to adulthood and self-identity. I finished it incredibly moved and reaching for the Kleenex box, fully intending to read it again. Note: It's a short novel at 172 pages.GO shows us a young man growing up as a Korean in Japan. Embodying Koreans in Japan. Enduring racism, forced to carry IDs, request permission to re-enter the country, and labeled as foreigners, even though you were born and raised in Japan and share the same DNA and genetic markers. Looked down upon, barred from certain jobs, attacked without provocation, judged… A put where students crowd outside your school on a “Korean hunt” waiting to beat you up because it’s April 29th, and somehow Emperor Showa’s birthday reminds them that you’re an “enemy,” even though you go to the same hospital when you’re gihara/Lee is fighting his father, his culture, and his country with his fists, with his intellect, and with every fiber of his being for the right to be himself, not defined by others, by paperwork, or by his blood. Can the one girl he shares so much in common with search it in her heart to accept that he’s still the same person she loves, even if his name is actually Korean and not Japanese?I read GO by Kazuki Kaneshiro as a First Reads (Kindle First) February 2018 offering.
only one train unless you are willing to pay. extra trains and tracks cost too much and no method to earn through progress. also as the races progress it's impossible for children to beat. requires coordination and reflexes most small children don't have. lasted a couple of weeks then uninstalled.
we are upset that after purchasing this game... it only worked twice! Now, after picking your engine it will go to the map and IT HANGS! its frozen and wont allow you play. we have to reset again and again because it no longer works! We wish our cash back... unless it works! SOS!!!
What happened to the older version?? I had alot of trains unlocked but with the recent modernize I have lost them all!! The graphics may be alot better, but Thomas is the only unlocked train unless I wish to pay!?? Not satisfied as this WAS a amazing app!!
14 quid otherwise you will have to hold telling your child they can only have 1 rely as it's a children android game you should be able to unblock engines and "next levels/tracks through thing to see here just another greedy company trying to create cash off children asking parents.
