I like this one better than KL NOIR RED.The stories are memorable and interestingAYTIMEreally creeps me out.
KL Noir White has 18 unfiltered stories hence the cigarette box cover art about the darker side of life in Kuala Lumpur To be fair, 18 unfiltered stories set in Ulu Yam doesn t have the same commercial appeal, so you can t blame the people behind this anthology for coming up with yet another anthology about the rear end of the capital city of Malaysia With everything associated with the word noir , this one claims to have stories packed with moral ambiguity, violence and passion, et cetera In ot [...]
Dicks Lots of dicks.And fun Lots of fun.A compilation of short stories that is sure to leave you overwhelmed with feelings so powerful it ll haunt you for days.
Not a fan of short stories But I really like these three Playtime, Time Agents and The Aviator, Titanic A Nightmare Before Christmas.
To be honest, it s not that i dislike the book because there are actually some amazing stories with twisted endings that really got me by surprise Big Bertha and The Stones of Justice by Angeline Woon My Father, The Hero by Eileen Lian what you see isnt always what u get Time Agents by Lim Li Anne i really like the storyline because of the historical content Playtime by Arif Zulkifli that psychotic kid is no joke though haha The Beggars by Cheryna The Banger by Jimie ChengHowever there are also [...]
I gave this book 4 stars because of these stories Top 5 Rankings 1 The Beggars 5 stars 2 Time Agents3 My Father, My Hero4 Dick5 Yummy Meats
Penis, male genitals, dick dan yang sewaktu dengannya Yes, you get it, almost part of the story ada kena mengena dengan isu diatas Because this is a compilations of short stories makanya agak susah nak bagi rating for the whole book Just going to list some of my favourite Mad About Mary Terence Toh Yummy Meats Terence Tang Dick Hasrul Rizwan Time Agents Lim Li Anne Playtime Arif ZulkifliWhite is a bit mild and kind to me I prefer Red much actually The truly dark sides thingy.
Let s go beyond the portrayal of KL from tourism magazines and travel articles This book reveals the dark side of KL, the truth about so called beautiful city of M sia Playtime by Arif Zulkifli has made me What the many times The story is terrifying but I like the horror This story is the I m not gonna think twice to rate it five stars Other short stories that suit my preference are Time Agents by Lim Li Anne, Dick by Hasrul Rizwan, Savages by Nadia khan, and The Aviator, Titanic Nightmare Befor [...]
Aku kiaskan antologi ini sebagai sebuah periuk yang di dalamnya terisi tomyam Semua cerpen memainkan peranan masing masing dalam melengkapkan sajian KL Noir White dengan secukup rasa Time Agents hasil sentuhan Lim Li Anne benar benar menepati selera fantasi aku Manakala persembahan Cheryna Zamrinor dalam The Beggars adalah pelengkap ramuan apabila menyuntik pengalamannya sebagai barista ke dalam karya pada kali ini Hal itu yang menjadi daya penarik terhadap citarasa seorang aku.
so much genitals of the supernaturalmale genitals KL Noir White veered a little unsteadily to the sensationalist side of things A little like reading a news tabloid, and sometimes feels like it was taken right out of Mastika Sure, creating dark corners of a city can sometimes look like pulp fiction, but I m not sure I buy the premise of some of the experimental stories Stories I just couldn t digest at allYummy Meats and Dick If something somewhere was supposed to be funny or poignant, I didn t [...]
KL Noir, kompilasi cerita pendek berkisarkan kehidupan gelap di kota metropolitan Kuala Lumpur Antara short stories yang banyak plot twist Haha.Cerita yang betul betul mengesankan bagi saya adalah Mad About Mary Walaupun ceritanya simple, berlatarbelakangkan kehidupan seorang warga miskin kota yang sering dicemuh dan dihina, akhirnya Siva menjadi Hero dengan menyelamatkan gadis pujaannya Mary Agak lucu dan touching , menyelami kehidupan Siva sebagai gelandangan yang buta huruf dan berhati mulia [...]
When a book mainly highlights the dark undertones of a city and its society, it does give you the reader a somewhat grim idea of the whole place You d assume that the city has nothing good to offer but only the dangers lurking at every corner So, if you re planning on a first time visit to KL, it s probably not a good idea to read this as the selected short stories this book comprises of really does have the power of lingering in your mind for a little while.All in all, I really liked it Hence, [...]
This is the 30th book I ve read in the 30 books challenge I ve set for 2013 Wohooo OK The review Noir is set in the complexity and nuanced way of living in Kuala Lumpur bringing light into the dark alleys of its city s inhabitants dark stories.Its quite hard to get into, no pun intended, as most of darkness has to do with men s penis, as standard for Fixi ation with the small organ So like all of compilations, there are going to be lukewarm ones, a little contrived and then there are the great o [...]
Suka sebab sesuai dengan White , semua cerpen menampilkan watak yang kita rasa suci je tapi rupa rupanya jeng jeng jengMy favourites Flowers for KK hell hath no fury like a woman scornedYummy Meats kelakar dan cam what the what merepek hahaDick now i know what s all the fuss about minyak lintahMy Father The Hero i think that kid is brilliant kesian kena buat camtu tapi, parents memang selalu ignorant kan pasal benda gini.Breadwinner short, simple, brief, on point.However, takde yang bagi effect [...]
This book is a bit plain maybe because it is white in colour so yeah idk My favourites these were rated 4 and above My Father, The Hero by Eileen Lian the plot twist was really asdfghjkl Dick by Hasrul Rizwan Time Agents by Lim Li Anne Playtime by Arif Zulkifli the most disturbing The Banger by Jimie Cheng Clippings by Amir Sharipuddin
Cerita yang berbekas di hati1 My Father, The Hero Eileen Tan2 Time Agents Lim Li Anne3 Playtime Arif Zulkifli4 The Banger Jimie Cheng5 The Aviator, Titanic A Nightmare Before Christmas Raja Faizal
You want gory tale You want twisted stuff You want disturbing story This is the book for you It s amazing how this book didn t got banned If this were to put in bahasa, I m sure it will got the conservatives and religious authority in rage I m looking forward to read the rest of KL NOIR.
The first half was ok The second half was better Good line up Still, kenapa cerita hadimnor sikit sangat Overall better than red ye la bila dah ada dua kena lah compare kan Walaupun comparison is a thief of joy, tapi this kind of comparison boleh buat improvement kot kan Sekian.
I ve read KL Noir Red and I think both books are awesome But then, Kl Noir White is less gruesome and you can see that how people in KL wanted to live their lives purely but certainly we know how s life there I can t wait for the next book.
never ask someone to describe this for you do spend some time reading this by yourself.
White is preferable Stories I liked, savages, mad about Mary, time agents, and play time The next and yellow
I ll go for White after finish every story inside.
I love RED than WHITE.My favorite shorties flowers for kk big bertha and the stones of justice the banger clippings not in order
Loved it It s incredible how this book managed to portray many incidents that never happened but are so twisted and fucked up on so many levels My favorites would be Clippings it s ending sounds like it could be a scene in Sweeney Todd the fleet streets demon barber movie or something , The Beggars no explanations needed we would all agree that it s good and Breadwinner yeah it s very short but it s good short, it gives room for your own imaginations It s great how these authors portray the stor [...]
Personally, I enjoyed KL Noir White than KL Noir Red because I anticipate every single story in it and couldn t say so for the previous one From 18 stories, these are my favorites 1 Mad About Mary Look what love can do to an innocent man.2 My Father, The Hero I couldn t stop cursing for a minute when I read the few last sentences of this story Wow, didn t see it coming.3 Dick Oh well, simply because it is about a dick Haha, no lah It s just amazing a mere simple human organ can do damages and g [...]
From the local buzz that this curated collection of supernatural noir stories set in KL created, my expectations for its quality soared However they were not met, and did not even manage to scrape the bottom of my expectations Some stories were alright and attention catching, but none were thought provoking enough to linger in my mind Most were badly written in my opinion, with choppy scene cuts, cliffhangers that didn t work, overly simple ineffective language, etc I felt that direct advisory [...]
KL Noir is a collection of short stories akin to the anthologies Malaysian students read in secondary school I decided to rate this book at 4 stars as I like the concept that Buku Fixi the publisher has put forth here.KL Noir essentially comprises of stories that take place around Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia s capital city KL has citizens that come from all walks of life and this book dutifully reflects that reality.The stories in KL Noir White range from dark morbid to funny whimsical Being called a [...]
A couple of hits and misses, but probably better than Red And I just couldn t grasp the idea of the so many accumulated genitalia that seems to be the underlying theme of the book Which I have no problem with actually, it s just a mere thought It s just that if we could really go beyond the darkness of the city as the title suggests WHITE But I don t really mean the typical white ideas of racial integrity, nationalisme and all that jazz.
Tak adil rasanya nak judge satu buku ni terus memandangkan dalamnya adalah pelbagai penulisan cerpen dari penulis yang berbeza Some was boring, some was flat, and some are too good to be true Ambil masa jugak aku nak habiskan buku ini Memandangkan koleksi cerpen, jadi yang rehat nya lebih banyak dari terus membaca Hehehe But still ok, sebab shorts stories yang bahagian2 akhir Berjaya membuatkan the whole book looks damn good Kira mcm nice ending la ni.
