Many Deaths of Laila Starr
About this deal
Its one of those books that make you question your own life and existence and showing what life really is, how it fades away while we ponder on meaningless things when life is a gift itself and death the eventual conclusion.
This is reinforced by the dearth of images bleeding into the gutters; in fact, the only moment of bleeding, so far, is when Death is incarnated into the dead body of Laila Starr.
Struggling with her newfound mortality, Laila has found a way to be placed in the time and place where the creator of immortality will be born.
It was also about Darius Shah and the many other people who touched her and his life, and how it all intertwined to create a story that flowed freely. For a story about life and existence, the series doesn't have any pretensions—it's simple, pure, and magical. Merci à Ram V et Filipe Andrede, et désolé pour cet avis un peu brouillon que je rédige à chaud, les yeux encore humides de ma lecture.
The story is based on Hindu lore, focusing on the interplay between the mortal and the divine; Death (implied visually to be Kali, the Hindu goddess of death, time and change) mingles with spirits, humans and Brahman alike. The story shows the two of them overlapping and interacting throughout their lives, and throughout the many deaths of the former god of death.
