I Never Liked You
In this memoir of the author’s teenage years, set in a suburb chexter Montreal, the illustrations are so minimalist, and the text so sparse, that the reader is bound to fill in the blanks.
Chester Brown seems to be an archetypical awkward, introverted kid, who is mocked by his school mates because he refuses to swear.
He also struggles with showing his feelings and with engaging emotionally. The focus of the memoir is on his interaction with girls and with his mentally ill mother, and on the feeling of terror that comes with expressing deep emotions.
The reader is never provided with explanations about his behavior and Chester’s face is expressionless throughout. There are only occasional glimpses into his thoughts. What is really going on inside his mind? Is he emotionally empty? Or is it only teenage angst? The reader is left to wonder. View all 6 comments. Jan 03, Anthony Vacca rated it really liked md. A sparse but unhurried rendering of Brown’s memories of being a teenager who ruthlessly toys with the affections of several starry-eyed girls.
Actually it’s not as bad as that, although Brown presents the actions of his hormone-riddled younger self with some severity. What really makes this graphic memoir “cooking with gas” Blame my creative writing instructor from college for that Carverism. I Never Liked You is ridden with unspoken guilt over Brown’s own emotional disconnect from the gruesome and protracted death of his mother, cgester it a meatier read gustavo just an account of post-pubescent awkwardness and sexually charged wrestling.
Affecting and brief; a half hour read with minor heartbreak. Feb 25, Brian rated it did not like it Recommends it for: This book was like listening to a drugged out hippy recounting his childhood.
He obviously doesn’t remember much, so whatever he does is automatically soooo profound. Apr 22, Robert rated it it was amazing Shelves: I’d only read bits and pieces of I Never Liked You when it was serialized in the original issues of Yummy Fur back in the early 90’s. This is the first time I’ve read the whole thing cover to cover, and I only did so because my friend and fellow cartoonist, Mari, raved about it to me recently.

I’d always been pretty lukewarm on Chester Brown for some reason but Mari is right: His use of an objective, unemotional narrative voic I’d only read bits and pieces of I Never Liked You when it was serialized in the original issues of Yummy Fur back in the early 90’s.
His use of an objective, unemotional narrative voice functions in direct contrast to the often-heartbreaking events of this autobiographical story and it works really well, underscoring the major story theme of unexpressed, repressed emotions and the resultant psychic fallout. Jan 14, Ill D rated it liked it Recommends it for: A minimalist approach to style equates to the equally understated emotions of the protagonist and author. Thin lines wrap around simplistic characters and the environment that ensconces them.
What it lacks in visual adornments it makes up for in honesty. Jul 09, Chris rated it really liked it. Imagine, for a moment, the comic strip world of Charlie Brown without the whimsy. Take away Pigpen and his ever-present cloud of dust. Take away Snoopy typing away atop his doghouse or dreaming of being the Red Baron. No teacher going “Mwah Mwah Mwah”.
No crazy big heads. When Lucy steals the football away gustaso before Charlie kicks it, no looney tooney somersaults in the air. Strip away, in other words, the cartooniness through which Charles Schultz filtered his despair, and what you’re left wit Imagine, for a moment, the comic strip world of Charlie Brown without the whimsy.
Strip away, in other words, the cartooniness through which Charles Schultz filtered his despair, and what you’re left with is the sad story of a lonely, bitter boy who more often that not ends up flat on his back, browwn black-haired girl laughing over him. I Never Liked Youa graphic memoir mr and drawn by Chester Brown and excerpted from his longer series Yummy Furtells of just such a lonely, bitter boy, in just such a cjester whimsy free world.
Here are a group of children seen mostly without vhester supervision: Chester, our lonely hero trapped in his own skin, his occasionally present little brother, Gordon. Across the street, the beautiful and sometimes stuck-up Connie who Chester may or may not like; her sister Carrie who definitely carries a perpetually unrequited flame for Chester.
And the requisite girl next door is here as well, chewter long dark-haired girl named Sky, who becomes as the red-head to Charlie Brown, a girl for Chester to miserably fantasize over. Jas different here is that Chester, while working in a comic-strip form, is not interested in locking these characters into a perpetual childhood, like Charlie Brown or Calvin and Hobbes, and he’s not interested in following in the footsteps of the cartoonish excess of those strips either.
Spanning most of his childhood, from the fourth grade, when he and Connie shared the walk to school everyday, on into high school, where such easy intimacy seems impossible, Chester manages to work a kind of minimalist magic.
He divides his life into those essential moments, and those essential moments, he pares down into a few pages of sparse, black and white panels. Such a stripped down tone, rather than lessening the emotional impact, gets at the naked vulnerability of Chester. It exposes the gentle fury he keeps locked inside–the restrained and confused yearnings, the silent struggle with the unnerving transformation of his body, of his desire, uas of the lives of those people around chesher, including his parents, especially his mom, whose own journey ends up having such an impact on Chester and on us the readers.
Not all hearts sing out loud after all, some go thump, thump, thump, silently to themselves, and all you can see from the outside is the barest shiver in the cloth covering their chest. May 14, Andrew rated it really liked it Shelves: I find it strange that this is the most popular book by Chester Je on this website.
I feel like his autobiography works are poor in comparison to his Louis Riel biography work and Ed the Happy Clown and gutado other fictional work. Nov 22, Jenny Gonzalez- Blitz rated it did not like it Shelves: Except his schizophrenic mother.

A biographical recounting of Brown’s own cchester as a young man of perpetual nonchalance, what stood out most about this subdued but weighty rendition, was the author’s delicate and downplayed exchange with gusrado mother which proved essential to the ending.
How Brown managed to provoke the reader’s emotion whilst maintaining an impassive tone made this work striking. Anybody suffering from depression, connection issues, laziness, or social phobias. Chester Brown I absolutely loved this one.
Chester Brown’s adolescence broqn drew me in completely. His seemingly distancing problem struck a chord with me.

The flow and feel of this melodramatic portrait is truly enhanced by the art style. I was actually stricken aghast when I saw his mother crippled and wasted lying in bed pg and his reluctance to open up. A very powerful piece of art. Sep 25, Dominick rated it really liked it Shelves: Stunning minimalist autobiographical graphic novel, in which Brown interweaves the story of his growth to teenagehood and sexual maturation gustadk the story of the deterioration and death of his mother.
Profound but elliptical, this book has a lot to say about emotional intimacy and repression, without ever saying any of it out loud. Apr 01, B. Frayn rated it it was amazing.
Aug 27, Elizabeth rated it really liked it Shelves: This is a story about an emotional maladjust making everyone around him miserable for no reason. I know Chester Brown also wrote a book called Paying For It about his experiences using prostitutes, which I really wanna read now, because it makes sense why someone this emotionally crippled would not only have to resort to prostitution, but would fail to understand or broen with how it is inherently degrading and damaging for women to have to rent their body out as a cum bucket for money.
Gustaddo I This is a story about an emotional maladjust making everyone around him miserable for no reason. In I Never Liked You, you are generally presented with a picture of a guy who thinks of himself as ‘a nice guy’ who is his own worst enemy. He seems at times utterly paralysed with his own emotional dislocation, which seems to just cement more and more as he grows up, into this emotionally dead, permanently closed-off teenager. However, he still seems to see himself as the main victim of this, despite how much this negatively impacts on the people around him.
