was too quiet and it wouldn t do me much good, even if my grades were perfect Thank you, teachers, I hate you too You didn t do much to help, by the way You sucked big time At the age of 20, I realised that I shouldn t have forced myself to interact with toxic people just because we had known eachother since primary school I decided that I wouldn t go to parties of people I hated just because all my friends would be there Thus, I found who my real friends are, the ones who accept me as I am The ones who respect my wish to stay home with a book instead of going to the cinema which I hate.Through the support of people very close to me, I found the strength to participate in group projects and to speak my mind To firmly stand behind it when I was convinced I was right To reply to any condescending remarks that sounded like aren t you a bit too quiet with a I m surprised you noticed, you are awfully loud kind of line that sends any f immediate silence.I cut off potential relationships when I visited houses devoid of books Houses without souls, occupied by people who were empty I hate small talk with people I don t know However, I can talk for hours with those who are special to me We introverts aren t stubbornly unresponsive It s just that we prefer to talk to the ones who really matter to us, about subjects that concern us I will never engage in a discussion about politics, TV, films or fashion I couldn t care less But if there is a discussion about books, sports, History, I forget to stop.I relived these moments through Tung s marvelous book Through her cozy, whimsical illustrations she takes us on a beautiful, heartfelt journey to the unique world of those of us who are traditionally called introverts I prefer to use the expression silent thinkers

unseemly Debbie tries to answer these questions about herself We follow her as she experiences college, the joys of marriage and her first serious job Debbie has a lot to learn about the world and herself it s a coming of age story There s not one part of me that did not connect with Debbie I kept nodding as she talked, for instance, about feeling uncomfortable in large groups, whether social or study groups, and as she discussed the need to be by herself in order to recharge Girl, I feel you Very reminiscent of SARAH S SCRIBBLES, so perhaps do not read these two back to back It follows of a linear pattern, though, thus making Debbie s life and thoughts easy to follow In other words, there is a storyline, whereas Sarah Andersen s books are filled with slice of life moments.Loved it

show me those shadowy parts of myself through her story.Also, the title Quiet Girl in a Noisy World perfectly gets me I recently listened to the podcast Quiet The Power of Introverts with Susan Cain and it fits wonderfully with this illustrated book, especially the parts of Debbie Tung s early childhood The podcast, where quiet voices are heard, is about introverted kids and focuses on giving parents and educators the tools to empower quiet kids Which is where the central theme of Quiet Girl in a Noisy World can be summed up by this Susan Cain quote Why shouldn t quiet be strong And what else can quiet do that we don t give it credit for The only tiny hindrance I want to mention were the time jumps and how they made the narrative a bit rocky and unclear at times, from going to college to meeting someone new to marriage to graduate school to flashbacks from her childhood all over the span of not that many pages But once it got its right footing, the story worked wonders.Speaking of which, here are the many moments that got me at my core I desperately wanted to push The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F ck by Mark Manson into her hands whenever she got stressed over declining a social outing It was beyond satisfying to finally see her accept her introverted self after doing some research on the topic, instead of trying to meet the many expectations of the extrovert ideal All in all

World wasn t written with me specifically in mind, but it could have been Debbie has totally nailed what being an introvert looks and feels like.In this graphic novel, we follow Debbie through her final year of college, meeting and marrying an extrovert, navigating the workplace and surviving the nightmare of social interactions, often by using her husband as a social shield From experiencing doubt about who she is and feeling different from the extroverts surrounding her who thrive on small talk, we see Debbie s transformation upon learning there s a word that describes her introvert Upon learning about her tribe, Debbie learns to accept herself as she is and begins to embrace her dreams and passions rather than trying to fit into the extrovert shaped box she s been struggling to fill.In a world that seems to be filled with extroverts probably because all of the introverts are at home or in hiding introverts outside of their natural habitat can be made to feel like they re from another planet when forced to interact with than one person at a time and from another galaxy if even one of those people are a stranger A stranger in the Dictionary of Introverts could be defined as a person who isn t a family member, partner or closest friend.Debbie is a very talented illustrator and captures the worldview of introverts so well that there will be people safely tucked away in their homes quietly murmuring, Me, too as they wander with hope through this graphic novel I loved that you can just as easily enjoy this book in snippets as you can reading from cover to cover I adored the use of a battery percentage above Debbie s head showing how long she has to go before she needs a recharge Should extroverts want to discover why we introverts act so weird in social situations and let s face it, we do this is the perfect way to find out because we ll most likely be too shy to tell you face to face.Through the wonder of internet anonymity, those who have read a couple of my book reviews most likely already know me better than some people who have been in my life for decades I know the pain of feeling alone in a roomful of people who are happily making small talk and the comfort of not feeling lonely at all when I get to recharge by myself My fellow introverts and I must have forgotten to register for Small Talk 101.If you don t know me you could be forgiven for wondering if I was born without a voice box If you ve managed to find your way through the labyrinth and cracked the code at the end to become a trusted friend then you may wonder if I ll ever shut up I guess that s just one of the many paradoxes of introversion.I received an ARC of this graphic novel from NetGalley thank you very much to NetGalley and Andrews McMeel Publishing for the

least partly introverts If you read a lot, as I do, you might prefer to read than be with others a lot of the time.Tung got known as many others have through her webcomics on this and related topics Some pages are one page self help memoir vignettes, but the book is largely a story of her self acceptance as an introvert who prefers to read, drink tea and write and draw rather than socialize And she has an extrovert boyfriend husband who understands her and whom she can reply on in social situations This is a book for introverts to help them feel normal, because Tung had to go through a process to accept herself She thought there was something wrong with her, then discovered words to describe herself in the literature such as empath, shy, introvert.Tung took the Myers Briggs personality test and discovered she was INF J, and was told she was one of less than one percent of the world who were dominated by introversion, intuition, and feeling Huh I should think than half of the millions of readers would technically be INF J But it is also a guide for extroverts who want to love introverts, as Tung s husband clearly does I liked that aspect of the story.I guess I would rate this roughly 3.5, as I am just meeting Tung and her work for the first time and am not yet annoyed by her Be nice, Dave Okay, I did like Tung s voice and story here, and the support role her

for an extended period of time, as so much not all of it of course, but definitely and in fact a sizeable majority of her depicted and described scenarios could have been taken almost entirely and verbatim from my own life story as while I am not in any way quite as intensely introverted as Debbie Tung obviously is, I am also not someone who is all that extroverted and therefore also generally prefer either working, thinking, being alone or one one one interaction and definitely just like Debbie despise huge groups of people, parties and other social gatherings, too much background noise and so on and so on And especially when in Quiet Girl in a Noisy World An Introvert s Story, Debbie points out her family s and also to a certain extent later her significant other s family s reactions and general attitudes to her preferences of reading a book alone in her room to going out and visiting, being a social butterfly, oh my, how often have I not heard similar critical words regarding my lack of friends, my preference of reading alone in my room to going to a movie or to some other kind of social event even if said social events would likely have been rowdy and filled with loud music and overindulgence of alcohol and or drugs.Of course though, Quiet Girl in a Noisy World An Introvert s Story is still first and foremost Debbie Tung s and not my personal story and I am therefore also not in any manner saying that she is I and I am she However, there certainly are enough similarities to be found in Quiet Girl in a Noisy World An Introvert s Story for me to say that yes, this perusal this reading and viewing experience has been a very much eye opening, heartening and both sweetly and sometimes painfully honest excursion into much of my own life and personality as well, although I do hope that Debbie Tung actually is appreciative of the fact that she is incredibly lucky to have found a partner, to have found a husband who is both extroverted and also understanding of her introversions, who seemingly always gets her but also often takes the social pressures off by playing extroverted defence so to speak as that is certainly not always the case and in fact, many introverts do end up going out with and or marrying fellow introverts, such as like in my case, where my partner is actually even introverted and shy, even not into people than I am, than I ever could be Highly recommended both for its storyline and for its black and white illustrations is Quiet Girl in a Noisy World An Introvert s Story, and while simply as artwork in and of itself, Debbie Tung s pictures are a bit too bland and colourless for my personal aesthetic tastes, the combination of text and images in Quiet Girl in a Noisy World An Introvert s Story does work extremely well and indeed, here is yet another contemporary graphic novel I have very much if not actually totally enjoyed, although it sure does seem that most of the graphic novels which tend to appeal to me are definitely often than not either autobiographical or at least potentially nostalgic in theme and content flag 21 likesLike see review View all 11 comments Jan 12, 2019 Antoinette

with you everywhere you go, even if you know you won t be able to read it These are all things that I could EASILY relate to Debbie later talks about taking the Myers Briggs personality test and discovering that she is INFJ which just so happens to also be my personality type There were just so many moments within this novel that made me think YES SAME ME TOO GIRL What I Didn t LikeI loved this entire graphic novel Seriously It was like it was made for me Overall, I clearly LOVED this graphic novel It is perfect for all introverts out there Even if your personality type isn t INFJ, but you consider yourself to be an introvert, I highly recommend this graphic novel flag 15 likesLike see review Mar 23, 2018 Kelli rated it really liked it Shelves graphic novels There is an unexpected

showing Tung s raw honesty and gift for engaging visuals communicate what it is like to feel so other in a world that is run by extroverts And that is a message I hope receives as broad an audience as

which I frequently do It s also refreshing to see someone speaking so openly about living as an introvert and how exhausted you feel in a social situation I love spending time alone but not all the time so I appreciate the balance that Tung addresses in her work I also want a career change but I don t think I could go freelance for a while yet but who knows what the future holds There were some
