This was the last book of the series to read for the Book of the Month.... I was just going to read the first five volumes and go back to reading it later when all the volumes are out... but with THAT cliffhanger ending, there is NO possible way!! I immediately checked out the remaining 5 volumes that are currently out and will read them.

This has been my favorite volume so far. A lot of stuff was happening and it was exciting and interesting. I can't wait to see what happens in volume 6!

my personal reaction of the light novel spice and wolf by Isuna Hasekura, was the plot that was put into the story. I liked how a traveling merchant (Craft Lawrance) gets stuck with the God of the harvest (Holo) . And how they cooperate to make money buy selling items such as furrs. But the thing that I don't like about the story was when Lawrence and Holo had faced financial ruin, and they had to try to get enough money to pay back a debt Wich had a dead line was in two days. when I got to this ...more

Holo and Lawrence may have a way to get out of debt. Liking the series so far. Don't know what else to say that I haven't said already. Art is good? Check. Holo and Lawrence are adorable together? Check. Holo reminds me a little bit of Alice from Pandora Hearts, minus the tail and the ears. Anyway, good volume.

Thanks to the events of Book 4, Lawrence finds himself in quite a bit of debt. When none of his business connections pan out in his attempts to raise money through a series of small loans, Lawrence and Holo devise a plan with a big payoff ~ but the risk...

so in this episode Lawrence has to pay back his debt that he got swindled on and decides to smuggle gold in the sheep's stomach so nobody will be the wiser. I'm really enjoying this series and hope it stays fantastic.
Better than the cliffhanger part left on the last volume. Here Lawrence and Holo may have created a plan to get out of debt. They become closer and more determined throughout the book.
