I found this book to be extremely difficult to read. A lot of the references to Japanese culture (such as the mushrooms) went sailing over my head. I think it was because of this that I couldn't fully understand and appreciate the complexity of this ...more

I found myself unable to connect with this story. Although I will be graduating highschool in a few days, I do not share the cringeworthy thoughts of the depressed main character. The summer after highschool is supposed to be fun, not awkward and dep ...more

This book was hilarious. Almost every situation was worth a good laugh. The book is completely wordless and does not have any other purpose but to entertain. I suggest this book to anyone whose brain needs a little break. It is easy to follow and req ...more

Wow I hated this book. In fact, this whole manga genre is definitely not for me. I find the plot of this book, and other manga to be very childish despite the content. So the plot is a girl comes from hell as a succubus to make a highschool boy fall ...more

I found this story to be absolutely hysterical! Despite his greatest efforts, the Canterville ghost just can't seem to scare anyone. No amount of blood on the floor or the rattling of chains will do the job. Frustration grows within the ghost as he f ...more

Hey, Wait... starts out to be a boring story about a typical summer vacation of two young boys. The two find activities and constantly fight boredom. The story of the two boys takes a dark twist, leaving the reader haunted. On the surface, one may fi ...more
