First let me say that I loved the first book. I've read it like 5 times and I was so excited to get the next one... yet after reading I'm not so excited anymore. The book had potential to be good. Haruhi's antics never fail to amuse, and I love the characters, but lately Kyon's dry sarcasm has been getting a little whiny. No one is forcing you to be in the SOS Brigade. If you can't stand what Haruhi does, LEAVE! Honestly....
No, the main problem with this book is that the whole thing is basicall

While it didn't suck, I can't recommend it. I was wondering how they could sucessfully stretch such a weak plot for 200 pages and yeah...they couldn't. I still like Kyon (though I'm starting to think he really just needs to grow a pair) and Nagato (always saving everyone and not making a big fuss about it) but I'm officially tired of Asahina and Koizumi. Probably because Kyon wasted so many pages obsessing over Asahina and hating on Koizumi. I get it, he's like 17 but SHUT UP ALREADY! I think I' ...more

The making of a movie where everything come to life

This is the second book in the Haruhi Suzumiya series. This book is very hard to describe. The best way I can put is "second verse same as the first", but that really doesn't do it justice. This book is basically in essence the same as the previous book when the main character, Kyon is bossed around and bullied by the other main character, Haruhi, while the side characters all do their own weird alien, time traveler and esper things. Then it rai

So, the SOS Brigade is back, and this time Haruhi decides they should make a film for the school's cultural festival. The fact that she knows nothing about film-making doesn't deter her in the least -- that's what her favorite buttmonkey, Kyon, is for. She tells him what to shoot, and he damn well better shoot it, or else. As for what he shoots -- no surprise, it involves Mikuru in a variety of absurd costumes.

The film's plot (to the extent it has one, which it doesn't really) centers on a battl

Certainly less compelling than the rather-smart original, this is however an entertaining sequel that's not scared to both have fun with the premise and to throw a few ideas around of its own. The major problem with the book lies in how good the central premise is but how, ultimately, not a great deal is done with it. The eternally bored Haruhi decides to shoot a motion picture and because, for some reason, she is prone to altering the world around her according to her whims, strange events occu ...more
Years ago I tried to read this second book in the Haruhi Suzumiya series, but at the time I couldn't finish it. I thought it was dull because nothing happened, it is basically the efforts of the SOS Brigade to make a movie following the unreasonable orders of Haruhi. This time I knew what it was about and I was prepared to just read about the interactions of the characters (I was inspired by the movie, which was SO GOOD!). Mind you I was surprised by how much I liked it this time; compared to th ...more

There wasn't much of a plot in this one. It was mostly the SOS brigade shooting a movie and Haruhi causing crazy things to happen. I kind of want to stop reading the series because everything I've read so far was covered in the anime, but I read someone's review and they said that everything comes together as you get closer to the end of the series. Hmm. We'll see if I get that far. This series won't be a priority.

The first book was interesting enough, but this one was just...really bland. I'm amazed this series spawned such a phenomenon. This has to be a translation thing.

I enjoyed the pop culture references, though I think the translation team could have presented them better. I'm assuming they may not have gotten them all either.

Though this book is really short, it felt like it took ages to read. I just wasn't that interested. I think this is where I'll leave the series.

This was one of the funniest novels I’ve ever read. It’s a short book but took awhile to read as I had to stop at times I was laughing so hard. Long Live the SOS

Reread and re-laughed my through this novel again, is it the talking cat, is it the Data Entity is it Kyon, I don't know just love this series.
