Kage, a Japanese horror novel, was a solid 4 stars. The book centers around Megu-a young woman who is struggling to survive her mundane life. Megu has no friends, little money and works at a convenience store where her boss treats her like crap on a daily basis.
Things change for Megu when she saves a woman’s life-a woman who claims a “shadow” is trying to kill her. Strange things happen when this shadow is around and people die horrific deaths-what is this shadow and what does it want?

3.5 Stars

The author came to love Japanese horror stories and wrote one. It is not very bad at all.

A girl working at a convenience store where the owner treats her horribly; this may happen in Japan. It’s pretty realistic.

I did not agree with some of the actions of the protagonist, but it was okay. Scary? It is almost there, but not quite.

Not one of my favorite stories but twasn't bad. Some people might be able to keep up with the Japanese words, but they just through me, hard to follow with them for this here country boy. Maybe next time for English use English names, just a thought.
