[Book Review] Alive

What rating would you give it?
4 of 5 Stars

What did you think of the book?

This was a classic example of Japanese psychological (even horror-ish) based stories at their… well, okay… maybe not at their BEST, but still pretty darned good! I enjoyed pretty much every story in this collection, though some stood out more than others. I’ll say this much: not a fan of the art, but at least it was concise and flowed well from panel to panel. The storytelling in each story was so very weird, and yet it worked out so very well. Definitely a keeper here! 🙂

Would you recommend this book?

I would strongly recommend this book to manga lovers everywhere, but particularly to those who like a bit of psychological mindfuckery and classic Japanese weirdness to their stories.
