1.0 out of 5 stars Some of you must have read a different book to me, 8 Oct 2008
This review is from: Twenty Something (Paperback)
Quite how this book has managed such a high average rating is beyond me. The book is badly written, full of cheap gags that aren't even very funny. The worst thing about this book is that it is a complete rip-off of "Billy's Log", by either Doug or Eddie Brimson. Billy's Log was in diary form, concerning a young man unsure of his career path, not exactly Casanova when it comes to women, stumbles along in life but manages to turn his life around and end up happy and contented. The Brimson's aren't exactly known for the quality literature, but Hollingshead actually manages to write a book that is even worse than they managed. Let's hope he never writes another book this bad again.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best volume yet, 2 Sep 2005
This is the best book of the Y The Last Man series yet. The first 4 have been excellent, but this tops them all. It ties up loose ends (why has Yorrick survived the plauge? Who was that ninja he saw in volume 3?) and then leaves you with some new questions, such as: Can Hero be trusted? Can we believe Agent 355? If you've been a half hearted follower so far, this will make you a full on fan.
Anyone who says comics are for kids should read this and realise that they are wrong.
