This book is awful. It is badly written and very predictable. Don't waste your time or your money. There's much better books than this

I love this ring. I've always worn thumb rings with no problem until I was very ill and my weight plummeted. I couldn't get one that fitted properly. This really is adjustable and so fits well. Would recommend.

Lament of the Lamb Volume 1: v. 1
Lament of the Lamb Volume 1: v. 1
by Kei Toume
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Early symptoms are promising..., 11 May 2004
The basic surface concept behind 'Lament of the Lamb' is by no means new. From the idea of vampirism being a HIV-esque sexually transmitted disease, to the presentation of the mysterious and wraith like Chizuna (a character heavily influenced by 'Vampire Princess Miyu' in my opinion), the supernatural element to the story is text book. In other words, nothing mind blowingly original.
However, this story has one sailent redeeming element which increases the enjoyment factor dramatically. The relationships the main character, Kazuna, has with those around him are carefully sculpted and not in the least over dramatic or exagerated. While it may be fair to say that having him abandoned by his father at a young age is slightly cliched, the subject is handled cleverly and sensitively. Even more impressively, Kei Toume manages to convey Kazuna's isolation and resilience to accepting his new situation elegently, where as some would have let the character degenerate into whiney monolouges and over played this character atribute.
It is these features of the story which provide a reason for continuing with the series, due to the sense of forboding and intrigue established throughout. A genuinely suspenseful ending to the romantic sub plot of this book, coupled with a presumably deliberate lack of details about some characters, certainly warrants continuity in some form.
As for the art of the book, there are some positive and negative points also. The cover art is very well drawn and I particularly liked the choice of colours and inks as it suited the slightly dark and gritty tone of the whole story quite well. This fine standard extends itself to the character designs, which remain a strong point through out. However, by comparison backgrounds are sometimes sparse and lacking in detail, as if they had less time spent on them. Overall the art of the book is well suited and appropriate for the style of story.
In summary, despite the lack of any revolutionary elements in terms of horror, the story stands up very well. One may then ask why only three stars? The answer is this book really only lays the ground work for what could potentially be a very engaging story, it remains to be seen if the positive elements will be capitalised on. So if your looking for a beginning stages of a dark and angst ridden vampire teen story, I'd say you've just found your match.


Trigun: Deep Space Planet Future Gun Action!: v. 2
Trigun: Deep Space Planet Future Gun Action!: v. 2
by Yasuhiro Nightow
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars Peace and Love, 6 May 2004
The second volume in Trigun series is at first glance just more of what the first had to offer. However, on closer inspection the observent reader will notice how well the series has built over such a short space of time.
This book really begins to probe Vash's past and provide some information as to how this history relates to the story's present. At the same time, the manga incarnation of the series includes some cleverly subtle variants on some of its anime counterpart's story elements. Unfortunately, these changes have little to no impact on the plot (bar a obvious, dramatic change in the story as its stand's conclusion), though I would hope these elements will take on greater significance in the coming Trigun: Maximum.
Other small problems include the fact that the end of the book seems rushed and a little forced, possibly to complete the story to the point desired by the author. However, I should clarify that this manga is an impressive 350 pages, and is by no means light on plot as a whole.
Milly and Meryl fans may also be put off by the lack of the coverage they receive in this outing, though I would argue its a fine trade off for the plot advancement (and action) gained instead. On the subject of action, I have had friends complain that the action is such that it is difficult to follow exactly what is happening sometimes (one expressed particular concern over the cluttered artwork featured in the first major encounter of the book).
Despite these minor qualms, I can claim with confidence that if you persist with this book, you will surely be satisfied.
