have to judge the book from its cover and be able to read plots and feedback left from other people is very useful to make yourReviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 July 2016
I always look for something different to read every months to keep my mind exercised and to learn something new and different, on a wide range of subjects, every time I read a book. This is why I decided to read this book. First of all, I was intrigued by the title, I then read the plot to see if the title was matching my expectations. As a reader you, sometimes, have to judge the book from its cover and be able to read plots and feedback left from other people is very useful to make your choice. (Of course I try to avoid the risk of leave a book I started to read halfway through because is badly written or it is definitely not my cup of tea.) With regards to this particular book, I found it, overall, well written. The storyline is well explained and the characters are well developed. There are some unexpected twists here and there which make this book more involving. I particularly enjoyed the narrative part and the simplicity that the author has used to describe the environment that was surrounding the characters. I had such a nice time reading this book that, when I reached the words “the end”, I felt a bit sad to the thought that the story was finished and I had to “say goodbye” to those characters (I feel that when reading a book like this you ended up creating a particular bond with your favourite characters). To sum up, yes, I will definitely recommend this book to everyone who would like to secede from our reality and jump in this alternative one proposed by the author. Really enjoyed and I am now looking to read other books like this one. For all the above reasons I rated this book with 5 stars.

Bloodthirsty Honour CultureReviewed in Canada on 3 July 2021
I stopped reading after the fifth tale. Just couldn't take all the gore produced by the Japanese honour culture. He let you down in some way so you and all your friends must kill him no matter how long it takes. These are not fairy tales.
