Primul lucru pe care îl vei percepe şi care te va atrage citind Kieli este atmosfera aparte. Poate pentru că acţiunea se desfăşoară pe o planetă îndepărtată, îmtr-o lume uşor distopică, având trenuri cu aburi şi vapoare pe oceane de nisip; o planetă cu oameni simpli, dominaţi de clerici. Sau poate pentru că personajele principale sunt o fată care poate vedea spirite, dar nu interacţionează bine cu ceilalţi oameni din cauza asta; un soldat nemuritor cu probleme de atitudine; şi un radio posedat de spiritul unui caporal care a murit într-un război demult uitat. Sau poate, pur şi simplu, pentru că nu ai mai citit niciodată ceva atât de neobişnuit.... Read More | Share it now!
About a quarter into this book, I thought: ‘Wow. What an extraordinary read.’
Halfway through, it became quite repetitive.
After 3/4 out of it, I found it rather boring.
In the end, I was definitely disappointed.... Read More | Share it now!
** spoiler alert ** I started reading “The picture of Dorian Gray” after receiving several recommendations from my friends. The synopsis seemed interesting, it was categorized as one of the greatest classics ever, I was sure I would enjoy it. But boy, was I wrong.... Read More | Share it now!
** spoiler alert ** In the beginning, I had rated it three stars, but upon further thought, I realized that that was a bit too much. While the book was cute, silly and lighthearted, I had three main problems with it.... Read More | Share it now!
This has to be one of the worst mystery novels I’ve read so far. In fact, I’m not even sure if it’s supposed to be ‘mystery’. More like ‘character discovers x clue, reader is not told what it actually contains, character suddenly reveals it much later on in a really dramatic, Scooby-Doo fashion’. And this happened throughout all the book.... Read More | Share it now!
Fruits Basket is a show that might certainly sound interesting the moment you check the synopsis. People turning into the Chinese zodiac animals, dark and mysterious secrets surrounding them, cute, clueless main heroine – isn’t that a great premise for a shoujo series? But only as long as it’s executed accordingly.... Read More | Share it now!
Higurashi is a really confusing, complex and difficult to explain anime. Some may view it as belonging to the horror or psychological genre; some may find it as a really weird harem series containing crazy, killer lolis; others may consider it a failure since it doesn’t seem to belong to any of the afore-mentioned genres. Considering how much amount Higurashi incorporates, all views are understandable; this certainly isn’t a series that’s easy to comprehend by everyone. Higurashi is a mixture of mystery, blood, humor, romance and especially nice moral stories; but above all – Higurashi should be perceived as a really challenging logic problem....

A few things before reading this review:
-yes, I am one of those who have played the sound novel before watching the anime;
-no, I will not make this an essay of comparison between the two, nor will I praise the novel over the anime; however, it is inevitable that certain comparisons will indeed appear, in order to explain the flaws of the anime;
-this review might seem a bit unfriendly to someone who has no clue what Umineko is about. In fact, it’s much more addressed to those who have partially or completely watched the anime/read the manga/played the game.... Read More | Share it now!
