Comments: Recently, I’ve been reading more and more mangas. I do not typically feature book reviews on mangas and I rarely post about them. Why? Because books in the young adult area are already countless and many. Add in manga, light novels, and other types of material into this blog would be over kill for me. It’s hard enough as it is for me to give attention to this site… I’m sorry – I know I’ve been neglecting this blog.
However, I would like to share those outside of young adult novels with you from time to time and this time it’s A Silent Voice by Yoshitoki Oima. A graphic novel or manga, which ever term you want to use… you should read. The graphic novel deals with bullying and it’s effects and consequences. It deals with moving on and accepting what’s happened. It’s heavy topic is covered really well and really moving. I won’t write a review here as it will sounds like other countless reviews already… Just know you need to read this.
If you need a sample… read it at Amazon. Click on the book cover… Of course, the pages they choose to sample are pretty powerful. But it’s why I enjoy this series. What are you doing? Read it now!
