Book Review: Library Wars

librarywars1

Author: Arikawa Hiro

Artist: Yumi Kiiro

Genre: YA (Manga)

In a Snapshot: In a age of extreme book censorship, the militant Library Force fights the Media Improvement Committee. Told and illustrated in Japanese graphic format and read backwards.

Why I picked it up and why I couldn’t put it down: This book series was recommended by a fabulous librarian on Twitter @bookgoil. Once I got the hang of reading backwards, it was a super quick and fun read.

Who will like this? Japanese manga and comic fans. Those who like melodramatic anime and a pride & prejudice love story between militants. Anyone who’d like to change things up and read a book backwards!
