The summary says the class is haunted by a vengeful spirit but this wasn’t in the anime. Is there actually a vengeful spirit in the book? There is no vengeful spirit, simply supernatural phenomena that happen to cause misfortune. Any info greatly appreciated. I just finished the huge hardcover edition and can confirm that it is BOTH volumes in one. I was confused by this at …more Sorry no one ever answered this!
I was confused by this at first, too. See all 9 questions about Another…. Lists with This Book. Nov 15, Mizuki rated it liked it Shelves: I give Another 3 stars not because I don’t enjoy it, but merely because I had read far better novels by Yukito Ayatsuji than this one.
Ayatsuji is one of my most favorite Japanese detective novelists, I love his famous, imaginative ‘Mansions series’ to pieces. The Mansions series content about 10 books, each book is set within a particularly eccentrically designed mansion, and each of the mansion was built yukiito the same mad architect, who was supposed to be dead in a fire after he murdered his I give Another 3 stars not englissh I don’t enjoy it, but merely because I had read far better novels by Yukito Ayatsuji than this one.

This series is so rich with gloomy Gothic imaginary, so filled with plot twists and mysteries.

Therefore, comparing with Mr. I enjoy it, but do not love it. I will suggest you to read the manga version of Another instead, I enjoy the manga more than the original novel. My most favorite Yukito Ayatsuji’s detective novels for adult audience: Dark imaginary, clever plot twists anotyer a lot of deadly surprises, it’s my all time favorite.
Fairy tale crossovers murder mystery! What’s not to love? View all 12 comments. Though, I think part of it is that I already saw the anime before diving into the novel. Because of this, I already knew snother to expect. The anime yukifo probably scarier than the novel, too, since you get more on screen gruesome death in the anime than the novel. So in essence, this series is a horror mystery. I don’t want to say too much because it will spoil the fun.
I do want to say that the description is somewhat misleading. Yes, lo This was anotner. Yes, lots of death but you don’t really see them.

Yes, Sakakibara tries to figure out the curse. There is no vengeful spirit, though! If you’re expecting Poltergeist, you will be sorely disappointed.
I’m not sure if the description is a direct translation of the Japanese or if it’s just American mistake. Anyway, this is a horror mystery that is ingenious in the fact that you can’t actually solve the mystery once you actually know what the mystery is.
All clues are given before Sakakibara’s told anything, so it’s really easy to miss the important hints, even if they’re bolded. I only recognized them because I’m already well aware of what was going on. That’s how brilliantly the clues are “hidden. This makes sense because most of the characters, even main ones, tend to die off eng,ish quickly, and with such a large cast to murder, you kind of expect it.
You do learn a lot about Sakakibara and Misaki especially Misakibut some of the others If you want more character building and jump scares, go watch the anime. If you gukito more curse focus and creep factor, read the novel. It’s also worth noting that there are differences between the novel and anime, so don’t pass this up just because you’ve seen the anime.
ANOTHER (NOVEL) by Yukito Ayatsuji
Different characters die in different ways, so you’ll still be surprised, especially late in the novel. I really enjoyed this, so if you like creepy and you like mystery, I highly recommend it. If you like creepy Japaneses high school stories with characters that are pretty messed up and a main character is so naive at times you wonder how they survive the rest of the book? Then you’d like Another, but be warned Another is good, really good but it’s slow, really slow at first.
Nothing happens until page Literally nothing, the main character is in a new school with kids that act weird and that’s it until page Then all hell breaks lose. So if you’re a reader who’s all about act If you like creepy Japaneses high school stories with characters that are pretty messed up and a main character is so naive at times you wonder how they survive the rest of the book? So if you’re a reader who’s all about action and mayhem and doesn’t want to read a book that has pages of description and unanswered questions then this isn’t the book for you.
If your somebody who doesn’t mind a snail pace start and atmosphere building then give then I recommend it. Mar 03, Aiya rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is my second read of this story first time was the novel, second time was the manga. The two versions are slightly different, but both SO good! I don’t know actually know which one I like better!!! A story like this is so hard to review, as it would be a crime to tell you any details about the book before you read it.
It’s one of those stories you should go into completely blind and just let it sweep you up. It’s definitely a horror story, but not in a classical sense. Things start out jus This is my second read of this story first time was the novel, second time was the manga. Things start out just Yukito Ayatsuji slowly makes things just a little fuzzier, just a little more odd, playing up a growing sense of dread and wrongness throughout the pages.
Best of all, unlike too many horror novels, the climax pays off perfectly! Another is one of my personal favorites. I hope you love it too! May 27, heril azwan rated it really liked it. Akibat kepura-puraan mereka, orang yang tidak pernah wujud itu terus wujud setiap tahun dan mengakibatkan kemalangan dan kematian terhadap ahli kelas itu.
Nov 12, Mook Woramon rated it really liked it. Mar 21, Wendy rated it it was ok Shelves: I grabbed this galley because I was really intrigued by the cover image. I later learned incorrectly that this was a novel based on a manga, which in turn spawned an anime. I was very curious about the concept, wondering how such a visual format could be translated into a novel. I’m a very visual reader and also a fan of anime and manga, so I was easily able to visualize the characters and setting.
Unfortunately, that wasn’t good enough to make this book interesting to me. Lost in translation I grabbed this galley because I was really intrigued by the cover image. Lost in translation is an apt way to describe the experience – though I don’t merely mean the translation from Japanese to English. There are elements of culture and events that the non-Japanese person or anime fan will miss unless they spend a bit of time googling, but I didn’t find this enough of an issue to deter me.
I did, however, feel like the book dragged considerably and I grew increasingly frustrated with the main character, Koichi Sakakibara’s attempt to unravel the mystery of Mei Misaki and the strange curse of Class 3 at North Yomi school.
With a mother dead shortly after birth and a father away on business in India, Sakakibara has moved away from Tokyo to the little wnother of Yomiyama to stay with his mother’s family.
He is unable to start his third year at his new school due to a genetic lung illness that forces him to miss the first few weeks.
