UNIQUE GRAPHICS THIRLLER! THE BOOK OF HUMAN INSECTS BY OSAMU TEZUKA...
THE BOOK OF HUMAN INSECTS by Osamu Tezuka is an unique graphic thriller. It is a Japanese manga comics book. It is the story of Toshiko Tomura who will stop at nothing to get what she wants. She has stolen,murdered,blackmailed, copied others works,but she has climbed the ladder to become an acclaimed stage actress and award-winning architect. I love the graphics(comic strip) style in this story. Although,the main character is a little over the top to me some will find her engaging.This is a haunting story of climbing to the top at all costs with little to no consequences. "The Book of Human Insects" is an intersting and unique story.It is the portrayal of a instead of "dog-eat-dog world" it is a "bug-eat-bug world",where some of the charcters would sell their souls to achieve their goals.It was a little disturbing to me.If you enjoy a seductive,disturbing,brutal,cynical culture you will enjoy "The Book Of Human Insects" also. This book was received for review from the publisher.Details can be found at Vertical and My Book Addiction Reviews
