Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8 Up—Haruhi is the leader of the SOS Brigade, a club at a Japanese high school. This sequel to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (Little, Brown, 2009) picks up after three of the five members reveal themselves to be the people with supernatural ability that she is looking for. Kyon narrates, and his witty observations of the ever-demanding Haruhi make for an entertaining read. His characterizations of the other members of the brigade—Nagato the alien, Asahina the time traveler, and Koizumi the esper—are humorous and intriguing. When Haruhi decides she wants to make a movie for the upcoming school cultural festival, Kyon and the other members of the brigade have no choice but to follow her. He says, "Haruhi believes her values and judgments to be absolute. And it's certain that she has no idea that other people, actually most people, may think or feel differently." The sarcastic narrative, the brilliant characterizations, the captivating story line, and the sporadic manga-type illustrations showcase why this series is so popular in its native Japan.—Julianna M. Helt, Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, PA
VOYA - Laura Lehner
The SOS Brigade is back in action in this sequel to The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya (Little, Brown, 2009/VOYA June 2009). After saving the world with a kiss in the first volume, Kyon now has his hands full keeping Haruhi happy and stable, lest her powers—of which she is still unaware—destroy reality as it is known. The usual gang of supernatural beings disguised as high school students are on hand to help Kyon preserve Haruhi's ignorance of the influence that her moods and whims have on the very existence of the universe. Haruhi's plan to contribute to the school's cultural festival is to submit a homemade movie starring the stunning Mikuru Asahina as a magical time-traveler. What Haruhi does not know is that Mikuru is a time-traveler, here to save the future by keeping Haruhi in check. As filming of the movie proceeds, the lines between reality and fiction are blurred, dangerous things start to happen, and Kyon once again saves the day by convincing Haruhi that it is all make-believe. Kyon is the glue that holds this adventure together, and he is in prime form as the wisecracking sidekick/servant to the unstoppable Haruhi. The same trouble points afflict the plot as in the first volume—mainly the relentless bullying and sexual harassment—but the same things work as well. Kyon is an engaging narrator and mix of SF and philosophy make it a rewarding read. Fans of the series will be happy to know that the third volume is not far behind. Reviewer: Laura Lehner

    Excelent edition, not the best novel by Tanigawa

    I must say that I really love this edition, if you want to collect Haruhi's books, I must recommend the hardcover first edition. The cover is the original one from Japanese version and the illustrations are the originals so it isa great collection itemfor Haruhi's fans.

    However, I must say that this is not Tanigawa's best work, still it is a good short novel, but it pales compared with the first or the fourth novel. Still it is a fun story and I recommend to get this book.

    more from this reviewer

    A Satisfying Continuation

    There are certainly aspects of this book that I really like. The characters remain as delightfully quirky and unique as ever. The philosophical and scientific discussions are well-written enough to be understood by the laymen, the opening scene is enjoyable, and I always seemed to get a kick out of the different songs Haruhi is observed humming as she leaves for the day. However, the general plot of the SOS Brigade making a movie while trying to covertly suppress Haruhi's world-altering powers failed to thrill me. In short, this book is little more than the sum of its individual parts. If you didn't like the first one, this one won't change your mind about the series.

    I Also Recommend:

    A blend of comedy and fantasy

    From the sensational 'Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya' comes the second novel 'The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya.' The story is brilliant, having a fleshed out plot and interesting characters, even adding some great comedy. The writing is fantastic too, flawlessly describing the events happening throughout the story. I highly recommend this book.
