Book Review - Spirited Away



Spirited Away is written by: Hayao Miyazaki, and is a fantasy japanese tale. The main character of this book are Chihiro, Haku, Yubaba, Kamaji, and Zeniba. Yubaba and Zeniba are also twin sisters, in the book, Yubaba has the tendency to steal visitors of Spirited Away's names. Where Zeniba is after the golden seal. The setting mostly takes place in the bath house but can be also shown in the boiler room (were Sen first asked for a job) and the steam room.  I think this book overall was very fast paced and exciting. This book definitely had you on the edge of your chair waiting to see what will happen next.

When Sen is driving to her new house they took a wrong turn and was pulled into this old ghost town, at the beginning her parent thought this to be an old rundown amusement park. Sen family were starving and when her parents got pulled away by the smell of fresh food, Sen wisely chose and decide to wait for her food. Her parents end up as pigs while she is swept away by a boy. She is told she might never make it out of this town again and that she must go persuade Kamaji to give her a job. She must find a way to remember her name or else she will be stuck there forever. This book is cool because you read bottom, top, left, and right. Also it is only pictures and captions, making it a graphic novel. I would give this book a rating of 5 out of 5 stars. I would also recommend this book to others (especially for thought who don't like to read as much but enjoys a good read).
