Written for a young teenage audience, the fourth novel in the ever popular Haruhi Suzumiya series. This novel tackles two questions, What happens when you lose the pinaccle character? And, What happens when the protagonist wakes up to find everyone's forgotten him?
The scattered artwork drawn by Noizi Ito, is used sparingly throughout the novel as a means to emphasize specific plot-points. Drawn very simple and basic, it does its job. Having both been translated from the original japanese text, one would think this novel was adapted poorly, it isn't.
Written for the teenage audience in mind, author Nagaru Tanigawa rewards observant readers who have read the first 3 novels, by placing liberal hints from all of them. Without spoiling anything, there is a surprise guest appearance from some memorable characters.
This is a book only recommended for readers who have read the first 3 novels, seen the famous television series or even read the manga. Anyone purchasing this book as a starter into the world of Haruhi Suzumiya will be confused, but for everyone who's read the novels thus far, this is an extremely satisfying and very emotional adventure.
