Description - The Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (light novel) by Nagaru Tanigawa

What if you woke up one morning, and everything changed?It's one week before Christmas Eve, and Haruhi and the S.O.S. Brigade (a club for her high school's strangest and most extraordinary students) are gearing up for holiday festivities. But just before the fun kicks off, Kyon, the only 'normal' member, wakes up in a weird alternate dimension, one where Haruhi attends another school entirely, Nagato the time traveling robot is just an ordinary human, and Mikuru (the cute girl of Kyon's dreams) doesn't even recognize him-in other words, S.O.S. Brigade never existed.The only clue Kyon can find is a bookmark left by the robot version of Nagato, which leads him on a quest back in time, where he interacts with the storyline from 'Bamboo Leaf Rhapsody', a short story from the previous Haruhi book, The Boredom of Haruhi Suzumiya. This fun and quirky holiday tale is reminiscent of A Christmas Carol and It's a Wonderful Life

Book Review: Disappearance of Haruhi Suzumiya (light novel) by Nagaru Tanigawa - Reviewed by (17 Jul 2011)

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.
