Berserk Volume 01 - Kentaro Miura

Since I have about a month till season 6 of Game of Thrones starts I decided I'd revist the other emotionally abusive, horrifically violent, series that I'm obsessed with. AND This series isn't yet finished either, maybe I'm a masochist.

Selling Your Soul for Fancy Bento Money
Sliver - Ira Levin
Berserk, Vol. 1 - Kentaro Miura

I sold what has to be less than 1/6th of my collection to my work place today and expected little.  1/6th of my collection translated into about 4.5 plastic crates, full mainly of the esoteric non fiction that I would never get to any way.

 

I got $75.

 

 

So I sold the vestigial parts of my collection that I have amassed over the years, like a sad hoarder that I am, and bought stuff to help me (hopefully) add to my luck with losing weight.  Like bento boxeeesss.

 

While I waited for my offer, I was reading more into the Levin book that I picked out during my last lunch break.  Color me surprised so far - I am not used to reading much, besides shorter fiction, that has such an adept use of just enough description so as to make you feel as though you can see the story as it unfolds.  I mean, am I the only one sick of pages upon pages of heaped on description so that the pace becomes bogged down and we're being forced to envision everything to the exact, minute, sometimes bullshit detail from the author's imagination?

 

I will say, the old timers of the thriller genre certainly know how to write cinematically. Oh, I also love the manga Beserk, or at least, the first one.  Guts gets shit done, something I can appreciate.

Hippos Go Berserk! by Sandra Boynton
Hippos Go Berserk - Sandra Boynton
  Fantastic counting book for the little ones. Not only do we count the hippos as they come to the party--whether to work or play but we also get to count the hippos as they leave the next morning. I love the drawings. What makes this outstanding is the counting upwards then counting backwards Wonderfully fun!

Berserk, Vol. 1
Berserk, Vol. 1 - Kentaro Miura Unsure about this. The art was okay, the story was weird... I dunno. I'm told I need to give at least the next volume a shot but compared to what I've been reading, it doesn't hold up.

Berserk, Vol. 12
Berserk, Vol. 12 - Kentaro Miura Things come to a head and Griffith and Guts's destiny is finally fulfilled in this volume that again focuses on gore and shock value over real character development and story. Griffith is faced with an internal dilemma over his choices in one of the chapters that is mildly intriguing, but dubious in terms of its revelatory nature. The child Griffith is forced to confront the reality of his past and the things he's done to achieve his nondescript "dream" (Is it really, truly, literally to simply have a kingdom of his own? That can't be all there is to it...) and make a choice whether to continue down that path or abandon it. The imagery of the choice and the bridge of bodies to the shining dream castle in the sky is a nice touch.
