Synopsis

"For those who have courage…for those who do not fear death…open this book and turn the page!” goes the magazine in which this manhwa is serialized in. And for good reason. Peek into the horror within this particular book club. The president Kyungdo is a crazy maniac about books and while Eunsae tries to protect him from them, he is just so crazy about them. His fate in fact is connected to the legendary library of Alexandria, the greatest library that was ever destroyed, and Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood.

Background

Book Club was partially published in English as Reading Club by Udon Entertainment, who published the first volume on February 1, 2009.

Story:
An inundated mess. The first few chapters do a terrible job of setting things up, the middle is bargaining on the exposition to carry a wave, and the finale is such a mess of convoluted choices that I couldn't wait to finish this manhwa.

There's no real clear-cut main character, so when the complicating incident hits, you don't really have an idea who it happens to, therefore you don't really know it's importance. That's rather technical, but in reality, the problem becomes, "What's the complicating incident?" For the most part, I knew what was going on because I read the manhwa's description, but the story shouldn't read more

The manga revolves around a book, as well as the characters of Kyungdo and Eunsae who volunteer to help out the library and find the book individually. The book seems to kill anyone who reads it or leads them to commit suicide so that they may become "immortal"- a promise the book makes them it seems.

Eunsae finds the book first, however, seeing the horror within it chucks it away. Kyungdo also findfs the book later and instead becomes obsessed with it. Seeing this Eunsae tries to help Kyungdo and try and protect him from it. Whether this is because she has an attraction to him read more

There's more to this story than the description's letting on.

I honestly don't think this fits the "horror" genre. Yes, there are numerous scenes which can be considered scary but after reading a few chapters you'll realize that the story is revolving around a mystery and not so much focused on trying to scare its readers, which is supposed to be the main goal of a horror story. I'd also like to reitarte the other review when he/she said that it gave him a sort of "The ring/the grudge" feel because I also experienced that. I'm an avid fan of The Ring series and aside from read more
