This novel is a must have if you're a Final Fantasy VII fan.
The novel is comprised of short stories involving FFVII characters. It takes place either prior to FFVII: Advent Children (the sequel movie which released some time ago) or after it, depending on the story. Although the movie nor this novel are quite as good as the original game that released on the PSOne in 1997, both are still respectable in their own right. Again, this is a must-read if you love Final Fantasy VII. The characters are that endearing.
The quality of the stories themselves is a mixed bag. Episode Tifa is easily the
best one, depicting her and Cloud's relationship, as well as he insecurities and his lingering guilt leading up to the events of Advent Children. Episode Barret and Yuffie are also good. Nanaki's is so-so, with Shinra and Lifestream Black/White running a bit stale.
There isn't any art, other than on the cover. That makes it hard to grade. The cover does look nice.
Overall this is a nice little novel. If you loved FFVII, you MUST buy this book. If you haven't, go play the game on PSOne/PC/PS3/PS4. You're doing yourself a disservice by not.
