Ghouls live among us, the same as normal people in every way—except their craving for human flesh.
Ken Kaneki is an ordinary college student until a violent encounter turns him into the first half-human half-ghoul hybrid. Trapped between two worlds, he must survive Ghoul turf wars, learn more about Ghoul society and master his new powers.
Many conflicts and incidents arise involving the clientele of the café Anteiku, where Ghouls gather. Yoshimura, the café's owner, is harboring suspicions about a certain someone. What sort of darkness will that person bring between those who hunt and those who are hunted? This book chronicles six all-new stories from the Tokyo Ghoul universe.
Tokyo Ghoul:Void was a very entertaining read. Each story had it’s own uniqueness which can stand out on their own. However, the real beauty of the stories, is that they are all connected to each other. For example, Morimine manages to make appearances in almost all of the stories and it is not just him. It’s this sense of the stories being connected by a certain case which show that the characters are not isolated from each other. Each person has their role to play in the grand scheme of things. I highly recommend this book if you are fan of Tokyo Ghoul and if
you are not I suggest you read it anyway and try to get into the series. Though mostly I mean read the manga then watch the anime(dear god) but I won’t rant about that again. I suppose one drawback of the interconnections of the story is, if you pay close attention to details, it can become a lot easier to know the direction of where each story is going MOST of the time. However, you need to pay attention to fine details to get some of the subtleties of the story and the various connections it makes. All and all I recommend giving this book a chance if you are looking for a short read to help occupy some free time.
