Simplicity can sometimes produce the best results, and that is especially true for this light novel.

People who have heard of Spice and Wolf have probably seen the anime and may not even know it was based off a light novel or have not given thought to read the light novel from which the story originated. However, this novel is a very enjoyable read and can easily get people engrossed in the story.

When I first bought this novel I did it because I really wanted to know what happened next after the end of the anime series. I really enjoyed the series and the way ...

If you have watched the anime adaptation and are yearning for more of Holo's simple yet intricate and extremely charming character then i recommend reading this novel.
Although there are slight discrepancies throughout the novel and anime, not too much stands out. The novel exhibits the themes of the loneliness in a much more apparent and clear representation through the emotions that are being disclosed to the readers.
Overall a very good read for either those who are new to the series or have read or watched either manga or anime adaptations and are looking for a wonderfully written work of art which in my ...

Since a 3rd season is as likely as me seeing a human walk on Mars I decided to read the novel. I do not regret this choice but it was a hard series to get through at points.

Now I'll make this clear, I DID NOT read the yen press version. If I did, maybe my enjoyment would have been higher but I sailed the seas for it instead.

The story is what you'd expect having watched the anime. Holo and Kraft travel, make deals, get screwed, get unscrewed and move along. All in the hopes of Kraft starting his own shop and Holo going ...

I could go on and on about what makes this novel so amazing but I'll try to keep it short and sweet, if that's even possible!
This novel is among my favorite pieces of literature and I'm really glad I found it.

Ookami to Koushinryou is basically a novel that is mostly directed at adults, however I'm not saying that younger people can't enjoy it. It's just that the themes it deals with, such as loneliness, trustworthiness, realizing how your life is shaping itself, will appeal a lot more to people approaching Lawrence's age (~25ish), at least in my opinion. Throughout the novel, we watch how gradually ...

Ookami to Koshinryo, or also known as Spice & Wolf in English, is a light novel series written by Isuna Hasekura and illustrated by Jyuu Ayakura. The English translation is in the order of Alphabet, which makes it more natural to pronounce than Wolf & Spice, but certainly when bring the work into discussion, we have to follow the original arrangement to make the most out of it.


Wolf, or scientifically Canis iupus, is a widely-known species, mostly because they are the ancestors of many kinds of domestic dogs. They are known as the kind of animal being able of patience and scheming while pursuing their ...

// It is not Harem/romcom just pure Romance // (Just for you guys who are annoyed with the false tags on this site ;) (chapters can be ignored I did read 20 volumes)

Sometimes when you're really bored and search for certain tags(romance) you stumble about things you never would've watched/read years ago.

Spice and wolf is such a thing. I don't get the whole furry thing and while I was way younger I would just flag this as one of it. A attention seeking helpless shounen female which clings to the mc just for story progress. This is kinda what I got out of the description.

I ...

First I have to state that I read the Yen Press releases and the original Japanese ones. I am not a huge romance reader but this light novel changed my view on life, money and relationship. The story slowly unravels how the economic system effects towns and kingdoms, how gods play role in affecting the harvest, weather and culture and how trust is important in not only developing healthy relationship with friends and companions but also trading partners. The story is written really beautifully and you should definitely read it.
The only bad thing I could say about it is the typos Yen Press did ...

I've gotta say, this book is really good. This book is super well written, the characters feel really real and it takes you on a fun adventure. Of course, you can't expect to read the in a week and then just forgot about it later. Each chapter of this book is 50-100 pages long with some chapters being around 150 pages long so I wouldn't recommend this if you just want a quick story to read. However, this book is a masterpiece.

Story (10/10) - I mean, I'm halfway through the series after reading it in my spare time for about 4 months. I have yet ...
