I enjoyed this book very much. It isn't a highly philosophical or “deep” read but it was fun. The flow was fast and the writing easy to follow. This “light novel” was the origin of the manga and anime series…there are 10 light novels in the series.
The story is basically about a boy (nicknamed: Kyon) who meets an “anything but normal” girl named Haruhi Suzumiya. She is rude and always in a bad mood but for some reason Kyon keeps trying to talk to her (it doesn’t hurt that she is, according to Kyon, a “hottie”). From there a few more “unusual” characters are introduced and no one is really who/what they seem to be.

The author does a good job with the first person perspective and throws in a decent amount of humor.

I would not recommend this for teenagers under 15 years or so…there are some portions that border on being “adult oriented” (not graphic but they mention “grabbing breasts”, “big boobies”, etc). Typical anime stuff.

FUN. ( )

(Prologue) The question of how long someone believed in Santa Claus is a worthless topic that would never come up in idle conversation.
(Chapter 1) My first regret, upon successfully cruising through admission to a local public high school, was that the school was situated atop a rather sizable hill.
