Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter by Richard Parks
In an ancient Japan where the incursions of gods, ghosts, and demons into the living world is an everyday event, an impoverished nobleman named Yamada no Goji makes his living as a demon hunter for hire.
I don’t know why I’m doing this to myself. The average score for Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter is 3.14 stars. Not so bad, right? And yet I have a bad feeling about it. I really do. Is it all just in my head?
Why am I doing this again? Oh yeah, it’s a free ebook. And the cover is nice. Oh well..
As you can see I wasn’t even able to finish it. Worldbuilding, where is the worldbuilding? And the characters are idiotic. And the story is boring and clichéd. Richard Parks didn’t even do his homework on Japanese culture properly.
Look at this grey box. Look at it carefully. What do you see? A grey box. This is exactly what Yamada Monogatari: Demon Hunter means to me.
