Book #88: The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya by Nagaru Tanigawa

It’s the end of the world as we know it – or is it?

Gorgeous, confident, and demanding, Haruhi Suzumiya is the leader of the SOS Brigade, a club comprised of her high school’s most extraordinary students. So when Haruhi is bored, it’s up to the SOS Brigade do something about it. In this sequel to the clever and uniquely witty The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, the SOS Brigade goes along with Haruhi’s scheme to make a movie for the school’s upcoming festival. But when filming begins, strange things start to happen, and Haruhi-who has no idea she’s a goddess with the ability to destroy the world-starts to show her devastating powers.

Could the end be near? Or is it just another day at high school? You never know when Haruhi is involved!

Join the frenzy and the fun with this second book in the phenomenal bestselling series that took the world by storm with over 4.5 million copies sold. 

Haruhi Suzumiya is probably one of my favorite animes. I love the character dynamics and the off the wall humor that goes on. As such, when I found out it was a series of light novels too, I went for it. I had read book one years ago (don’t ask me the number) and finally got around to reading book two just recently.

If you’ve seen the anime, book two follows one of the story arcs in season two fairly well. You see the SOS Brigade make their movie and how Haruhi is able to change the world, but still be oblivious that she has done that.

Honestly, I didn’t like it as much as the first book and really, I didn’t care for this story arc in the anime either. It’s not bad, it’s just not the best. I do have the other books though and am planning on reading them later on.

Final Rating: 3/5
