"...Forget Professor Moriarty or Hannibal Lecter; Johan could crumble them both for breakfast. Good Dr. Tenma's epic quest to bring Johan to justice involves bodies galore, assassins, cross-dressing, Nazi experiments, the Czech secret service, Johan's beautiful twin sister, a vindictive ex-fiancee with a drinking problem, a Javert-like inspector who cannot forget anything and one of the creepiest children's books you'll ever read. Urasawa is a national treasure in Japan, and if you ain't afraid of picture books, you'll see why. For those of you who like your suspense red-hot but with a beautiful beating heart, Monster is for you. 'At last [the Monster] had found a name, but there was no longer anyone around to call him by it.'" -- Junot Diaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao, 2008 Pulitzer Prize winner

Vol. 1 introduces us to the Great Dr. Tenmna who is a really nice guy, and he takes his job as a doctor to heart. He shows just how difficult it is to try and do the right thing when everyone else is so focused on money and climbing the social ladder. He also shows that while doing the right thing may be so blatantly obvious, it might also be the completely wrong choice down the road. We join him on all the struggles that follow.
About the book itself, it arrived on time and in great condition other than some nicks on the cover.
