Even after watching the anime several times, I was at the edge of my seat for practically the entire books length; its that good. In volume 3, the relationship between Lawrence and Holo grows immensely, and we begin to understand more about Holo’s past. The story is full of economics, romance, additional characters, and a sense that leaves the reader completely fulfilled and eager to read the next volume. So far, the "Spice and Wolf" light novel series has improved exponentially; Isuna Hasekura has succeeded in making each volume better than the previous, and with 14 more volumes to go, I expect it to get even better.
To say I’m obsessed with Spice and Wolf is an understatement; I read this book cover to cover in less than 48 hours, all 249 pages of it. If I keep this up, my grades in my engineering classes will begin to suffer. As a matter of fact, I have a calculus test tomorrow. . . Sigh.
By previous statement, what I mean is that volume three gave a sense of urgency and fast-pace, but this time around the story goes at a much slower pace. I believe this is more due to the fact that Holo and Lawrence are getting accustomed to their new understanding of each other's feelings.
The story begins with Lawrence and Holo out on the road travelling to their next destination. Diana from volume 3 has mentioned there was abbot who collected pagan legends from all over the world, and this would be the person they seek out here in volume 4 to find out more about the town of Yoitsu (Holo's home). They arrive in the small town of Tereo to find out more information as to the whereabouts of the abbey, but they are soon confronted with yet another issue that only serves to hold back any progress of Holo finding out what happened to Yoitsu. Will Lawrence and Holo once again outwit their opponent(s), or will fate finally catch up with them?
This volume also confronts an issue that has worried Lawrence since the ending of volume one. One that Lawrence fears the most about facing on his travels with Holo. You'll have to pick up this volume to find out what happens!
This volume (5th) is no exception, where it covers Lawrence and Horo once again involved in a very risky business affair. It's certainly worth a read, especially for anime fans. As for translation quality, aside from a few minor hiccups, the quality is both good and consistent. Yen Press has done a good job with bringing this series over to the West so far, and I hope that it continues to do so.
My only real complaint here is pretty much not important, but I'll mention it anyways. I have a tablet that I'm accustomed to reading books on, so having a digital copy to this light novel would have been fantastic. Perhaps Yen Press could bundle a digital copy with the physical copy? It would be much more convenient for somebody like me, who carries around most of his book library on a tablet.
Now I'm eagerly awaiting the 6th volume, which will be the 1st light novel volume that will truly have non-anime material that continues the main storyline.
