Fixed it! Review written on May 20, I was at the library when suddenly my cousin pulled out Half World and offered it to me, simply because of the artwork. Instantly, my thought: Oooh, this looks like a scene from Spirited Away yes, I even made this picture : Yup, close enough. Checked it out of the library.

Went home and started right away. Day 1 May 18, -Started Day 2 May 19, -Continued; read with an empty stomach Day 3 May 20, -Finished; read with an empty stomach; writing this review. Could it be my stomach affecting my mood while reading? I want to believe yes. But my head tells me Her mother is ill. They live in poverty. For fourteen years of her life, she barely knows anything about her father. Then one day her mother disappears.

A man named Mr. Glueskin threatens her with her mother, telling her to come to Half World. It turns out that her parents are from Half World. However, her mother owes Mr. Glueskin a bargain. Thus, Melanie must enter Half World and save her mother. The Three Realms somehow become disconnected from each other, so the balance cycle is broken. In Half World, things are in chaos because of the broken balance.

People cannot relieve their suffers and cannot move onto the Realm of Spirit. They can never die and nothing can be born. Well, there are people that actually broke out of the curse and form a civilization in Half World. Now, what a unique storyline we have here. Melanie is the protagonist, but I have no freaking way in connecting with her thoughts!

It drives me insane. In the beginning, it seems that she is a calm girl who truly loves her mother that is why she wants to finish school and quickly gets a job to help her mother with the burden. I cannot understand how her mind works. She is an impatient person and somewhat ungrateful It has the word "Half World" there About her?

Why had her mother kept this the paper? The other characters are okay; not too much is explored with them. So since the character development failed me.. The prologues are great! But the way the author builds the plot I find myself not engaged for the most parts. The events that occurred the Half World seems to have happened in, like, a day. The plot has so so so so much potential!

Half World can be described as: A place of dark shadows, jumbled silhouettes of cities and jungles, forests and villages. The light that managed to penetrate the overwhelming layer of clouds created a shadowy world, absent of colors and vibrancy. It looked like early evening on a completely overcast today. The city portions of the vista looked odd. Castle turrets beside skyscrapers, pagodas and apartment blocks, tents and stone ruins, warehouse stores and freeways It looked like every city and period in time were mashed together again, so so so so much potential.

Half World

The opening scenes introduce us to a downtrodden protagonist who seems unlikely to become her own hero. Hiromi Goto. Photo: Kiely Ramos Melanie is a teenager who has been left to scrape together small bits of comfort while her ailing, disinterested mother spends most of her days wasting away in a daze.

Half World by Hiromi Goto, illustrated by Jillian Tamaki

But life is tough at my bookstore — often without a staff member to love and recommend it, a book will die an undeserved death. These realms are meant to be interconnected — we pass through Flesh to Spirit, or to Half Life if we must cleanse ourselves of something. After a stretch in Half World we find release as a spirit; when our energy begins to flag we are reborn as flesh. But somehow these realms have become disjointed: the spirit realm is drifting away as spirits forget their connection to flesh and slowly fade from existence; the flesh world is filled with dismay and discord without the release provided by the other two worlds; and those in half life are trapped, repeating their trauma and reliving their nightmares for an eternity. In comes Melanie Tamaki, an unhappy fourteen-year-old who has been neglected by her mother and outcast by her peers.
