Summary

Bakemono, literally "altered thing", which translates as "monster". Monogatari, literally "thing narrated", which translates as "tale". Combined into a neologism by he of the reversible nom de plume, they yield BAKEMONOGATARI, the monster tale that kicked off a series whose anime adaptations have enjoyed international popularity and critical acclaim.

A self-described loser, Koyomi Araragi is struggling at a prep school that he should never have gotten into. He has all but quit caring, but as a senior, he faces the chilling scenario of not being able to graduate. It's time to cram, but the supernatural aberrations that keep on popping up in his provincial town won’t let him be.

Previously, our hero turned into a vampire and back, gained an acid-tongued girlfriend, and couldn't find his way home thanks to a lost child. In this second of three parts, which introduces Suruga Kanbaru and Nadeko Sengoku, he becomes embroiled in a case that riffs on a classic English story from 1902.

good

I enjoyed this. The anime is well-represented here. Araragi is voiced perfectly. My favorite part is the action scenes.

Memorable, Comedic, Surprisingly Emotional

I recommend this book to fans of the first, fans of humor, and fans of smart, witty characters.

Much like the first book, this one is split between short stories of Suruga Monkey and Nadeko Snake. These too have great twists and one even starts out by saying it’s a “bad end.” Heed that warning, though that’s what makes it so good when you see it. You were warned, yet you still get a gut punch to the feels.

And of course, the humor and all over the place tangential conversations are present and even better than ever. So, with that and excellent stories that pack a punch in small amounts, this is a wonderful book that I recommend.

Been loving these since 2016

Was always a fan of the Monogatari series and loved them since they first released Kizumonogatari. Am really glad they are doing more of them. Hope they do the whole novel series.

Bring us more of these to Audible!!

This is an exceptional story even if you have never seen the anime. Nisi Oisin is a master of dialogue and character development. There a layers of meaning in what the characters say throughout the series. The performance is very well done by the cast of narrators. Hopefully, we will see more of these works brought to Audible with the same level of care.
