review 1: I absolutely adore this series and this volume was no expection! It was funny, sweet, informative, adorable, lovely, ETC! It made me tear up, giggle, smile like an idiot and laugh !The new characters were adorable from the beginning. A bit crazy,but that wa totally their charm. T...

review 1: Best chapters of Vol.5 are, hands down, "A Day in the Life" and "Fever". The first one is about Amir and Karluk (who has to be one of mmy favorite couples in a manga, they are impossible not to love!) and the second one is about Karluk´s mother and her husband.The preparations fo...

review 1: In v.2 we see the conclusion? of the clan feud that began in v.1 as well as the departure of the participant anthropologist, Mr. Smith. But really those things weren't what made the story for me... Bride's Story really makes excellent women's lit and the stories about bread makin...
A Bride's Story 03 (2011)

review 1: The focus in this volume switches to Smith-san's adventures as he travels to Ankhara, which lessens the interest for those who are mostly here for Amir and Karkut (guilty as charged!) But it remains a lovely and delicate exploration of love, culture, and family--I especially like...

review 1: Ihan viihdyttävä (nuorten) aikuisten epookkidraama, jonka kolme viimeistä osaa (8-10) ovat oikeastaan lisäosia, joissa keskitytään päähenkilöiden sijaan pikemminkin sivuhenkilöiden tarinoihin. Yhtäkaikki melko hyvä tarina hiukan hidasta alkua lukuun ottamatta. Sarjassa seurataan ...

review 1: I can't say enough good things about this series. Mori's art is absolutely lush and breathtaking; it is a visual feast. This is the series that made me take up needlecrafting (due to a chapter later on in the series). Amir is an amazing woman, and her new family and new life is f...

review 1: The newest set of brides did not draw me in as fast as the last two. BUT the final two chapters in this book that were focused on them were adorable. When they both think about how they feel bad for the other sister because they got the better brother. Dawww I am really cheering...

review 1: Bride's Story v.4 is incredibly cute! While Smith (a linguist?) is detained pretending to be a doctor for the inhabitants of an entire region of Asia, the story focuses on the twins, Laila and Leily, as they go about looking for husbands. In a seaside town, these adorable twins g...

review 1: Of all the things I did not expect from a Mori story, this volume has a fight scene. Several fight scenes, in fact, as the family of the young bride tries to reclaim her. Mori does a good job building the tension, although I found some transitions in the action a bit muddled.Th...

review 1: I'm so glad that I continued reading this series! I love how Amir's character is adjusting to her new life and connecting with those around her. In this volume, tensions with Amir's former clan increase greatly, cultural elements and activities are highlighted, and Mr. Smith's ...

review 1: Another well-researched and fascinating glimpse into the lives of young brides in Turkmenistan. This volume is a continuation of the story from the first volume, featuring the same bride, Amir. She meets a new friend Pariya, a younger girl whose parents are having trouble marryin...

review 1: This volume continues where volume 1 ends. The focus is still on Amir (the 20 year old titular bride - at least for the first two volumes) and Karluk her younger husband by 12 years. Again as I said in my review for one: the setting is rare to see in manga, the art esp. in the ...

review 1: The story continues! The main source of drama here is that the girl Amira's tribe of origin sent to another rival tribe to seal an alliance has died (under suspicious circumstances, as it turns out) and her brother and uncle are sent to fetch her away from Karluk's tribe and diss...

review 1: A shift in the plot, as Mori turns from the young couple that was the focus of the first two books to Mr. Smith --- a European who has been staying with the family and now moves on. I was a little disappointed in the change, but we get more interesting glimpses into Silk Road li...

review 1: I have been waiting a month to read this book, after I finished the last one, so I'm very glad to get my hands on it today. This is probably one of the best ones yet, as so much story happens here (figures that it would in the last volume of the actual Emma story). In this volume...

review 1: A Bride’s Story is a lush, historical graphic novel with beautiful, detailed art. I admit, when I first read the synopsis, I thought, “Oh no, this might be awkward,” regarding the ages of Amir and Karluk, but they both have a sense of maturity to their characters –especially Kar...

review 1: It's a little uneven in parts due to the nature of the book ("Anything and Something" is a pretty accurate description), but Mori's humor is there throughout to make the rougher transitions easier to swallow. The short stories are a lot of fun, and best of all, there is plenty of...
