Book Review: Stepping on Roses, Vol. 1

This Japanese comic book is so hilarious!  It's easy to read and extremely entertaining. For anyone who is looking for an hour of good laugh, or a brief distraction from all the stress of the day,  this is the book. It only takes about an hour to finish the whole book. But of course, this is only Volume 1 of a total of 9 Volumes.

Some of the scenes in the book are shockingly funny, eg. in a cramped run down studio apartment in the Meiji Period in Japan where there are babies and toddlers crying and running around,  with one of them shaking a poor old hen trying to get her to give an egg because he is hungry!!!

I will definitely read volume 2 to see how the poor, uneducated and illiterate heroine is coping in high society.
