About Baccano! Novel Volume 1 (Hardcover)
Baccano! Novel Volume 1 is written by Ryohgo Narita.
New York, 1931. The manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages is prohibited by law, but behind this prohibition, organized crime flourishes-so, too, do bank robbers, bootleggers, assassins, and homunculi. Some want money, some are chasing the secret to immortality, and others just want to have a really good time. You know what they say, though: You can't always get what you want.

Don't let the history scare you!
by Baa-kun -
If you're like me the description, with all its talk of history, may make you pass over this book (bringing back all the horrors of assigned English reading) but don't let that scare you! It's pretty awesome: it reads easy--no fancy language, the shift in perspective is done well, and if you're concerned about the alternate times don't be it isn't confusing--, the plot's interesting, and the characters are likeable (except for the villain). It starts off slow but the excitement builds with each switch of the point of view and by the end you won't want to put it down! And you'll want to know what happens next, like I do.
