The Embalmer

Oct 8, 2009

The Embalmer is a dark yet somehow delightful look at a young man put in a difficult position; he is an embalmer, an occupation frowned upon in Japan. We read as he handles various deaths and helps restore dignity back to the lost souls - not to mention a great deal of character development with he himself.

The Embalmer is a visual treat to look at, and overall is definitely worth a read. Filled with relatively unconnected stories and a few central characters that span them all, it's an easy read that will capture your attention. If dark elements of the dead interest you, definitely check this one out.
