I thought the books were great. They're very light reading and I found them hilarious. I felt somewhat sad actually getting most of the geeky references without having to resort to the glossary... but the laughs made up for that sad self-introspection. I think the best way of reviewing the book is to give an short excerpt. If you enjoy it, you should rush and buy the two books now.
While I was putting together an extremely taxing and annoying report, I got a phone call from Y-ko, who was supposed to be hanging out with her fujoshi friends.
Me: Yeah? What's u-
Y-ko: Bonjour!! Listen, listen, listen!!
C-could you turn down the volume?
Me: Sorry, could you tone it down? You're really hurting my ea-
Y-ko: Big news!! Oh, and when I greet you in Italian, I want an Italian response!!
Me: ...I'm sorry. Are you drunk? You're drunk, aren't you?
Plus, bonjour is French, not Italian.
Y-ko: So what? Anyways... I hear they're going to open a butler cafe!!
Me: That's incredible!! It's going to be a smash success.
Y-ko: I know, I know, I know!! Yes!! This weekend's plans are set!!
...Now you're getting ahead of yourself.
This place probably isn't even open for business yet.
Y-ko: Oh my goodness, it's going to be a festival! We're going to open that bottle of wine we've been saving, Sebas (ed. She calls him Sebas, short for Sebastian, because he reminds her of the butler from Kuroshitsuji/Black Butler).
Who are you calling Sebas?
Me: Come on! We don't even have a bottle of wine!
Y-ko: Yes we do! I'll go and pick one up!!
Me: That's not the same as "saving" a bottle...
Y-ko: Hey, what was it called? That one bottle that was really good... Oh right! I remember! Moe Moe Chandon?
What kind of name is that?
They might be able to sell a few bottles by riding that fact, but I certainly don't want to drink it.
Me: Nice try, but not quite. You're thinking of Moet & Chandon.
Y-ko: Oh, who cares? It's only one letter. Don't be so fussy, Sebas!!
I think I just got scolded!
And she called me Sebas again!
Me: ...Um, I'm sorry. Would you stop calling me Sebas?
Y-ko: Huh? Why?
The vaunted "why?" defense.
Me: Well, because my name is -
Y-ko: Oh, sorry. Did you want to be Shota?
I wasn't done with the sentence!
And why are those my only two choices?!
Plus, Shota isn't even a name!!
Y-ko: Yeah, of course... You're more the uke type.
Um... I'm sorry...
Is that how you've seen me all this time?
You can find some more excerpts here http://forums.animesuki.com/showthread.php?t=62208. There are two books total to buy (Volume 1 and Volume 2). The books are complete. There is also a shoujo manga series, which I haven't read.
