Goodreads Summary: Napoleon Bonaparte (1769–1821) Leader of France during the first French Empire. Became known as a hero for his victories as a general and went on to seize absolute control of the state in a coup d’état. As emperor, Napoleon’s rule spanned almost all of Europe, but opposition to his rule grew widespread after his army suffered a bitter defeat by the cruel Russian winter, leading to his eventual seizure and exile. Even then, Napoleon managed to return to power for a time, only to be exiled once again. He died on Saint Helena Island.

My Thoughts

As I continue to read this series things continue to get weird. I am still not sure what exactly is going on but I do now there are a lot of secrets in Shiro and the clones lives. I can feel that these secrets are slowly going to be revealed and one by one they are going to continue to pull apart the strands of these characters lives. Shiro is already confused as to where he belongs in this clone school and the clones themselves are still trying to figure out where they belong in society all together. Both Shiro and the clones are young and confused. Shiro wishes someone would tell him who he is and a handful of clones wish people would stop telling them who they are. They already know who’s clone they are, who they are supposed to be, but some still have a hard time coming to terms with it.

In this Volume Joan is still hoping to change her fate but with that comes a risk she is all too willing to take. Like all the other volumes Shiro plays a big role but there is still a focus on specific clones. In this one Napoleon is focused on. He wants to help Joan with her mission.  All the other clones mentioned before are still present and they have one big surprise coming for them at their big expo. In volume three I got to see more/different sides to people and it wasn’t all good. This series continues to be strange to me at times but it is all part of what is going on (and is  going to happen). It continues to hold my interest though and I am looking forward to see what will happen in the future.

Title: Afterschool Charisma Vol. 4

Publication Date: October 18th 2011

Goodreads Summary: Florence Nightingale (1820– 1910) British nurse who made tremendous contributions to the modern nursing system. Received her nursing education in Germany before serving as chief nurse in a London hospital. Drafted into military service during the Crimean War, Nightingale strove to improve sanitation amid the wretched conditions of the military field hospital she managed. Also recognized as a pioneering statistician for her tireless compilation of statistical materials. During her military service, her beneficence and dedication to her hospital rounds at night earned her the nicknames “ the Lady with the Lamp” and “ the Angel of the Crimea.”

My Thoughts

Wow. So volume 3 ended with a lot of craziness at the end and you know those creepy Almighty Dolly stuffed toy sheep I mentioned in previous reviews (maybe not lol)? Still creepy but they did serve a purpose I wasn’t aware of. Shiro and the clones lives are beginning to come apart just like i said they would and things are getting pretty interesting. Those secrets I said would come out slowly are making there way out but a lot is still unanswered and I have a feeling it is going to take a long time to really figure everything out.  This volume had action and moments to really think about. It was also pretty sad. Nightingale took everything pretty hard in this volume and I can understand why. I think she really showed how much she cares about things and I felt bad for her. If anything Shiro and the Clones are more confused then ever.

My Thoughts

I can’t say much about this one except that it goes back to the past. Way before all the craziness in the last two volumes. Back to when Shiro was just a baby. This volume gives some important back story and things continue to get confusing and make sense all at the same time. It was interesting and enlightening to read.
