Scott Pilgrim just turned 24, and things couldn't possibly be better! This means things are about to get infinitely worse! Suddenly, TWO of Ramona's evil ex-boyfriends are in town, and they're playing dirty. His band is in turmoil, and his own exes aren't making things any easier. And what's up with Ramona, anyway? She's been acting kinda weird ever since they moved in together! Scott's precious little life is coming back around to bite him in the butt, and it may not be pretty!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Worst Book in the Series Reason for Reading: Next in the series. This was the worst book in the series for me. It's Scott's 24th birthday and he has matured a bit like I wanted him to over the course of these books. At least he's no longer using girls and being a major jerk, though he is still a jerk. Ramona's behaviour is suddenly all out of character and she appears to just disappear. o..kay?... Anyone doing the math is not surprised to know that this book's boyfriend will have to be twins, otherwise how do we get 7 evil boyfriends out of 6 books; as any videogamer knows the last one is going to be reserved for the Boss. So no surprise there. The battle scene was very low key and seemed as if the author had actually gotten tired of the whole evil boyfriend plot himself! While fighting, this Japanese duo seemed to have much more fun dishing the dirt on Ramona to Scott than actually winning the fight. Not all characters appear in this volume and some only make cameo appearances; the book highly concentrates on Scott, Ramona and Kim. Scott has a rendezvous with Gideon, the last evil boyfriend, the Boss, the one behind all this madness, who has all the answers; by the volume's end. This sets up the final book but doesn't leave me excited in anyway. Though I've lost my get-go for this series, with only one more book to go till journey's end I will be reading the final volume soon.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Scott Pilgrim 5: They Depart Each Other They are together. They are in love. They are forever. If they can survive the prospect of forever. And with this part of the journey, we are about to enter Scott Pilgrim Volume 5 Vs. The Universe. As always, it is written and drawn by Bryan Lee O’Malley. Scott Pilgrim and Ramona Flowers are dating. Her Seven Evil Exe’s are after Scott. And the world keeps turning. In this latest dispatch from the evolution of Scott and Ramona, our couple are now living together, having breakfast together, and taking care of a cat together. Marriage is being whispered about by their friends. They are on the verge of entering into adulthood, with all the unknown dangers that encompasses. Scott knows not what he does, but is trying to figure it out. Ramona does know what it is happening, but is pulling an old Scott. She is becoming the irresponsible slacker in the emotions department. Any excuse to be angry, any reason to be mad, any way to hurt Scott and drive him away, must be tried. Eventhough the seeming alternative is the dreaded Evil Exe Gideon. She knows Gideon is a horrible, terrible, possessive man-child. She knows he is wrong. But the spectre that her damaged self esteem will somehow recover and she can be herself again is so tempting. Gideon holds her soul. Ramona does not know how to reclaim it. Scott has no idea how to help. They should be a happy couple. And Gideon should leave them alone and vanish. At this point, in a perfect world, we should be living in a two couple play. Real life fiction is constantly a part of Scott Pilgrim. Any one of us can see the daily drama that afflicts Scott and Ramona mirrored in our own life’s. This is not a cheap drama, but a painful human story with all the foibles of our favourites exposed all over. Even more so because of cell phones. The subtle disintegration, pieces chopped off bit by bit, from their relationship makes you fervently wish you could reach into the pages to soothe and comfort them. Maybe that is because whenever this kind of turmoil have occurred to people we know in our daily lives, our inert helplessness make us feel impotent. Thankfully Scott still has his mojo, kicking butt all in the name of Ramona. The first major battle here takes place in the background, while Ramona and Kim discuss life some distance away. The next major battle is less reality distorting, with Ramona and Kim playing deceiving roles in the conclusion. Methinks O’Malley is saving the main fireworks for the epic ending coming up next, and letting this one breathe on it’s own. Unlike the last Volume, this parcel of our trip ends with a sad note. The couple we have so routed for are on the brink. Gideon is now making his presence fully felt. But I have hope for true love. I hope you do too. And I can’t wait for the Sex Bob-omb reunion to happen. Scoopriches

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Go for It The artwork in this book is brilliant; it's an iconic and bold style suited perfectly to the story. The writing itself is more than worthy of the art. Adventure and irreverence in perfect balance. Buy = yes. It's worth it.
