    1. What a beautiful innocent soul is Yoss. A tale of adventure, greed, the journey to manhood and how to keep your values intact. I loved this story, I'm surprised I haven't come across Odo Hirsch before but now that I have, I'm happy.

    2. Surprisingly lacklustre. As Odo Hirsch was one of my favourite YA fiction authors from childhood, perhaps it was merely my high expectations that made this book flop. Hirsch used twenty different moments to define each character when one would have sufficed, twenty different examples to prove each point he had to make when, again, one could have sufficed. Whoever was responsible for editing this piece of work seems to be as efficient as the bumbling blue doctor. Yoss was able to heal himself ind [...]

    3. I feel like I learned something very important from reading this book, yet I have no idea what it is. I guess that's much like Yoss himself. An innocent in a sea of corruption and greed pretty much sums up Yoss's character. He was compelling because everyone surrounding him said he was.

    4. I don't know what it was about this bok, but there were certain things (character names, settings, themes etc) that seemed very familiar, while a lot of the action seemed new. Maybe there are a lot of similarities to Slaughterboy (which I know was written more recently, but I read it first). This is a great book about the loss of innocence and a youth coming of age. The world is well realised, the era a little vague, the messages strong.

    5. 3.5 starsAt times whimsical, at times disturbing, Yoss goes down as yet another example of fine writing by the underrated Odo Hirsch. Peppered with universal lessons and truths, Yoss is a sprawling medieval masterpiece worth looking into, especially if your were a fan of Hirsh's Slaughterboy, and Tracy Chevalier's The Lady and the Unicorn.

    6. No thank you.This book is all about blood, gory, and a man's struggle away from his village. It was a book that kept on dragging with no apparent end in sight. Possibly I wasn't the reader that Hirsch was trying to reach but none the less I was not impressed.

    7. What an insight into human nature!!! This was a refreshing change to the usual pulp fiction I often fly through! Yoss is my new hero
