Boys Over Flowers: Hana Yori Dango, Vol. 1 by Yōko KamioSo I find that I am that one person with sense in about fifty who hated this book with a passion (ok I may be exaggerating a little). Disclaimer this is my opinion, and nothing more. So lets find out why I wanted burn my eyes after reading this.
1)The female lead is annoying, whiny, and increadibly stupid, which is perhaps the reason why nothing she does is right and shes bullied so much.
2)The female lead is obsessed with a guy who doesnt like her back (and isnt even worth it) and for most of the story he is pretty cold to her. And this guy isnt even the one who ends up with her in the end. The one she ends up with is even worse surprisingly.
3)IT IS SO FRICKEN LONG!!! So of course this means that EVERYTHING is dragged on for quite a bit.
4)I dont understand why the author makes money such a big deal, and exagerates the whole high-class and low-class thing. (In my opinion the female lead seriously lacks class, but I dont think that it has anything to do with money).
5)The female lead has no redeeming qualities to speak of. Shes stubborn, but in a way thats stupid and pointless, shes average in looks, intelligence (which could be fine if I actually liked her, but I don’t), is said to be kind but actually is kind of a bitch, and her emotional strength is really non-existent and is just her being stuborn,and she gets worked up over nothing. Also, shes extremely shallow and lacks common sense. Its just bad writing to go with the cliche of the traditional (and overdone) female character, that is average, somewhat ‘kind’, stupid to a fault, suposedly strong, and somehow has two or more people involved in a love triangle with her.
6)All of the situations are extremely exagerated to a point where its simply ridiculous and that alone takes away from whatever humour it had in the first place. For example, the bullying going on at her school (of course the female lead is bullied -__-). It is so unrealistic to have a girl tied to a moving vechicle. Or how rich these people are. It seems like the whole school is filled to the brim with multi-billionares, considering the number of mansions, private jets, cars, etc. these people have.
7)Ah, and now we move onto the humor. Just wait a minute and let me use my microscope to find it. Enough said.
8)F-4, which, may I remind you,stands for FLOWER 4. Honestly, the only possible explanation for choosing THAT name is that they are all in the closet, and if the author comes up with ANOTHER poorly written manga about the secret love between two members of the Flower Four, I would not bat an eye. Hey it might even be better than this garbage
9)No redeeming points are in this manga. No substantial and meaningful plot or characters, theres over-the-top drama, and not to mention the art is ugly.
10)I cried at the end. Not because it was emotional nor was I upset it was finished, but because I was so happy it was done and I could release my frustration over wasting my time by writing numerous bad reviews about it. It takes a lot to make me cry.
By now I just know that numerous fans of this book are cursing me to my grave and planning to come to my house in the middle of the night to shoot a C-rated horrot film(if they bothered to finish or even read my reveiw).
So a warning to any potential readers: Prepare for a manga with excessive amounts of stupidity and cheeseiness laced into every page.

Jetzt bewerten Jetzt bewerten. The Insects has been the standard textbook in the field since the first edition published over forty years ago. Building on the strengths of Chapman's original text, this long-awaited 5th edition has been revised and expanded by a team of eminent insect physiologists, bringing it fully up-to-date for the molecular era. The chapters retain the successful structure of the earlier editions, focusing on particular functional systems rather than taxonomic groups and making it easy for students to delve into topics without extensive knowledge of taxonomy. The focus is on form and function, bringing …mehr.
Outlines of Entomology pp Cite as. The exocuticle is absent or reduced in the more flexible regions of the integument, and may be entirely absent from insects with a soft, thin cuticle. The endocuticle , which is usually the thickest layer, also contains chitin and proteins, but the latter are not tanned and this part of the cuticle is therefore soft and flexible.

He wrote a landmark textbook on the anatomy and physiology of insects, The Insects- Structure and Function , several editions of which have been published. Chapman was born in London and received a bachelor's degree in science from Queen Mary College , London in After a Ph. In he returned to Birkbeck to teach zoology. In he published The Insects- Structure and Function which was to go into numerous editions.

Lecture 10: Insect Circulatory system
The Insects takes a detailed look at how insects function as animals. This textbook brings together basic anatomy and physiology and relates them to behavior. Coverage emphasizes the roles of different functional systems in the context of the whole organism using studies of many different species as examples. Unlike other texts, The Insects does not dwell on classification, opting instead to take an in-depth look at physiology, providing any biologist with a better basic understanding of how insects work. A long-awaited update of a well established standard text and respected reference work for students and researchers in zoology, entomology and physiology, this fourth edition has been rewritten throughout, while retaining the successful structure of the earlier editions.
