I long time ago I bought these 2 novels (english version). I had to suffer through a god like cringe moment when I asked bookstore vendor if they had monogatari novels and she didn't even know what I was talking about. Eventually she understood and said that they only have these two, I bought them and went happily home. When I started reading them I instantly regretted it because english translation was soulless and felt nothing like monogatari. It was full with english phrases that didn't fit monogatari.
