All dragonball novels are good. Actually in thing Akira Toriyama does is usually good. Volume 21 is no exception. This volume continues the Tenkaichi Budokai and we find out who the mysterious men who show up to the tournament are. Good stuff. These final volumes of Dragonball are great reads espcially when u realize that theres only 5 volumes left.
Just. Plain. Awesome.= Dragon Ball
