Quite different from other books, interesting but not an earth shaking read.

The book starts off using the narrative trick of starting towards the end of the story, then working back in time much like thought associations. To me, it read like an action novel with a counterpoint of philosophical/life-analyzing comments. It was well worth the read, filled with unexpected turns and interesting characters.

Ostensibly a thriller, it starts off feeling more like a travelogue about a westerner's first observations about Tokyo, then starts cooking with a nice, tight little plot about the planning of a terrorist attack - inspired by Aum Shinrikyo sarin gas attacks in '95. But the overall structure of the book is like a whirlpool, and soon everything speeds up, frantically and furiously, with crazy shit being tossed at your head around every corner - great big chunks of sci-fi, eastern mysticism, posthumanism, and conspiracy theory.

Do you want me to switch the ownership of the book to you Marc ? This way you could update the text if necessary.

I'll add this to my Creative Commons Science Fiction list. Would you label it apocalyptic fiction and cyberpunk too ? Got lists for those too.
