Hey look I found an old write up I ad to do for an internshipThe book is a strange combination of science fiction and new age that never works I suppose mixing technology and mysticism is an admirable idea but Besher undeniably fails in is attempt to reconcile the two And as if this straddling of genres isn t enough Besher even throws in zombies for good measure although as far as I can tell they ave absolutely no bearing on the plot Granted Besher does not seem to take Aircraft of World War I 1914 1918 The Essential Aircraft Identification Guide his story too seriously ase throws in some Myth Taken Identity humorous moments but unfortunately the novel is only funny unintentionallyThe utter saturation of the entire world in Japanese culture isard to believe and taken way too far Practically every American institution Amazon.com: The Underwater Photographer eBook: Martin Edge: Kindle Store has a Japanese moniker attached and everyone uses Japanese terminology and modes of dress Maybe in the mid 90s it seemed like Japanad a corner on technology but that seems very unrealistic today especially in a novel set less than 30 years into the futureThere is very little character development Gobi is a cartoon character at best His son is in peril but the only time that is evident is when Besher remembers to mention that Gobi is in pain When Besher is not spelling out Gobi s grief Growing Marijuana (Idiot's Guides) he goes on at length about Gobi s sex life yes even while in the midst of savingis son and the world Gobi still The Jane Austen Project has time to sleep with two women in two days and congratulateimself on Dynamite Doc or Christmas Dad? his own attractiveness and sensitive nature For a grieving and brilliant investigator Gobi is awfully easily distractedThe rest of the characters barely register Claudia and Yuki are interchangeable Asian femme fatales Tara disappears midway through the book and Kimiko serves absolutely no purpose Trevor s adventure trying to escape Gametime mightave been an interesting sub plot but Besher deals with it in one chapter oddly thrown in at the end and who couldn t Industrial Applications of Biopolymers and Their Environmental Impact have guessed that Trevor would meet DeviBesher s ideas are at once interesting and outdated The virtual metropolis and gaming are believable and even seem somehow uaint as many othersave built stories around the same idea and there could be real suspense if Besher could actually write in the idea of getting trapped there Unfortunately this plot line is smothered with pointless tangents about reincarnation evil geniuses and Gobi s previous career as a private eye The gumshoe Besher s word plot point seems to function only as a way for Besher to insert some Retraite sur le Cantique des Cantiques: Commentaires bibliques (Spiritualité) (French Edition) hard boiled detective dreck in the middle for no apparent reason except to add sex and a long lost love who pointlessly comes back from the dead Gobi and other characters constantly gush aboutow good Blood Sorcery (Shadows of Magic, he was as an up and coming investigator but that seemsard to believe since Gobi The Elusive Heiress Nancy Drew himself sayse uit the profession after getting Pizarro and the Conuest of Peru his first serious client killed His skill inis present career is not that convincing either in fact I was never truly clear on what Are You There God? It's Me M his career even was or whye was the only person who could save Satori City or what Evan (O'Connor Brothers Vol. 5) he actually did to accomplish itActually I was never truly clear on anything thatappens in this book Between all the Japanese pseudo scientific terminology new age mumbo jumbo and just plain gibberish it s very On Hitler's Mountain Overcoming the Legacy of a Nazi Childhood PS hard to figure out what theeck Besher is talking about But then it s A cristalli liquidi (Italian Edition) hard to actually care Things are differentere too Kimiko since I met you I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad he tolder He meant it She Pip Sueak Saves the Day Medici Books for Children had turnedis life into a love factory and production was going up every dayWhat do you do with a passage like that As a reader you Dragonsbane have to respond to it by flinching or gagging or falling to your knees inorrified respect that someone would think it let alone put it down let alone allow it to go to printAll I can say is if you admire that turn of phrase she Lonestar Sanctuary had turnedis life into a love factory you might enjoy this bookThe rest of this is my review of the first Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator half of the book which Iad laid asideThis is billed as cyber noir It ain t Altered Carbon is cyber noir Burning Chrome is cyber noir This is a Hello Kitty lunch box with kanji letters spelling out Your Base Are Belong to Furious 7But false advertising on the cover aside there s not a lot of there Understanding the Black Economy and Black Money in India hereOne of the challenges of spec fic is decidingow to integrate the speculative in such a way that it seems normal and is preferably not an infodump Actually it s the same with noir The cops are on their way over to slap the cuffs on Brigette O Shaughnessy before Sam Spade tells Desperate (Bad Baker Boys, her whye s got

Hus far the largest virtual reality space uality Control in the Pharmaceutical Industry has been crashed by shadowy entity entities and the owner Japanese based conglomerate Sartorias asked Frank Gobi to investigate Gobi s son is among the victims left in a comaNot to belabor the point but a decent thriller establishes that much in the prologueI paid 50 cents for this at the library book sale It doesn t feel like a good investment of that Bomb: The Race to Build--and Steal--the World's Most Dangerous Weapon (Newbery Honor Book) half dollar I couldave Oh Susannah had 45 ounces of coffee for that No you know what Fuck it I m not wasting my time on terrible books that I want to drop in the bathtub after 36 pagesFrom my time with those 36 pages 36pp in the only female characters we ve met are young voluptuous sex nymph NPCs The actual prose isn t soot eitherSo no I m not going to keep reading I don t need to see what else this turnip The Founders of Psychical Research has to say about this ridiculously set up virtual meta reality cum spiritual clusterfuck I ll up my yearly goal to make up for this nonsense Frack this Hashtag learninghowtouitbooksbeforeitstoolate forgettable cyber punk novel about tattoos viruses I think Iad a lot of trouble getting through this book It just seemed to drag on forever A little than a year ago I acuired this book from a neighbor who was getting rid of boxes and boxes of books and was kind enough to let me root through them beforehand The front cover design and back cover synopsis spoke to me much like a bag of Combos does at a rest stop during a long trip I stuck it in the car a couple months ago and I read it at stop lights drive thru lanes while waiting to pick up my son etc It started as a wonderfully imaginative near future written by someone who is obviously a Japanophile Besher creatively meshes together cultural and Pelé: The King of Soccer historical items and concepts while weaving it all together with a kind of new agey mysticism Just a bit too over written felt like almost every sentence was an attempt to prove the author s understanding of Japanese culture eg The smile oner face was drawn tight like the string of a samisen Luckily there aren t too many sex scenes in the book but Chakras & Self-Care: Activate the Healing Power of Chakras with Everyday Rituals here s an example of one that actually made me guffaw and who likes to admit when they guffaw so embarrassing especially during intimate moments Hisands traveled down The Unforgiven her back and felt the globes ofer derriere That scene actually got worse as it went on to detail the lubricated third rail of Omgiven av idioter her shaven vulvaLast night I brought the book inside from the car and this was the first time I read than 5 pages at a time I read a good 50 pages or so Iit page 216 and thought Wow I don t even really care what Kapitulatus! happens Why am I still reading this I couldn t answer that uestion It s like when you eat something just because it s in front of you and not because you re eitherungry or it tastes good It s The Ivory Gate hard for me to stop in the middle of a book especially if I m past the midway point but life is short and I think it s only getting shorter It s a real shame this book isn t better because there s the germ of some interesting ideasere a near future where VR as been pretty much perfected a city which shifts into a different reality every night technology crossing over with the deeper meaning of consciousness But Besher never really capitalises on these the VR is the ackneyed old like real life only pixellated seriously the moderate success of Second Life notwithstanding who would actually rent a virtual office that was exactly like a real office and I never really got a feel of what was so different about the post virtual world around which the plot revolves other than that it shockingly didn t adhere to the same rules as real lifeHis world building is best exemplified for me by is obsession with the word New we are given no indication at all of why New Nippon is not just Japan and Neo Tokyo is inexplicably called that before becoming a reality shifting enigma Putting New in front of a name just does not make sense unless the setting is a new world New York is three thousand miles away from York and New England isn t what Oliver Cromwell decreed after the Civil War and as for New South Wales There s even mention of a New UN which if you think about it should surely be the New New League of Nations except that you know that s not what anyone would ever call it This may seem like I m being picky but for a vision described one cherry picked review
*uote as increasingly *as increasingly this is dreadfully poor futurologyOne the book s biggest conceits is the mixing of technology with spirituality something I wouldn t normally be a fan of but I was willing to suspend my disbelief if it made for an interesting novel Unfortunately Besher falls into a classic logical trap if one non traditional science is real then clearly they must all be real right This is what most annoys me about things like.
