Reviews for Tokyo Zero
I downloaded this from Feedbooks one day this week, when Feedbooks itself was down. The holding page had links to some of the most popular books on the site (to read while you were waiting for the site to come back up?) and the last one on the list was this. It caught my eye because of the first line of the blurb: "One man goes to Tokyo to end the world. It goes fairly well." It appealed to my sense of humour.The story is a compelling one - covering apocalyptic cults and the experience of day-to-day life in Japan for a Westerner, which makes for an intriguing mix. It's well written and (despite its fairly grim subject matter) an enjoyable and often funny read. There were some editing issues with the Feedbooks version of the text: nothing major (it's/its and their/there confusion, jut for just), but enough to be a slight distraction when reading.read more
