I finally finished this book this morning. The first part was really scientific and theoretical and philisophical so it was hard to read but I'm glad I kept at it since it did finally live up to my expectations, and there was a reason he wrote that first part that way.

I have the next addess and will send these off as soon as I get something to ship them in.

just got it, thanks megami-no-ushi and book-man-8.
I'm really curious about this author.

Journal Entry 7 by kizmiaz at Belém , Lisboa (cidade) Portugal on Friday, November 11, 2011
This is a more than satisfying end to the trilogy but also the hardest book in the trilogy to get into, the first chapter is so dense with scientifical explanations that it drags although it pays off in the end.
The characters are very interesting and the plot is tight, with the author picking up every loose end from the previous books and giving them direction.
The author is able, once again, to give the virus a new form and keep it interesting, in this book he takes it to a totally different level giving the story a great twist that actually ends up adding excitment to the whole thing.
The loop is a great concept and it translates in all sorts of ways during the book.
I really enjoyed this book and find it a very good ending to the trilogy, although I was a bit bored by the description of the previous two books during the narrative, it was unecessary, in my opinion.
One thing that really bothered me about this edition is the fact that the translator gets the royal treatment by having his name on the cover and of the same size as the author, what's up with that????

Ok, I didn't expect this at all... I very much prefer occult to sci-fi unfortunately, so I was a bit disappointed by it.

Journal Entry 14 by wingBoekentrolwing at Leeuwarden, Fryslân (Friesland) Netherlands on Thursday, February 21, 2013
The books arrived safely today :-)
Thanks for sending them out to me, salvami and for starting this ray, kizmiaz! Look forward to reading them. I'll keep you posted on my progress.

I didn't have as much tenacity as the others that have started and finished this book. Gave the book more than 100 pages to get better, got somehere half way "the Cancer Ward", but for me it just didn't get better.

I liked the first part, where Kaoru is little, debating with his father, so I thought well of the book at first. Too bad it hasn't persuaded me enough to keep reading and get to know the twist & turn and tidying up of loose ends the others are talking about.

I've PMed the next in line for their address and the books will be going on to Germany next.

Thanks anyway for sharing the whole trilogy, I'm glad they came along :-) and made me read an author I hadn't read before.
