1 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Samuel David Rosen on December 6, 2008
Format: Hardcover
I recently picked up a copy of Anima on the advice of one of my professors and wound up rather dissapointed with it. The base idea is... interesting, but it's nothing unique. Person from future directs person from past to save person farther in the past via a computer program. It's been done, though not often.
Instead, the uniqueness is promised by the relation, specifically, to the Second Life World. While this is an interesting premise, it ultimately leaves the plot rather empty, mostly in light of the fact that Second Life is a terrible game if you're not a political scientist, sociologist, or creepy internet nerd, and an even worse setting for a book.

Over all, if you're a fan of Second Life, it's worth a read. If you're not, don't bother to pick it up. You're wasting your time. Hopefully we'll see more from Hansen, preferably in a setting that's somewhat interesting.
