Having lived in Tokyo, I sometimes get really annoyed reading books set there. Writers pull out the same old cliches that make you wonder if they have been closer to Tokyo than looking at a few postcards. Luckily, Tokyo Zero avoids that, with some awesome passages that had me nodding my head and laughing. English teachers as evil killing machines = priceless. And it's set in Koiwa. I dunno why that is funny, it just is.

I did find the writing rather varied though, some awesomely clever written passage and some quite tedious and confusing stuff. There is one section where the POV character is narrating even though he is unconscious. Seriously! Still worth read though.

On a whim, I gave this book a shot. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It's a thinking fast paced book.

Marc is able to synthesize a big-think technology near-future with lyrical prose. That said, Tokyo Rose isn't about what the future looks like. Instead, it's about a real and conflicted character. Someone else said it best - think of a Tarantino character in a Gibson-esque Tokyo ruminating on viral memes and the end of times.

That mix is just a blast to read, and I'm looking forward to his next book (where I'm hoping some of the rough edges have been ironed out re: clarity) The Unhappy Planet.

Best of all, it raises the bar for independently published fiction.

I read this book a few years ago when it was on the internet under a creative commons liscence. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am glad to see it on Amazon. I will be buying a copy so that I can reread it.
The story is smart and engaging, with enough detail to make you feel a part of the action, but enough twists to keep you guessing. Marc Horne is a masterful author who makes the life of a westerner in a Tokyo death cult seem plausible. The ending is great. A unique vision that will leave you to think about where we are headed.
I recommend this book to anyone looking for an enjoyable read.
