Overview

"In the novel Ring, the videotape was the vendetta of Sadako, a tragic girl who could not be sated with simple revenge. In the sequel Spiral, a mutating virus displaced the tape and came to threaten the entire diversity of life. In this much-awaited conclusion of the Ring trilogy, everything you thought you knew about the story will have to be put aside." "In Loop, the killer mimics both AIDS and cancer, in a deadly new guise. Only one person, Kaoru Futami, asks where the disease could have originated. The youth, mature beyond his years, must hope to find answers in the deserts of New Mexico and the Loop project, a virtual matrix created by scientists. The fate of more than just his loved ones depends on Kaoru's success." Though best enjoyed by fans of Ring and Spiral, Loop is also written as a stand-alone work. The author's own favorite of the trilogy, this astounding finale is an emotionally resonant tale that scales conceptual heights from an angle all its own.

"High-flying science-fictional redefinition of reality... [Suzuki] is more interested in separating your head from your body philosophically than physically." - The Agony Column

    Not Too Bad

    I thought that Loop was entertaining for the most part. At times it read more like a medical journal than a novel and bogged down or read slow during does points. It was far removed from the ¿girl in the well¿ in Ring¿which started this whole series. Loop was definitely not what I would have expected. Despite that I look forward to the prequel¿¿Birthday¿ next fall.
