I read this a while back, but forgot to write the review. I remember the story keeping my interest. I remember not wanting it to end, as I do with any good story. the characters were believable and had many facets to their makeup. There was conflict to keep the readers interest. One always wonders after reading a story like this, if this exact thing could happen. A scary thought, to be sure. The adventure almost would stop and be resolved, but then it continued, a little frustrating, but still good. The book definitely held my attention from beginning to end.

It's free...it's long...all good right? NOPE!! I could NOT get past this story's first chapter. I've tried at least 5 times to read it. However, it is so boring a snail could break the sound barrier running from it. The plot is not apparent. The characters were hiding behind the insipid text.

Did not hold my interest, the story itself was too much out of focus. I also didn't like the layout of the typematter changes from on font size to another. A very disappointing read, writing style very poor, plot not well defined, couldn't go past 26 pages.

I'm only 70 pages into the book and it's like reading a current account. Just substitude China for Japan, and software patents for oil-drilling patents and we have 2011 instead of 1980s. Can't wait to finish the rest of it.

The plot kept my intrest, a bit long, some of the computer talk was way above my head--but I still enjoyed the book.

A strategy needing font follow through. A thriller to be sure but will make you also laugh. A recipe with today, a pinch of history, and sprinkles of myth. A plot that is possible, right? A very good read.

Okay read. Good hypothetical insights into the possibilities and movements on the street. For all the twists and turns, the ending was somewhat predictable and not enough closure.

I really enjoyed this book. There were lots of twists and turns, plus a history lesson to boot. The Samurai period of ancient Japan has always been of interest to me, as I very much enjoyed James Clavell's book, Shogun, which i read years ago. I'm almost tempted to reread Shogun, and then reread this book as well. Anyone who enjoyed Clavell's Shogun will really like this book. It's almost as if this book is an extension of Shogun, bringing it up to the present day.
