    Japan in Space

    This book and others by the author I both love and am unsettled by. As someone who has visited and enjoyed Japan, its society and its history I am drawn in by many small details and good story telling. The future history within this series of books and the preceding “Nogiku” series is well put together and is plausible enough to draw me in. Nearest to “magic” technology for me is the ability to speak with animals but even there there’s explanations of how it developed that make me suspend disbelief. The future earth described in the first series with a lone remaining city clinging on by tech in a destroyed environment is sadly very easy to believe. All is not sweetness and light and the leading characters have to cope with all the nastiness and complications any developed society has. Some of this I personally found difficult and sometimes stopped reading for several weeks. Impressed that we are given insight into the motivations of all sides of the conflicts and cruelties. I am very glad that I persisted and now look forward to the next book in the series.
