After nearly an hour the voice of the announcer said "Kanamachhhhhhhh......"

My mind had been listening to train wheels clatter the same word out repeatedly. so I was ready. I wriggled out of the train and on to a nearly empty platform. The station was slightly elevated and fenced off, but very close to the roads and houses and people. There was an enormous painted movie poster which showed either Kevin Costner or Harrison Ford leaping through an enormous fireball. This ambiguity was something that I felt Hollywood should look into. The movie appeared to be called "Rub Bomb"

I really enjoyed this one -- there were parts where I felt like it could have been tightened up a bit, but the story, the characters, and the overall plot were quite engaging.
This book was really difficult to read, but I struggled through it. I had problems with the point of view constantly changing, the incomplete thoughts, and I never seemed to know who was saying what...

The story line was stretched too long, and I think that this story would have been better as a short story rather than a novel.
Tokyo Zero has got to be one of the best books I have ever read. Horne does a good job portraying this semi-cowboy character in Modern Tokyo who has to play his part in a biochemical attack in a Tokyo train station. Parallels can easily seen between the book and Aum Shinrikyo's attack of the same nature. Cyberpunk meets a Tarantino Universe where every moment is filled with non-stop action and plot twists.I loved the book a lot and I recomment it to anyone who loved Snow Crash by Neil Steaphenson or Kill Bill.
