Government s confusion about what xactly THEY CAN DO THE BOOK IS can do The book is in current times and I have My Favorite Earthling (Otherworldly Men, every reason to believe that it s a pretty reasonable snapshot of Japan s place in the world The government really doesn t know what to do They are afraid to ask other nations to house their refugees There is this striking several pages where officials are reporting on their discreetnuiries to Australia asking if it would be OK if five million or so people set up shop in the Outback if they promised not to be any trouble The world is portrayed in the novel as generally hospitable and concerned and countries step up with real Doglands estate and airplanes and ships to startvacuating once the Riveted (Iron Seas, evacuation plans are in place but it was so sad to see the Japanese characters worry about asking for help No way would that happen in an American book We get warning that this supervolcano beneath Yellowstone National Park is going to blow in two years we are announcing to all our friends and political relatives that we ll be moving into their garages and that we ll be bringing our pets Japan has had a very unusual century and it isven now struggling with balancing its past reputation with its present one I had some sense of this already but Wikipedia tells me that the late 1960s were just when Japan was starting to pit itself against international manufacturing competition and finding success and there were still plenty of former prisoners of war around that were still pissed off and talking It s never addressed outright in the book but one gets the impression from the characters that the Japanese people don t uite think they deserve humanitarian aide considering well you knowThe other noteworthy character dilemma is the struggle with what it will mean to the Japanese people and culture to stablish a diaspora Even though people are being relocated by the tens of thousands to the same places it s considered a death knell for the Japanese way of life Which it probably would be although Jewish people have kept it up for a very good while now The government is by no means forbidding anyone to leave and is actively negotiating with other countries for space but it s actually wondered aloud if it would be better for veryone to die and for the world to remember the great nation of Japan and its glorious history instead of letting it trickle away ingloriously That is not anything you would see in an American book at least not in a regular character Maybe in an unintentional villain maybe TRITENESS ALERT They say that a picture paints a thousand words but that one sentence I d tell you which one but it s gone back to the library already captures just about Fates (Fates, everything there is to say about what makes this a Japanese book TRITE If I were conscientious I d read it myself or if I had a Japanese literature scholar friend I would ask but I m not and I don t so I ll limit myself to wondering how this 1971 novel compares to a contemporary Japanese science fiction novel I can t personally think of any book I ve read from any culture orra or genre that Recipe for Temptation (Madewood Brothers, expresses that sense of futility and hopelessness and stubborn pride at the global level I overuse the word interesting Sorry But I am sick of thesaurusizingIt s interesting that the author shows so much of this mental and internal turmoilspecially when he shows a world that positively leaps *To Japan S Aid When *Japan s aid when asked The island disappears but Sub Pilot survives so it s not ven a particularly depressing book It makes me think of Deep Impact which I never saw I have the impression that Deep Impact is very depressing This book though is of a disaster romp and political crisis than swan song I will confess that I started flipping through pages towards the very nd One gets the point once all the decisions are made Yep Japan sinks way far down Eccentric Scientist was right Average read The Netflix series is average as well Both the first story in the book and the first OBaby episode of the adaptation made me want to DNF both Map Japan Sinks. Way from the Asian mainland the Japanese Archipelago has been moving inexorably toward an unseen force in the Japan Trench and is set on a collision course that threatens to pull theconomic superpower under literall. Impressively technical but thoroughly dry devoid of Nerds emotion It s a good book but I cannot give it a high rating It s not friendly to non Japanese reader and reuires lots of different knowledge While this book lacks style and real characters development it is a page turner and the plausibility of thevents makes it really scary The most interesting part in my opinion was the political aspect of such an vent and what it reveals of the humanity of governments Excellent rather frightening and intense classic sci fi novel from Komatsu It s just as much about the Japanese culture and people as about the ntirely believable cataclysm that causes the Shadow on the Crown (The Emma of Normandy Trilogy, entire Japanese archipelago to be torn asunder byarthuakes and volcanic ContamiNation eruptions andventually to sink below the waves of the Pacific Recommended if you can find a copy 60215 this is not a particularly well written book in terms of poetics character plot theme this book is very Taxi ins Glück easy to read short in describing why i give it a three it is the disaster movie tond all disaster
at least films like day after tomorrow or 2012 it is a fascinating portrayal of how japanese society might react politically to this ntire xistential threat perhaps it onlymovies at least
works if you look past the writing if you have read much japanese literature seenif you look past the writing if you have read much japanese literature seen read some manga know critical histories know how many japanese want to see themselves as brave selfless also resigned to fate attached almost metaphysically to the home islands i have not read any disaster books though seen a few films there are numbers here numbers and passages Losing My Virginity and Other Dumb Ideas early in the book insisting on validity and possibility of the geophysics involved there are some vignettes following scientists politicians monk but for me beyond all this the value of this book isntirely the idea the way A rather plodding but classic novel by Sakyo Komatsu where JAPAN NOBODY DOES DISASTERS LIKE JAPAN nobody does disasters like Japan through intense The Magic Rolling Pin earthuakes and violent volcanicruptions and sinks into the ocean Indecent... Exposure (Indecent, every Korean s dream I m rating this book a 3 but I d by no means say Japan Sinks is really an average book I think there s uite a lot going on in this rather famous Sci Fi novel and actual Science Fiction lots and lots of accurate information to back up the plot and the characters are while limited thoroughly uniue andngaging But there are two things holding me back from admiring this book and those are 1 Alike what happens with most literature that puts a big mphasis on action and activity what happens is a lot of lost focus from the reader who can t really be bothered to link up image after image that ultimately just take up space until the ventual result I ve never been a fan of books that relied heavily on action because for the most part it doesn t matter until whatever character I m pursuing has some sort of reflection on it or the plot moves forward following the pages of activity In the case of Japan Sinks there s an increasing prevalence of dangerous activity throughout and while it s at first Garden Bouquets and Beyond exciting to read about a volcanorupting The Unseen Wonder earthuake occuring or tidal wave nearing whatventually happens is that 20 40 pages continue to repeat these The Management Bible events and their following disasters over and over In thend these large amounts of pages are summarized solely with A lot is ruined the protagonist is further distressed And this is okay but the amount of text used to convey damages ultimately bridges the vents of the actual story too far apart2 This is purely a personal thing but I am an American reader who hasn t visited Japan Seen lots and lots of pictures have a career planned there in the near future but I ve never been there and I am not familiar with the larger image of Japanese land towns and cities and so what ventually happened was an Sleepless (Bird of Stone, even greater disconnect because of the above point then what it should have been if this were set in America I m listing this as 2 because it is solely a defect in addition to 1 I ve read plenty of Japanese literature set in Japan before.

But this is the first international novel I ve read that didn t follow some structure of storycharacters as the primary goal or at least didn t keep them as a prominent focus for the majority of the text Basically you ll keep them as a prominent focus for the majority of the text Basically you ll reading about a lot of destruction in places you can t ven visualize It s not necessarily boring but rather it s very passiveBut overall I did njoy Japan Sinks Highly recommended for the Scientific type of reader as there s uite a lot of good fun to be had with lots of descriptive dialogue centered on the Earth s core and how Earthuakes occur and convection and all sorts of good ducational stuff like that And the characters are while rather stiff scientist types very njoyable when they get a chance to show themselves In the Invisible (The Curse of Avalon end I really wish there was justither greater spacing between character and destruction or less of the latter and of the formerBut again recommended definitely I have no idea where I got the idea to read this book None It s Japanese sci fi in translation from 1971 It s not on any lists that I might have Yummy Supper encountered and I can t think of whatlse I might have been reading reviews of that would have had someone mention this people at often refer to other books that I fairly often investigate to some degree But I went searching for this book and reuested it from Central Storage at the library It was waiting for me I don t know how many registered patrons there are of our library system but no one wanted it Fate Perhaps Apathy Perhaps I read it in a few days but kept it for six whole weeks and
once did appear on any kind of wait list for it It s weird to think that of the millions of people who could have wanted to read it I was the only one in the city who did One could spin this circumstance in a variety of ways I ll stick with being a ridiculous dork My interest in plate tectonics iis probably why I went so far as to get and read this bookThe premise of the book is actually uite interesting Geological processes are ffecting a giant rift in the sea bed that topples the Japanese archipelago right into the chasms below Everything is going to go One lone scientist has predicted it Who will listen Is it ven possible to Deep Listening evacuateveryone in timeSo this is a book I read in translation and I m not sure how that affected the book It s also 1971 science fiction which is not like really like modern science fiction in that the characters don t have a lot of character There are also no women in it xcept for two both of whom are brought into the story for the sole purpose of giving the main character someone to have sex with not at the same time Not having women in a novel really limits what the novel can do The science actually wasn t too bad Now I m no arth scientist and I wouldn t Evolution, Me Other Freaks of Nature even call myself anducated fan although I am a fan but the phenomena described in the book the ones that did all these horrible things work for the story They ve got a high tech deep submersible submarine which is pretty cool I forgot veryone s names sadly but the two main guys are a skilled pilot of said sub and the Eccentric Scientist who makes the discovery The two women nd up having sex with Sub PilotThis is the first Japanese science fiction book I have read in a while so I am not sure what uniuely Japanese science fiction conventions are at play that I am not recognizing But basically no one believes the scientist until it is really too late to save Trajan everyone That s pretty common In real life I like to believe that witharthuakes killing people here and volcanoes killing millions of people there at a freuency of about Bunnys Book Club Goes to School every couple of weeks people would believe him and take action long before they do More than the first half of the book is about the scientist gathering data and being frustrated and not being listened to or being heard but no one in the government doing anything The disaster stuff is horrifying at thedges but you don t see it up close until the very The Peculiar Pig endBy far this most interesting part of the book is the.
