    1. Start thinking about the future today I like this book as it is straight to the point, concise but fascinating, without losing the human touch regarding latest technology, including its drawbacks The author raises some essential questions about the obstacles to normal relationships and everyday communication in today s world society The reader is taken on an adventurous trip to Japan with the help of an average couple that discovers a lot than is prepared to actually bear.The narrative is quite [...]

    2. Downloaded this late last night and thought I would read a few pages before going to bed Mistake I got sucked right in and read straight through to the end As someone who has lived in Japan and travels there as often as the wallet allows, the picture painted by the author of what Tokyo might be like in the future felt entirely plausible Great description, flowing dialogue and development of a small but convincing cast of characters in just a few chapters It felt a little like a pilot episode to [...]

    3. Who wouldn t want to spend an afternoon in a world where traditional culture is taken to the next level by eerily human robots, the familiar can suddenly take an alien twist, and everyday politeness might be a weapon in disguise This tantalizing glimpse into near future Tokyo by a writer who has lived and worked in Japan gives us just enough of a peek into the crystal ball to spark thoughtful pondering about what might come next for all of us From cleverly imagined household improvements to char [...]

    4. Tokyo 2060 is a joy to read Lucas Hall has spent extensive time studying and living in Japan, and brings a deeply authentic understanding of the culture and geography to her writing, itself full of well drawn characters While the story is somewhat slow to develop, I found myself enthralled with the interesting world and unfolding situations While Tokyo 2060 is far less gritty or dystopian, I would compare the confident techno Japanese prose to that of William Gibson, albeit much less dense, and [...]

    5. An interesting and plausible prediction of life in the 2060s let down by flat characters, overly telling prose and a narrator with no discernible voice So much could have been done with this concept through further development of the characters and the futuristic world in which they live.

    6. This novelette titled TOKYO 2060 is a 15,000 word short story and the first three chapters of an upcoming full length novel with the same title The characters in this story and the plot will be developed in much greater detail at a later date.
