I have no idea where I got the idea to read this book. But I went searching for this book, and requested it from Central Storage at the library. It was waiting for me. I read it in a few days but kept it for six whole weeks, and not once did anyone appear on any kind of wait list for it.
My interest in plate tectonics iis probably why I went so far as to get and read this book. The premise of the book is actually quite interesting: Geological processes are effecting 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.
Is it even possible to evacuate everyone in time? There are also no women in it, except 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 two women end up having sex with Sub Pilot. This is the first Japanese science fiction book I have read in a while, so I am not sure what uniquely 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 everyone.
In real life, I like to believe that with earthquakes killing people here and volcanoes killing millions of people there, at a frequency of about 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.
They are afraid to ask other nations to house their refugees. There is this striking several pages where officials are reporting on their discreet enquiries 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 estate and airplanes and ships to start evacuating, once the 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. Japan has had a very unusual century, and it is even 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 s 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.
The other noteworthy character dilemma is the struggle with what it will mean to the Japanese people and culture to establish a diaspora.In this post, I’ll show you how to search for your SharePoint content from a bot using the Bot Framework, OAuth2 and urbanagricultureinitiative.com Behind this simple use case, the main objective of this example is to show you how to implement a bot with an authentication mechanism to .
