To start the translation is excellent. You would not realise it was originally Japanese. It adds new twists to the time travel genre. My new worry is that the Tom Cruise film will be nothing like this, the description of the suits in the book and the look of them in the trailer are nothing alike!
Whilst this is a very violent and sweary book the overall story is an interesting spin on the normal gangsters and bitter ex-cop stories. I felt in places the swearing cold have been taken out for some more witty dialogue but overall a very entertaining read.
I was looking for a coffee maker that was quick and easy for only one or two people at a time. This fits the bill. Makes a smooth espresso quicker than my stove pot and the clean up takes only a minute. Highly recommended.
