It is a very strange story, It is interesting but weird too. The way Koji Suzuki marries genetic science and the world of paranormal is quite unique.

It is not gory and the plot differs from a typical western horror story. But in some places it made my skin crawl. Just think about it: a murdered girl in possession of an enormous paranormal powers and a cynical professor who fells victim to her curse come together posthumously not only to resurrect themselves, but to punish the humankind.

In general I find Japanese thrillers and stories written in other genres more intriguing, as they do not follow sometimes very predictable Western patterns.

It is telling that I read this about a month ago and I've already forgotten a lot of what happens. I do recall that it follows on from the first book directly and includes some of the same characters, but feels more like science fiction than a ghost story. Written in Suzuki's usual style, it is a decent plot but doesn't come close to ringu as a stand alone book. As evidenced by my vague recollection, it is a big lump of faux-science and wild goose chases, without the punch or urgency of ringu. It is also a very different from any of the film sequels, if that's what you were expecting

My son loves this set of books. He really enjoys this author although not easy to get hold of locally.
