Its clipped, detached style won't suit those looking for hard-hitting emotional drama, and if you don't get excited by phrases like "omni-directional pulse-doppler radar", this is perhaps not the book for you. For military aviation adventure fans, SF fans, and of course anime watchers, recommended.
I'll imagine that, like me, many of the people that buy this book, have done so because of the excellent Anime series that came out a few years ago. Like any TV show/anime/film that's born from novels, the book contains more detail, particularly in the characters background. Being an aviation enthusiast (or Plane Spotter!!), many of the technical details astonish me, especially when you consider this book was first published over in Japan in 1984. The author does state that he touched up one or two details here and there before this edition was released, but man he has a good imagination! All in all, it is well worth the read; you don't have to be into Sci-fi, planes or Anime to enjoy it.
So, when does Good Luck! Yukikaze and Unbroken Arrow come out and follow this?
