on June 10, 2011 :
An interesting tale that combines ecological disaster, the fall of capitalist society and the subsequent utopian society with time travel. Set in Japan (and the country formerly known as Japan) it follows Thomas Redburn as he tries to gets to grips with the new society that is based on generosity, sharing and everuone playing their part while balancing the remaining discriminations and capitalist ways of life he still holds on to. Very well written, inventive and imaginative Shishin provides an alternative world view based on ecological and social balance based on the civilisations of old, before money, greed and selfishness took over society. A very good read that makes you think without you even realising it.
