I am not trying to say the writer's ability to convey a story is terrible, what I am trying to say, it is not in any comprehensible form that is able to keep the reader's attention.

This book is written purposely in irregular English that has been 1 translated from the original Japanese by a computer as a Japanese to English translator, I know when a document has been translated by a machine, and this book clearly has been , and 2 written with a mixture of the English language and HMTL markup language.
These elements are confusing, making it extremely hard to follow any kind of story that may be hidden in the text. Yes, this may sound like an extremely interesting premise. I thought so too. Oct 16, Saturnina rated it really liked it Shelves: own , fiction , japanese. This one's a weird one. I'm undecided on whether this is just randomly generated nonsense, or if the author actually sat down and wrote this all down because it somehow made sense to him. I might actually be leaning towards the former, but nevertheless, I cannot help but like this book in a way.
With more effort put into it, it could have actually made sense, and I like the style of it. While the "punctuation" seems to bother some people, I feel it fits. And some sequences of words just end up s This one's a weird one. And some sequences of words just end up sounding so beautiful, like "malice of crucified memory". So, weird but inspirational, in a random sort of way. Oct 08, Runed Platypus rated it liked it. View all 3 comments.

For me, Stein's novel evokes a surreal assembly of awkward upholsteries, and Siratori's has all those fibers turned into razor-wires - and also, for some reason, everything is covered in shit, cum, bile, and blood. The novel is written with English words, but it would be oversimplifying to say that it is written in English.
Siratori embraces the creation violence in his language in the same way that Carroll embraces the creation of whimsy in his neologisms; he works aware of the words of English, but disassociates and disorganizes them, as if collapsing all the molecules in a warzone to a viscous, xyresic sludge — a new primordial soup.
A synopsis on the backflap pretends a plot, describing the collapsed warzone when before it still bore structure, but if that plot can be found between it and the front cover, it is merely through the suggestion of it.
Whatever story one creates out of this noise will be their own story, built ramshackle, resigned to accommodating the strange physics; the strange punctuations of this disintegrated world, where the unopposable forces of our own — gravity, entropy — are succeeded by the empirical law of violence. Not sure I recommend it!
Jul 15, syster Alma rated it really liked it Shelves: fiction. It is difficult to get the deep of the meaning. But a very beautiful story. Aug 02, Aubrey rated it liked it. Conceptually fascinating and hits that spot of "arthouse cyberpunk" that I dig so much.. Jun 12, Padraig MacIain rated it really liked it. Kenji has an incredibly complex writing style that is linguistically bizare. Mind you, he is part of a new wave writing school, Mondo Bizaro is memory serves.

Science Fiction. About Kenji Siratori. Kenji Siratori. A Japanese avant-garde artist who is currently bombarding the internet with wave upon wave of highly experimental, uncompromising, progressive, intense prose. His is a writing style that not only breaks with tradition, it severs all cords, and can only really be compared to the kind of experimental writing techniques employed by the Surrealists, William Burroughs and Antonin Artaud.
Embracing the A Japanese avant-garde artist who is currently bombarding the internet with wave upon wave of highly experimental, uncompromising, progressive, intense prose.
Embracing the image mayhem of the digital age, his relentless prose is nonsensical and extreme, avant-garde and confused, with precedence given to twisted imagery, pace and experimentation over linear narrative and character development.
Like technological spasm, a bio-electronical deflation. Like mind hallucinations caused by diasepam, but clear as a dew-drop on an urban balcony. Kenji Sirator's Blood Electric surfs on the edge of genetic memmory recorded 24 years ago. Kenji Siratori is expressible on modern self science. The meeting of technological karma with genome replication in enviorment of self-transmitting clouds, the insemination of cyber reality into natural reality caused this semi-conductive latest-generation expose. The books is written in a code-seuqence of feelings-productive scripts and informational griffs wrapped in sense. The cyberpunk mutation, the inner rebel of the one and the mass - a natural envenom caused by pollution, microwave and radio distortion.
