Read from December 28 to 29, 2011

A crime thriller but, as Crichton says in his bibliography, "This novel questions the conventional premise that direct foreign investment in American high technology is by definition good and should be allowed to continue without restraint or limitation." So mostly what was interesting about the books was all of the research about Japanese culture and business practices that was included in the text. Thought-provoking, especially reading it in a foreign country and having similar questions come up about cultural differences both in terms of how the society functions as a whole and in terms of personal interactions.
