's review

it was ok

This has to be the silliest book I've read in a very long time. The characters were cartoonish, the plot disastrously constructed and the basic idea ruined as a result. There's a lot more Yasutaka Tsutsui could've done with his premise.
I do wonder, however, how much Paprika was affected by its translation. It didn't 'read' particularly well, and I found myself getting more and more frustrated as the book went on. I'd like to know what Japanese readers have made of it in its original form.
Oh, and just to finish, I found the comparison to Haruki Murakami written on the back positively insulting.
