    1. Good sci fi story about a human like AI that travels to medieval Japan and other time periods to defend humans from a vicious alien species.The concept sounded trite at first, but the implementation is awesome.The main character aka O the Messenger comes from the future, where humans retreated on different planets throughout the galaxy He s able of upstreaming, aka time traveling, and goes back to past centuries to earth where he almost singlehandedly fights the alien aggressors that can time tr [...]


    2. Over the weekend, I had the wonderful pleasure of re reading an OwnVoices Japanese, science fiction novel called The Lord of the Sands of Time by Issui Ogawa for Dewey s 24 Hour Readathon It s a book that I ve owned for a long time, and one that I had only read when I originally bought it After reading it on Saturday, I mentally kicked myself because this is a book that I should read frequently There s depth within the one hundred ninety some odd pages of this novel then there is within an ent [...]


    3. Japan, AD 248 A story set in Japan before the emergence of samurai Oh, Issui Ogawa That explains it Miyo, the oracular Princess Himiko, has left the palace to walk through the countryside with her bodyguard Kan They climb Mount Shiki and spy the distant harbor of Suminoe Kan wonders if any of the ships they see might be from Wei, or Kentak, or Roma Roma Did the 3rd Century Japanese know about Rome Miyo answers that the distance makes it unlikely the embassy she sent to Roma had lost half its shi [...]


    4. I ve heard it said that readers will accept one blatantly ludicrous or impossible thing in a story without much complaint, but add in another one and eyebrows start going up, to say nothing of every additional one past that The problem with including time travel in a story is that it s almost always than one blatantly ludicrous thing at the same time, and if not done well, it s really easy to get the reader lost in trying to figure out how the time travel works instead of engaging with the stor [...]


    5. A surprisingly deep read with a moving ending Enjoyable and innovative Not quite immersive enough to get five stars but nearly there This is the kind of book I want to read sci fi for.


    6. I think that the Japanese have a penchant for open ended stories and for scary villains that are either faceless or else inscrutable and abhorrent in their moralities This book was no exception.In The Lord of the Sands of Time, humanity in the future has been decimated by a faceless enemy alien menace Whoever the adversary is, they have unleashed monstrous creations that are designed for one purpose to kill humanity Humanity has tried everything it can think of, from talking, to even surrenderin [...]


    7. Interesting read Humanity seeks to save itself by sending artificial soldiers, and a supporting AI called Cutty Sark, into the past to defeat the insidious ET Split across two interweaving stories one deals with Messenger O in ancient Japan, while the other looks back and yet forward at Messenger O s experiences prior to his arrival in Japan, starting in the 26th century.Shocked some Hollywood studio hasn t done an Edge of Forever with this one already the Tom Cruise film being based on a Japane [...]


    8. This was my first sci fi book It made me cry, laugh and blush Words cannot describe this book except forI loved it.


    9. I suspect that if you like alternate history and military science fiction, you ll really like this book The worldbuilding is cool, and the writing itself is strong However, the copy on the back cover makes it look like it s going to be a sweeping, actiony, time travel romance, and that is not what it is I don t particularly like military SF or alternate history, so the book was a disappointment for me, but it may not be for you


    10. Num futuro n o muito distante a humanidade foi escorra ada para os limites do sistema solar pelos ataques insistentes de alien genas desconhecidos que se manifestam como cyborgs destrutivos O planeta Terra j foi aniquilado v rias vezes pelos ataques da for a alien gena mas a humanidade tem um plano para ripostar e reconquistar o seu ber o estender a luta pelo espa o tempo, enviando for as a momentos chave do passado que permitam humanidade lutar contra a invas o S que ao faz lo v o come ar a cri [...]


    11. I bought Lord of the Sands of Time because of its super pretty cover Knowing nothing about the actual content or the author, I didn t have any high expectations, but this novel turned out to be a wonderful surprise It is well written and the translator did an excellent job.LotSoT is basically a historical science fiction , slightly different from steampunk, since time travel is involved Some parts are set in the future but the majority of the plot actually takes place in our past, going back as [...]


    12. Japanese SF usually is hit or miss with me, but this was a okay tale.In the 26th century, aliens called ETs invade the earth, forcing humanity back to the moons of Jupiter Humanity builds Messenger AI s, overwatched by the computer Cutty Sark, and sends them back in time to try and stop the ETs from exterminating humanity when it is least able to fight back in the past.One such messenger, Orville, is sent back in time to pre feudal Japan, where he meets and falls in love with the Shaman Queen Hi [...]


    13. When I first heard that Viz Media would be creating a new imprint called Haikasoru which would publish an array of contemporary Japanese science fiction and fantasy stories for English speaking audiences, an imprint helmed and edited by famed sci fi writer Nick Mamatas great Lovecraftian work from him , I got really excited I ve always bemoaned the glut of international speculative fiction here in North America so it was nice to see an imprint dedicated to remedying that fact.The Lord of the San [...]


    14. In most of the science fiction I read growing up, changing the time line is generally a Bad Thing Killing Hitler in the cradle will simply result in a horrible dictator arising Actually, I don t think this was in an actual story, this was a Theory advocated by an acquaintance of mine who believed that this would be a logical consequence, though I m not sure why or how If you squish a butterfly while hunting a dinosaur, it can result in long lasting and unexpected repercussions and also incorrec [...]


    15. In my search for a hard scifi book, I somehow ended up on Haikasoru one of the few companies who tries to bring Japanese sci fi and fantasy novels to America and beyond I really like the concept of the story time traveling soldiers who have to change the future from getting invaded by extraterrestrials, while also trying to unite mankind A lot of science fiction and a bit of romance here and there I really like how Ogawa showed us the struggles and intense emotions of Messenger who tries so hard [...]


    16. I just finished reading The Lord of the Sands of Time, and though I enjoyed reading it, I can t at all decide how I feel about it The story was involving, with some clever time travel plot structuring, and Lady Miyo was an excellent character, as was the fantastic Alexandre Orville felt like of an abstraction than a main character, though, making this book slightly difficult to connect with, and the ending felt like a cop out As a good sci fi adventure, I d recommend this book, but as a whole, [...]


    17. Time travel sci fi, translated from the Japanese Chapters alternate back and forth between 248AD Japan and various alternate universes along an ever splitting time line, some far in the future, some deep in the past, some recent yet fundamentally changed Ogawa manages to handle both the universe s quantum weirdness and the characters emotional intensity, a combination of skills something not every sci fi author can muster The telling is blessedly taut, and the translation seems strong a few phra [...]


    18. La idea central del libro me gust bastante, el viaje en el tiempo y las distintas ramas temporales creadas por los viajes de los mensajeros En particular el giro que da hacia el final del libro cuando descubren la verdad de su propia l nea del tiempo fue algo que no me esperaba.Sin embargo, siento que le faltaron cosas, la explicaci n de los ET que atacan a la humanidad me pareci simple, en un par de p ginas cierra el tema cuando creo que pudiera ser de mucho m s provecho y peso en el libro Me p [...]


    19. Was this book written specifically for me Time travel, alien race, robotic super creatures, artificial intelligence with sentience, feudal Japan, and the far future Yeah, this was my kind of book It also had a pretty good story of love and sacrifice The only negative marks I could give it are due to some translation issues I would say 99% of it is translated perfectly but that makes that 1% that isn t stick out like a sore thumb It felt a lot like All You Need Is Kill If you like one of thes boo [...]


    20. You might imagine you were picking up a manga from the cover, and you wouldn t be too far off The book plays fast and loose with time travel and logic and has its share of overwrought emotion It does rear its head occasionally with a clever idea or interesting commentary, but then it s quickly back to a taught and improbable battle for survival in whatever time the author felt like exploring next Through all of this, the book stays light on it s feet, never making a fatal misstep and moving too [...]


    21. I really, really liked this book I specially liked the author not giving away any of the details from the end of the book, you get the feeling you have it figured out and sort of just want to get it over with but then realize you were wrong, and that s a nice feeling.The story takes place across several eras and time streams, but nevertheless you never feel lost and that s something you don t see every day.The only thing I didn t like was the ending, it could ve gone a bit longer, feels a bit ru [...]


    22. I m not usually a fan of SF totally Team Fantasy and I got the impression from the blurb that this would be pretty heavy on romance and would potentially be unbearably saccharine but I decided to read it anyway since it was short and the non romance related premise sounded interesting Boy, was I glad I did The translated writing was easy to follow, the action engaging and this coming from someone with an almost non existent attention span and the romance kept to a bare minimum While some parts t [...]


    23. I was very impressed with this short work of time travel messing with history saga translated from Japanese the type of story for which I am always a sucker I think if it had been longer it would not have had the impact it had on me Not so much the writing but the evocation of a culture vastly different from my own I am new to Japanese SF and not into manga or Japanimation, so this is a great introduction to the literature of the fantastic that goes well beyond the fun monster flicks I loved as [...]


    24. This is quite possibly the most romantic sci fi novel I ve ever come across in my entire life An epic love story like no other the love for a person, a country, an idea, humanity itself in the face of extinction by the hands of an alien invasion and across the whole of space and time Gives the idea of love transcending time a whole new meaning By the end of this novel, I too was struck by love.


    25. I m sure there are hundreds of sci fi novels that include a heavy dose of romance But, until now, I don t think I ve ever read one This crazy hybrid of a book delivers science fiction hardware along with a compelling love story Recommended for anyone who would travel back to the dawn of time to save the person they love.


    26. A definite recommendation to anyone who likes time travel, especially the ones that present some form of interesting play on the conventions It is quite grim in tone, if a little detached when it comes to details of battles The ending is kind of weak, but it doesn t detract too much from a really solid piece of writing I d most certainly pick up of this author s work.


    27. Japanese translated time travelling science fiction I think it is best not to think too hard about the time travelling effects Instead focus on the great love story and the relentless foe What makes this interesting are the historical perspectives on early Japanese culture, feudalism, and mysticism.


    28. Quite a fun little story Some interesting flitting about in alternate time streams, as well as loves found and lost Thing is that it is all a little slight Also, I m not convinced by the style, though that could easily be that things have been lost in translation.I may have a look at some of Ogawa s other stuff later some of his other stuff is supposed to be better than this.


    29. No es mal libro, pero a mi gusto est medio plano Mucha descripci n de datos que igual no te importan, poca descripci n de los que s te importan y, v lgame la rebusnancia, la emoci n no es muy emocionante.Maybe I was not in the mood.
