Ten Billion Days and One Hundred Billion Nights
November 15, 2011
Plato, Buddha, Christ—what brings these men to the far future to witness the end of the world? Reads L to R (Western Style). Ten billion days--that is how long it will take the philosopher Plato to determine the true systems of the world. One hundred billion nights--that is how far into the future he and Christ and Siddhartha will travel to witness the end of the world and also its fiery birth. Named the greatest Japanese science fiction novel of all time, Ten Billion Days and One Hundred Billion Nights is an epic eons in the making. Originally published in 1967, the novel was revised by the author in later years and republished in 1973. “‘Ten Billion Days and One Hundred Billion Nights,’ that's a lot of time, but Ryu Mitsuse covers all of it in under 300 pages, and the result is quite fabulous.” –Alan Cheuse, All Things Considered
I can’t finish this. Now we have Judas being 60 years on when only ONE of the disciples was even an adult.
Ryu Mitsuse is also the one that trashed Andromeda Stories so this is yet another Haikasoru fail. One of those books that everyone reads and thinks is good because a dude wrote it.
It’s boring, pretentious, and sexualizes a girl, the ONLY girl that’s given any character.
