This is better than the last one, but it's still a slog to get through. Though our main character was a bit pompous, I was with him for a while, hoping that things would work out and he'd find out the reason behind everything.
But the book soon turned into...a rather miserable tour book to Japan? Really. We got some interesting but dismal passages on Japanese prisons, Japanese views of race, and even the Yakuza - none of which had anything do to with the mystery of our main character's identity.
By the end of the book I no longer cared if Taured was real, didn't care if our main character made it home or not, and really sort of hoped he may end up dead because I disliked him that much.
It is readable, but not the fun and entertaining book I was looking for at all.
Gaston wakes from a nap on a plane. Weird things have happened. Ok, so far you have my interest. Then the book spends a third of its time in a Japanese jail. Nothing important happens except that his country and the past he knew do not exist. He escapes and spends another third of the book with a stewardess from his flight. Here he learns of alternative dimensions from her brother. He also finds his past is not what he thought it was. There is a little action here with the Yakuza. He loses a finger and his stewardess girlfriend dies. He kills a man and then attempts suicide. Wakes up and discovers a he may be back in his original dimension. That's about it. The scenery is only bright spot. The book was terrible

However I could not warm to the characters, or the setting.
