Absolute Solitude - Kawahara Reki's 3rd Book

I read that he is going to rewrite his Absolute Solitude web novel into a book, so wondering if anyone is interested in taking a look at what it is all about?

I would call this a hero and villain story, where you get to see both side's viewpoint.

Currently there are 3 chapters of this book on his web site, which might be taken down when he starts to make them into book form.

If there is enough interest, I might translate a few parts for you to check it out.

PS. I am putting this post here since it's sort of same author, and not really a novel teaser thingy.

I'd be interested in it.
What exactly is it about? I tried putting the prologue through Google Translate, and it seems to talk about aliens.

Could you maybe give a synopsis about it?

I read chapter 1 a while ago so only remember some bits. Just in case anyone who doesn't want to know too much detail, will put it in a spoiler.

Spoiler! :
Basically, in 2009, tiny alien metors fell on earth and there are two types of them. They both give people hit by them special powers based on their hosts. One type, the highest number of the two, give it's host violent and chaotic powers. The other type, in a few numbers, give the host special power without the violent or chaotic control.

Our main guy is the absoulte solitude hero, and has the power to reject anything that tries to harm him. The first chapter villain is the Biter, which tries to bite through anything, and loves the crunch of human bones.


Again, you will see the story through both the hero and each villain's eyes/mind. This series is a bit hard for me to translate due to this fact, so I will probably just do a few parts if any.

I really would like to see this since in dont know and probably from your plot preview doesn't mention anything about SAO or AW but i saw once that Kawahara Reki said in an interview that if he was to "unite" both worlds maybe its from the point of a 3rd series so anyway i may give it a shot

It has nothing to do with SAO and AW.

Different cast, different world, different story.
Just the same author.

Oh, Absoltute Solitude is already licensed by Yen Press as well - that was fast - is it a good read, too?

So, does the story play in 2009 or is that only for the back-story?

So is the genre of the story more like a Horror novel?
