I m not really sure what happened with this series of 3 stories It only takes a few pages before the readers brain settle comfortably into the futuristic world of the story, but the subject matter was anything but comforting Initially, this marked the story out as an edgy perspective A fifteen year old babydoll prostitute with a sad background of paternal sexual abuse, is intentionally burnt alive by a psychopathic man who deletes his memories Like the 6 million dollar man, 15yo Rune is rebuilt [...]
This book started off really strong It sucked me into it with its interesting descriptions of everything, but mostly with the female character that we are introduced to It was quite fascinating reading about how she survived a very fucked up incident in her life I was very excited to read about how she would go on from that point in her life and what she would do to exact her revenge, or justice The first book does a great job of really instilling the sciencey and futuristic elements of science [...]
I didn t actually finish this book I may go back to it at some point, but for now I am done with it.It s hard to assign fault when reading a translated novel Is it a bad novel or a bad translation I have a feeling that with Mardock Scramble it s a combination of the two The book has lots of good ideas going on, but the actual flow of the story and the writing style is boring A hundred pages in and not caring at all about any of the characters or what s happening in the story generally means that [...]
Tells about a young girl who was abused by her father and became a prostitute The scene is a dytopia, in which the heroine is saved from death and and now has a physically advanced cyborg body We see a sad world filled with incredible high tech The storyline was jarring It includes child abuse, violance, hopelessness, rejection by society, murder and twisted characters in every possible way The characters are unique The heroine s strength and the relationship between her and the universal tool O [...]
I probably would have enjoyed this a bit as an animated thing But the level of depravity this sinks to was utterly and completely horrifying I don t think you can be too prepared for that going into this I had to stop after the first book.
Book 1 of 3 Since the US edition was published with all three books in one yay omnibuses , I decided to break down my reviews book by book since there is a LOT of action in each different volume I also used the original art for each volume since it s not included in the US edition and I like this art better.That said, this first book in the first trilogy of the Mardock saga is a refreshing slap of cold water in what s been a rather tepid pool of sci fi novels around the world within the last dec [...]

I m always amazed at how intense and dark Japanese light novels are This is a cyberpunk novel in the best sense of the genre Large megacorporations, amoral hustlers, innocents with great power, everyone scrambling for a place in the world.If you like cyberpunk Anime, I would egg you on to read this book.
Interesting plot, but much too long Good characters.
I can honestly see why there s a bunch of mixed reviews for this novel This novel actually consists of three parts.The first part was amazing, and I remember being fascinated by all the technology and the characters, especially Balot and Oeufcoque I actually had read part of the manga first, and I was completely mind blown by the fact that there was a novel and rushed to read it But honestly, this was a really lengthy novel The second part is where the novel fell short of my expectations I had r [...]
Pues este es un poco diferente a los que hab a leido, se trata de una onda cyberpunk noir por llamarle de alguna manera sobre Rune Balot, una prostituta de 15 a os a quien Shell, su due o , decide asesinarla al quemarla viva dentro de un carro, las cosas no funcionan como quer a y Balot es salvada por el Doctor Ester y Oeufcoque Penteano un rat n dorado en serio quienes le dan una segunda vida dentro de la iniciativa Scramble 09 algo as como protecci n a testigos, solo que utilizando tecnolog a [...]
.Wow it s a good book, it really makes you think about life, death and the point of living if you are into Sci Fi and Slightly horrifics then it s for you though as a warning it is not very censored and has stuff that will make you go, say what and want to hide in a broom closet Mardock Scramble is thrilling, murderous and at times seems to be falling of the deep end for fellow readers who would enjoy stories like this it s philosophical, scary, and at times will make you sit on the edge of your [...]
Weird, sad, up lifting and action packed I love the characters their resilience, their will to survive It makes me empathize with them Something kept bothering me about the translation I wish a better translator was hired I felt that some points that needed to come across from the author were lost in translation.Despite that i still enjoyed reading it This book is definitely not for everyone because they would say its boring, they don t understand, badly translated and so forth However if u are [...]
Tow Ubukata s sci fi thriller starts out with a bang, throwing a crew of vicious criminals, cool tech, and nifty sci fi ideas together in a motley stew and moving it along with a variety of nifty, ultra violent action sequences, but it eventually bogs down with long bouts of philosophizing and inaction, nearly grinding to a halt with an interminable sequence wherein the heroes enter a casino with the intention of cleaning it out it s something like 300 pages out of 775 that falls terribly flat f [...]
Do you like egg puns, cavalier treatment of incest and paedophillia, terrible world building, and card by card descriptions of a hundred rounds of blackjack No, no one likes that To say that this isn t good would be an understatement In places it s at the level of entertainingly bad that allows a satisfying amount of complaining, but the part of the plot that takes place in a casino is one of the dullest things I have ever read Additionally, I suspect that the translation isn t doing it any favo [...]
I find it very interesting Aside from it is full of action and mystery there is a drama you wouldn t find annoying at all The way Ubukata named the characters not only the way he describes them in the book, the setting which btw is pretty awesome and the plot itself is to be noted and appreciated I would never in the world have thought to read such story where everything jibes it is dyspotia type and sometimes I find it hard to imagine given the genre.Still making time to find and watch the movi [...]
Unlike many of the reviewers, I first watched the 3 movie anime series and as a result, I wasn t bogged down at the slower parts of the novel, mainly the lengthy casino section It served as backstory and narrative into the characters than was provided in the movies Overall both the book s and movies are extremely similar with only minor differences I think it s worth checking out.
I can t remember the last time I bailed on a book I m pretty stubborn masochistic about reading through to the end I like the premise enough to track down the manga and anime, but this prose is an awkward mess keeping me from relating to the characters 86 pages is enough.
A good book, it had some very in depth poker scenes, and I feel as if the translation was the biggest letdown Time to watch the anime
It has some interesting ideas about cyborg augmentation and I like how it uses its egg theme throughout the book even if it s a bit heavy handed.
Wasn t Bad, the massive chunk of casino scenes in the middle made it drag on way to long, cut that out and would have been a great book.
It started off really well and had some good ideas , but really got bogged down with that card playing bullshit that was a good idea in itself but just went on forever
