Kawahara is a writing machine. I was afraid picking it up that it would feel like a regurgitation of his other stories or that it would feel like his third series that was an after thought. After reading it, I must say that I was wrong. I felt like there were no similarities at all to Sword Art O...

Surprisingly well written and deep

- Hardcover with color illustrations. Illustrations throughout the book were smaller than usually in a light novel and were surrounded by a thick black border (why???).
- Pov was 3rd person and alternated between Minoru and the Biter.
Minoru Utsugi is a troubled young man. When he was younger he su...

"The Isolator" is a latest young-adult/light-novel from one of the contemporary superstars of the genre, Reki Kawahara, most famous for the "Sword Art Online" series of books.
The Isolator is a traditional light-novel. For those who read Sword Art Online though, this book is not alike; whereas SAO...

So far, I've only read two light novels that I absolutely couldn't stand- this one and Maid Machinegun. While the other was bad because of ordinary ineptitude, however, The Isolator actively infuriated me. First of all, the fact that the villain here is a cannibal that only eats fan service fodde...

This is easily the best Reki Kawahara novel to make it into English. Hero Minoru is neither a sad-sack like Haruyuki (Accel World, Vol. 1: Kuroyukihime's Return) nor is he a Gary Stu like Kirito (Sword Art Online: Aincrad), and his plight is understandable. There are a variety of female character...

THE ISOLATOR, POWERED BY THE SOLITUDE. SOON TO BE A MAJOR MOTION PICTURE DIRECT TO SCI-FI CHANNEL BY ASYLUM STUDIOS. (view spoiler)[ I lost it when the guys head turned into a megalodon (hide spoiler)]
Honestly it's quite generic but Reki has gotten to be a very good writer and it kept me highly engaged. I'll give this a weak...

Another fantastic book by Reki Kawahara that has a different feel to his other series, although still planted in sci-fi genre.
As it's the first book in the series, most of the book was character introduction and world building but it doesn't feel over the top or forced. Most things at this stage...

Minoru Utsugi is alone... or, at least, he wants to be. Ever since a tragic incident in his childhood, Minoru has wanted nothing more or less than absolute solitude- and he may get that wish.
When mysterious orbs known as "Third Eyes" come down from outer space, they go inside human bodies and giv...

I think The Isolator is a hard one to recommend because it skews towards an older crowd in instances (ultra violence in certain scenes) while also remaining very clearly a piece of YA lit (you see this in some of the characterization and problems the characters deal with).
The premise is interesti...
