2.0 out of 5 starsNeeds a good editor
Reviewed in the United States on September 12, 2019
This book would have been good except for the plot holes and word repetition. The author uses the same words and phrases so relentlessly that I finally lost interest a little over halfway through.
3.0 out of 5 starsWARNING: this is a NOVEL, not a history or an investigation

I bought the book thinking it would explain the history (or perhaps legend) of the man from Taured who showed up at Tokyo airport customs in 1954. This book is not that! It's a fictionalization that uses the basic story of the man from Taured, but relocates it to Chicago in 2014 and then makes up a plot from there. So that was disappointing.
As for the book itself, it's not a genre I particularly care for (supernatural/horror), but it's well-written, and did keep me engrossed enough to finish reading it. But it wasn't what I was hoping for.
4.0 out of 5 starsGood story, but strange parts....

This was an interesting story. I’ve always been fascinated by the Man from Taured. Most of the book wasn’t about that, per say, but expanded on the idea of the multiverse. It was disturbing at times, but overall a good book if you like science fiction.
Just FYI, “The Void” is like a demonic type presence, so if that stuff makes you uneasy, I’d pass this book up. It has bad language in it at times but it usually doesn’t last long. Parts of it creeped me out. There were some weird sexual parts....there was also parts where children are harmed. So, definitely a book for mature readers. I feel like I was kinda too sensitive for it but the story line kept me going. The narrator got on my nerves too. Especially the way she pronounced “forehead” lol
1.0 out of 5 starsProbably the worst book I have ever read

I was looking forward to reading this book based on the 'Man from Taured' urban legend. Although it started off well, it quickly deteriorated. It was so full of mistakes, I thought it had been badly translated to English from another language, but it wasn't. It was just riddled with jibberish. The story descended into nonsense and I struggled to finish it. Very disappointing.
