    So, Steve officially didn't die. I didn't really think he would, but I was pretty worried when he was in the north tower. Steve's sudden best friend, Andy, did not fair so well; he died of complications from his concussion. (Ha, I knew it. He was a classic Redshirt.) I'm not sure why it never occurred to me before this book that Kashiwae-sensei totally invented Steve just for this book. I guess because I don't know New York well enough to know that his station is one of the closest ones to the W So, Steve officially didn't die. I didn't really think he would, but I was pretty worried when he was in the north tower. Steve's sudden best friend, Andy, did not fair so well; he died of complications from his concussion. (Ha, I knew it. He was a classic Redshirt.) I'm not sure why it never occurred to me before this book that Kashiwae-sensei totally invented Steve just for this book. I guess because I don't know New York well enough to know that his station is one of the closest ones to the World Trade Center? Poor Steve. He needs a boyfriend. I decided to set him up with Sam, whose life he saved in this book. Sam doesn't really have too much personality at the moment, but Steve seemed to like him all right, and Sam really seemed fond of Steve. (I just want Steve to end up with somebody. Pretty much anyone will do at this point, just as long as he can stop pining about Nobuyuki.) By the way, it turns out that the title is a reference to Blowin' in the Wind. Has she never listened to any music in the last thirty years, or what? Moving on... Overall, I thought the book was really good. It's the kind of book that kind of sucks you in while you read it, until you forget that it's not really happening. More than once I found myself surprised that the world around me was acting perfectly normal, because in my head it was still September 11. I've had this happen before when reading books about disasters, but I suppose this one affected me even more strongly because the actual events are still so clear in my memory. I did have a couple complaints with it though. The main one being the occasional American culture flubs, which are bad enough in the rest of the series, but in this one, they really pulled me out of the book. The worst one by far was when Sidney was thinking that there's never been a battle on American soil since...the Revolution. *headdesk* Even worse, this is exactly 40 pages after one of the other characters was thinking about Pearl Harbor. *is dead* The other problem was the repetitive writing style. This is nothing unusual, but no matter how many times Sidney calls Nobuyuki a 鈍感で自覚がないガキ, I'll never get sick of it. On the other hand, by the fourth time the narration told us how the towers hadn't budged in the '93 attack, I was a little annoyed. And I can't even count the number of times someone compared what they were seeing to a disaster movie. It got a bit old by the end; surely she could at least structure the sentence a different way so it's not exactly the same every time? (Shades of Silver Resonance...) Lastly...there was no Sidney/Nobuyuki cuteness. I didn't expect there to be much, but I did hope that we would see them get back home and hug or something at the end of the book. No. They barely even thought about each other all day; Nobuyuki kept worrying about Steve, and Sidney kept thinking about Rod. (WTF? The last time Sidney thought of Rod was like, when they broke up.) I guess I could see Sidney not really being worried about Nobuyuki, since he would be in the office all day, but why was Nobuyuki never worried? Any time the news reports would mention the firefighters and police at the scene, Nobuyuki would worry about Steve. Did he think that Sidney, as a detective, was just sitting at his desk, doing nothing? Yeah, we were worried about Steve, but that's because we know he's not the main character. Nouyuki's job is to be worried about Sidney. *sigh* I'm really curious where the series is going to go from here. I've been so busy thinking about how she would handle this book that I never thought about what would happen afterwords. Are we going to skip ahead a few months (as per usual), or will we have a book dealing with the immediate aftermath? (I hope not, I expect that would be really boring.) What's Nobuyuki going to be doing for the next few months? Surely Sky Travel won't have any business; will they lay everyone off? If so, what will the Japanese employees do? They can't collect unemployment, so will they go back to Japan?
