    In short... I cannot wait for book 11. The Alicization arc was rather touching and as usual it is very detailed when it comes to thoughts and depictions. All comments on other 9 books applied, and I noticed that the author is good at choosing which time to fast-forward and which one to slow down and explicate. That makes it enriching. Even the descriptions of how the skills work and how the laws of the world operate are well done.

    So, after a couple of not very interesting books, this is finally getting better. The whole Alicization project is actually quite scary, and something I wouldn't want developed, as it sounds like it could easily get out of control. In this book we learn the truth behind the project Kirito is involved in, and what is the ultimate goal of this whole new virtual world we're seeing.

In this book we learn the truth behind the project Kirito is involved in, and what is the ultimate goal of this whole new virtual world we're seeing. And then, we return to Kirito, in his quest to find a system administrator and leave the game. He is still a very annoying character, and he is still the stereotypical 'I can do it all' kinda guy, so no news there. But I do like Eugeo, and the development he is slowly having as a character. Despite we know he is an AI, he does have some human growth of sorts and its interesting to see just how much he'll be able to change or not just to see Alice again. Im also really enjoying the whole build up of this world. Despite it all being fake and human created, the characters strike me as very real, and it's really interesting to see how they have developed the Taboo Index and how things work for them, and how they seem limited by it because of their programming.

    I find the Underworld wonderfully intricate and fantastic. The new technology is very interesting and inspires genuine consideration about what human consciousness is.

    There's a lot of explanation at the beginning of the book. Someone might consider it a flaw, but for myself, I like lengthy explanations if the purpose is to set the stage and let the reader into a whole another universe. The 10th light novel isn't just that though. Instead, after setting the scene, it brings us to the heart of the action, showing the progress Kirito and Eugeo are doing in the Underworld. The ending, of course, left me in anticipation for the 11th volume. If I had the entire ser There's a lot of explanation at the beginning of the book.

    Sword Art Online volume 10 is the second part of the Alicization arc, Alicization Running. Aside from Reki Kawahara's skill in general, I'm continuing to enjoy this arc because of how distinct it is from previous ones. First of all, it is split in two segments, one for Asuna and one for Kazuto. I like the first one because it has a genre shift to Mystery. Asuna has to put her head together with Silica, Suguha and Yui to find Kazuto so that they can rescue him.

Aside from Reki Kawahara's skill in general, I'm continuing to enjoy this arc because of how distinct it is from previous ones. First of all, it is split in two segments, one for Asuna and one for Kazuto. I like the first one because it has a genre shift to Mystery. Asuna has to put her head together with Silica, Suguha and Yui to find Kazuto so that they can rescue him. It can be seen as a flip of the alpha couple's situation at the start of volume 2, and, in fact, Yui points this out. She has a MUCH harder time of it than Kazuto. He was forwarded a picture taken in a publicly available server. She has to search for clues, piece them together, and make logical deductions that drift rather far into conspiratorial speculation. Then she has to devise a way to enter a private, highly secured, area. It is not action-y but it is awesome. Really, that scene was my favorite part of the book. The continuing development of the mechanics of Underworld fascinate me. It is a shame that SAO's haters don't read the light novels. Then they would see that Reki Kawahara's is not some hack terminally dependent on harem fanservice. There is a ton of thought and foresight and literary skill going into the science fiction here, and more goes into how it is set up and delivered through the narrative. There is this one scene in particular where a human talks with his fluctlight clone, and the clone has a critical case of Cloning Blues. It is genuinely unsettling. It is an existential terror. As for Kazuto's section, he is still inside Underworld where he goes by Kirito. This book is about the VR nerd part of him. He spends basically the whole of his section trying to figure out how the Underworld works, and he does it through experimentation. The OP Mary-Sue that haters insist that he is cannot be found here; he has three fights and two of them are against practioners with more experience than him. The later two are struggles and neither of them is a victory. Neither is the harem seeker his detractors deride him as present in this volume. On the contrary, he resolves to be a Celibate Hero out of faithfulness to Asuna. Trickster Eric Novels gives "Sword Art Online Volume 11: Alicization Running" an A+

    The Alicization arc—of which this is the second light novel—continues to be really, really good. Author Reki Kawahara is really showcasing some impressive sci-fi/tech conceptualization/execution skills here. I mean, wow wow wow, ideas! Granted, I have not kept a close ear on modern sci-fi/tech writing world. If I would think of a comparable series I'd look at Tad Williams's Otherland trilogy from the mid-90s, which is also about the last time I kept up with what would have been considered contemp The Alicization arc—of which this is the second light novel—continues to be really, really good. Author Reki Kawahara is really showcasing some impressive sci-fi/tech conceptualization/execution skills here. I mean, wow wow wow, ideas! Granted, I have not kept a close ear on modern sci-fi/tech writing world. If I would think of a comparable series I'd look at Tad Williams's Otherland trilogy from the mid-90s, which is also about the last time I kept up with what would have been considered contemporary sci-fi. (Otherland, for the record, is really damned good.) Even if Kawahara's tack isn't as unique as I presume, she has a deft skill in taking big concept ideas and making them coherent within the plot. Now, I'm definitely letting my enthusiasm—both of the series as a whole and of the concepts she's been riffing over the last two volumes—drive my score here. There are some bumps. The biggest is how plot advancement basically stops in its tracks when Kawahara uses large swarths of exposition to explain her concepts. Like, chapters worth of exposition where nothing is happening except inventors lecturing (with a bit of dialogue from our heroes) about the tech being used. I'm not sure where the line is between giving enough information to allow a reader to suspend disbelief, and becoming too enamored with those ideas that the writer gets lost in them, but Kawahara goes way over it. It's great that she has all this worked out in her head, but she could have waaaaay trimmed those explanations down to the barest of bones and we, as readers, would have been good. Especially because, frankly, these ideas—which are great, don't get me wrong—are basically fantasy. I took one of the easily Googleable ideas ("fluctlights") and found... one marginal scientific paper outlining the hypothesis, and a whole lot of Sword Art Online mentions. While it's cool that Kawahara found that marginal scientific paper and was able to do something pretty cool with it, like, we're still in fantasy sci-fi realms here. Keep the explanations brisk. But I don't give a fuck. Her writing is repetitive and I hate the weird romance subplot that's cropped up the last few chapters? I don't give a fuck. It's so good.

    So we're in the second volume of the Alicization story arc. I liked it. I admit that the first half of the book is full of a LOT of exposition but much like the first volume I've been enjoying learning about the way things work in the world and the tech and whatnot. Plus I want to see even more of Asuna and more of Rinko and what they might be up to. As for the rest -- Kirito and Eugeo doing their thing. It may have been a smidge fast paced, but it wasn't bad.

I certainly want to see where it is all going and how it works out. Verdict: if you like SAO -- worth the read. If you don't, you probably don't care enough to read this review anyway. If you're looking to start somewhere with SAO -- don't start here, go back to the beginning.

    I haven't given a 5 star to a SAO book in a while now, but this was a really great one. First half of it finally shines some light about what Alicization is and hints at some relations with the original Aincrad mess. I'm feeling these connections are going to be key, as there's a lot happening in the VR world that is unexplained. Reki Kawahara is rehashing the Accel World concept of "willpower over logic".

Looking forward to volume 11.

    This was an enjoyable follow up to the first book of the arc, but I did get a little bit bored two thirds of the way through the novel.

The characters were too easily able deduce certain aspects of the story. While I realize this series targets a young demographic, it felt far too easy for the characters to figure out what was going on and develop a plan that would succeed so easily. As far as the rest of the novel goes, I again appreciate Kirito not being "OP" like he was in previous arcs. The characters are still succeeding relatively easily, but it doesn't feel so cheap. A few new characters have been introduced, although it's hard to tell whether these will be characters that will be relevant in future books. After this novel, I plan to take a small break from Alicization and read something else, but I do plan on reading future novels. This book wasn't exciting enough to make me want to dive right into the next one, but I do plan on continuing the series.

    I took me a while to finish this one, not because it isn’t good just because I was too busy; that been said I enjoyed this one, we finally get some answers and some unexpected revelations, around half of it was real world story and intrigue with Asuna tracking down kirito and some serious and huge project. The second half is back in the VR world with exiting events and an awesome adrenaline full duel, some interesting facts about will power and the path to their respective goals.

    Wow, this one is really good. Sword arts are back! The story and characters are moving forward a lot. There are great scenes on Asuna's side and how she learns of the events around her. This is a very sci-fi book indeed. It touches on the philosophical aspect of the series which I think works wells. Sweet action with Kirito and how he continues to live up to his values and past experience. Excellent. Wow, this one is really good. Sword arts are back!

    Another Great Book! While the beginning started off slow-paced, it was all GREAT knowledge to have about Kirito’s situation. When it refocused back on Kirito, it also shows even more development and some of the special capabilities of Underworld. As always, I am excited to continue this series!

    This volume just went nowhere for three quarters of the entire length of the book! It was so boring that I fell asleep in the middle of reading it! I am not kidding! How can this volume be so bad when volume 9 was so good!

We get to learn more about a few characters we've known for a while and meet new ones that are as well developed and three-dimensional as I've come to expect from the series.

    This volume explains all the mystery from the previous volume. It explains what happened to Kirito's real body and also explains the purpose of ‘Fluctlight’ or the need for a human like AI. In the Underworld, Kirito and Eugeo had started working on their goal. It was fun seeing Kirito and Eugeo act like best friends. In essence they are, after all they are with each other for nearly two years. I am dreading the ending of this arc.

(hide spoiler)] About the concept of cloning souls, its a terrific idea. Trying to create a true artificial intelligence with this method is clearly fascinating. Alicization Running and the previous volume completely enthralled me. The drawback, that is, is the long explanation/discussion; but that's necessary for the progress of the plot. There's so many speculations that my mind is forming upon reading this arc. I can't wait to read Volume 11 and hopefully its not about side stories once again.

The first part of the book is filled with explanations, and while that might sound boring, it did manage to clear up many of the mysteries of the last book.

Why was Kirito there and why didn't his friend remember him after he came back? What happened to him? I have a hunch that he was in a different quarter of the world, but I too lazy to check it out.

    The first half of this book is little more than exposition and a trite commentary on AI rights. The author really needed to weave in his info dumps (or omit them altogether; seriously, they served no purpose) and put the bit about AI rights into the novel itself. Y'know, like he's been doing with Yui since the first book? As always, the translation is shit and near unreadable, but I don't hold that against it.

    More experiments and discussions are included in this episode. The creation of "fruchlight," extraction of duplicated soul, and "Under World" is very interesting.
