    1. This book is a total change of pace from the previous books Like some parts of book 7 Mother Rosario , Kawahara treats the story in a classical SI FI way, going deep into fundamental questions about the implications of the new technological developements, new virtual diving machines, new worlds, the essence of the human conciousness that pleased me greatly but the book is somewhat boring Or I should specify that it s really boring at the start This book is 2 3 a Prologue to a plot to be develop [...]


    2. This is the first part of the Alicization saga and so there is a bit of a back story explaning the technology involved and sort of goes a little bit overboard on explanations, but I felt they it was pretty interesting This story takes place in a new world called underworld and this place really reinvents the series There are true hardships that take place and the game or wherever Kirito is at this point, which is realistic than Kirito could even imnagine, and takes on several aspects of reality [...]


    3. The Project Alicization arc starts off very strong I absolutely love the setting of Underworld It s quite reminiscent of Legend of Zelda, and Lord of the Rings the world building is excellent The real star of the show however is the concept of the soul translator The lengthy explanation of its functions create a fresh new setting for SAO, and I m very happy to see it go beyond video games to actual reality simulation I really enjoyed the philosophical and psychological themes that make you quest [...]


    4. It s quite different from previous books, it proposes questions on what is human, what is consciousness and what is reality, we only have a short time lapse to know what happened after the Death Gun and Mother s Rosario books with another BoB coming but the story focuses on this new machine that make us think what is real and about the time, it s a scary thing but a fascinating one The author tells us that he left behind much of the technical Videogame Slang to focus on telling the story and it [...]


    5. Sped through in almost one day had to stop to eat, shower and sleep Wish I hadn t finished it that fast because this new narrative arc is a blast XD I want to read the next one NOW The other novels in the main narrative series left me a bit meh with the exception of the GGO Phantom Bullet arc This one s powerful narrative, mind boggling technology and new interesting characters and story captured my undivided attention I wish I could read Japanese to get on to the next novel right away Uhm yes, [...]


    6. this arc is very upsetting, and it s going to go on for years IRL ten novels long, and this is just the first the first sao novel to follow the alicization arc is coming out in Japan next month so here s to five actual years of stressing out over this becauseASUNAthis poor girl.



    7. I finished reading Sword Art Online Volume 9 recently This is the start of the Alicization Arc, which, as of this posting, has not been adapted for an anime although one is in the making This was a novel experience for me as I watched the first four arcs before reading them technically, I ve only read the first two I will examine Plot, Character, and Polish before assigning a grade PLOTWhat I like about this arc, and this volume in particular, is the three layers of plots On one hand is the imme [...]


    8. Qu buen inicio de saga, se ores Al principio es un poco dif cil saber hacia d nde va la historia y en el medio se pone un poco lenta, pero la tercera parte narrada por Kirito es simplemente abrumadora y para m corrije cualquier error que haya visto a lo largo del libro.Me salt los otros 7 porque ya los hab a visto en el anime y s que no me pierdo mucho a n as pienso leerlos pronto pero este me llam porque s que el anime basado en este arco se estrena pronto y quer a ir adelante.En fin Kawahara c [...]


    9. Ok, so this volume is soooo different from the previous volumes 1 to 8.Because it s a hole new world and story If the previous volumes was telling you about SAO, ALO and GGO, now in this volume, it s not And if i can describe about what i really like the most from this volume is, the harem part of Kirito is not that much, even almost nothing, lol D I love itActually i m not really like harem story even tho SAO is not harem novel, and yeah I know it, but it s like harem in some part for me, Cmiiw [...]


    10. When I started reading this I had to go back and check if I was really reading SAO, In this volume almost everything we have come to expect from SAO is changed It is not a bad change I quite liked it once I got used to it And it reads just as easy as the other ones.Another thing that changed is the cast Of course we have our trusted hero Kirito but the rest of the group will not be in the spotlight fortunately we get some great characters in return It being the first of an new arc a lot of world [...]


    11. Once again, Kawahara does a very nice job of putting together a science fiction video game world with an entertaining story as well as a thoughtful background which leaves one thinking The characters are well done, with decent development throughout these novels Overall, I felt this book had an underlying message What is reality and what is not reality However, I think the story of this series is getting a tad repetitive in its scope but they should still start making this new arc into a season [...]


    12. The last half of the book is great, but the first 100 pages which act as a prologue for the whole Alicization story are plain boring Focus is back on Kirito, and the setting and story are cool No harem, also great No OP Kirito to a certain extent So, all in all, not bad at all Looking forward to the next one.


    13. A really interesting new arc I enjoyed the core of it and the theme of going further into reality and perception the new technology in this book is cool to read about The beginning was a bit slow for me but picked up after the exposition.Lots of woodcutting in this one.I ll be reading the rest of Alicization Finally, Kirito gets to add a guy to his crew


    14. The first SAO novel with never before seen content this marks the start of the beginning of SAO s official 4th arc Project Alicization Ugh just spent over an hour working on a review before accidentally deleting it Full review to come


    15. Absolutely loved this I was not able to put this down everything from the new world being described to new characters makes me want the next volume asap This story arc looks like it s going to be a long journey and I can t wait for it




    16. Well i prefer watching anime or movie than reading books But this book allowed me to imagine beyond my mind and its exciting


    17. Omg Kirito listens to Asuna He used the word pragmatic Now this arc, which appears to be longer then one book, has a new spin on things I admit the first few chapters had me confused Their is quiet a bit of science and phycology going on in this arc And dare I say, a matrix like mode as well Each of Reki s story arcs seems to be darker then the last as we delve in the mysteries of the online world While Underworld doesn t come across as dark as GGO or sad as the Sleeping Knights, I would say thi [...]


    18. Que decir ME FASCINO , cuando pens que S.A.O ya no me sorprender a viene el arco de Alicization , muy buena trama dejando atr s lo antes visto.El principio me de dejo contrariada, no entend a que estaba pasando Kirito ni o amigos de la infancia todo es un recuerdo por que no recuerda a sus amigos otra dimensi n , aunque la impaciencia me ganaba a ratos, cuando entend que el libro empezaba con kirito dentro de ese nuevo mundo virtual tan cercano a la realidad me pareci genial, una buena entrada.L [...]


    19. J avais pas mal d appr hension en commen ant ce nouvel arc notamment cause de quelques spoilers qui m en avait donn une mauvaise impression, mais apr s un d part mitig cette lecture s est r v l e tr s sympathique On retrouve Kirito dans un nouveau monde, ce tome nous permet de le comparer SAO entre autre De nous le faire conna tre C est un univers plus complexe, un jeu l allure de r alit et la fa on dont Kirito y a t introduit est int ressante J ai vraiment appr ci ma lecture et j ai de grandes [...]


    20. Sword Art Online Alicization BeginningReki KawaharaThis book is the beginning as the title suggests of the Alicization Arc, and so far the longest arc The book is about our protagonist Kirito going to the a new world deemed the , but the problem is he doesn t know how got there, or why He eventually meets an old friend named Eugeo, and this is the two s journey to find and save Eugeo s childhood friend Alice But, Kirito has another objective, to contact the outside world and to get out of this v [...]


    21. Alicization story arc, start and this one is gonna take a few volumes, get ready The series takes a leap forward from what its done before, and attempts for classic SciFi serious stuffTakes plenty of time to actually get there There s a very lengthy prologue, then Kirito has pages and paaaaages of techno babble explanations for Asuna was seriously waiting for someone to say reverse the polarity at one point, but alas view spoiler followed by a crazy ex Laughing Coffin attack on him IRL, which s [...]


    22. 4.5 stars I m pleasantly surprised Maybe it was the fact that this is the first time I read an arc at this story that I haven t watched the anime, maybe it is my love of mysteries or the fact that it touches on the philosophical aspects of AI and consciousness, but I think this is without a doubt the best entry in this series till now I only hope the end of the arc would be even better This time, Kirito is in a new setting, with new characters With new VR technology that blurs the lines between [...]


    23. Sword Art Online Alicization Beginning by Reki Kawahara is a novel about a person named Kirito who finds himself trapped in another virtual reality due to an assault, but this time it is one that is extremely realistic When he visits a NPC Non player character village, he meets Eugeo and Selka He then finds out that everyone has a sacred task, and that his is to cut down the Gigas tree, which task had been handed down for 7 generations After finding a giant silver sword, Kirito destroys the swor [...]


    24. I first watched TV adaptation of part 1 and 2 of this series It wasn t much other than hot blooded adventures and other RPG story cliches, but certainly was very entertaining Then as part 3 hasn t been released in animation, I proceeded with novels in Chinese translation, and found it started to feel different The tone is a little philosophical, maybe, and the author s ambition to write something with depth is clear with the exploration of possibilities of soul simulation and duplication, a new [...]


    25. Kirito yet again trapped in a VR world due to an unfinished business from Phantom Bullet Arc.The pacing is great, it doesn t feel rushed at all unlike the 1st couple of author s books The writer slowly takes the time for world building and trying connect the story with the previous books so the pacing might be a bit slow at first And since this is the start of a new arc there are many unexplained mysteries which probably will be addressed on future books It s also crammed with pseudo science stu [...]


    26. So I had some difficulty starting this book The first 50 pages were jarring and I was not interested Then the story went back to the real world and I got to read what Kirito, Asuna, and Sinon were up to That got me excited again Then a main character got injured and then it was back to the new virtual world Ugh, then I had a hard time continuing I fell asleep several times reading the next couple chapters I powered through and finally started getting into it By then end of the story I wanted So [...]


    27. Another nice read new concepts, new ideas and insights on yet VMMORPG topic in relation to reality The story seems promising since I have not started Volume 10 and 11.I also noted that the author seemed to be very well versed in some difficult concepts like Quantum Brain Dynamics which even in is not an article of full blown details As usual, the discussion of reality versus virtual world is again as refreshing as the previous 8 books.
