Tokyo Green is a stand-alone Science Fiction novel that explores not only the dangers of technology, but also the ability of technology to thrust humanity deeper into nature, making the future a worthwhile destination for all.
“Tokyo Green by C. D. Wight is a refreshing work of science fiction which takes a sidelong look at how the technology we are developing at breakneck speed today will affect our world in the middle of the current century. The effect of robotics and AI on employment is handled with keen insight as is the behavior of those corporations responsible for the proliferation of the technology. Ultimately though, the story is about how the individual is affected by conditions in this brave new world. Tokyo Green is an accomplished novel which I am sure will find broad appeal and I do not hesitate to recommend it.” —Readers' Favorite (5-Star Review)
“(Tokyo Green) displays the Japanese soul to the rest of the world, giving loving insight but also showing the problems. Of course there's also science (AI in this case) and the question of where's the difference between humanity and advances AIs. All in all, this was a perfect read for me.” —Katharina Gerlach, Goodreads
