This is a novel I had on a reading list many many years ago and only recently discovered I still had a digital copy hiding in my archives. For many readers Japan Sinks is an exciting and devastating narrative. For others, less so: it is science fiction or perhaps more accurately, speculative fiction. The plot is simple: a shift in the earth’s tectonics causes Japan to slide into the depths of the ocean.
Japan Sinks makes a great movie: death, destruction, earthquakes, volcanoes, mass evacuation, heroes, but no Godzilla. I understand there is to be a Netflix anime treatment coming up later this year as well as the earlier film treatments.
