Abstract:

"In the novel Ring, the videotape was the vendetta of Sadako, a tragic girl who could not be sated with simple revenge. In the sequel Spiral, a mutating virus displaced the tape and came to threaten the entire diversity of life. In this much-awaited conclusion of the Ring trilogy, everything you thought you knew about the story will have to be put aside." "In Loop, the killer mimics both AIDS and cancer, in a deadly new guise. Only one person, Kaoru Futami, asks where the disease could have originated. The youth, mature beyond his years, must hope to find answers in the deserts of New Mexico and the Loop project, a virtual matrix created by scientists. The fate of more than just his loved ones depends on Kaoru's success." Though best enjoyed by fans of Ring and Spiral, Loop is also written as a stand-alone work.

Not really in the Ring trilogy, but confusing without prior knowledge.

by PYEsinc (WorldCat user published 2011-09-22) Fair Permalink

Rupu (English: Loop) is the so-called third book in the Ring trilogy, and it really has no relation to the other books.  No characters are in similarity, and this is a total disappointment.  Not much here to enjoy.  Two stars.
