It's not at all diminished on the second read, after years of building it up in my mind. I was doing a lot more thinking when I read it this time, and I was really quite impressed by the sheer number of ideas Yamashita took.

Through the Arc of the Rainforest is presented in a genre is defined as a piece of literature which seems to take place in a realistic setting on the surface, but fantasy elements arise when the story unfolds. Either the character/s can break the rules of the real world, or the world is invaded by something so strange, we can’t believe that.

The book is set in Brazil, and built around the aforementioned magical plastic, which occurs naturally in the earth. Because Through the Arc of the Rainforest is, at its heart, an environmental morality tale, you can probably guess how that particular plot thread progresses, but the value of the book isn’t in its morals.

Oddly enough, it’s.
