I picked this up in anticipation of the feature film.
I struggled with the flow, storytelling, illustrations, and ultimately gave up after 1/3 through it due to too many other titles competing for my limited attention.
I liked the pace and the setting so I'll make another attempt at reading it later.

The only volume of the ghost in the shell line that I care return to. A brilliant mix of action, adventure, violence, and sexuality, with probing and interesting a lot concepts explored involving the psychology, human cognition, evolving moralities in technological societies, cybernetic theory, simulation, reality, technological evolution, etc.

It's a bit tricky to follow, but the concept and action scenes compensate for that
