Koushun Takami ↠ バトル・ロワイアル book

バトル・ロワイアルKoushun Takami's notorious high octane thriller is based on an irresistible premise a class of junior high school students is taken to a deserted island where as part of a ruthless authoritarian program they are provided arms and forced to kill So unputdownable it's ridiculous Took a 4 hour plane ride i intended to sleep on and instead read all 624 pages of this; and while I'm a fast reader even I'm not THAT fast usuallyBasically as everyone else is saying it's a book about one class of Japanese junior high kids put on an island with a small bag of supplies a random weapon grenade? crossbow? Uzi? fork? an exploding tracking collar and orders to kill kill kill Nice fascist dystopia world you see around the edges of this place but it doesn't go into so much detail you're distracted from the good stuffAnd the good stuff is watching all the little petty relationships of being 15 suddenly twisted horribly by the extreme fear of knowing only one person will be allowed to live It's ridiculous and it's full of eye popping gut wrenching violence You keep getting thrown into the head of someone and given their whole mental landscape for maybe 1 or 2 chapters before they die in some completely awful way which means you root pretty hard for some people you know are doomed you find yourself almost applauding the death of some stuck up jerks and then feel bad about it and you watch helplessly as some real sociopaths mow down one kid after anotherMore than anything this is like watching a horribly violent low budget exploitation movie you see at midnight somewhere there's ZERO surprise it was almost instantly adapted into a movie It's pulp suared but like many things this aggressively pulpy it's got a message under there as well Great entertainment for people with a tolerance for high amounts of violence but also a really well done study of the psychology of extreme fear and some insights about totalitarianism as well
