Book Description

1 Sep 2005
Japanese horror about twelve strangers who find themselves as actors in a perverse reality show from which only one is permitted to emerge alive. Stranded in a desert, fed psychotropic drugs by a media crew that may or may not be the real puppet master in the game, the group gets drawn into a nightmare reminiscent of Lord of the Flies.

I agree with the previous reviewer that this is a
fully engrossing read. I managed to read it in a day as I couldn't get it out of my mind when I put the book down. It was incredibly edgy and I read the last half of the book on my own at night, which I probably wouldn't recommend. It's got to be the most exciting novel I've read in a long time, thoroughly absorbing. Fans of the novel "Out" by Natsuo Kirino should give this a go, I think they evoke a similar feel of involvement and emotion for the reader. I'm trying hard to find someone else I know that is a fan of exciting modern fiction who will give this a go now, so I'm not alone in reading this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not for everyone 2 Feb 2011
Any potential reader of this novel must satisfy the proviso that they are ok with some very disturbing, graphic horror of the psycho-killer variety.

Once over that hurdle, this begins as a shipwreck scenario of 9 or so unremarkable people that becomes a tense cat-and-mouse game that thunders on at breakneck speed to the end. It is set in the Australian outback. The peculiar environment makes for a great setting that is unpeeled to the characters, with the reader accompanying their every step.

The periodic messages on their 'game machines' make this a page turner for the reader, with the characters drip fed information that unravels the motives of the game and what lies in store for them!

The ending to the bizarre and horrifying story has been resplendently crafted by Kishi, and rewards the reader for getting to the end.

5.0 out of 5 stars Certainly Not A Bungled Effort!! 28 July 2009
Hearing that this book was like battle royale was what swayed me into buying, expecting an entertaining but predicatable romp, i layed down before sleep to read! Big mistake! I was instantly hooked! Excellent descriptions of the surroundings and characters really make this exciting novel burrow into your mind, as the plot unfolds you get sucked deeper and deeper into the labyrinth. The characters are lively and undergo amazing changes. An amazingly written and horrifying story that grips with every page!

hugely suspenseful and gripping story, disturbing at times, and truly terrifying. a very good read, i recommend it, not for the light hearted or squeamish.
