Needless to say, I was curious…I have to admit, similarities between these two books are undeniable. They both are based on the same idea of teenagers forced to participate in a de

After reading the supposed original, I could say that the plot for both books are pretty similar but Koushun Takami's novel is of an entirely different league it's quite incomparable. "Battle Royale" does have a very colorful and well handled take on the the fight to the death premise than anything I have ever read be

read バトル・ロワイアル バトル・ロワイアル review Å eBook or Kindle ePUB One another until only one survivor is left standing Criticized as violent exploitation when first published in Japan where it then proceeded to become a runaway bestseller Battle Royale is a Lord of the Flies for the 21st century a potent all. A busload of Japanese teenagers is kidnapped and dumped off on an island where they are forced to fight to the death until one student remains all in the name of The Program Which of the 42 students will surviveI remember hearing about the film version of Battle Royale ages ago but never managed to watch it Seeing that a lot of people compare The Hunger Games to Battle Royale I figured I should give it a shot and I m uite glad I did Battle Royale is The Hunger Games with gore and without the annoying love triangleBattle Royale takes place in an alternate present where Japan is largely a totalitarian police state Every year a class is chosen for The Program a free for all that makes Thunderdome look like an episode of The Care Bears Each student is given a backpack and a weapon and turned loose one at a time To make things interesting there are forbidden zones on the island and anyone caught in one is killed instantly via the explosive collar they are all forced to wear Sound goodPeople are killed right off the bat and the book never lets up I had a pretty good idea who would survive based on who got the most time on screen but the journey was well worth it Kazuo and Mitsuko both needed their hash settled from the opening bellI mentioned gore earlier and this book has than its share of gruesome killings Hatchets to the face many many stabbings gunshots galore and lots of betrayal and deception on top of itThe writing was also pretty good Aside from a couple very minor hiccups I would never guess it was a translation In the afterword Takami mentions Stephen King and Robert Parker as his big influences and I think it shows in the text The explosive collars are straight out of the Running Man movie not from the novel The intro reminded me of the intro to Needful ThingsSince I m only giving it a four I guess I ll complain about a couple things Shuya didn t have much personality enough though he was supposed to be the hero Kazuo was overly powerful and seemed to have unlimited ammo It was hard to keep track of who was who at times because of similar sounding names However all these were minor complaints and I found Battle Royale to be uite an enjoyable read Four out of five stars

read バトル・ロワイアル バトル・ロワイアル review Å eBook or Kindle ePUB 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. I first read this story in Manga form a few years ago one of only two manga series I ve enjoyed and I uickly became addicted to these characters and their individual stories Whilst reading Battle Royale you go on an intense journey into the minds of nearly all 42 students and discover what it is about them that enables normal high school kids to kill their classmates or decide not toI d recommend reading the manga before or instead of the novel for a few reasons For one it makes it a lot easier to keep up with all the similar sounding names when you have a face to put to it For another thing you don t have to struggle through a translation that isn t too smooth I felt there were times during the novel where the sentences were disjointed andor abrupt it wasn t a huge problem for me but I know it will annoy some other readers Though I appreciate that the violence in Battle Royale might make some readers ueasy I never found it to be gratuitous like a lot of other people did It s not unrealistic that when people are put into a situation of great fear and distrust they will go to any lengths to survive It s biological If you re in a kill or be killed situation then nine times out of ten you will choose your own life And if you re in a situation where someone with a gun may or may not be trying to kill you are you going to ask uestions first and risk getting your head blown off Maybe But you re either braver or sillier than most thenI am going to compare this to The Hunger Games though not because I want to make a statement about how Collins plagiarised she probably didn t and even if she did no one s going to prove it either way Their similarities just make them good books to use for a comparison fight to the death teenagers isolated arena etc The Hunger Games as I m sure you all know focuses on Katniss and her life the other characters both good and bad are seen solely through her eyes In Battle Royale the perspective changes freuently I liked it but it may infuriate some and looks at many different types of peopleThough both stories are considered dystopias I think The Hunger Games world is developed and easier to picture as a reality I have a very clear idea in my mind of the Capitol and the districts I don t have such a vivid image of this oppressive Japanese state though I don t really think that s the point For me Battle Royale is a much psychological story it looks into the dark depths of the human mind and doesn t censor anything it finds I think it s frightening because of the collars that can be made to explode at any time because of the time limit set on the players and because all the participants are classmates I also felt there was a greater sense of urgencyOn the other hand I think The Hunger Games is a emotional read BR is an interesting exploration of the human mind I liked finding out why the students were able to do what they did but the only death that really filled me with regret was view spoilerShinji Mimura hide spoiler
