Battle Royale: The Novel
Tapa blanda Compra verificada. After reading the battle royale book and the mangas, i’ve heard about this “expansion”. Art, stories, even the final speech of the autor. Only for big fans. I have to say that I had already read the hunger games before I started reading this book, so the originality was kind of lost for me. Having said that, I was expecting much more coming from this book. There are way too many characters with Asian names, so it was difficult for me too keep track of who they were and what they were doing.
Furthermore, some of them are introduced in one chapter and given a background story just to die in the end I felt that was a total loss of time. Just to conclude, I didn’t connect with any of them at all. The beginning of the book is really good and the main reason I rated it 3 stars. From page on, I did not feel the need to keep reading, I just didn’t care about what happened to these characters.
There were though some plot twists towards the end that made the story a little more interesting. After I read the hunger games I decided I wanted to read this book, after all it did come out before the hunger games. I absolutely loved this book for a few reasons. First I loved the fact that it not only focused on a large group of kids, but it also gave inside to their stories and their perspective while in the game. It not only gives you an understanding of the kids, but it gives the book character.
I was intrigued by Shogo the most, and he was definitely my favorite character until the very end. We have this guy who is mysterious and a transfer student. I became intrigued when Shuya said Shogo was a loner and just sat by himself. That scene of him attempting to open a window in the bus really caught my attention.
Seriously, this book is so brutal, as many of the killings are merciless, especially those performed by Kazuo and Mitsuko. To see that these two kids were troubled on their own and then to have no heart to just kill their classmates and then have Kazuo kill Mitsuko just wow.
Shinji was another of my favorite characters, to have this one kid who is absolutely smart enough to hack into the government system and create a plan to blow up the school and those running the program, incredible. His death was just heartbreaking, as his plan was so close to being completed.
What I love about the author is that he does a great job at reminding you that these are ordinary kids. And nonchalantly he reminds you of their age as he occasionally throws it in the text.
It just makes this book much more brutal, you have these 42 kids whose class was randomly selected to kill each other off because the government said so as it is in their best interest.
Imagine not being able to trust your best friends, or most of all, imagine having to kill them to save yourself. To see how these kids kill each other and how the author describes, in detail, the death of each child, definitely left me speechless. I definitely recommend this book, especially to those who love dystopian books; it is definitely hard to put down once you start.
My downsides to this book: Without this, the author could have definitely made it much more difficult for the reader to guess who would win. I think one thing needs to be made clear because a lot of reviews seem to be looking at this as following the dystopian trend set by The Hunger Games: So any comments about a lack of originality do not belong here. Okay, this is a dark dystopian society in which teenagers are forced to fight to the death.
This is a premise that had been used before by The Running Man and others. But Battle Royale brings something new to the table by having the fight ring participants be children and by having them face off against their friends. Despite the similar premise, Battle Royale and The Hunger Games focus on very different aspects of the competition, and I think which book you prefer will depend largely on your personal taste. Battle Royale focuses much more on the morality of the game, and many students didn’t want to kill anyone.
Many students tried to find a way to beat the system. In THG, the tributes pretty much accept that they have to kill to survive. Battle Royale also focuses very effectively and poignantly on the prisoner’s dilemma.
Many students didn’t want to fight, but killed because they were afraid of the others or else didn’t reach out to the others because they were afraid. Like the prisoner’s dilemma, the students didn’t get the chance to talk to one another before being armed, so they couldn’t safely get together and try to cooperate to get out of the game.
This is used very well, with some very sad deaths. Also, in Battle Royale, more of the characters fighting in the contest are fully developed. This makes their deaths more poignant. If you’re interested in a story that looks at the competing bonds of friendship and survival, I think you might prefer Battle Royale.
In The Hunger Games, there is more emphasis on the romantic aspect as well as a theme about what is “real” on reality tv. Gana dinero con nosotros. Todos los derechos reservados.
