Libros que me han prestado: Battle Royale por Koushun Takami

por davidgp el 16/08/2007

Ayer me prestaron este libro del cual yo ya había visto la adaptación cinematográfica. No me había disgustado, a ver que tal está la novela.

Battle Royale

De la contraportada

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 with weapons and forcer to kill one another until one survivor is left standing.

Criticised as violent explotation when first published in Japan – where it then proceeded to become a runaway bestseller – Battle Royale is Lord of the Flies for the 21st century, a potent allegory of what it means to be young and (barely) alive in a dog-eat-dog world. Made into a controversial hit movie of the same name, Battle Royale is already a contemporary Japanese pulp classic, now available for the first time in UK.
