Another by Yukito AyatsujiPaperback.

I feel that they both were definitely needed to tell this story. I know Japanese literature is weird, but seriously, that seems too far fetched. Another novvel by Yukito AyatsujiH Even if I hadn’t known the plot in advance again, thanks to having watched the anime based on the bookI still would have gotten frustrated.

The story itself was interesting, and I was impressed to note just how closely the anime followed the events of the novel.

If you like creepy Japaneses high school stories with characters that are pretty messed up and a main character is so naive at times you wonder how they survive the rest of the book? They don’t give you enough information as they should in a detective novel so that you may solve the mystery as well.

Sell now – Have one to sell? The only thing that made me go, “Meh” for this book was the writing style. It’s equal parts thrilling, spooky, entrancing, and downright psychological; so it’s everything a thriller should be! As far as a mystery novel, it’s not so good.
