Koushun Takami, Translated from the Japanese by Yuji Oniki, VIZ,LLC, 2003, Softcover, 616 pages.





Back Cover:


Koushun Takami's notorious high-octane thriller is based on an irresistable 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 until only one survivor is left standing. Criticized as violent exploitation when first published in Japan--where it became a runaway best seller--Battle Royale is a 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 the English language.



Condition: Good,  Book shows signs of having been read and has light general wear to the cover and page edges.
