Battle Royale: Remastered

The plot was great, it moved at a good pace, there was a lot of action sequences the violence in this book doyale quite horrific but I loved it! It was the characters that were my major problem. I found it hard to connect with any of them and perhaps it was because of the language translation.


Some of the English was pretty bad and that affected my enjoyment of the book. The main enemies in the book were great though, I loved to hate them. There was also a lot of insta-love or unrequited love in this book, which got a bit ridiculous as time went on.

Battle Royale by Koushun Takami

Overall this book was okay. I loved the plot and the violence but the characters and some of the writing were a let down. I would still recommend this to others if they are looking for an action book!

This book is just filled with pages of suspense and drama, every page is a librl turner. I gurantee you would find it the same.
