Koushun Takami's notorious high-octane thriller envisions a nightmare scenario: 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. A new translation by Nathan Collins.Binding Type: PaperbackAuthor: Koushun TakamiPublisher: HaikasoruPublished: 04/01/2014ISBN: 9781421565989Pages: 647Weight: 1.34lbsSize: 8.01h x 5.45w x 1.79d
