Teaser Tuesdays


Quote a couple of spoiler-free sentences from the book you’re reading to tempt others.

"In a nutshell, let's see Battle Royale is-you know how your usual pro wrestling match is one on one or between paired up partners, well with Battle Royale, ten or twenty wrestlers all jump into the ring. And then you're free to attack anyone, one on one, or ten against one, it doesn't matter."
Battle Royale by Koushun Takami p.12

Is this the book that the film Battle Royal was based on (where a bunch of kids get stuck on an island and kill each other?).

One in the same; have you seen it? I'm hoping to watch it after I've read the book, both for Tanabata's Hello Japan mini-challenge this month.

A title to recommend to my husband! He loves this sort of thing be it in a book or on the telly...gives me an excuse to slink off with my own book.

Darlene, great - love to recommend books to the whole family! Also, you never require an excuse to slink off with your on book...

Yes, I loved it - it's pretty gruesome though!

Looking forward to it, Polly! I haven't had nearly enough gruesome of late.
