Day 1: Best book you've read this year.
Hands down, it's Battle Royale by Koushun Takami:
I absolutely loved this book! The buzz on the internet is that The Hunger Games was based on this book, which is translated from Japanese. Since I have not yet read The Hunger Games, I cannot comment on that aspect. However, this book is not intended for Young Adults. It is extremely violent and graphic. If you are a fan of survival stories and fast-paced thrillers and are not put off by extreme violence, I highly recommend it! You won't be disappointed!
