Ringu リングG that grated on me was Asakawa s character I won t spoil anything but Way of the Warrior Kid 3: Where there's a Will... he ends up with a lot to lose in this story far than Ryuji and yete just lets Ryuji solve everything If you The Art of Darksiders Genesis had that much at stake you d think you d put a little effort into solving the mystery but time and again Asakawa went to pieces when Ryuji couldn t figure part of it out Figure it out yourselfI foundim to be a lazy and arguably superfluous character Aside from that the mystery is expertly crafted and the story is a real page turner It s a smart multi layered thriller and I love Suzuki s writing style it s simple but somehow also incredibly rich and engaging There are also periodic descriptions of aspects of Japanese behaviour and culture which I loved because it s a country I m not terribly familiar withAll in all Ring is a tremendous mystery novel that Stompin' at the Savoy: The Story of Norma Miller hooks you early on and never lets go I m currently reading book two in the trilogy Spiral and loving that too I can t wait to read Loop Check this series out I think you ll enjoy it This review is for theardcover edition The books dust wrapper is this plasticacetate cover and the end flaps are impossible to read when removed from the book I ll start with the things I liked about this book 1 The story was very interesting and I found Sadako and Sports Illustrated Basketball's Greatest her family very fascinating and I enjoyed learning about them along with the protagonists 2 I found it very refreshing and surprising that the main protagonist was a man womenteenage girls are generally the most common and most popular fororror and both the movies featured a woman so I didn t expect it to be a man in the book 3 I enjoyed reading about Eroi e dei dell'Olimpo how the protagonists figured things out and I liked the way the mystery was explored4 I thought the story was cleverly written and itad the right amount of tension and suspense to keep me reading onNow for the things I wasn t so keen on 1 This one is to do with myself really and that is that I went into this book with pretty Economia liquida: Policy high expectations Iad Quaderno d'esercizi per liberarsi delle cose inutili heard that it was very scary and therefore I was expecting to be scared and for it to focus onorror This isn t the case At least not for me I know I m fairly desensitised due to the amount of Where Is Our Solar System? horror and true crime that I read and watch yet even so I didn t think that any of the book was scary There were parts that were very creepy and eerie and don t get me wrong they were very good but there wasn t one part of this book that scared me to the level that I was expecting This book read to me like a murder mystery than aorror which is a genre I usually love but I went into this book looking for some good scary fun and I just didn t get it 2 This I imagine is probably mostly due to the fact that I Where Is the Vatican? had seen both the Japanese and the American versions of the film of this book prior to reading it but there was only one part of the book that surprised me I could see all the other plot twists and surprises coming from a mile away The only one that did surprise me was one that I m sure wasn t included in either movie andonestly I think it was better that they left it out It was a ridiculous plot point which served absolutely no purpose to the overall story view spoiler I can t remember the name that was used for it but it was some kind of medical thing where women Luce e ombra.

Ant to say that English is not my mother tongue I try my best to avoid mistakes but I m sure the text contains errorsTrigger warning RapeREVIEW CONTINUES IN COMMENT SECTIONNow to the reviewI ve read The Ring for a Seminar on Japanese contemporary literature and literary discourse I read parts of the original Japanese novel and the German translation which is a translation from the English translation Yes this appens often than we academics wished for Translations are already tricky but to be so lazy as to translate a translation I The Elusive Heiress Nancy Drew have no words for this incredibly stupid practice of German publishing companies They did this with Mishima Yukio s Confessions of a Mask also translated from English to German No they did not bother to make a new translation from Japanese yet We onlyave the translation from 1964 Good job publishersBack to the topicLike many others I Pizarro and the Conuest of Peru have seen the movies the whole Japanese Ringu series and the American version The Ring I was excited to read the novel since I expected something intriguing uncanny a well developed plot and a deeper insight into the characters Unfortunately I am rather disappointedIt s not a terrible book but while reading it Iad the feeling I was Are You There God? It's Me M holding the first draft instead of a published novel There are several points I want to mention to illustrate what exactly irked me1 The writing styleIave read worse but I Evan (O'Connor Brothers Vol. 5) have read better Suzuki writes very simplistic and while I think that a simple writing style per se is not bad it seemed thate just couldn t write better In many instances On Hitler's Mountain Overcoming the Legacy of a Nazi Childhood PS he focuses on the wrong details For example the first chapter is a very long very boring description of building neighborhood and so forth that do not add to the setting It is a dull description with no connection or payoff with the mystery that is going on inside theouse I didn t matter A cristalli liquidi (Italian Edition) how the neighborhood looked like at all since the main part of the story was inside the characterer thoughts fears anxiety etc and the I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad horror that tooker lifeAnother problem was the lack of sensory descriptions It was a lot of telling and almost no showing If Suzuki described something it was almost entirely visual and in second place what the character felt like No smell no taste no touch no audio This makes it very difficult to fully emerge into the story It s even worse because the plot doesn t really affect the characters Asakawa is understandably disturbed and concerned but Pip Sueak Saves the Day Medici Books for Children he s such a whiny arrogant prick that I don t care whatappens to Dragonsbane him And whene says This Lonestar Sanctuary here is very disturbing to me I as a reader don t care because it s not only too much telling instead of showing there is seldom any real conseuence from what isappening Sure whiny panicking but does Asakawa actually DO than that Nope He prefers to angst about Trust Me, I'm Lying: Confessions of a Media Manipulator his misunderstood intellect that poor righteous soulAlso the plotting doesn t always workAsakawa decides to take a taxi The driver reports from a mysterious sudden death of a young man onis motor bike The young man falls to the ground while clutching Understanding the Black Economy and Black Money in India his throat and thene dies Just like that Asakawa is immediately intrigued although Desperate (Bad Baker Boys, he shouldn t In reality it s just a random death and as a journalist Asakawaas surely Biocentrismo.
