Stunning Japanese thriller with a chilling supernatural twist. The novel that inspired the cult Japanese movie and the Hollywood blockbuster of the same name. Asakawa is a hardworking journalist who has climbed his way up from local-news beat reporter to writer for his newspaper's weekly magazine. A chronic workaholic, he doesn't take much notice when his seventeen-year-old niece dies suddenly - until a chance conversation reveals that another healthy teenager died at exactly the same time, in chillingly similar circumstances. Sensing a story, Asakawa begins to investigate, and soon discovers that this strange simultaneous sudden-death syndrome also affected another two teenagers. Exactly one week before their mysterious deaths the four teenagers all spent the night at a leisure resort in the same log cabin. When Asakawa visits the resort, the mystery only deepens. A comment made in the guest book by one of the teenagers leads him to a particular vidoetape with a portentous message at the end: Those who have viewed these images are fated to die at this exact hour one week from now. Asakawa finds himself in a race against time - he has only seven days to find the cause of the teenagers' deaths before it finds him. The hunt puts him on the trail of an apocalytpic power that will force Asakawa to choose between saving his family and saving civilization.… (més)

This story mixes the ancient with the modern. It excels in its tight plot; furthermore, the dialogue and characterizations are sharp. The main character as an imperfect salaryman works well as a horror genre archetype; however, the questioning of the sidekick's self-confessed immorality elicits only ambiguity rather than sympathy. Even its apparently pseudo-scientific ramblings make their mark in the finale, which, by the way, is one of the most inventive ways of torturing people.

Although it has its horrific moments, it shines as a supernatural thriller. ( )

I didn't love this book, sadly. I definitely found it intriguing and compelling enough to keep reading, but the primary main characters were difficult to like. I don't have to like main characters, but both of them left me feeling...unsettled. I'm still pondering this one. ( )

*UPDATE* Full review here
I'm just so disappointed. It's not often that the movie is better, but this is just too problematic. Not very scary and a lot gets lost in translation. I'm sure I missed a lot of the nuances between the original Japanese and the translated English. I'm not sure if I want to read another one by Suzuki or if I should go ahead and give it a shot. I dunno. Proper review later. ( )

Asakawa becomes obsessed with a series of inexplicable deaths after hearing about one of them that sounds very, very much like the recent death of his niece. As he uses his job as a journalist to not only access the right contacts and sources but also the right tools, he realises that not are they connected, but they are connected in a way that soon threatens not only him but his entire family.

Haunted by a mysterious tape that seems just as inexplicable as the deaths it seems to have somehow caused, Asakawa barely has time to consider the absurdity of it all as he races against the clock to save not just himself and his family but come to the bottom of a mystery that only seems to create new questions for each answer he finds.

I've seen the movies, both the Japanese and the American ones, so I did know what to expect... sort of, at least. To be quite honest, this is one of those cases where it worked better as a movie - mostly because of how the story goes, it is a very visual aspect to it that I don't really think Suzuki managed to fully translate into words. But I also think the characters were more the reason I didn't enjoy the book as much as I had hoped I would - I really did not like Asakawa's helping hand, and he didn't really seem to like him either but at the same time, he still continued to consider him his friend. It got to the point where it was hard to like Asawaka because as well as his own flaws, he continued to just shrug off his friend's really vile ones, and yeah. But I'm still excited for the next book in the series. ( )
