3 1/2 Stars

This is the Japanese book the blockbuster movie was based upon. I saw the movie first, which, in my opinion, is the best way to see movie/book combinations, and I was right in this case. The movie is only based on the book, and leaves out the strange explanations for the supernatural phenomenon chronicled in the story. The book makes more sense, however, since it wasn’t being written for a sequel, and left me feeling satisfied at the end. The author did a great job creating tension throughout, and I found myself rooting for the lead to alternately die and live. An interesting dichotomy. If you liked the movie you’ll love the book.
