About the Author
Koushun Takami was born in 1969 in Amagasaki near Osaka and grew up in Kagawa Prefecture of Shikoku, where he currently resides. After Graduating from Osaka University with a degree in literature, he dropped out of Nihon University. From 1991 to 1996 he worked for the prefectural news company Shikoku Shinbun. Battle Royale, completed after Takami left the news company, was a finalist for the Kadokawa Mystery Prize, but ultimately lost due to the controversy the novel's content provoked among jury members. With its publication in Japan in 1999, Battle Royale received widespread support from young readers and became a best seller. In 2000, it was adapted as a manga and made into a popular feature film.

The book picks up and seldom goes down - if you're really into a very gritty and an unnecessarily gory high school showdown - immediately purchase this book.
I was very surprised by how detailed this book was. If you get queasy by thinking of these things, I do not recommend.
The characters were nice and fleshed out (albeit somewhat hard to manage due to the dozens of names...), the action was spot on, and the plot itself consistently stayed interesting.
