It's just before New Year, and Frank, an overweight American tourist, has hired Kenji to take him on a guided tour of Tokyo's nightlife. But Frank's behaviour is so odd that Kenji begins to entertain a horrible suspicion: his client may in fact have murderous desires. Although Kenji is far from innocent himself, he unwillingly descends with Frank into an inferno of evil, from which only his sixteen-year-old girlfriend, Jun, can possibly save him.

    Хоть теги поставила «стремные», но книга мне понравилась!))
    Как всегда, неоднозначные впечатления от Рю и его фантазии — советовать Вам что-то не в силах, ибо произведение на любителя.
    Но если хотите немного саспенса, недомолвок и много гадостей (разного рода), то Вам сюда — к Рю (и ко мне).

    🔮Hidden Depths


    b4013345682has quoted5 months ago
    You exhibit a certain amount of confusion, a few contradictory impulses, but that’s true of all mentally normal people. It’s the ones who’re rigid in their likes and dislikes who are in trouble. Everybody lives with a certain amount of confusion and indecision—never knowing which way the pendulum’s going to swing. That’s normal.

    anyone stupid enough to get the idea of murdering people from a movie could get the same idea from watching the news, right

    Basically people who love horror movies are people with boring lives. They want to be stimulated, and they need to reassure themselves, because when a really scary movie is over, you’re reassured to see that you’re still alive and the world still exists as it did before. That’s the real reason we have horror films—they act as shock absorbers—and if they disappeared altogether it would mean losing one of the few ways we have to ease the anxiety of the imagination.
