Ringu リング

Met een van doodsangst vertrokken gezicht Zijn onderzoek leidt naar een vakantiepark waar de vier precies een week voor hun dood gezamenlijk een videoband hebben bekeken. the newest chinese interpretation of the title is void of circle not ring or bell or whateversaid it s the 3rd chapter of the series but no just another remakethe film is not bad the book is everlastingly outstanding

CHARACTERS Ringu リング

Eerst sterft er één meisje dan blijkt een vriend van haar ook te zijn omgekomen De doodsoorzaak is in beide gevallen een hartaanval Wanneer er nog een twee dode tieners. I ll start with the things I liked about this book 1 The story was very interesting and I found Sadako and 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 for horror 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 how the protagonists figured things out and I liked the way the mystery was explored4 I thought the story was cleverly written and it had 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 high expectations I had heard that it was very scary and therefore I was expecting to be scared and for it to focus on horror This isn t the case At least not for me I know I m fairly desensitised due to the amount of 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 a horror 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 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 and honestly 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 have testicles and apparently every woman that has it is for some reason beautiful Please This was basically then used for some weird transphobia stuff about him not being able to decide if she was technically a she then as she had balls but then he basically decided he didn t care because of how beautiful she was The story could ve done without all that hide spoiler
