  • Quattro ragazzi muoiono nello stesso giorno e alla stessa ora, improvvisamente, stroncati da un infarto Un avvenimento forse non particolarmente strano in una grande citt come Tokyo Ma lo zio di una delle vittime Asakawa, un giornalista che, di cose strane, in quelle morti, ne vede parecchie Anzitutto i quattro ragazzi si conoscevano, anzi avevano addirittura trascorQuattro ragazzi muoiono nello stesso giorno e alla stessa ora, improvvisamente, stroncati da un infarto Un avvenimento forse non particolarmente strano in una grande citt come Tokyo Ma lo zio di una delle vittime Asakawa, un giornalista che, di cose strane, in quelle morti, ne vede parecchie Anzitutto i quattro ragazzi si conoscevano, anzi avevano addirittura trascorso insieme un breve periodo di vacanza Inoltre sono tutti morti con un espressione di puro terrore stampata per sempre sul viso.In preda a una singolare frenesia, Asakawa comincia a indagare nella vita dei giovani e scopre quasi per caso che, una settimana prima di morire, i quattro avevano guardato un inquietante videocassetta, su cui incisa una serie d immagini misteriose l eruzione di un vulcano, un neonato che piange, una quantit sterminata di volti, una vecchia che parla in un incomprensibile dialettoE, alla fine, una scritta bianca su fondo nero Adesso che avete visto queste immagini, siete condannati a morire esattamente a quest ora, tra una settimana Se non volete morire, dovete seguire esattamente queste istruzioni poi pi nulla Si tratta forse di uno scherzo di pessimo gusto Oppure un avvertimento Ma cosa rappresentano quelle immagini E, soprattutto, chi ha inciso la cassetta e perch Queste le domande che affollano la mente di Asakawa, il quale, sospeso tra incredulit e terrore, chiede aiuto a un amico, Ryuji, un professore universitario disincantato e concreto, per venire a capo del mistero.Le risposte arriveranno, ma, per ottenerle, Asakawa e Ryuji dovranno pagare un prezzo molto alto E forse non soltanto loro

    One thought on “Ring”

    1. 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, women/teenage 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 [...]

    2. I found this book in a lonely mountainside cabin nah, only kidding. It was £1 in a bargain basement book sale, so who could say no to that? It went onto the frankly vertiginous and ridiculous pile of books behind the sofa and was forgotten about for sometime. Then, a few days ago I was working on a site in the former medieval area of Liverpool.Everybody was busily engaged in day to day construction/demolition mayhem; I was watching a twenty ton digger, a crane was rolling across site moving ste [...]

    3. During a solo work/study trip to Ireland in fall of 2000 I was out one dusky evening exploring the cobble-stoned lanes of Dublin's City Centre when I stumbled upon the entrance to the Irish Film Institute movie house. Excited, I shyly stuck my head inside the front door. I felt a little bit like Alice discovering the rabbit hole. Hanging on the wall to my left as I walked inside was this movie poster:Remember, this would have been before the deluge of Asian horror (and the numerous American re-m [...]

    4. One of the few times in my life I can legitimately say that the movie was better than the book. Oh, and in case you're wondering, I like the American and Japanese versions equally. I do, however, like the Japanese sequel more than the American sequel.Where did this go wrong? Well, I was enjoying this one until the introduction of the best friend, Ryuji the Rapist. I don't think it matters that Ryuji the Rapist might have been lying about his past. Just having him in the book and believing for th [...]

    5. The blurbs tell us the author has been called the Stephen King of Japan, where he is famous. Many of his books, including this one, have been turned into movies and even video games. He is a bit like Stephen King in his blend of fantasy, horror and mysteryThe basic story is that a journalist discovers that four young people -- two girls, two boys -- died separately and suddenly within a day for no good reason. They were of college age and all perfectly healthy. He becomes a detective, tracing ev [...]

    6. UN FINAL QUE TE ESTREMECE SIN DARTE HORROR, LA NATURALEZA DEL MIEDO Y DE SADAKO, TE DEJARÁN PENSANDO DURANTE MUCHOS DÍASCOMEDNACIONES, PARA LEER EL ARO1. DEBO DECIR DE ANTEMANO QUE PARA DISFRUTAR ESTE LIBRO, DEBEN QUITARSE TODO LO QUE CONOCEN DE LA PELÍCULA, YA QUE NO, PERO NO, NO, NO, NO. NO. TIENE NADA DE PARECIDO CON LA VERSIÓN CINEMATOGRÁFICA. 2.

    7. First off, I want to say that English is not my mother-tongue. I try my best to avoid mistakes, but I’m sure that here and there I will make some smaller or bigger errors.Trigger warning: RapeVIEW CONTINUES IN COMMENT SECTIONNow to the review.I’ve read The Ring for a Seminar on Japanese contemporary literature and literary discourse. I read parts of the original Japanese novel and the German translation, which is a translation from the English translation… Yes, this happens more often than [...]

    8. OK this one, alright. Something got lost in the translation, huh ? Like many I spiraled into this because of the movies, that since have become part of our pop culture, nonetheless I became engrossed in its mythopoeia anyways. It's an iconic setting after all.It was a frightening book to begin with, at times I couldn't read it during the night and even had to stop altogether in order to read something else. So as not to feel uneasy anymore, which the book made me aplenty, something I hope it was [...]

    9. Actual Rating 3.5 ★★★✰✰ “Think! There's nothing certain in our future! All we can hope for is a vague continuation. But in spite of that, you're going to keep on living. You can't give up on life just because it's vague. It's a question of possibilities” This one was one thrilling book with supernatural elements and it was also one of the fastest books I have ever read I flew through this in two sittings and I enjoyed it.It's the story of a journalist who tries to investigate the s [...]

    10. It is a truth universally acknowledged that there is no scarier horror book or movie than a book or a movie that comes from Japan. It chills one to the bones, makes you want to cry and curl under blankets, trembling in fear. Every single thing in this story is unsettling or creepy, even a little girl sleeping peacefully. Even someone's smile. Or a simple writing. Koji Suzuki infected me with terror.

    11. ????????????????Zur Geschichte:4 Jugendliche sterben alle an einer unnatürlichen Todesursache, nachdem sie zusammen ein mysteriöses Video angesehen haben. Am Ende des Videos erscheint die Botschaft: "Wer diese Bilder sieht, ist dazu verdammt, exakt eine Woche nach diesem Augenblick zu sterben."Es wird zwar noch ein Gegenmittel erwähnt, doch hier wurde das Band offensichtlich überspielt, die rettende Information fehlt.Auch die junge Satoko, 17 ist unter den Opfern. Ihr Onkel Asakawa findet he [...]

    13. OH. MY. GOODNESS. THIS BOOK IS AMAZING!!!! I don't even know where to begin. So, I've seen all of the film versions and, honestly, I wasn't too terribly fond of any of them (except the second American film but that's a different story) so going into this book I wasn't sure it would be all that great. Well, as they say, don't judge a book by its movie.This book literally exceeded all my expectations. I can't even begin to discuss just how amazing it is. Where the films strove to be horror films, [...]

    14. I remember being younger and hearing about Samara and how there's this 'totally life changing horror film absolutely everyone must watch' and being the little frightned girl I was, I put it off for a long time but I did watch it sometime last year, I believe. It was nice. Not much else to say to it.While browsing through a list of Books by Japanese Authors, and passed the usual Murakami overload, I came across Ring and was pleased to find it was the actual source material for the film. Also, the [...]

    15. โอ้โห โคตรสนุกเลย ไม่ได้อ่านนิยายที่อยากอ่านให้จบรวดเดียวมานานมากแล้ว เราเคยดูหนังเดอะ ริง มาก่อน แต่จำพล็อตได้คร่าวๆ พออ่านนิยายจริงๆ ถึงรู้ว่าประเด็นมันซับซ้อนมากกว่าแค่ผ [...]

    16. I am waffling with the whole star thing for this book. I shall make my decision when I am done with my thoughts. First let me say the first chapter is one of the most terrifying things I have ever read. It leaves you with this sense of dread and foreboding for the rest of the book.Frankly I did not sleep well.I enjoyed the story, the searching for a solution and all that we discover. It is all really good. I thought about Joesph Campbell and his series with Bill Moyers "The Power of Myth".(I hav [...]

    17. From time to time, you do get your hands on a horror that is not quite a horror, but more like a thriller. Fammiliar, "Ring"? I'm sure many of us have seen the movies for this book. I've seen them. I was twelve. I haven't got over it. It basically changed my imagery on monsters. Before the movie, I though monsters may have been blue, or black, or dwarfy, maybe some of them really tall, some with horns or wings of big big teeth Yeah. After the movie, all monsters seemed to resemble that thing th [...]

    18. Well, that was disappointing.Predictable, not especially well written (but that might be the translator's fault) and just not scary at all.And apparently being a rapist is just being "eccentric". Ok then.

    19. I didn't find this book to be scary either as I am very rarely frightened by books. I did have high hopes for it, as the American film version is one of the few movies that really creeped me out. (I'm a big horror film fan but none have stayed with me as long as The Ring. I can freak myself out just thinking about it.) I found the book interesting, but not scary. As mentioned by others, it is sufficiently different enough from the films to be engaging and I liked the differences very much. I'm c [...]

    20. Well-written, eerie and disturbing, this mysterious book that inspired the 2002 film The Ring and the 2012 film Sinister was creative and original with hauntingly-vibrant imagery and memorable characters.

    21. This is an effective and intelligent chiller which builds up to an interesting moral question, but it’s not a book I particularly warmed to.A great deal of that is to do with the central character: a self-centred and unapproachable journalist. There’s an incredible moral ambivalence about him, best illustrated by one of his friends confessing to raping a college student and the journalist having no problem with that information and seeing no need to go to the police. Indeed this story only g [...]

    22. Truly Creepy    [spoiler]A mysterious videotape warns that the viewer will die in one week unless a certain, unspecified act is performed. Exactly one week after watching the tape, four teenagers die one after another of heart failure. Asakawa, a hardworking journalist, is intrigued by his niece's inexplicable death. His investigation leads him from a metropolitan tokyo teeming with modern society's fears to a rural Japan--a mountain resort, a volcanic island, and a countryside clinic--haunte [...]

    23. From BBC Radio 4 - Drama:Listen. Watch. Until the end. You will be consumed by the lost.'British journalist Mitchell Hooper lives in Tokyo with his wife Toni. When he begins investigating the mysterious deaths of four teenagers, he discovers a nightmarish secret. They all died after watching the same video tape.When Mitchell watches the tape himself, he is cursed to die in seven days.

    24. 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 [...]

    25. 3,75 sao.Mình nhớ là lần trước mình đọc cuốn này được khoảng 4 trang gì đấy thì bỏ.Cũng không nhớ lý do là gì, chắc một phần cũng vì hồi đấy còn bé xíu, sức chịu đựng ma mảnh không tốt lắm.Tiềm thức của mình gào thét khi mình cầm cuốn này lên rằng bỏ xuống đi, dở thấy mồ=))Nhưng lý trí mình vẫn chiến thắng được tình cảm.Và mình phải cảm ơn lý trí của mình nhiều lần lắ [...]

    26. I loved the original Japanese film and also enjoyed the 2002 remake by Gore Verbinski, so it was fun to revisit on The Ring phenomenon with the padding of about 15 years or so, to finally read Kōji Suzuki's original novel. To be honest, I'm not sure how much the cinematic versions informed my reading of this (there are certain scenes I found so creepy at the time they are hard to separate Suzuki's vision) but damn if this story wasn't just as scary as I remembered it being. There's a sense of d [...]

    27. 57/100Möglichst spoilerfreier Versuch diesem Buch gerecht zu werdenEnttäuscht und zugleich angenehm überrascht, auf diese gegensätzlichen Empfindungen bringe ich meine Reaktion auf den Roman Ring, gerade im Vergleich zur Filmversion von Gore Verbinski mit Naomi Watts. Dabei empfand ich den großen Abstand der beiden Gestaltungen des Stoffes als positiv, abgesehen von der Maßnahme dem Fluch zu entgehen und der Videokassette aus der Ferienhütte, gab es kaum Parallelen, wenn man mal von der L [...]

    28. This book was meant to be a horror and I can safely say the only thing scary about this book was how totally fine people seemed to be about rape. I can handle unlikeable characters, I've read and enjoyed American Psycho and The Wasp Factory, but the way rape was treated in this book was complete abhorrent to me. I don't know if it's a cultural thing? Although I doubt it. Other than that I was just completely bored by this book, I don't know if there was something lost in translation or not but t [...]

    29. I first read this as a teenager after being enthralled by the film, 'Ringu'. As a fan of foreign horror films, including a lot from the Far East Ringu became an almost beloved film. A friend found out it was based on a book and the ensuing hardback was eagerly passed around my group of high school friends. The book is less horror and more mystery, a complex puzzle with a life or death conclusion. The book is also more intricate with the storyline of Sadako and I just have a applaud Koji Suzuki f [...]

    30. I absolutely loved the first 100 pages of the book. Unfortunately it went downhill rapidly and it didn't lived up to my expectations. The plot was underachieved and the resolution was lacking obstacles. I'm not a native English speaker even so I think something went lost in the translation. Right now I won't be continuing with the ring series. Over-all I enjoyed the movie more than the book. But it still was a enjoyable read.
