Ring by Koji Suzuki I was hesitant to dive into this book at first because I don’t deal well with horror films and have thus never embraced horror literature. However, to my pleasant surprise, this book hasn’t played out at all like a its gimmicky American movie version, but is actually more of a murder mystery/psychological thriller. Instead of filling his pages with gratuitous gore, Suzuki has composed an extremely thoughtful, and thought-provoking tale that explores the dark recesses of our psychological and social landscape. It makes me wonder where the American adaptation even came from as it is such a far cry from this novel, which shares more genetic material with  Life of Pi and Heart of Darkness than with other cousins of its genre.
