Doubt 2 by Yoshiki Tonogai

As the first book left off at a teasing point just before revealing the killer, I was really looking forward to this book. This time it’s all action, there are less characters available to the story and they don’t know who they can trust. This is where this book really becomes similar to the “Saw” franchise as it brings everything to an exciting end. I wasn’t expecting the ending in this book and it’s an interesting way to end the story.

 In my personal opinion this is although very similar to Saw, carried out better. It’s more believable, it doesn’t involve ridiculously complicated engineering, it’s simply barcodes and locks and the human condition does the rest. As I tend to find is quite common, the Japanese have taken a similar concept and executed it better than America has. I don’t mean that to be of any offense to anyone but you only have to look at Battle Royale vs The Hunger Games to see my point.
