The thrill and the horror of the game continues. By now, there are only 20 students remaining. And the game continues. Two students plot to do major damage, but then a kink comes into their plans. And so it goes. The character development in this is outstanding. The plot is tight, and the action is fast-paced and just takes the reader in, not letting go until the very end. This is dystopian literature at its best, but it is also a great manga and work. Definitely a must-read, and I will be reading the rest.

Now if only certain reality shows would grow some balls and be more like this, we would really get "must-see tv, hehe. Just a thought. ( )
