Audition

Audition - Ryƫ Murakami,  Ralph McCarthy A tightly controlled, very funny book which, unfortunately, suddenly descends into extremely graphic and gratuitous violence in the climax. I stopped reading at the point the poor dog was attacked and skipped ahead to read the last paragraph only. In a book that was so well-written, with both humour and tension expertly woven into the pages, the detailed description of the violence was unnecessary.
