[BRIEF NOTE] Battle Royale

I've recently read Koushun Takami's 1999 novel Battle Royale. I'm still not sure how I feel about it. It's certainly provocative and it makes for an interesting piece of alternate history, but plausibility questions aside I wonder if it derives altogether too much of its import from shock value.
