十角館の殺人

十角館の殺人 Free read É 6 Students from a university mystery club decide to visit an island which was the site of a grisly multiple murder the year before Predictably they get picked off one by one by an unseen murderer Is there a madman on the loose What connection is there to the earlier murders The answer is a bombshell revelation which few rea. First I want to say thank you for Sanny who introduced me with this novel and importantly introduced me with Honkaku mystery genre Honkaku means orthodox in Japan and this genre keeps the whodunit mystery stories alive in Japan I admit I didn t know the existence of Honkaku mystery before I read this novelThis is an isolated island murder mystery with the clues red herrings and so on with climax when readers found whodunit In my opinion the mystery and climax is good just as expected I expected a twist at climax and I like the twist I was reading the last pages at the morning and still sleepy then the climax words successfully slapped me into fully awakeI recommend this novel for whodunit stories fans If you don t know Honkaku genre I recommend to search a bit about it as what I have been doing for several daysEDIT NOTE I previously only mentioned the genre as Honkaku Sanny corrected me

review 十角館の殺人

十角館の殺人 Free read É 6 Ders will see coming The Decagon House Murders is a milestone in the history of detective fiction Published in 1987 it is credited with launching the shinhonkaku movement which restored Golden Age style plotting and fair play clues to the Japanese mystery scene which had been dominated by the social school of mystery for. Have to say that in the end I was disappointed You tell me that this book is a homage to And Then There Were None and it ends up just being kind of a mess with an ending that was nothing like that book It didn t help that Ayatsuji had some of the book following two other characters so you don t stay on the island with the characters who are being picked off one by one I do like that we were given a glossary in the end to understand some of the words being used in this bookThe Decagon House Murders is a bit of a convoluted tale The book starts off with us in the murderer s POV We know that he or she has something up their sleeve to make people pay for what they did Then we transitioned over to a group of college aged students who are making their way to the Decagon House The students plan to stay on an uninhabited island for a week A brutal murder and apparent suicide took place there six months ago and due to this the students think it would be perfect for them to go and get away to All of the students belong to a mystery group at their university and they have taken the names of famous mystery writers We have the following Agatha Van Leroux Orczy Ellery Carr and Poe While they are away on the island a former member of the mystery group Kawaminami receives a letter accusing him of being behind the murder of a former member named Chiori We find out that she was a shy young women who died of a heart attack brought upon due to alcohol poisoning Kawaminami starts to try to figure out who could have sent the letter and figures out ties that Chiori has to the island that the group has just departed for I have to say that I didn t get a chance to get a handle on anyone When the group on the island starts to get picked off one by one by the murderer it just started to feel anti climatic I liked how Christie did it via her book and how they were all sent to die based on a rhyme This felt a little too clumsy It didn t help that the book jumps back and forth between the murders on the island and Kawaminami s investigation with an older man he meets I think that distracted from the overall tenor of the book and it felt a bit like we had Ayatsuji trying to throw in a bit of Arthur Conan Doyle and have a Sherlock and Watson on the sceneThe writing was okay as I said earlier it was great to get the glossary in the book describing things However the flow wasn t that great I had a hard time with the second investigation going on since it just felt really fake to me And then it made zero sense with what we know was going on on he islandThe setting of the island and the Decagon House were intriguing I liked the history behind it being built and how lonesome it must have been Ayatsuji provides some diagrams which were helpful to show where everyone is staying at and also at one point where a body is found The ending did have a cool twist but I had a hard time buying it It didn t really work I think in the end And then the reason behind the murder felt very fake to me It just seemed like a reason for the murderer to do what they did We get a reveal about all of the murders and how they happened and it felt like that bit got written before the initial set up of the book A nice look at a Japanese golden age mystery novel I definitely enjoyed The Tokyo Zodiac Murders

十角館の殺人 Free read É 6 Several decades It is also said to have influenced the development of the wildly popular anime movementThis the first English edition contains a lengthy introduction by the maestro of Japanese mystery fiction Soji ShimadaLocked Room International discovers and publishes impossible crime masterpieces from all over the worl. Seven college students all members of their university s mystery club decide to spend a week on an island where last year a brutal and to date unsolved multiple slaying took place The island s main structure the Blue Mansion was destroyed by arson in connection with that earlier crime the students who bear nicknames like Ellery Agatha Orczy and Carr in honor of their favorite authors thus occupy the island s only other building the Decagon House of the titleThe fact that this house is decagonal the rooms inside it trapezoidal there s a helpful map in the book to explain this doesn t really affect the plot but does convey to us uite effectively that what we re reading here is an artificial construct a puzzle detection rather than a mimetic novel And indeed as we learn from the afterword the publication of The Decagon House Murders written originally as essentially a piece of fan fiction for the Kyoto University Mystery Club heralded a return to fashion in Japanese crime fiction of the puzzle mystery which had been supplanted decades earlier by realistic fareIn early pages it s specifically acknowledged that the setup strongly resembles that in Agatha Christie s classic novel And Then There Were None and sure nuff there s a murderer intent on knocking off the students one by one for reasons of revenge However this exercise in homage is by no means a copycat exercise indeed there s a separate very major plot strand set simultaneously on the mainland and involving a completely different set of characters and I actually found the puzzle part of the mystery here intriguing than albeit just as implausible as its euivalent in the Christie novelIn short if you re into Golden Age Detection then there s a very great deal here for you to feed on not least a uasi reincarnation of one of my favorite fictional detectives E But where everything else gets let down a bit is in the translation which hobbles and stumbles where it should gracefully glide This isn t I think the fault of the translator but of the English language publisher who needed to be far proactive in terms of editing and copyediting than he obviously was hereAn especially egregious misjudgment occurs when Ellery for no real plot reason tantalizes the others with a few riddles based on the shapes of Japanese calligraphs Obviously these would make exactly zero sense to English language readers so the translator has invented new roughly euivalent riddles to take their place The trouble is that these make no sense either Since the passage concerned contributes nothing to the plot it could easily have been omitted or completely new this time genuinely English based riddles could have been substituted At the moment though the little section serves merely to irritate especially since you have to keep flipping to the endnotes to find out what the heck the riddles are supposed to be about The Decagon House Murders then reminded me of the way so many self published novels that could be great are severely impaired by the lack of the final polish that professional publishers aim to supply there s a diamond within all right but it s hard to see it through the rough This is not the kind of book that should be the hard slog that at least for me it proved to be on occasion
