However, Miike could not raise funding for the project. The dialogue is stiff and unrealistic, especially in the first half of the book, but gets slightly better toward the end. Enlisting the help of a filmmaker friend, he holds an audition to find his future wife by duping women into thinking they are auditioning for a film. Like I’ve said, the book is fast-paced, easy to read yet devastating. Ali, kakav je to bio susret!

It will grab hold of you and keep you in suspense right through to the very end. Audition is the story of Aoyama, auddicija middle-aged widower of seven years, urged by his teenage son to remarry; the idea is shared by his best friend, Yoshikawa, with whom Aoyama produced documentaries for Tokyo television.

You know who the bad guy is and who the victim is for the entire book and yet are driven to turn the next page and the qudicija in order to see exactly how this audifija play out and if anyone will survive. So when his best friend Yoshikawa comes up with a plan to hold fake film auditions so that Aoyama can choose a new bride, he decides to go along with the idea.

These things are somewhat small consider This review and other dark melodrama on my blog. Some of you in my horror circle have this on your TBR list you know who you are. Apr 25, Nina rated it really liked it. I usually don’t do this, but I’m going to review Audition in comparison to the film versionwhich the author reputedly loved so much he specifically requested the same director to adapt his Coin Locker Babies as well.


If you want to know nothing going in, consider yourself warned. But what is truly at its core is some anxiety in the culture, some unspoken tension that is brought out in our worst nightmares. Maybe holding that audition isn’t such a bad idea after all? Now get ready for a new sort of romantic comedy! The movie is unsettling, creepy, and downright creeped me out.

Having read quite a lot of horror fiction and thrillers by writers such as Stephen King and Dean Koontz, I am not the kind of person that shies away from spine-chilling suspense and blood-curdling gore.

There was no build-up of suspense, characters lacked development and the “action”, when it came was rather abru I watched Takashi Miike’s “Audition” more than a decade ago and it instantly became one of my favourite movies. Although initially reluctant, Aoyama ultimately gives in – and when he sees one of the candidates, the 24 year old Yamasaki Asami, he is completely smitten; he cannot get her out of his mind, and quickly arranges a date.

Not so with the novel, which didn’t even spike the creep o meter.

The way the style and tone of the book kept wavering from anything between romance, suspense, horror and unnecessarily explicit sex, make me suspect that Murakami was experimenting with genres while writing Audition.

Nevertheless, it is an enjoyable read, one that I would definitely recommend to all. If audicij thought Misery was dismayingly violent, Audition isn’t for you.

Meet Aoyama, a widower with a missing place in his heart. No off-shoot stories or extra characters or other stuff. Besides these themes—which I’m more forcing audicuja bit onto the book, because it’s definitely not the main focus—there are quite a few gags and audciija of black humor. Wouldn’t it be cool to meet a decent girl for a change? Little does he know, Yamasaki has a dark and horrifying past… At just under two-hundred pages, this book could easily be read in one sitting.
