Bullet Train
Bullet Train | Kotaro Isaka
Five killers find themselves on a bullet train from Tokyo competing for a suitcase full of money. Who will make it to the last station? An original and propulsive thriller from a Japanese bestseller. Satoshi looks like an innocent schoolboy but he is really a viciously cunning psychopath. Kimura's young son is in a coma thanks to him, and Kimura has tracked him onto the bullet train heading from Tokyo to Morioka to exact his revenge. But Kimura soon discovers that they are not the only dangerous passengers onboard. Nanao, the self-proclaimed 'unluckiest assassin in the world', and the deadly partnership of Tangerine and Lemon are also travelling to Morioka. A suitcase full of money leads others to show their hands. Why are they all on the same train, and who will get off alive at the last station? A bestseller in Japan, Bullet Train is an original and propulsive thriller which fizzes with an incredible energy as its complex net of double-crosses and twists unwinds to the last station.

I really enjoyed this book. Was sold immediately on the premise, loved the setting, and was tickled pink by Lemon‘s obsession with Thomas the Tank Engine 😂

Really? Brad Pitt as the lead character in this movie? How dull.

Darkly humorous take on thriller. What happens when you lock a bunch of ki;let's for hirer and the unluckiest bag man on a train? Chaos, chaos happens.

It's a fun cast of characters with lots of banter, except for the teen psychopath, his perspective is kind of dull with typical musings. Takes a while for the chaotic energy to culminate into the kind of adrenaline pumping action of a thriller but really the ride itself is more interesting.

BookwormM I loved this one 9mo
stretchkev @BookwormM Really is a fun one. Wish there was more like it. 9mo

This is the story of 5 assassins on Japan's high speed “bullet train.“ This isn't the fastest of thrillers, but there are enough reversals & twists to speed the plot along nicely. Each of the assassins is working a job on the train. What they come to find out is that perhaps their jobs are connected in ways they did not expect. It's a light read and I enjoyed it, even if it wasn't my favorite book ever!

DrexEdit I understand that there is already a movie being made from this book. If so I picture it to be something along the lines of Silver Streak, only perhaps a bit more sinister--a light action-comedy-thriller. 👍 10mo
