Waterstones Says

Not for the faint-hearted, this dark slice of Japanese psychological horror sees a potentially murderous American tourist on the loose in the sleaziest echelons of Tokyo's night life.

It's just before New Year, and Frank, an overweight American tourist, has hired Kenji to take him on a guided tour of Tokyo's nightlife. But, Frank's behaviour is so odd that Kenji begins to entertain a horrible suspicion: his client may in fact have murderous desires. Although Kenji is far from innocent himself, he unwillingly descends with Frank into an inferno of evil, from which only his sixteen-year-old girlfriend, Jun, can possibly save him.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'A blistering portrait of contemporary Japan, its nihilism and decadence wrapped up within one of the most savage thrillers since The Silence of the Lambs' Kirkus Review 'Deft and fascinating ... A grisly tour of the darkness and confusion of the human mind' New York Times 'There is no shortage of terrors in this novel ... Atmosphere predominates, and the claustrophobia of the backstreets of Tokyo is intensely imagined' Daily Telegraph 'In the Miso Soup stays with the reader long after the book is finished and Murakami makes his readers as complicit as Kenji in their desire to understand why Frank is the way he is.' - The Guardian

“Really don't reccomend”

I bought this book for two reasons. First I read numerous reviews about it, all stating that it was a true masterpiece, with reviews like that, how could I go wrong? The second reason for selecting this was, despite... More

“Nasty but brilliant”

A vicious, unsettling psychological horror that delves into a dark and treacherous side of human nature and behaviour. The characters are brilliantly devised and offer a window into the shady, perverse world that... More

“Absolutly Brilliant”

Although oddly disturbing, its a true masterpiece. I completely disagree with the other review - its characters are well detailed. (Although I do agree that everyone has their own opinion) I came across this book in... More
