I accidentally made the week post first and sadly Discourse doesn’t allow you to save a draft while you make another post so…
WEEK ONE IS OPEN
I know this is a little early but I might be out this evening and worry I’ll forget to post, so a few hours ahead of plan will have to do.
Oh wow, there will be a book club for this one too? Rad. I’m definitely interested, although it’s very intimidating since it’s a level 33 novel, meanwhile the most difficult thing I’ve completed is just manga in the mid-high 20s, lol.
As a side note, I’m sure if it’s just a difference between versions or not, but the week 2 checkpoint for my copy was written a little differently: 視ていたのだろう
I’d have to go check but likely it was just me typoing. I was glancing at my iPad to copy the sentence pieces and also trying hard not to spoil anything for myself so the glances were quite short
Week 2 opened, typo mentioned above fixed as well for the schedules going forward
Page numbers in the Kodansha bunkobon paperback. up to week 7, as much for my own reference as anything else:
Week 1: p1-40
Week 2: p41-67
Week 3: p68-94
Week 4: p95-118
Week 5: p119-155
Week 6: p156-181
Week 7: p182-210
(I’ll come back and do the other half later I expect.)
OP has been updated with those numbers. I’ll add it to the week 2 post as well.
Thank you! We have the same copy so this is super handy
I’m reading a bit early as I’ll be traveling next week and just want to give a heads up that the next section contains some graphic scenes. Frankly it’s a bit torture porn-y.
If you’re unsure if you want to read it, please let me know and I can summarize the contents.
Full spoilers for インタールード１, the sections for next week after this don’t contain graphic content.
We’re introduced to a man, name given as 鶴丘文樹（つるおか・ふみき) who is said to look like a bland, nondescript businessman. He has a woman captive and she is awake and alert. She says she’ll do anything and he says he wants the answer to two questions. The questions are “痛いか?” and “痛くないか？”. He stabs her and repeatedly asks her these questions. As she is dying he also asks her “そっちには、何があるんだ？何が見える？” Because the woman does not / is unable to answer him, he refers to this as a ‘failed experiment’. It is clear this is not the first such ‘experiment’. He disposes of her body and notes that he is very careful to not leave any evidence or anything that ties him to the woman.
You’re awesome, thanks. I don’t know that I would have enjoyed listening to that, especially with sound effects
My thoughts exactly… screaming is really loud in the audiobook. RIP ears. I now know to listen on speakers, rather than earphones…
@cat : here’s the other half of the end-of-the-week’s-section page numbers from the paperback:
Week 8: p242
Week 9: p275
Week 10: p317
Week 11: p344
Week 12: p372
Week 13: p402
Week 14: p445
Week 15: p474
Random question, I see that the first post mentioned an audiobook, but I can’t find it on audible. Is it exclusive to some other place? (I was planning to use it to stay focused on the text)
I don’t know if it’s exclusive to there, but I’m listening through audiobook.jp’s 聴き放題 subscription. Looks like it’s around 1900円 to purchase
I also got it on there, but bought it out right… Likely on sale
