A dropout from an elite Houston-based program for teens is on a visit to a private island. Its mistress, virtually marooned there, surrounds herself with geniuses, especially of the young and female kind—one of whom ends up headless one fine morning.

The top-selling novelist year by year in his native Japan, prolific palindromic phenomenon NISIOISIN made his debut when he was only twenty with this Mephisto Award winner, a whodunit and locked-room mystery at once old-school and eye-opening. Previously published stateside by Del Rey, the translation has been retitled and revised just in time for the long-requested animated series based on illustrator take’s character concepts.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good Book I watched the first couple episodes of the anime first, but since the episodes take so long to come out, I decided to read the book. It was intriguing, and the ending was unexpected (for me, at least. I'm not a very good detective). The twists and turns this book makes makes you want to find out what happens next, and before you realize it, you've finished. If you're a fan of mystery, or of NisiOisiN, you'll like what this book has to offer.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nonsense Series If you're familiar with Nisioisin, you should know what to expect. Clever wordplay, odd characters, and weird plots. The first volume is a nice introduction to the Zaregoto Cycle, or nonsense series. There's enough here, in the first volume, to keep the reader plugging along.
