「人間動物園」連城三紀彦

人間動物園

好きな読書系ブログ様、お2つが揃って誉めていらしたので
挑戦してみました。初読です。連城三紀彦。
2003年の「このミス」で第7位を獲得してるんですね。
題名もイヤーな感じにインパクトあるし、
表紙の山羊さんがとっても可愛い!

大雪で交通網の閉ざされた
閉塞的状況で起こる誘拐事件ミステリということで、
今年の厳冬にはぴったりな感じです。
なぜか舞台は埼玉県。

で、ページを開くと、初っ端から読み辛!!
古臭い比喩表現や心象風景の描写が
わんさか出て来ます。モノローグ多いなー。
midoro、わざとらしい修辞が苦手なので、
んなこたどうでもいいから、サクサクと
先に進んでくれー!とイライラしちゃいました。

連城先生、なんか昔っぽいっていうか、
土曜ワイド劇場みたいなベタさです。
ほんとに昔の方だから仕方ないけど、
登場人物の台詞はもちろんのこと、
地の文でも勿体つけてて思わせぶり。
「これが事件の幕開けだった」
「○○は知るよしもなかった」みたいな。
皆が最初から予兆を感じまくり。

ミステリに「人間が描けてない」とか言いたくないけど、
登場人物のキャラ設定、台詞や行動も
「ええ、ここでそんなことしちゃう!?」
「まだ気付かないの!?」というツッコミどころが多く、
作り物っぽくて現実味がないので、
なかなかすんなりと世界に入って行けません。

あと、伏線の張り方も見え見えで、
読んでて「変だな?」と思える箇所について、
登場人物が「これはきっと関係ないだろう!」
「特に意味はないな!」みたく、
言わんでいいことをわざわざ強調して
言ってくれちゃうので、逆に関係あるのが
バレバレです。サラッと書いてくれれば
引っかからずに読み流しちゃうのに。
ある意味、フェアなのか。
まあ、それが伏線だと分かったからって
オチは絶対読めないから問題ないですけど。

で、中盤くらいまで文章に苦しんでいたのですが、
中~後半になってやっと展開が盛り上がって来ました。
犯人と警察との頭脳戦、盗聴戦の辺りは
ややこしくてスリリングで興奮します!

ただ、これらの舞台立てというのは
何というか、あくまで犯人の「レトリック」であって、
事件解明の鍵となる「トリック」ではないんですよね。
midoroの好きな、最後にバーンと劇的に犯人が明かされて、
犯人の取った行動や動機が1から10まできっちり説明されて、
そういうことだったのね!ああー、スッキリ!っていう
タイプの小説じゃなかったです。

結論も刑事の推測によるものだし、
作中で明らかにされなかった箇所は
読者が想像で補ってやらなきゃいけない。
誘拐劇に人間の心の闇や思想やイデオロギーを
絡ませてみたものの、そちらの掘り下げ方は
通り一遍で物足りないし、観念的なものに
最後の結論を持って行かれてしまったのが、
ミステリとしての設定が面白かっただけに残念でした。
きっと、これが連城先生の味なんでしょうけど、
この辺が好みの分かれるところでしょうか。

でも、最後にちゃんとどんでん返しが用意されていて
そこでタイトルの意味が活かされていたのには、
ああー、盲点を突かれた!って感じでビックリしました。
普通に犯人探しのお話だと思っていたので、
こういう展開は全然予想していなかったです。
まさに、逆転の発想!!

なので、最初の方で無理やり何でも
動物と関連付けようとしてこじつけてるなーと思ったけど、
よく読み返せば、midoroが
「なんじゃ、この余計な文章、いらねー」
とか思っていたところも最初からずっと
伏線であったことが判明しました。
最後まで関係なかったところもありましたけど・・。

ということで、文体や設定は古臭いし、
ミステリのジャンルとしては
あまり好みではなかったのですが、
ツッコミどころが多くてネタとしては面白かったし、
自分で手に取った本だったら、きっと
ページをパラパラとめくった段階で
読む気にならなかったと思うので、(すみません)
レヴューを拝見して挑戦してみて良かったです!
思わぬ拾い物でした!

あと、ロンドン動物園で、
「人間動物園」て企画をほんとにやってたんですね!
『Tomotubby’s Travel Blog』様
さすがイギリス人はブラックユーモアに理解がある!
日本だったら、世間の良識派の方々から
槍玉に挙げられること確実です。

【以下、ネタバレ注意!!】
       ・
       ・
       ・
       ・
       ・
       ・
       ・
       ・
       ・
       ・
登場人物の行動や言葉に関しては
ほんとツッコミどころ満載です。
だって、子供を誘拐された(はずの)母親が
手紙に書いて来た内容が、

「切り取られた耳だけがこの家のあちこちの
壁に埋められ象牙色に青ざめながらも
ぴくぴくと動いているような恐怖に襲われて」

って、仕掛けられた盗聴器のことを
こんな風に表すなんて、表現力豊かー!
翻訳関係を仕事にしてるから?
でも、そんなパニックしてるときに
象牙色とか言わないでしょう。

犯人に盗聴されていて、警察と話が出来ないから、
都合良く母親が身に付けていた土鈴を使って
会話の代わりにするという設定もいかにもです。
結局、何で母親は鈴なんか付けてたんでしょう。
家の鍵とか?これが本当の誘拐だったら、
そんな頻繁にリンリンリンリン鈴鳴らしてちゃ
不自然過ぎるって。すぐ犯人に気付かれちゃいます。

あと、思わず噴き出してしまったのが
誘拐された(はず)の子の父親が
「あと3分だけ待つ」と犯人に言われて、
「チクショー、人の命をカップ麺の中にでも
閉じ込めたつもりなのか
」って台詞!これは面白い!
連城先生、真面目にこんな台詞、スゴイよ!!

唯一の女性警官、篠原巡査部長に
恋をする若手警官の話とか無駄に挿入されてるのも、
本筋と全然関係なくて笑えました。
物語に深みを出そうと登場人物1人1人についても
細かく描いて群像劇っぽくしてみたんだろうけど、
中途半端で何がしたいのかサッパリです。
篠原巡査部長、最後忘れられてるし。

あとは、身代金として用意された一億円が
突然真っ白の紙束に変わってしまい、
警察が困惑していたとき、「おばさん」が
「テレビドラマっ!」「サスペンスドラマでこういう時、
一番上だけ一万円札にするじゃないのっ
」と叫んだとこ。
このほんとにテレビドラマっぽい展開を
「おばさん」が自ら逆手に取ったことには驚きました。
やるなー、「おばさん」!

刑事たちが焦って財布から一万円札を
掻き集めてる場面はコミカルで笑っちゃったし、
どうしても一万円札が足りなくて、発田刑事が
「せめてさいごの一枚は俺の千円札で埋めよう
と真面目に考えてるのも、えっ、千円札で埋められても!
これで犯人がトランクを開けて、1つだけ千円束だったら
ビックリするだろうなーと想像しておかしかった。

結局、発田刑事の奥さんが誕生日プレゼントとして
財布に入れてくれていた一万円が窮地を救ったのですが、
そんな伏線のこと、すっかり忘れてたので
ここはちょっと感動してしまいました。
冴えない中年刑事の財布に、普段一万円札なんて
入ってない、っていうこの辺は何だかリアルな。

そして、何よりも何よりもmidoroが引っ掛かって
ツッコミたかったのは、隣りの「おばさん」こと
45歳独身・坂上礼子の扱われ方!
出て来る刑事達が全員、この人のことを
おばさん」と呼ぶのです。あ、あり得ない!!

内輪でこっそりと呼ぶなら分かるけど、
何で呼びかけるときにも「おばさん」なの!?
もーこれが終始気になって仕方ありませんでした。
「奥さん」と呼べないからだろうけど、
仕事で来てるんだから、関係者のことは
「坂上さん」と名前で呼べー!!

しかも、32歳の若造、浅井刑事から
呼ばれるのはともかく、なんで45歳の坂上さんが、
52歳の「おっさん」である発田刑事から
「おばさん」とか言われなきゃあかんのだ!!
midoroの父親も、自分より若い年配の女性のことを
平気で「あのおばさん」とか言って、
midoroや母親をムカつかせますが、
男性ってそういうものなの?

これが、顔見知りの近所の派出所のお巡りさんで
普段も親しく交流があってそう呼ぶのならまだしも、
県警の切れ者、特殊班刑事の華野までが、
皆さんと同じようにおばさんと呼ばせてもらいますが
って、わざわざ断って呼ぶか!?普通!
打ち解けるためにわざとフランクな対応をしてみた、
ってことなんだろうけど、刑事達だけじゃなくて、
地の文でも「おばさん」扱いなんですよ!

それに、坂上さんが寂しい独身1人暮らしで
お喋りでうるさくて噂好きで、ペットに過剰な愛情を
注いでて、っていういかにもなおばさんキャラなのは
別にいいんですけど、刑事のモノローグや地の文で
いちいち憐れっぽく語られるのがえらい不愉快です。
お前らに同情される筋合いないわ!
これってmidoroが女だから気になるだけ?
「おばさん」に感情移入しすぎですか?

この刑事達、ろくに「おばさん」に事情聴取しないし
調書も取らないので、基本的なことを聞いてなくて
後で「なんで肝心なことを言わないんだ!」とかって
怒って責めてるんですよ!普通、自分たちから
時系列順に見たことや行動を細かく確認するだろ!
自分たちのミスを棚に上げてさ。

それから、事件の関係者とはいえ、
「おばさん」を普通に現場に立ち合わせて
刑事同士の話し合いが聞こえるようにしてるくせに、
「おばさん」に話を聞かれないように声を潜めたり、
口出しして来るのを煩わしく思ったり、
だったら、「あなたはこの部屋にいて下さい」
とかって隔離すりゃいい話じゃん。

公になってない誘拐事件を捜査しているんだから、
お喋りの「おばさん」が事件の経過を全部聞いていたら、
どこから話が漏れるか分からないじゃないですか。
誘拐が狂言である可能性も疑っておきながら、
「おばさん」も犯人の協力者だという発想が
刑事たちの中でずっと出て来ないのも不思議。
「おばさん」に自分たちのご飯作らせてるし。

ということで、ツッコミどころあげたらキリないですが、
連城先生も含めて、この男どもめ!って感じで
男性視点を学べたのは興味深かったです。
あと、刑事は45歳独身女性に対し「おばさん」と
呼びかけるのかどうか、知り合いの警官に
会ったら絶対聞いておくことにします。

Several recent studies have shown Proscar is effective for hair loss and can help regrow some hair on some people, but as I said before, the use of 5AR inhibitors only deals with a part of the problem and are generally not very effective when used as the only treatment. These shampoo ingredients strip my hair of its oils, which is overkill since my hair is already dry. Certain shampoos, soaps, other body products and flea powders can cause allergic reactions to your Yorkie, resulting in loss of hair.

たけ14様、こんばんは!早速コメントありがとうございますー。
意味ありげに書かれていた理由も、後から考えれば納得が行くんですけど、どうせなら最後まで全員が怪しいままだったら良かったのにと。回想シーンの辺りから急に倒叙物っぽくなってしまったのが残念でした。

>おじいちゃんがまた言ってるよ
ププ。本当ですね。私は枝葉の方が引っ掛かっちゃってダメでしたけど、細かいマイナス点は軽く流してあげて、アイデアの素晴らしさの方を評価してあげるべきですね。盗聴器の使い方は上手かったし、目に見えない檻っていうオチも全く予想外でした。最近の本だと思って読むから、ついつい古臭く感じてしまうけれど、最初から昭和40年代頃の話だと思って読めば気にならないかもしれません。

この小説、ネタは良いのでTVドラマで見てみたいです。映像にしちゃえば文章の回りくどさも気にならないし、コウモリとか刑事の身代金とか、あの辺全部カットしちゃって。そしたら車の中での朝井刑事と母親の対峙シーンなんて、えらい盛り上がるんじゃないかと思います。「えっ、どこに犯人が!?どこどこ!?」っていうあの場面はほんと面白かったです!

Posted by: midoro | January 12, 2006 at 00:01

>midoroさんこんばんは。

むむ、これはなかなか手厳しいですね(笑)
でもよく分かります。本書は全ての登場人物を怪しげというか意味ありげに書くことで、本当に怪しいやつを隠しているんだと思いますが、いかにも思わせぶりな描写には僕も閉口しましたので。こういう細かいところが気になってしまって作品に入り込めないことって僕もよくあります。

あと自分のところでも書いたのですが、いろいろなところで作者のいささか偏った考え方が見え隠れするのもマイナスポイントですよね。僕はそのあたりは、おじいちゃんがまた言ってるよ的に読み流してしまったんですが…。

誘拐事件を一ひねりしたアイデアはものすごくいいと思うので、なんとなくもったいない感じです。
