Out

by Natsuo Kirino

Set in modern Japan, this is a tense and compelling read. It tells the tale of four ordinary working-class women and the profound effect that one event has on their lives. At first glance I didn't think I would enjoy this book but I was totally wrong - I was hooked from the first page and couldn't put it down.

Comments

I did not think I would like this book, but once I got into it I couldn't put it down. The characters came to life although they were living in a completely different culture to mine. Although the re-actions of the women seem unbelieveable in retrospect, whilst reading the book, it all seemd to follow inevtiably from the first desperate act. Quite a dark and disturbing book, but a good insight into modern Japan and the pressures people face.
