5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously dark and dangerous, 11 Mar 2009
By 
This review is from: Out (Paperback)
I bought "Out" from Amazon having come across it whilst browsing - definitely an impulse buy that was absolutely worth it, and has given me the crime/thriller novel bug!

The characters are all animated in their own ways, standing out in the dreary, realistic setting. The plot was gripping, told in such intricate detail it had me hooked from beginning to end. The way in which Kirino has flipped the traditional crime/thriller plot to be so it is told mainly from the killer's accomplices/colleagues/friends' point of view, who, ironically, bear most of the consequences of the killer's actions, is magnificently created. The gruesome climax was very unexpected, to me at least, told with clever and dark, (yet at times crudely explicit), detail, so much so that I wouldn't be suprised if it was to get a visual imitation in the future.

I've rated this novel deservedly high, having exceeded all of my expectations, and, I think, reflects Kirino's brilliance as predominantly a promising novelist but also, a creative artist.
