A Creepy Thriller
on 6 May 2009
After reading 'Grotesque' last year, I decided to give 'Out' a try. I thought it got off to a very good start, as the reader is immediately immersed in the life of drudgery of the four main female characters, who work the nighshift in a boxed lunch factory, in the Tokyo suburbs.
The character development, particularly early on is very good, and the writing is vivid throughout. However, I felt after the inital murder, and body disposal, the novel became less interesting for me. I'm not really sure why, as there were still a number of events unfolding in the storyline. Overall, though a fairly good, and at times creepy novel.
