AMAZING. Not only does the author present the Japanese culture in a very different matter, but also manages to make the story thrilling, entertaining, and at times scary. I love this book from beginning to end and everything in between.

Not only did it read well, but it presented different characters from different social realms and have them even interact with each other in such a way that made the story all the more captivating. In addition , the author does a great job of making each character's personality come out through the pages. I found myself cursing at one particular character who drove me crazy and whose end actually made me happy. lol.

Overall, I highly recommend this book if you are looking for a thriller, crime filled book. I appreciate the author presenting the Japanese culture and societal hierarchies within the novel because it gives us somewhat of a taste of how things are in a different part of the world. I'm not going to pretend like I know a lot about Japanese culture, but I feel that in this book it added to the allure of the novel.

I admire the author's talent in writing such a gruesome story, but also tying it all together with each character presented in the plot as well as presenting psychological points of view within the book.

This is a difficult book to read. None of the characters come off particularly well, as each of them (most of them women) tell their version of events leading up to, and the subsequent fall out of the murders of two schoolmates, who for various reasons have descended into prostitution.[return][return]Each of the women have their own problems, in being too beautiful, not beautiful enough, wanting something unachievable, having pressure put on them externally and internally to be *more*.[return][return]Found it difficult to get any sympathy for any of the characters (if I remember the previous book "Out" correctly, I think they were a little more sympathetic even if they weren't much nicer).… (lisätietoja)

What happens when you cross the line....when you discover a taste for the unthinkable?[return][return]really rather good, even after having been translated from the Japanese. Had a little difficulty with the names at first,but soon settled. [return][return]Four Japanese Women, working in a factory, get drawn deeper into crime to cover up their increasingly deperate actions
