Out アウト (Ebook or kindle) by Natsuo Kirino


Out アウトComes the focus and the sense that someone is watching her that a trap is tightening around her threatens her calm composure and orderly existenceThis isn t a whodunit crime novel nor a formulaic one This is original literary crime that would not adapt well to any other setting but Japan Tokyo in articular where the novel is set Having lived in the country for three years I found myself living there again while reading this book the descriptions the characters their reactions and motivations it was all so very real so believable The weather for instance hot and humid and wet in summer the smell and the sweat it all came back so clearly The attitudes too and the urban landscape rice fields in between factories run down houses suished along allies bicycles and umbrellas and the rubbish collection spotsOne of the wonderful things about this book is the way it is written Despite one or two obvious metaphors the The Contemporaries prose has a tight tense yet steadyatient rhythm creating suspense along the way by never hurrying The chapters alternate in UML Weekend Crash Course [With CDROM] point of view narration between the main characters with theirersonalities coming through strongly despite the fact that the tone doesn t change I want to find an example and really I don t have to look far She could hear a horn tooting somewhere nearby the sound tofu trucks use to advertise their wares and through the open windows around her the sound of dishes rattling and televisions blaring It was the hour when the women of the city bustled around their kitchens Masako thought of her own neat empty kitchen and her bathroom where the deed had been done It occurred to her that lately she felt at home in a dry scoured bathroom than a busy homey kitchen Steampunk Erotica p146 He had been a model of self control had worked so hard to keep his dark side sealed away But he knew that even a hint of what he d done would terrify othereople Still only he and the woman herself knew the truth about what had happened and no one else could understand what he d been up to It had been Satake s misfortune to taste the forbidden fruit when he was twenty six and he d been cut off from the normal world ever since Poker Slave p179As far as the social commentary aspect goes it s a biting unglamorous look at Japanese society and also a revealing study of thelight of the impoverished exhausted women like Yoshi the greedy superficial consumers like Kuniko the intelligent hard working but discriminated and underpaid office girls like Masako had been and the victimised housewives like Yayoi The lengths these women go to for some money for escape for freedom have devestating conseuences for all of them The lay between genders is also explored or rather held up for review it may come across as old hat but don t forget this is Japan which is still confined by many traditions that see women and foreigners subjugated and restricted to the role of second class citizen Despite the deeply flawed characters and the things they do Masako emerges as a strong heroine and even the male characters I felt some sympathy for The blurb describes it as having a itch black comedy of gender warfare and that s definitely an intrinsic Indulge (Warm Delicacy, part of this novel Sometimes though it was just too hard to find the irony amusingThere s a lot I could say about this book but really I just want to stress how much I loved it I came across only one typo an is instead of it which is almost unheard of And if you reut off by the Japanese names here s a uick lesson Japanese when converted into Romaji our alphabet is very easy to Tabloid City pronounce Each letter translates into five vowels an n sound and consonant vowelairings So Masako is Kirkland Revels pronounced Ma sa ko Easy Yayoi isronounced Ya yo i i as in easy but a short sound Satake is To Him Who Sits on the Throne pronounced Sa ta ke ke as in kettle Kazuo isronounce Ka zu o or kaz u o Shinjuko is ronounced Shin ju ku See easy There s a great rhythm to it like those clapping games Unless there s a double vowel vowels and airings are Youth, Beautiful Youth pronounced with short sounds generally There s no r or v in Japanese so these letters are given an l and bronounciation Tsu is the most difficult sound for foreigners to make and we don t have an euivalentWhile I m at it it may be helpful to get the money conversion 1000 yen is roughly about 10 10000 yen is 100 and so on Just imagine a decimile oint or remove a zero something like that So when Yayoi ays Yoshi and Kuniko 500000 yen for their Fault Lines part in getting rid of her husband that s about 5000 and when she talks about getting 50 million yen insurance money she is getting about 500000 Hope my maths is holding up here Reviewing good books has always been difficult for me Not because I don t know what to say but because I don t want to say too much Part of the wonder of reading for me is discovery

Natsuo Kirino's novel tells a story of random violence in the staid Tokyo suburbs as a young mother who works a night shift making boxed lunches brutally strangles her deadbeat husband and then seeks the help of her co workers to dispose of the body and cover up her crimeThe ringleader of this cover up Masako Katori emerges as the emotional heart of W them Kirino does a fine job of characterization dialogue and scene setting This is the underbelly of Japan in the 1990s but like I said it could be any country We ve all got the maniacal misogynistic bosses distant husbands and children obnoxious in laws sychopathic rapists and various other creeps who make up this motley crew I felt sorry for the women especially Yoshie who had a disabled mother in law 2 ungrateful daughters a dead husband no money a crappy job and a teeny tiny house to take care of them inThis book is only for the stout hearted as there are descriptions of 2 beyond brutal rapes and dismemberment of corpses It keeps you hopping and I never ever guessed how it would end and like other readers I didn t care for the ending and disagree with it wholeheartedly Let s start with a few descriptors from the blurbs on the cover nervy Mother India perverse dark gruesome depressing daring disturbing brutal unsentimental scathing gutsy hair raising You get theicture After all that build up it seems like a come down to say that this is basically a story about four thirtyish lower class or lower middle class Japanese women who work night shift filling box lunches in a factory With the increasingly common globalized life style their lives and families are a lot like those in the USA The women have money The Late Romances problems of course and to varying degrees unloving husbands who have already left are abusive or are unfaithful One husband is burning the family savings on gambling androstitutes Another husband is distant living in a separate room and hardly speaking to his wife the high school aged son is now following the same Passion for Christ, Passion for Humanity pattern and has not said a word to his mother for than a year Daughters are useless one steals money and another daughter appears only occasionally to dump off a child with grandma steal money and disappear again Thelot begins when one of the women kills her husband The other three women agree to help her dispose of his body The My Curvy Valentine (Perfect Fit, plot builds from two directions theolice are suspicious and start nosing around and the Japanese underworld the mafia like yakuzas take an interest and offer the women shall we say additional business opportunities In effect we have a black comedy that focuses on the ineualities of women in male dominated Japanese society which looks a lot like 1950 s American society The book was originally Attainment (Temptation, published in Japan in 1997 and translated in 2003 Women executives areaid less for work women are humiliated and driven out if they complain or object men do what they want and women are just supposed to take it One woman still takes care of her incapacitated mother in law changing diapers and bathing her even though her husband the invalid s son has abandoned her Why Because that is what the society expects her to do But women aren t let off the hook by this female Japanese author Much of the time their mutual friendship seems like a reluctant foursome built around backbiting jealously blackmail and one upmanship In fact most of the time they hardly seem to like each other a situation that worsens as they get dragged in deeper by their misdeeds In addition to the socio economic class focus of the book we learn a lot about Chinese Hatred in the belly prostitutes and ethnic Japanese Brazilian laborers who are some of the very few immigrants groups that have been allowed into insularun intended Japan one of the most ethnically isolated societies in the world This is uite a read filled with local color of 1990 s Japan if you don t mind some graphic violence and sex There s just something about Japan that Always Be Ready produces the grittiest darkest scariest most realistic
