A very good read. While the prose was unusual to this American reader, none of the meaning was lost. This book is about a group of women who work together in a factory. When one woman murders her husband, her friends help her and find themselves drawn into something bigger than they could have imagined. Our hero, Masako, is a complex character who pops out of her assumed role as wife and mother and finds that she has a much more sinister side lurking just below the surface. A perfect ending that is organic and within character. The only warning I'd put is that there is a lot of gore and a few rape scenes.
