Confessions (2008) by Kanae Minato

My copy was translated by Stephen Snyder

My Review:

Confessions is a hauntingly gripping story about love, loss, motherly bonds, and the worst of human nature. I appreciate how all of the characters are multidimensional, deep and consistent in their actions.

I found it as hard not to understand where they were coming from and, at the same time, remain shocked and disturbed by their actions. Minato did a great job threading the line of revealing their motivation without excusing their behaviour.

Confessions is a book that will linger with me for a while.
