The narrative is sensational (except for one poem in wich the make an ugly fake children voice).The selection of material really good; however if you want to listen a particular poem or fragment it is impossible, because it would mean to add a bookmarks to every single poem to be able to return to it later, besides, you can only know who is narrating if you recognize the voice, which actually sucks.
Both the complex and simple characters. The spirit of Miss Elizabeth Bennet, so contrasting yet complementary to the one of Mr. Darcy.
It reminded me of Jane Eyre, both depict strong personalities and complicated interactions, as well a strong moral component on the main characters.
The naturality of the rhythm, the subtle impersonation of the characters, and the fluidity of the narration.
Strong characters on a moving romantic story.
I loved it as much as I loved the book.
Although intricate, the story is fascinating. The ability of Murakami to make the descriptions of everyday life so intriguing, natural and easy to read continues to amaze me. In this case I preferred not to keep on listening because I was falling sleep due to the tone and intonation of the voice. The sullen sensation is given by the narrative, it is too much to emphasize so strongly with the reading.
The fact that it depicts you the actual Tokyo (according to those who have lived there) and makes you believe on this magical transformations.
It felt forced and made me loose concentration, like overacted.
It, again, made me yearn to know Tokyo.
