I could recommend it to someone who likes a classic romance in terms of writing style or stories about soap operas.
I liked the aspects of the story within the story. We have the main characters who are actors falling in love with each other in their real life, but we also get glimpses into the story on their soap opera. There were nice parallels between the two love stories, and that made it an enjoyable listen.
She's inconsistent with her voices. She obviously took the time to develop different voices for the different characters, but there would be times in the story where all speaking characters sounded exactly the same. That is confusing! My favorite narrators never make those kinds of mistakes in the final product, and it was jarring enough that I may skip other titles from this narrator.
On the whole, yes.
Thanks for the Valentine's member freebie, Audible. Those treats every so often are really fun, and it helps give me exposure to new authors and narrators... just like with this story!
I am not yet at intermediate level of Japanese, but I bought this audiobook anyway. I really like the stories that the teachers use to teach the language. There are some interesting characters and scenarios. Plus there are some fairy tales and culture put into everything in an easy way.
It is also a fun listen because the speakers seem to have good senses of humor. The wit, even with a second language, is evident, and they all seem to enjoy working with each other.
