nice audio, appropriate reading speed with clear sound. I have read the book already, the audio can substitute book
"Not my Cup of tea"
This book is beautiful written but I didnt like it at all, I've heard great things about it but nothing much happened in this story and I think I need an ounce of joy in a book and this was quite miserable.
"Good book, reading not to my taste"
I enjoyed the book despite not liking the portrayal of some of the characters by the reader and I found some of the expression a bit repetitive.
A beautiful contemplative book. I felt like I could relate to watanabe , his periods of melancholia and his outlook on the world really resonated with me
"Can it be possible? Unlistenable Murakami!"
It's ENTIRELY MY OWN FAULT for not listening to the excerpt(a mistake I haven't made since) before downloading - if I'd heard the voice of the narrator, I'd have saved myself the heartache of hearing such a beautiful, lyrical, moving book being mangled and stomped on by the awful reading. The total lack of genuine sensitivity and the entirely unsuccessful attempts to give life to the female characters marks this out for me as the worst listening experience I've so far had with audible. But you may like it - and it's a gorgeous book.
"It has its moments...but not special enough"
the narrator was bearable, but only just, he did not help this rather indulgently silly story, especially with his ghastly attempt to narrate the female characters. i could not get interested in these peoples lives. the odd description of some beauty scattered about in there, but mostly lightweight and contrived.
