Is there anything you would change about this book?
What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)
How could the performance have been better?
As a professional Japanese linguist I felt the narrator should have used the Japanese order of last name/first name instead of following the western style of first name/last name. Why follow the western style in names when he pronounces Japanese words as a Japanese speaker would while speaking English? At some level pronouncing Japanese words with English inflections is okay - the narration sounds stilted and unnatural when he switches back and forth from English to pronouncing Japanese words as a Japanese native speaker would. Don't mean to be pedantic but linguists will know what I am referring to. The narrator's narration is not smooth plus monotone - which makes for dull listening.
Was Ametora worth the listening time?
No. I should have gotten the hard cover book.
Any additional comments?
I was tempted to return the book based on the narration but enjoyed the content so decided not to.
