The 2 most stand-out things about this story…. are both told up front in the summary, which I didn’t read. It’s slow as all hell, good god, it’s nothing, if not slow. And I noticed it was extremely similar to the anime version of Inuyasha. (I can’t comment on the manga, I haven’t read it yet and anime/manga aren’t usually my thing.)
It may leave this review a bit lacking, but I genuinely have been struggling to find anything else to say about it. Every time I think of the plot, I think of how slow it is and make a bunch of Inuyahsa crossover references. But I know not everybody will have watched that show, so a list of meaningless references isn’t going to help.
It’s a good book. It’s slow as a crockpot (to steal a line from Aron Beauregard), I didn’t struggle as much with the Japanese cultural references as I did with the …. whatever the other series was called by Nicolette Andrews. The Snow White, Little Red Riding Hood and Little Mermaid retellings. Which are a separate series, but set in the same world. I’m also unsure of the timeline of these stories, but I think this might be set prior.
I didn’t find any issues with the narrator, or the audio itself. I never had trouble telling who was speaking. Everything was clean and clear, easy to follow along and slow as all hell. I really can’t stess that enough.
