A chilling listen
I picked this book specifically because of its tie in with Japanese mythology. I was not disappointed! Invoking images from Ringu and Ju- On Girl from the Well delivered on that aspect. There were some small details that irked me, some if the information / mythology was wrong and I didn't care for all of the voice actors performances but all in all a very enjoyable listen.

Excellent Story, not a great reader
The story is excellent, beyond excellent. However, the reader doesn't fit with it, doesn't sound like the character at all. It's more than a centuries old Japanese ghost not fitting with the voice of the reader. The reader doesn't connect to the character mentally, she doesn't have a feel for Okiku. The poetry tucked into the prose gets lost in the flatness of her voice. She doesn't have different voices for the characters and doesn't infuse her voice with emotion.
