The language in this book is good and worth reading, although I personally don’t really like the storyline. I don’t think did anything wrong, I think pursuing individual profits is human nature, but she was unfairly punished at the end of the story, which makes me upset. Also, there are lots of kanji that we did not learn in class appear in the book. So be ready for that if you wanna read this book.
この本はちょっとこわいです。おきくさんと言う女の人が死んでゆうれいになる話です。でもすごくおもしろかっ田です。日本語1年生にはちょっとむずかしいかもしれません。There quite a few expressions/verbs that we haven’t learned in 日本語１。But if you love ghost stories, this is a really good one. The pictures also explain the story pretty well, until at least halfway.
このほんはおもしろいすが、ちょうどこわいですね。The story is about a girl who believed that she was still alive even though she already died in a car accident three days ago. Her soul took a taxi to go back to home. The whole story centers around the conversation between the taxi driver and the girl’s mom. The taxi driver learned from the girl’s mom that the girl who took the taxi was not a real human. The tone of the story is warm, but the story itself can be scary to younger-age readers.
I recommend the book to students who have learned Japanese for at least one year. As a 日本語のいねんせい who have only taken Japanese for one semester, I had difficulties with vocabularies while reading the book. でも、I recommend students who are good at Kanji to try on this book, because there are many kanji in this book. Also, the pictures in the book are very helpful for readers to grab the gist of the story.
This story book is has a very creative story of Maimai and Nainai’s short adventure. Maimai finds a younger brother who is so tiny that Maimai’s parents can’t see him, but only Nainai can. When Maimai takes Nainai who lives in a walnut shell to the woods, a horse comes running at Maimai, damaging her right eye. Nainai goes into Maimai’s right eye and explores the world while Maimai is asleep. One day Nainai grabs Maimai’s dreams by the tail and pulls it in Maimai’s head, making Maimai impossible to stop dreaming. However, unfortunately Nainai gets pulled into the dream, making Maimai to forever look for Nainai in her dreams.
I recommend this book to anyone who likes scary stories. It isn’t a hard read and only takes a few minutes, but the art and story are very creepy.
