Why You Should Read 100万回生きたきみ
100-man kai Ikita Kimi, or “You Who Lived A Million Lives”, does a great job at pulling the rug from under you at every corner. This romance novel is full of twists and turns that will keep you glued to the pages. At least for the first few pages.
I personally felt the middle of the story started to lag, and the ending could have been a lot better. There were some things that happened that turned me off the story at the end, but it did make me cry and I’m glad I read it.
I don’t want to say more than that, because I don’t want to spoil the twists!
Why Japanese Learners Should Read 100万回生きたきみ
This is a great book for a variety of Japanese practice. The first chapter is slice-of-life with N3 level Japanese but then jumps up to classic high-fantasy Japanese, which is a big spike in difficulty but is a lot of fun!
I really liked parts of this book but didn’t like other parts. Despite that, I’m glad I read this novel.
If you like romance and fantasy, and stories that are designed to make you cry, then this is the book for you!
