(4,438 Sterne; 16 Bewertungen)

Kottō contains 20 Japanese stories, collected from different sources and translated by Lafcadio Hearn. The types of stories in this collection are widespread: There are old ghost stories Hearn is best known for (The Legend of Yurei-Daki), his own observations and musings (Pathological), as well as the translation of 'A Woman's Diary', a touching account of the life of the poorer classes in Tokyo, written at the end of the 19th century.

A Real Gem

(5 Sterne)

These stories are amazingly beautiful and often quite poignant. You will fall in love with this audiobook! Check out wiki about the author--he was a real character. I was listening to these tales at night and found myself getting quite caught up in their timeless, wistful quality. Wow. Another 5 stars for the book and the readers. Thanks, Librivox.
