Narration is slightly annoying, especially the singing of Nirvana songs. It happened frequently enough that I muted parts out of embarrassment for the narrator.
The story is mildly interesting. As an Asian female I feel that the cultural gap is a bit
exaggerated for the attention of the reader. Parts are a bit poseur/inauthentic and the characters are undeveloped, but entertaining enough. Great for listening to at work!

Fresh and Satisfying
I'm not sure what caused me to purchase this book in the first place: it's totally different from my usual fare, and there were a couple of negative reviews that almost pursuaded me to skip it. I consider it a fortunate accident that I went ahead with my purchase.
If you enjoy the type of dark humor found in shows such as Dexter, you'll love Hello Kitty Must Die. I don't count myself among the easily amused, but I lost count of the times I laughed out loud on the metro listening to the heroine's machinations.
I do agree with a previous reviewer that the singing can get pretty annoying, but do not let this discourage you from downloading this book. The singing abates after the first few chapters as the story become more complex. (Either that or one becomes inured to it.)
Overall, the book is fresh, witty, funny and satisfying.
