If you want to read a romantic and straight forward book, Then The Sound of Waves, by Yukio Mishima, is right for you. This book have very easy ideas and easy to understand. It is like many other romantic stories and you can pretty much predict. For me I didn't really like the book because it is too concrete. I like to solve problem and figure out what is going to come next, but this book did not give me the chance to do so. However, the cover and introduction of the book really caught my attention and basically that is why I chose the book.
The book is about two teenagers fell in love the first time they met. Unfortunately, both of them had an arrangement of marriage with someone else, so the two lovers need to go through some obstacle to get together. Both of them need to find ways to deal with their parent and people in the village.
So if you want to read a book that is simple and easy to understand, then I recommend you to read this book. Because it is so easy to understand, it does increase your reading rate and build up your vocabulary. Overall, this book is not too bad, and not the best.
