  • 少し前までは毎日のように、長男は箸を使うことを拒否し、次男はオマルに乗せると声を上げて泣いていた。子供らしい駄々と言ってしまえばそれまでだが、彼らなりに変化(成長)の必要性を認めつつも、変化を恐れていたのだと思う。妻だって知らない駅での待ち合わせを提案すれば嫌がるのを見ると、決して子供だけの話ではないことがわかる。

    このヘム&ホーの物語では、ヘムは最後まで変化を拒否し、ホーは変化に活路を見出す。ホーは逡巡を繰り返しつつも、やがて変化を恐れる心を見つめ、笑い飛ばし、そこに希望があることを発見する。このプロセスは人生を生きていく上で大事なこと。毎晩の酒で誤魔化してしまった父にも教えてあげたいけど、脳卒中で倒れてしまった今となってはもう遅い。

    一方のヘムは企業の合理化提案に拒否を貫く労働組合員のように描かれている。変化を受け入れなければメシのタネにありつけない、と救いは一切ないし、後段のdiscussionでも「(変化を受け入れなければ)We had to let them go」とあるから、筆者の視線はかなりシビアだ。

    思うに、変化を恐れる心は人間にとって必要だから備わったもの。未知の場所には害敵がいる可能性があるから、心にブレーキがかかる。これは当然のことなので、筆者ももう少し、ヘムに理解を示してあげれば良かったのに、と心情的には思う。

    英語学習を兼ねて購入したが、ナレーションは滑らかで、早すぎず遅すぎず、文章は難しすぎず易しすぎでもない。ペーパーバックも併読してより理解が深まったのも良かった。

  • 某英語学習サイトで初心者におすすめのオーディオブックとして紹介されていたので購入。
    確かに早口ではないのかも知れないけど決してゆっくりではない。翻訳本を読んだことがあったのでなんとなくわかる箇所もあったが、まだまだ聴きこみが必要。

  • A couple of days ago I'm done reading " Who moved my cheese?". I've heard about the Japanese translation version of the book ten years ago. At the time the book was very popular in Japan. However, since I was very busy to take care of my daughter at the time, I couldn't have spare time to read it even if it was written in Japanese.

    Last month I discovered the book in English at a book store. Luckily, it was sold with 20 percent discount price. I pick it up on my hand and turned some pages. It was a very thin book. Nevertheless, It looked very interesting for me. I thought if I listened to it from audio book, it would be very useful for me to improve my listening skill, turning some pages. After I bought it, I also bought same book of audio book from online shop.
    It became my first audio book.

    While I was house keeping, walking my dog and sleeping, I listened to the audio book every day. In addition to that, I read same book. Since both audio book and actual book were easy for me to listen to and read, I could enjoy both listening and reading.

    The book was very interesting for me. In the saga, four characters who had different characters lived in a Maze. Two were mice, and two of left were tiny human beings. They were look for their cheeses to survive in a Maze every day; one day they found very nice cheeses at cheese station C. They had quit searching any cheeses from the day; they went to the cheese station C to eat every day. However, one day when they went to there, they realized that all cheeses disappeared from the station. Then they came to show different attitudes to figure out their new cheeses.

    I think most of us are afraid of changing our circumstances. We aren't able to accept our changing easily. It always happened to us: when we have to change our job, getting marriage, moving to other place, graduation, entrance schools or offices or meeting death of our lovable people.
    We try to avoid to put ourselves into hard and tough situation. In the story cheese is a metaphor of our most important things in our entire lives. If we lost it, how change we did. That's the point in the story.
    I think after you read it, you have started to think who you are in the saga. I think I'm mixed Hem and Haw. I sometimes can adjust myself new circumstances, but it sometimes hard for me.
    I'm sure that after you read it, you could learn how to convert your opinions.
