Highly enjoyable!

This was my first Murakami and I was rewarded tremendously for checking it out when I saw it. It was a little stranger than expected but as a long time reader of sci fi and fantasy I'm used to strange things happening. Oh and I LOVED the ending.

Love it!

I selected this book for my book club. I loved this book, but then again I am a huge Murakami fan. It's definitely on par with Kafka on the Shore and the Wind-up Bird Chronicle.

The opinion of my book club, which most of which had never read any Murakami, was that there was too much gratuitous sex. I, of course, disagree- sex is an integral part of both the human condition, which Murakami is always after.
