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.
