I have the sneaking suspicion this is one of the books I'll finish having no idea what's it about.

That's exactly how I felt like after reading this book. Still debating with myself, whether I should give something else by Murakami a try.

Maybe you should try Norwegian Wood? That's his least surreal/most accessible book, I think. And it's beautiful. :)

I don't know. I usually like surreal books (and heavy symbolism) *sighs* I thought perhaps to go for a short story collection.

Yeah, finished it and oh well. It's weird, because I'm usually into books like this. But I own a copy of one of his other novels (Hard-Boiled Wonderland) - both were given to me years ago - and I guess I'm gonna read it sooner or later.

This! It's a while since I've read the book, but those were pretty much my thoughts and my words when asked whether I would recommend the book afterwards.

Yeah, I felt the same way after reading it. But don't give up on Murakami! He is an amazing author. I highly recommend his novel Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World. It blew my mind.

Hehe, this is perfect, since the second Murakami novel on my reading stack happens to be Hard-Boiled Wonderland. :D
