      My first Murakami. Readup has been pushing it! A fun read throughout, but oh so gripping in the end...

      Murakami’s wandering yarn might turn some people off, but, when it hits, it sticks to your heart like the sudden rush of a new favorite song. I DIG IT

      As always enchanting to read...

      I wasn’t what you’d call a reader, who goes through books systematically and attentively, but more the type who finds it hard to pass the time without something to read. I could never just sit, still and silent. I always had to be turning the pages of a book or listening to music, one or the other. When there was no book lying around, I’d grab anything printed. I’d read a phone book, an instruction manual for a steam iron. Compared with those kinds of reading material, a supplementary reader for a Japanese-language textbook was far better.
