    A highly absorbing book

    Truly interesting characters fully developed over the course of the book. Great detail in the small things that just kept my attention. I highly recommend this book.

    Good start but loses traction

    The first chapter is amazing and goes on into a very addictive first book. Unfortunately it drags on from second book onwards

    Best magic realism story

    It's totally worth my time. I've spent a few years reading. Sometimes, I forgot about it and I re read book 1 a few times. I hope it's made into a drama.

    A Good Book

    My review is simple. As an avid reader, this is my definition of a good book. Granted, I only assign books into a good book bad book binary, so this isn't saying much. However, I must add that this is only the twelfth book to make the list. The characters are strangely likable despite them all having bizarre... fetishes. And everything seems so real even though the book is steeped in magical realism (which is, after all, the goal of Magical realism). Murakami is one of the few writers that can catch people within the first chapter. So get a preview, read the first chapter, realize it's amazing, buy the book. Or skip all that and just buy the book now. The e-version is best since the physical book is so thick; makes it hard to carry.
