I wavered between 1 and 5 stars while I was reading. I settle on 3 for these reasons: On the more stars side, Murakami's story is engaging and entertaining. I was curious to learn what would happen.

This is the first new Murakami book since I started reading Murakami. --About six months after I finished this book, and I've just lowered the rating. Why, why have I done this? 1Q84 was a Murakami marathon, and by the time I finally finished it, I think I was experiencing a runner's high. Now I've ...

Weird and wonderful, and surprisingly linear for a Murakami novel, with only a smattering of things left unresolved. I wouldn't recommend this one as an introduction to the author, but his fans will be pleased with the opportunity to spend a large stretch of time in his bizzare world. If you haven'...
