In this propulsive novel by the author of Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World and The Elephant Vanishes, one of the most idiosyncratically brilliant writers at work in any language fuses science fiction, the hard-boiled thriller, and white-hot satire into a new element of the literary periodic table.As he searches for a mysteriously vanished girlfriend, Haruki Murakami's protagonist plunges into a wind tunnel of sexual violence and metaphysical dread in which he collides with call girls; plays chaperone to a lovely teenaged psychic; and receives cryptic instructions from a shabby but oracular Sheep Man. Dance Dance Dance is a tense, poignant, and often hilarious ride through the cultural Cuisinart that is contemporary Japan, a place where everything that is not up for sale is up for grabs.

Good, but not as excellent a "A Wild Sheep Chase."I wasn't convinced that a sequel was completely necessary. Of course, it wasn't unwelcome either. It just didn't strike me with that 'truly amazing' quality that the previous one did.I'd be interested to read the two related novels that preceded thes...
I gave up on trying to understand what the book is trying to convey. Overall it's an easy read. Norwegian Wood next.Life is for living. You gotta keep dancing.
حسنًا إذًا انتهى الرقص .. وآن لنا الآن .. أن نجمع "النقطة" ! مممممم الذين يعرفون "هاروكي" قطعًا لن يعتبروا هذه الرواية من الروائع، ولكن فيها كل ما في عالم هذا الرجل من سـرد سلس ومتدفق، وعوالم يمتزج فيها الواقع بالخيال والحقائق بالوهم والأحلام قد يجلس الكثيرون بعد هذه الرواية ينظرون للعالم والأهداف...
