It is a book that I liked very much. Somehow the author catches me with his mixture of reality, fiction and surrealistic things.
It is too strange to tell the story in short here... there is a search, a developing friendship, a boy falling in love and having his first experience, the same boy experiencing loneliness...
If you like the mixture I decribed above, you should try it.

Elena Well, can't say that it is my favorite one, especially after "The wind-up Bird Chronicls" or"End of the world", or "Norvegian wood", but weird, surrealistic and wonderful worlds of H.Murakami again attracts my attention. The enigmatic story of a young boy, his life experience catches me and made wondering what will happens next. And one more. I found it's strange, but much more then the story itself, I like those parts, which were devoted to music and its influence on the main characters.
