I still don't quite know what to think of this book. I can't believe after almost 1200 pages that the resolution didn't feel quite complete. I wish that the scenes of Tengo worrying about his mom's boob (which still make no sense to me) could have been cut to give me more detail in the end!

I did enjoy most of the writing, and I appreciated all the references to other literature. I think I will try another of Murakami's book because I liked the whimsical style, I just hope they're not all this long or quite so bizarre.

I don't know that I would have made it through this without Kara to talk to about it! And I definitely need to read 1984 soon.
