it was amazing
bookshelves: definitely-recommended
Read in January, 2006

This was the first Murakami I read and still one of my favorites. It is lighter emotionally than most of his other works and very story driven. But like all his works leaves plenty of room for your own related introspection.

I've heard others say to read The Wind-up Bird Chornicles or Norwegian Wood first if you are new to Murakami. I'd say if you have read many odd, meandering, reflective tales sure go for Wind-up Bird or if you really like stories that make you cry on the bus, Norwegian Wood is your book (It is fantastic) but if either of those aren't you, start here, with the End of the World.
