Read in January, 2002

This was my first Murakami experience and I don't know if I was adequately prepared for what to expect. In 2002, a guy I was briefly seeing raved about Murakami and gave this book to me with the highest recommendation but, just as our relationship quickly fizzled, so did this book. However much I liked the novel's first half, the aimless and other-worldy ending turned me off Murakami until 2005, when I had to cancel a trip to Japan the day before my flight and ended up going to the hospital and reading Wind-Up Bird Chronicle instead. And that's when my love-affair with Murakami began, not back in college. I may return to The Wild Sheep Chase one day, not because I expect my reaction will be different, but to immerse myself in Murakami's world again, since his latest offerings have been consistently disappointing. Where did the magic go? Has he lost his super-powers?
