really liked it
Recommended for: anyone who loves surrealist short stories
Read in November, 2008 , read count: once, so far.

My only complaint with this book is that the stories are translated by two authors. I would have rather had only one translator in order to have a consistent reading of the text. That aside, this collection of stories now enters my pantheon of favorite books. Murakami's ability to expound upon those small random, quirky, and often defining moments of an everyday existence is charming,enlightening and very satisfying.
