really liked it
bookshelves: fiction

I really liked the "do you really want to hear this? It's a long story" aspects of this book, and the stories within the story. Definitely the most David Lynchian book I have ever read-gives you that special Black Lodge creeped out feeling. In this case with the added horrors of war.
But, yet again, I have to say I was waiting for the heart-stopping great little snippets that I found in Norwegian Wood and Kafka on the Shore. They weren't here so much. This was way better than Hardboiled Wonderland, but just not as throbbingly wonderful as the other favorites. And yet the 600 pages flew by. Seriously.
