it was ok
bookshelves: audio, fiction

Definitely my least favorite Murakami I've read. I didn't dislike this, there just wasn't much to resonate with me. This felt kind of like a coming-of-age story and it involving a 19-year-old college student caught in a semi-love triangle just didn't interest me much. The love interests were each depressing in their own way for me--a former girlfriend of a mutual friend who had committed suicide or a girl involved with a man who treats her poorly.

This tackles a lot of mental illness and suicide amid a lot of casual sex involving the narrator. (view spoiler)
