it was ok
Read from January 27 to February 01, 2012

I'm just going to be honest: I didn't like. I didn't really get it. He writes some pretty strong images, and I thought that was good, but the rest was "bleh." I really wanted to like this book, but it got convoluted and I just couldn't follow it anymore. After the 200th page or so, I got really lost to the point where I didn't even know what was going on. I didn't like all of the sex and violence, and while I could see a reason for some of those scenes, the rest of the time just felt forced. I wouldn't say it's a terrible book, but it's too crazy for me to keep up with. I still respect Murakami as a writer, but this book was simple not my cup of tea.
