Finally finished this one, shortly after my birthday. I had meant to read it on my birthday, for obvious reasons, but I'm glad I didn't, since most of the stories are rather depressing (plus I had more exciting things to do than read). But I am glad I read it. The stories can be downers but are very good, some more than others, some simply wonderful. Almost all worthwhile and intriguing. Some aren't very Murakami, but then, he didn't write them, so that's to be expected. Overall, though, a worthwhile read. Great snapshots of human life.
