Potjy | 127 comments I read it quite a long time ago. So I might not remember everything correctly. But I think the beginning in the plane happened sometime after the main part. Toru thought of all the story because he heard the song.

I don't know whether this is your first Murakami or not. But his books usually left many unanswered (and unanswerable) questions/incidents. Many people love him just because of that, including me.

Potjy | 127 comments Curious... I never think Toru would be with Midori after the story. He seemed to have no tender feeling toward her. But now you make me think. That might because he'd been with her for too long, and get bored. Or else?

This kind of remind me of that Hitchcock film, Vertigo, when a man was so obsessed with the lost woman that he could not live with the real woman. Poor guys!
