  • A small change of style for Murakami

    by on

    As with all Murakami novels, I loved this book. Couldn't put it down
    There are some small differences between this and a lot of his other novels, written from the point of view of an older character than many of his books. This doesn't detract at all. Go buy it. Read it. Enjoy it
