Review:
I'm really pleased I have finally read my first Murakami book, and it definitely won't be the last.

This is a strange book. For me, if I'm to enjoy any kind of romance, it has to be something special, and this definitely is. The love story is fascinating and I especially loved the main characters in this book. There's a darkness to the whole story that quite appeals to me.

However, I did read this during a very stressful time, so I think that took some enjoyment from it and it felt like I spent ages finishing this. There are parts in this that I found boring and yet others that were uttrely entrancing, and those parts make me want to read more of his works.

Definitely not a book for everyone, but if you like the weird ones, here you go.
