Critic Reviews

"These six stories, all loosely connected to the disastrous 1995 earthquake in Kobe, are Murakami at his best. The writer, who returned to live in Japan after the Kobe earthquake, measures his country's suffering and finds reassurance in the inevitability that love will surmount tragedy, mustering his casually elegant prose and keen sense of the absurd in the service of healing."

Excellent

True Murakami! This was the best story I have dowloaded yet. I have read severval Murakami and this is up there with Wind Up Bird. Some of the stories are strange but they easily pull you in. The last one had me in tears. I would recommended this book to anyone even if you aren't a great fan of Murakami, as I am.

Addicting

Haruki's imagination is immense. There is no psychotic killer lurking; no murder to be solved. But as each story unfolds the listener is treated to chuckles because humor abounds. Mundane becomes fun and wonderous within his novels.
I've listen to all on audible and anxious for his next book.
