The new novel - a book that sold more than a million copies the first week it went on sale in Japan - from the internationally acclaimed author, his first since IQ84.
Here he gives us the remarkable story of Tsukuru Tazaki, a young man haunted by a great loss; of dreams and nightmares that have unintended consequences for the world around us; and of a journey into the past that is necessary to mend the present. It is a story of love, friendship, and heartbreak for the ages.

Great book ruined by the narration
Whoever directed this audiobook was out of touch with the spirit of Murikami's message. The reader is to take on Tsukuru's life, to become him and travel through his story. This is the way all Murikami books are meant to be read; and to produce an audiobook for English speaking audiences but narrate it with an accent creates a barrier between the reader and the character. Be warned, it isn't good. The narrator sounds board and flat and with the accent it really clashes with what we (the Murikami fan's) expect. My advice, skip the audiobook and read this one.
