Publisher's Summary

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.

Good, brooding book, terrible reading

The dialogue was read with this incredibly grating Japanese accent. It's in translation, it's not about Japanese speakers try to speak broken, stilted English. I mean, FFS, it's not like Japanese speakers sound like they have accents when they're speaking to each other in their native language, this came off as a stupid affectation.

Charlie Chan

The narrator has the worst fake Japanese accent. Sounds more like the old racist Charlie Chan movies. It was astoundingly bad. There was absolutely no need for that fake accent. It was as though the narraration was making fun of Murakami being Japanese. I stopped listening because it was so distracting to the story. Why didn't anyone else notice ? Amazing. As a Japanese I felt insulted.
