Every paragraph in this very early novel, from a favourite author of mine, "flashed forward" to me as I recognised elements/links/ themes to the many novels Murakami went on to write. Cats, wells, obsession, glorious lyricism and inventiveness-all restrained here, blossomed as the author gained momentum. How exciting to have this insight..and unlike another favourite author whose first novel was translated and released much later than the main body of work, this novel stands up to scrutiny. It is a gentle riff on melancholy and youth as it grasps the significance of "the future"-the perhaps.

overhyped. a real nonsense story. narration was good but the story is merely a poor ramble.
