Beautiful Collection

I was amazed at the variety and significance of this collection. Yes, if you stop at the first story then, no you may not like it but some of the best gems are later on...A couple of these stories were even able to help me readjust my paranoia about turning 30. :) The last one in particular is a terriffic small mystery that keeps you guessing. I enjoy stories that focus on quirky and flawed characters, this is an excellent example of such a collection. No, many of them dont "go" anywhere, or you feel as though it stops just at the best part, however, it definetly allows you to use your own imagination to fill in the blanks or finish the story.
I thoroughly enjoyed this collection, it was a terrific comanion piece to read just after Kafka on the Shore.

Wonderful Listen

I really enjoyed this collection. Murakami has a wonderful way of painting characters with incredible detail. I especially loved the Dancing Dwarf, a story with so many unexpected twists it kept me completely intrigued. I would highly recommend this one.
