Utgivarens beskrivning

Read the haunting love story that turned Murakami into a literary superstar.

When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire - to a time when an impetuous young woman called Midori marches into his life and he has to choose between the future and the past.

'Evocative, entertaining, sexy and funny; but then Murakami is one of the best writers around' Time Out

'Such is the exquisite, gossamer construction of Murakami's writing that everything he chooses to describe trembles with symbolic possibility' Guardian

'This book is undeniably hip, full of student uprisings, free love, booze and 1960s pop, it's also genuinely emotionally engaging, and describes the highs of adolescence as well as the lows' Independent on Sunday

Amazing work, but not for everyone

I read this book a few years ago when I was still at school and did not understand a thing and thought it was so boring. But I decided to re read again and finally understood all the complex emotions behind it and it has haunted me a few days adter finishing it which is an amazing feeling. The story so so ordinary yet the most complicated which clearly is not for everyone if your emotional stage is not yet mature or you havent experienced anything similar. If you have ever felt empty, questioned your meaning of life, suffered from depression (or knew someone like that), this is will be relatable and maybe help you to find answers of why certain things are the way they are!
