Publisher Description

Kafka on the Shore displays one of the world’s great storytellers at the peak of his powers.

Here we meet a teenage boy, Kafka Tamura, who is on the run, and Nakata, an aging simpleton who is drawn to Kafka for reasons that he cannot fathom. As their paths converge, acclaimed author Haruki Murakami enfolds readers in a world where cats talk, fish fall from the sky, and spirits slip out of their bodies to make love or commit murder, in what is a truly remarkable journey.

Music Omnivore 2 ,

A page turner

I never would have thought a Murakami novel could be a page turner. But this one is. My previous attempt at a Murakami novel was 1Q84. I was unable to finish that; at the two third mark, I just did not care what happens to the plot or the characters. This one is different. The arc of the main characters are super interesting. And the characters undergo change in an interesting fashion. Really fun.

On the fence but I’m here for it.

I mean you know where is gonna go but you stilll go to be proven wrong but your not mad it went exactly where it was gonna go. Chill read some slow parts but worth it like a Sunday afternoon

Boring and silly

I managed to force myself to get halfway through this book until finally admitting defeat. Just incredibly boring
