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.

one of my favorite books

the perfect mix of surrealism, metaphysics, hilarity, & realism: everything it means to be human expressed in the most unbeliavably imaginative manner.

Wow

If you're not used to Murakami's bizarre writing style, I think you'll either love this book or be lost. Murakami takes you through the stories of two individuals that are both searching for something quite important. It is truly an emotional, humanistic tale that takes you on quite a ride. I would highly recommend this book. It's fantastic.
