Publisher Description

A "dreamlike and compelling” tour de force (Chicago Tribune)—an astonishingly imaginative detective story, an account of a disintegrating marriage, and an excavation of the buried secrets from Japan’s forgotten campaign in Manchuria during World War II.

Now with a new introduction by the author.

In a Tokyo suburb, a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife’s missing cat—and then for his wife as well—in a netherworld beneath the city’s placid surface. As these searches intersect, he encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists. Gripping, prophetic, and suffused with comedy and menace, this is one of Haruki Murakami’s most acclaimed and beloved novels.

Mr Murakami did it again

Like a lot of his books this one also has a lot of dream like surrealism happening, All the characters have somesort of a connection. It’s hard to differentiate reality from dreams, although dreams are sort of a different reality. I enjoyed this book, a lot to unpack after reading it through.

Parallel Realities

A perfect book for our times, a modern Through the Looking Glass in many ways. Better than any counseling to allow me to accept that nothing may be as it first seems again.

Incredable

Layers and layers of amazing storytelling.
