This book makes no sense to me. I wanted to like it, but I just wanted to reach into the book and smack Haruki Murakami so hard. It's so vague and non-explanatory! It just gives you all these open ended things, and the characters are driven in a strange way that the reader isn't informed of. You have no way of accessing it, it's just reading a bunch of unlikely characters doing nonsensical things, with no logic, and no rhyme or reason behind them. There's no motivation behind anything they do, it's all like they've got some fateful duty that they know they must fulfil which is never explained!
Anyway, I will probably read it again cause I liked it when I started reading it, it just kind of tapered off for me into 'why is this happening? None of this makes sense.' Like I missed the decoder page or something.
