I really enjoyed this read. It's the first of Murakami's books I've been able to read all the way through. I think I should have started with some of his shorter works instead of 1Q84. I found the story really interesting, with a mix of strange mixed in, which is common with his writing. It was well written and left me thinking after I put it down and craving to know more. I spent a lot of sleepless nights wanting to just read more. However, the end left me with more questions than those that were answered, but I found this really true to life itself. We don't always get the answers we crave and we also might never know them. This book makes me really want to go back and finish 1Q84 and get a chance to read his other books as well.
