You can definitely tell this is early Murakami, but it was still great. I'm sitting here with postpartum book depression, wondering what I'm going to do when I run out of Murakami books to read. Read full review

It is a fairly interesting book. What I find odd though is that the book starts very slow, then around the middle is a very medium pace, then I feel like the ending was very quick. Almost like Murakami was bored and just wanted to finish up the book. But if you get through all the slowness of the beginning it gets better. It has a fun mystery to it that keeps you guessing so that kept me hooked. I think it's worth a read.

This is my favorite (or maybe 2nd favorite, after Kafka on the Shore) Murakami novel.
It is a surreal search for a special sheep that is the lord of the underworld.
It is vintage, thought provoking, strange, and wonderful all at the same time, no one does a better job of sending you through the looking glass and making you think this totally bizarre altnerate world probably does exist right alongside our own.
