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 Murakami...fun, 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.

This is my first book by this author and I enjoyed it very much. I wasn't exactly sure where it was going, but I enjoyed the trip. Read full review

More of an absurd whodunnit than the classic directionless, relationship-obsessed Murakami formula I've usually encountered. Reminds me a lot of Bukowski's Pulp. Read full review

Haruki Murakami never disappoints. This book begins as an engaging tale of mystery and adventure and turns to a metaphor about our roles and our value I our world. Laced with history and intrigue this book will keep you thinking. Read full review
