This was my first Murakami novel. I enjoyed it, but felt it came up just short. The best part of this work are the fantasy aspects and Murakami's loose grip on what's real and what's fantasy. I really wish he had developed those further. All in all, an enjoyable read. I will continue to pick up Murakami in the future whenever I come across him.

This Murakami book has layers of magical realism, his hallmark, though in this case I was less enchanted than usual. The story seemed to end before the essential themes were fully explored and the reader's biggest questions answered. I recognize the value of leaving a bit of mystery at the end, but in this case I felt as though a chapter (or three!) were missing. Not a bad read, especially for one who feels nostalgic for their college years, but a slight letdown at the conclusion.
