    Haruki Murakami is cool because he writes stories where crazy things happen, although the bad part about Murakami is that his stories aren’t good. Like I’d prefer to just read fragments of him describing amazing and surreal events without having to also drudge through the story lines of his books. So yeah, this book is cool and times, but mostly boring, too long, and really doesn’t have a finish worth reading.

    I flew through Kafka on the Shore in less than a week, pulled along by dreamy imagery and poetic language. It’s very character driven, and most of the characters have depth and interesting background stories; however, this story lacks substance toward the end, and I thought it just kinda ran out of steam. It’s beautiful, but hollow. It’s entertaining for a quick read though–definitely beats scrolling on yer phone screen. 😉
