My copy of the book is still stuck on the slow boat. *sigh*
Damn slow boat!!! :)Thanks so much for the link, I hadn't heard of this. I'm a recent convert to Murakami's work and this sounds like a very interesting book.
I don't know if I want to read this yet!I love Murakami and I love reading, but despite the good reviews, I just don't know. I probably will in a few months...
Carl - Yeah. :( But then I'm getting it free, so maybe I shouldn't complain. I get the idea it's a more personal book than his fiction though. So, maybe better to approach it with less expectation.Kelsey - The reviews are lukewarm, so if you don't think you're going to love it, might be better to wait for a library copy.
That makes sense. I like the idea of reading it a bit at a time (I think that is what one Amazon reviewer suggested).
