I enjoy mind twisting and mind bending elements in a novel but I need some sort of anchor to base these things on Murakami introduces Sakigake dohta maza and the Little People yet he only explores the periphery of these concepts especially the Little People Murakami please tell me who they are and what the deal is with them Like seriously I really want to know So then the uestion is what did he use the 900 pages for? Honestly your guess is as good as mine because after this slugfest I remain completely and utterly bewildered Things also happen in this novel just because There is no explanation and very vague character development Upon completion I just felt I was left with nothing NothingI've heard positive things about some of his other works but after this experience I cannot say when next I will be picking up another Murakami to read It shall surely be awhile yet if ever ETA on 24 January 2014 135AM Central European Time CET1 By some miracle this review has garnered a boatload of likes Thank you good people 2 However I must say I am tired of random people flocking over to the comment section to loudly voice their disagreement uestion my reading choices uestion why I finished the book and just generally be condescending This is my review space I read the book didn't like it and expressed it all in a review If you disagree and you loved it that's absolutely fine Use your own review space to worship it Don't come to mine and be a nuisance 3 Goodreads please introduce the option to lock the comment section of specific reviews for the love of God ETA on 10 February 2014 1230AM Central European Time CET1 On January 31 2014 Goodreads honored my reuest and locked this review2 I am grateful that Goodreads honored my reuest and even though I am aware of the setting that blocks non friends from commenting on my reviews that still seems to me to be an extreme option I'm not averse to non friends commenting on my reviews I would just like the option to lock certain reviews to prevent them from descending into an unnecessary bitch fest from non friends like this one did prior to the lock

Ed women; a hideously ugly private investigator; a mild mannered yet ruthlessly efficient bodyguard; and a peculiarly insistent television fee collectorA love story a mystery a fantasy a novel of self discovery a dystopia to rival George Orwell’s 184 is Haruki Murakami’s most ambitious undertaking yet an instant best seller in his native Japan and a tremendous feat of imagination from one of our most revered contemporary writer I'd heard it was a difficult read and certainly it is long at well over 900 pages but I find that I'm flying through it Murakami knows how to keep the pages turning with a brilliant mix of mystery fantasy and intrigue Two characters Aomame and Tengu find themselves slipping into an alternate version of the world in 1984 a world Aomame names 184 What is causing this shift and whom can they trust?
