Book quality is very good. Cover is not hard, however not very thin.

Great book. It's gripping and I was finished before I even started.

...Its a brilliant book. You get the picture from the other reviews here, all I can add is that it was real, surreal, touching, effecting, lasting. What an incredible range of mind - not just an ability to come-up with crazy plots but the eye for detail and ability to paint connected nuance that means the daft plot not just hangs together; it sings. Its a Japanese lullaby of grace and beauty.
Wonderful. My only regret is that I let a year pass before I read it.

This was the first of the Murakami books that I read, a gift from a friend. In simple language a mood of amused dread is evoked and maintained throughout, like walking through a wildly distorted and mildly threatening landscape. While not as substantial as, say, Wind Up Bird nor as poignant as South of the Border it is a marvelous romp and worthy of reading on its own merit.

The writing is exquisite. At first I didn't think that there was any actual story, but it creeps up on you and then takes a strong hold. I find remarkable similarities, in both style and plot, between this book and Charles Bukowski's Pulp. Both are wonderful.
