Cool as ever by Murakami,
This review is from: Dance Dance Dance (Harvill Panther) (Paperback)
In a similar vein to most of Murakami's novels; Dance Dance Dance is surreal, poetic and very readable. In contrast to some of his later novels, in which Murakami doesn't 'close out the story' so well, this book is more complete. It's still sassy, and still interspersed with Murakami's excellent asides and comments on modern society. It's also a continuation of a theme - The Sheep Man reappears, and the theme of 'inter-connection' on an alternative plane that forms such a major part of the Wind-up Bird Chronicle is encountered here also, as is the interesting, 'wise beyond her years', teenage girl.
As with every Murakami novel I've read, it is impossible to put down, thought-provoking, and a genuine escape. It also continues to motivate me to visit even more places in Japan than I already now wish to!
