This review is from: South Of The Border, West Of The Sun (Paperback)
This Murakami book often gets overlooked by customers in bookstores. You always read about how good Norwegian Wood is, but in my opinion, South of the Border is much better. It is by far his saddest story so far, and for his standards, it's a pretty normal story. There are no frogs falling from the sky, or no tales about disappearing cats or anything. It is a true love story. I don't want to go too deep into the story, because I don't want to give away too much. Just trust me. I've read all of his books, including parts 1 and 2 of 1Q84, and South of the border, west of the sun is an absolute must read. Even more than Norwegian Wood.
