5.0 out of 5 stars Compulsively readable, 2 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I really enjoyed this. It was engaging, fast-paced and genuinely thrilling. I enjoyed the ride, and the explosive action, and I enjoyed the company of Sam, the main character - a very human character for this type of novel, with his various faults and his regrets of some of the choices he's made but also still just trying to get by as best he can as life throws ever more dangerous and life-threatening circumstances at him. Thought-provoking and highly readable.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cool as ever by Murakami, 3 Mar. 2002
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!
