I'm a huge fan of Murakami, so you're not going to get anything but praise from me. The simplicity of his character's voices reverberate. They are everyman and what I imagine everyman to be when I consider our needs and wants.
This book deals with the love of the one person that spans decades and remains eternal. It deals with the concept of a soul mate, the hunger one has for another person and the vulnerabilities that assail us all if we allow them to. I always feel that I walk in step with his characters, whether male or female amd care absolutely about their journey. Murakami seems to have no comparable writers, in my experience, able to carry this simplicity of style and description of the everyday, so remarkably well. Every page is a joy, and I hope you find this joy too.
