    Murakami's a definitive genius!

    When I read the first few pages of this book, I was a bit confused but curious at the same time. The strange connection that each characters have with each other is one of the many things I love about Murakami's books. But unlike his other works, the story for this one is simple and yet reaches deep at the same time. I like the plotline 'what-happens-after-dark' and his creative imagination with creating a different world that took place between midnight and sunrise (almost like a light and darkness contrast).It is a definite page-turner, and had a strange but satisfying ending to it. Murakami's a definitive genius!

    Wonderful Novel

    This is deffinitely not for the light readers out there, but if you enjoy the art of novels then you'll love this. I had randomly picked up this book and was completely blown away by it. In a Mrs. Dalloway fashion, Murakami follows individual characters from sunset to sunrise. He blends the realistic and imaginitive worlds of these individuals to create a great novel. It is one of the best books I have ever read.

    Loved it

    This was one of my first Murakami book and i loved it. This book was easy to read, contained different emotions (happy, sad, suspese) and had many themes (such as social roles, family and friend relationships) just in one novel. Great book.

    Beautifully Written

    This was my first Murakami read, however I loved it. Although it was not a funny book, I sometimes found myself laughing at the bizzare conversations between characters.

    Slow and didn't hold my interest

    This book was a little slow and it seemed to jump around with alot of different characters. It was hard to keep my interest.

    Nice touch but a bit light

    A complex short story about many turn of events that intertwined in one of the lively nights in Tokyo. It focuses on the darker/moodier side of night time. The nighttime dweller are of different creatures: ordinary men turns in to devil. Interesting stories line takes you to the depth of the underworld. When Sun rises everything turns normal, that's what you hope, but not always.

    Great Read

    I read this book in two days, would have been one if I could read and drive. I loved the way it was written, the author has a great style. But the ending did not leave with a sense of closure, I felt there was more to the story and needed to know how it ended.
