Don't listen to the critics

I am truly surprised critics find THIS MUCH to say about the book! Murakami's style is easy-to-read and hard-to-stop. The book is colorfull in events, characters' feelings and thoughts. It takes a breath away and you finish it in no time. Although the book leaves a 'heavy' feeling, because of characters' broken dreams, your world is fuller after you've read it. Highly recommended!

I lent a good friend of mine one of my favorite pieces of literature, who said she enjoyed and wanted to repay the favor. So she gave me this novel, said it was good and i started reading it the next day. So maybe that's why i had high hopes but...... this book really isn't that good at all. sure if you want to waste time and sit back and do nothing. Its not intellectually stimulating though it tries very hard to be, along with its feel, its simple, which okay i get it people like, but lets be realistic there is a difference between a good idea and a good book. Sorry but this book was disappointing to say the least. Oh and it tires pathetically hard to be sympathetic but if it was really as simply written as every says, there would be no confusion. By the end no problems are resolved really, and i don't care to know what happens.
