    THIS NOVEL SHORT AND SWEET

    Although not much in length I would say this story still packs a punch and is worth paying for. I have never been to Japan or Greece for that matter and yet could still vividly see the characters there while I read about them. It involves a certain humor and mystery with existential romance that somehow feels genuine right from the start. Not easy to find a story like this one here unless you already know Murakami.

    Great

    Sputnik Sweetheart is the first book I have read by Murakami. I thought it was a great book. It was very easy to read and it was very relaxing. The writing style is very unique and I thought it was refreshing. The story of the novel is also very unique. I would recommend this book to most people. It is something different and touching. I can't wait to read more Murakami!

    Predictable, still fascinating...

    When Miu was up there staring at her own apartment, it was so predictable that she would see herself in it. This is the classic Murakami style. I've never loved one's writing like I do for Murakami. I would completely drown myself into his unreal world, and just imagine standing beside all those characters, feeling their emotions, sadness and loneliness. But if you consider yourself a happy person, you probably won't be touched by him.

    Murakami at his best

    I wanted to grab a book off the shelf at Londaon Gatwick airport to get me back to the states in one sitting and this fine novel did the trick. Easy to read and very engrossing in its plot and narrative, Sputnik Sweetheart grabbed me from the first paragraph. I truly enjoy this author. After reading more difficult literary novels with deep themes, it is always refreshing to read something that has simpler language and construction while at the same time conveying the most important of ideas. This is a must read for those interested in themes about love and its aftermath.

    bizzarre, but since when is that bad?

    I managed to read the book in two sittings - it was extremely involving. It starts off fairly light, and you don't realize how wrapped up you are until you look at the clock. It is extremely strange once Sumire disappears, but that only added to its quality.
