Overview

Cerca ya de medianoche, en esas horas en que todo se vuelve dolorosamente nítido o angustiosamente desdibujado, Mari, sentada sola a la mesa de un bar-restaurante, se toma un café mientras lee. La interrumpe un joven músico, Takahashi, al que Mari ha visto una única vez, en una cita de su hermana Eri, modelo profesional. Esta, mientras tanto, duerme en su habitación, sumida en un sueño «demasiado perfecto, demasiado puro». Mari ha perdido el último tren de vuelta a casa y piensa pasarse la noche leyendo en el restaurante; Takahashi se va a ensayar con su grupo, pero promete regresar antes del alba. Mari sufre otra interrupción: la encargada de un «hotel por horas» pide que le ayude con una prostituta agredida por un cliente. Dan las doce. En la habitación donde Eri sigue sumida en una dulce inconsciencia, el televisor cobra vida y en la pantalla empieza a distinguirse una imagen turbadora... pese a que el televisor no está enchufado.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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.
