The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle

The Wind-Up Bird ChronicleThe Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Surreal at times but always intriguing this is a wonderful tale set in Japan. I might argue the many female characters are not portrayed as strongly as the male protagonist but feels more it reflects more the point of view the story is told from. A few footnotes for the non-Japanese would have improved my understanding of some of the intertwined stories, but even without it is a mesmerizing read.
