Murakami is strange. His plots are a bit hard to follow. But he has such a deep perception of humanity that it draws you in and keeps you there.

A man and his wife misplace their cat. She contacts a psychic medium to help them and speaking in riddles, never gets anywhere. Kumiko leaves her husband for her lover and he befriends a very strange 16 year girl obsessed with death and everyone is trying to find themselves.

In the end, the cat comes back.

Like I said, I couldn’t discern the plot. It was complicated, confusing, a bit boggling, a sense if messed up sexual fuckery, and I have no idea what was going on.

It’s a book that needs to be reread a few times I think. Murakami has such a way with underlying plots that it really comes off as beautiful.

Murakami is one of those writers that come once in a lifetime. I recommend him but be forewarned, he’s weird. XD
