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

VLeigh, October 14, 2013

This is one of those books where you can't discuss it with anyone unless they have read this book. What is this book about? No idea. I love it though. Anytime I pick up a book by Murakami, I know that I am in for a splendid visual experience. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a story surrounding a man who finds his life suddenly in upheaval. He leaves his job and then his wife disappears without warning. Some would blame the cat, but I blame the magic. Those forces that push and pull in a Murakami story without reason. This book takes you into WWII Japan and then into a pit and then back into looking for a cat. Seriously, I have no idea what to say about this book other than reading it will consume every part of you for weeks after the final page.
