Sputnik Sweetheart by Haruki Murakami
Sputnik Sweetheart

elle89, January 1, 2013

This was most definitely the best book I read in 2012. I agree with the previous comments that it shows a side of Murakami that one doesn't get to see in his longer books, like the Wind Up Bird Chronicle. Since it does lean toward the more realistic side of magic realism, the brief moments of magic feel all the more tangible and eerie. While reading the book, and even after I finished it, I spent my days in a foggy stupor as the lines between dream and reality blurred even in my own life. I would recommend Sputnik Sweetheart as a starting place for someone who wants to get into Murakami's work! And also as just a really really really great book in general.
