Although Haruki Murakami is my all-time favorite author, it takes me a long time to finally finish this book. It is not because I decide to give up or the story is kind a boring one. But by reading this slowly makes me more involve to the story--I can't explain why, because I don't know the answer.
It's still typical Murakami writing, but I still love it. It's thrilling, sweet, gloomy, and every feelings I can't even describe. 1300+ pages maybe too much for some readers, but I can enjoy every pages of it. Reading this book or every Murakami's books) brings to another world that don't exist in the real one--and I don't mind it even it's an absurd one.
