In this haunting work of journalistic investigation, Haruki Murakami tells the story of the horrific terrorist attack on Japanese soil that shook the entire world.

On a clear spring day in 1995, five members of a religious cult unleashed poison gas on the Tokyo subway system. In attempt to discover why, Haruki Murakmi talks to the people who lived through the catastrophe, and in so doing lays bare the Japanese psyche. As he discerns the fundamental issues that led to the attack, Murakami paints a clear vision of an event that could occur anytime, anywhere.

I always love Murakami's non-fiction books, for me, his non-fictions are as brilliant as his fictions. But this book a little bit different and left deep impact for me. This book is a compilation of Murakami's interview from victim of Tokyo subway sarin attack that happened in Japan on 1995. This book have two parts, the first about the victim and the second one about the organization involved on incident. This book tells much about Japanese culture as well. I recommend this book very much!
