    1. Absolutely teeming with an abundance of fascinating topics discussed both in a universal and Japan specific context Great read for any Murakami fan, Japanophile, or anyone interested in the human condition as it is in the 21st century.Warning definitely not the best of translations I found at least 3 typos throughout the book Also, I felt some parts especially in the beginning were very awkwardly translated Then again, it might just be me not being worldly enough to understand what Murakami and [...]
