Journal Entry 1 by Ftarazu from Ovar, Aveiro Portugal on Tuesday, June 01, 2004
I already started reading this book and what I can say is that the main character goes through a reflexion and analysis of his life and life in general when several strange people (a young girl, a prostitute of the mind, a medium,...) starts popping out in his life whitout any logic whatsoever...
It's a funny book, althought a bit unrealistic

"In a Tokyo suburb a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife's missing cat. Soon he finds himself looking for his wife as well in a netherworld that lies beneath the placid surface of Tokyo. As these searches intersect, Okada encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists: a psychic prostitute; a malevolent yet mediagenic politician; a cheerfully morbid sixteen-year-old-girl; and an aging war veteran who has been permanently changed by the hideous things he witnessed during Japan's forgotten campaign in Manchuria"

My brother is currently reading this, but I just realised I haven't journalled this myself yet! What a marvellous book. It was my first Murakami, and I was hooked immediately. This is like nothing I've ever read. The style is fresh and the storylines are so wonderfully odd.... I love the way Murakami has weaved the historical plotline about the Japanese in Mongolia into this otherwise modern-day story. It's amazing how he managed to satisfy all my reading needs! Have subsequently read Kafka on the Shore - a great book, but the Wind-Up Bird one remains my favourite. On to other Murakamis!
