I gave up after 200-300 pages. Its not bad, just A Lot of Murakami indulgence.. which I wasnt ready for. I may pick it up later when im in the mood to delve into a sprawling long story.
If your new to him you need to read Hard Boiled Wonderland its his best novel.. its under 500 pages and is really imaginative so it hooks you.
