About : (from Goodreads)

The story of a lonely boy, a mysterious girl, and a tormented sheep man plotting their escape from a nightmarish library.

My Thoughts:

It somewhat surprised me how short it was seriously an hour and two minutes! easy listening I'm really glad I got the audiobook version as it truly helped me a lot speed up my reading also multi task.

The story is quite pysche like,horror/nightmarish really haunting and scary if you ask me which reminds of the twilight zone. I don't think I could ever survive it haha

Spoiler Alert!

there you are just returning/borrowing a book then next thing you know BAM! you're trap and would eventually die or so they say pwahaha! 

I gave this book four out of five stars I really liked it and if you haven't read any Haruki Murakami I'd recommend this one to start as it's such a quick read or like If you're stuck in traffic somewhere hey why not give this a shot an hour long entertainment or if you're truly brave read it while you're in the library preferably when it's almost closing time ;)


  1. I haven't read this one by Murakami, but I am familiar with his work and his style of writing. In fact, I've recently reviewed Kafka on the Shore on my blog.

    1. I hope you find a copy of this one and read it soon it's really short! you'll finish it in no time :)

      I read Kafka some time ago it taught me a lot of things in life and the story's quite weird isn't?
