My thoughts:

2.5 out of 5 stars

While reading the story....It's painstakingly long! It dragsss...I don't really see the point of it all especially in the beginning this story makes me want to go to sleep. It's normal and a bit weird so many things I'd like to quote ugh I don't like how the girls voices sounds so annoying! there you go audio book thanks haha! Good way to past time though I wonder how this story will unfold.I like Haruki's descriptive writing style but thy greatness I dunno hmm...

The end of book 2 reminds me of that scene in hannibal with the wealthy guy.

Got a bit confused whether nutmeg's a guy or girl.

I feel like the other stories within this story are such fillers -_-


Mae kasahara's story bout the duck people and rice pudding was so funny and interesting indeed.

I finally get it in the end it makes sense now haha!

Additional thoughts from the future (Oct. 2015) : So I read this book last September and I really didn't thought much about it as I try to enjoy the story as much as I can. I feel like this book is truly very Haruki you know normal days with a twist of weird paranormal twist story within a story some things/people aren't what they seem as you thought they would be kinda thing. I'd like to give it a higher rating him being Haruki and all but I just feel like it's okay I liked a lot of quotes from this book though haha!
