This is a long listen, and half an hour in, I wanted to quit. But I'm glad I kept with it. It was my first Murakami novel and I became immersed in the world. There is a lot more sex discussion in it than I expected, by the way. Ending was a little bit weak. But it was a great ride.

Amazingly well crafted story

Stick with this one. At about halfway through, I started to feel it was getting slightly dull. Little did I know how the second half would twist and turn! So well crafted. The last sentences will slay you. Definitely read!

This is a spell-binding book of great beauty and humanity. Definitely either read it or listen to it. I wasn't as in love with the epilogue as with the rest of the book, but so be it. I found the narrator's voice grating at first, but I grew to like it. Perhaps I was just wrapped up in the story. This is a story to make you fall in love with books all over again.

So long ago but it sounds so fresh and modern! A time of radical change. Diane Keaton reads BEAUTIFULLY.

This is a gripping listen/read. Naomi Alderman, co-creator and head writer of Zombies, Run!, has written a speculative fiction page-turner about an alternative reality in which women have developed the power to emit electric shocks from their hands. All of a sudden, women are the physically dominant sex, and this changes everything. At first, my reaction was "Go girls!" - but there are dark twists galore. Highly recommended.

Fascinating story, beautifully narrated. Pride and Prejudice meets the industrial revolution. Gripping, gritty and romantic.
