A must read/listen for any science fiction fan. 80s pop culture references aplenty. Cleary written by a fan of the genre who was able to build and create on the worlds that came before it.

Toru Okada is going through a difficult time. He is without a job, his cat has disappeared, and his wife is behaving strangely. Into this unbalanced world comes a variety of curious characters, a young girl sunbathing in a nearby garden; sisters who are very peculiar indeed; an old war veteran with a violent, disturbing story. Okada retreats to a deep well in a nearby house. And the story unfolds.

The book itself was okay but a but all over the place, however it was still interesting enough for me to finish it. I struggled most with one part of the performance. The character of the young girl was grating to listen to and I found myself skipping her chapters. The rest of the characters were performed well.
