Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost 20 years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire - to a time when an impetuous young woman called Midori marches into his life and he has to choose between the future and the past.

Nostalgia

Autobiographical and full of memories of growing up. The depth and ease of his narration are amazing.

An odd love story

I enjoy murakami books and I waited a while for this one to be narrated. Unfortunately I wasn't a major fan of the narration but it didn't distract from the story once I got used to it. The story is as weird as ever, but interesting! I was intently waiting to see what happens next so that's a good sign. I'd recommend it to anyone looking for an off kilter love story
