Murakami's 12th work of fiction is darkly entertaining and more novella than novel. I really enjoy Murakami’s writing style. Mari’s story was interesting because she met several people and that allowed the author to show many layers of that character. That’s why at the end of the book (only one night after the story began) the reader can feel that she has grown and developed. Eri’s story, however, was certainly confusing and the author never really gives us satisfying explanations about what happened to her.
