It’s Haruki’s World
I had read this book in Japanese many years ago, and this audiobook has taken me to the same world which I experienced by the Japanese book. But, I think the narration emphasises the comical, strange side of the story, and that eventually highlighted the unique attribute of this author. I liked it.
