Kafka on the Shore follows the fortunes of two remarkable characters. Kafka Tamura runs away from home at 15, under the shadow of his father's dark prophesy. The aging Nakata, tracker of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his pleasantly simplified life suddenly turned upside down.

The story is beautiful and lucid. This is my first introduction to Murakami's kingdom. But the performance is way beyond the story. Overall it seemed like a movie, only difference being you see it with your mind's eye.
