Loved the story, loved more the narration
Japanese culture as the background, a character who can talk to cats, a world inside dreams. This was my first Murukami book and I must say that I used to look forward to my daily commute so that I can get to know what is going to happen next in the story. Narration is top notch, you can almost imagine how the character's personality by listening to the voice of the narrator. That is almost a new dimension to the story telling.
This book made me loyal customer to the Audible as I kept switching back to podcasts or music during my everyday commute earlier
