The Wind-up Bird Chronicle

The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is the last book I have read. And again, it is Haruki Murakami's. The book is around 900 pages and it is divided in 3 parts.

I must say I have really enjoyed this book. Actually, I have read it in around 5 days. This novel is composed of many stories around the main character, Tooru Okada, and there are always links among the stories. The book is full of fantasy and there are many examples of strange dreaming phenomena: false awakening, reality and dreams mixing up, lucid dreams...

It reminded me a bit about "Kafka on the Shore" in the sense that both are strongly dependent on fantasy and strange situations. Of course, both books are highly recommendable!!
