A Wild Sheep Chase

Another Murakami! I've now read three Murakami's: Hardboiled Wonderland, Norwegian Wood, and A Wild Sheep Chase. I love them all, but think Hardboiled Wonderland remains my favorite, followed by the Sheep Chase, and finally, lovingly, by Norwegian Wood.

I'm not sure what to say about A Wild Sheep Chase.
There's a distinct same-ness to Murakami's characters and tones, and it's a wonderful sameness, and Sheep Chase has it.

Keeping to broad strokes,
there's plot, there's some action, there's lots of humor, there's mysticism (i think), and there's um, Magic, and of course Strangeness.

Highly recommended.

See what i thought of Norwegian Wood here.


  • i had a very murakami experience this weekend. Wind-Up Bird Chronicles all over the place.

    shameless plug: check out either of my blogs for a taste of it.
