i dropped this one off this week as a return. personally, i think his short stories don't truly represent the complexities of his amazing novels. you only get a hint of what he's capable of writing and if you are new to Murakami starting with a short story collection may not do the job of hooking. i still enjoy them though.
this book won a Pulitzer Prize and was recommended to me by one of my favorite book friends. so far so good. a slow start, or perhaps a busy mind getting into it. i think soon i will venture on down to the good old library and slip a note inside. i bought this one so there's no need to borrow it.
