The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle | Read Log

Recently my reading pace has significantly lowered, you'll know why later. Here is the talk on the most recent book I've finished, which is The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle by Haruki Murakami.
Toru Okada is going through a difficult time. He is without a job, his cat has disappeared, and his wife is behaving strangely. Into this unbalanced world comes a variety of curious characters, a young girl sunbathing in a nearby garden; sisters who are very peculiar indeed; an old war veteran with a violent, disturbing story. Okada retreats to a deep well in a nearby house. And the story unfolds.
