Kafka on the Shore is the latest novel by Japan's leading literary novelist, who developed a world-wide cult reputation with Norwegian Wood. In Kafka on the Shore, Murakami continues with his remarkable combination of profound insight into humankind with a totally credible touch of the fantastical -- a unique tour de force. The teenager Kafka Tamura goes on the run and holes up in a strange library in a small country town. Concurrently, Nakata, a finder of lost cats, goes on a puzzling odyssey across Japan. Only gradually do we find how these stories interweave.

I really don’t get his writing. It seems like the story is going to merge and make sense but this one leaves me hanging. So much repetition as well. This is the third one of his books for me and it will be the last.
