A book about loss, grief, mental health & flawed human beings. Suicide features heavily in this book so it's not a happy, fun book. I didn't love the ending but I did enjoy reading the book.
Another Murakami which puzzled me and yet kept me engrossed in a weird little tale of a man with an ear fetish and his girlfriend with a magical ear traversing the mountains in Japan to look for a sheep with a star on its back that may or may not be controlling the world & a friend named the Rat, on the bidding of a right-wing political giant‘s secretary. It was a strange ride alright, but the vibes were pretty good
