Critic reviews

"Marvelous....These stories are a joy for [Murakami's] readers....Their beauty lies in their ephemeral and incantatory qualities and in his uncanny ability to tap into a sort of collective unconscious." ( Publishers Weekly)

Not very interesting

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

I only listened to 5 mins and was already bored. I suspect it will be popular amongst many who enjoy this genre but not my cup of tea
