I finished Kafka on the Shore yesterday… but it was not my favorite. It might be a matter of having expectations too high, but I was disappointed. There were certainly elements of the story that I absolutely loved: an old man who can speak with cats, a truck driver who becomes a reluctant disciple, a boy who finds a secret portal to another world deep in the woods. There were however, several parts of the story that I didn’t care for: some points of the story that did not have an apparent purpose, a few characters that I didn’t care for, but mostly the strange, confusing sexual encounters throughout the book.
I would suggest that you to read Haruki Murakami, just don’t start with this one.
I LOVE spending time with my wife and three kids. We work to play. We love the outdoors and being able to travel. Some of our favorite trips have been to Chicago, Boston, Italy, Germany, and the Netherlands.
