The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a truly classic piece of fiction this is just as exciting the tenth time around as the first. I recently re-read what is possibly Murakami's best work and was still amazed by the journey you are taken on. This book is a must read if you are interested in any of the following: mysterious disappearances, alternate dimensions, horrifying WW2 flashbacks, life in suburban Tokyo, or looking at life through a different lens. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle guarantees to keep you on the edge of your seat and turning pages until you get through it.
Superimposes the collapse of a marriage over the investigation into recovered war memories and a man's search for his own identity
