From the back cover:

"The midnight hour approaches in an almost empty all-night diner. Mari sips her coffee and glances up from a book as a young man, a musician, intrudes on her solitude. Both have missed the last train home.

Later, Mari is interrupted again by a girl from the Alphaville Hotel; a Chinese prostitute has been hurt by a client, and she needs Mari's help.

Meanwhile Mari's beautiful sister Eri sleeps a deep, heavy sleep that is 'too perfect, too pure' to be normal; she has lain asleep for two months. But tonight as the digital clock displays 00:00, a hint of life flickers across the TV screen, though the television's plug has been pulled out.

Strange nocturnal happenings, or a trick of the night? "

I really liked Murakami's surreal world again! This was easier story to follow than some other texts by Murakami, but the story was really captivating and the characters were interesting. I simply couldn't put the book down...

I have a special plan for this book, it will take a long flight soon :)

It arrived so fast - thank you so much for tagging me with this book!!

ETA: another compelling work from murakami with intertwining plot lines. I really enjoyed the clock graphics that accompanied each chapter - it perfectly set the scene and helped create the mood without feeling like a crime procedural or a thriller.

Journal Entry 6 by Dancesports at Petcheys Bay, Tasmania Australia on Tuesday, January 31, 2012
Thank you for sending me this book from the Asian first page VBB, I have read one or two others by Murakami and I am looking forward to reading this one, I have two on the go at the moment but I am near the end with both. Back to work tomorrow after a long holiday break - all of January, but I still hope to be able to start this one by the weekend. Thank you for the chocolate coins too. It would be great if I could one day come to a meet-up at the Joshua Tree, now I have another spot of my 'bucket' list.

Nb another book arrived today from Sweden posted on the same day as this one.

Well, it took me longer than I hoped to get to this book, but it was well worth the wait. I really enjoyed the way the story unfolded, I also liked the surreal nature of the book, the way the author slowly revealed more about each of the characters. It left me wanting more.

The book will be moving on soon.

Journal Entry 9 by wingHaugtussawing at Stavanger, Rogaland fylke Norway on Monday, May 20, 2013
I read this book in virually one sitting - I just had to sleep in between...
I love Murakami's work, and this one was interesting and (as previously stated) easy to read.
I liked the characters, particularly the women working at Alphavile. Mari also came to life in my imagination - and to add something which had nothing to do with the book, my daugther's friend Mari stayed slept over whilst I read the book.
I don't really know what to do with the book, I'll probably bring it to the meet-up we have on Friday, but it will not be wild released if no one wants the book. Time will show.
