Dance dance dance – haurki murakami. An even stranger than usual story from Murakami… The hero has strange dreams about a hotel he used to visit with a prostitute in another part of Japan and decides to go and try and find out what it means. What follows is a tale of random (and not so random) connection culminating in a slightly confusing ending. The ride along the way is good though this is not one of my favourite Murakami books. Oh, but it does have the interesting aside of a character who is an author called Haruki Murakami – this is apart from the hero who, as usual, is an intelligent loner who likes cooking and occaisionally bedding attractive woman but not falling in love.
