This was my first Haruki Murukami story that set off a Murukami Marathon that ended on my last book, Wild Sheep Chase, after ten others. I loved these marvelous unique mysteries and incredible characters and although I later decided that the Wind Up Bird Chronicals are my favorite, I have never gotten over my all time favorite character in this novel Aomame. I thought about her in between reads and felt a huge loss at the end of the story. I still like to think that I eat a little better and stretch a little more because of her and if I needed to I might use a long needle to defend myself.
The female character is whiney and sooo not funny, the vampire has a stereo-typical transilvanian accent and the whole story is about as interesting as a bucket of warm spit. move on to something, try patricia briggs, now that woman can write!
Really enjoyable, I didn't know what to expect but was very pleased. J.R. Ward is such a good writer.
I can't tell you how many times I rolled my eyes and groaned when the repetitive ramble began about how stoic these characters are.
I just couldn't get past the narrator, it was just so slow & mundane.
