    Kafka on the Shore follows the fortunes of two remarkable characters. Kafka Tamura runs away from home at 15, under the shadow of his father's dark prophesy. The aging Nakata, tracker of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his pleasantly simplified life suddenly turned upside down.

    Story

    Ellen's relationship to Andy doesn't just seem perfect on the surface, it really is perfect. She loves his family, and everything about him, including that he brings out the best in her. That is, until Ellen unexpectedly runs into Leo. The one who got away. The one who brought out the worst in her. The one she can't forget. This is the story about why we choose to love the ones we love, and why we just can't forget the ones who aren't right for us.

    "Ultimately disappointing"
    Overall

    Quite interesting story but ultimately disappointing as the heroine opts for the virtuous but stultifying life which is sweetened by an unrealistic and unconvincing element of freedom
