    Toru Watanabe, approaching middle age, hears The Beatles song "Norwegian Wood" in an airplane and, with Proustian vividness, it transports him back to his student days in Japan with Naoko, Midori, and Storm Trooper.

    Tim says: "Wistful, magical, poetic, touching"
    "Wonderful book."
    Overall

    I saw the movie version last weekend and really liked it. Discussed it a lot with my regular cinema buddy. But I'm really glad I bought this audiobook. It's so much deeper. And what a great description of the late 60's in Japan.
    And the way the protagonist uses senses to evoke memories, just amazing!
    It's deeply felt, but not too sentimental.
    I know I'm gushing, but this book really touched me.
    Loved how each chapter had a musical interlude.
    Highly recommended.
