    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"
    "The first novel I found something beyond."
    Overall

    Through this novel written by Haruki Murakami, I found myself liking reading novels in 15 years ago. Also this novel is the first audio book I bought 5 years ago and have enjoyed it since then.

    The narrator's voice and reading habit is especially great for me to hear the novel through. 'So great' is what I wanna say about this novel, this author, and this narrator.

    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.

    "It's great to hear it."
    Overall

    I'm fond of the author and his novels.
    So I already know the all parts of this novels here and there.
    And the narrators' voices and reading skills are quite great.

    For me as a foreigner using English as a second language, the narrators's voice tone is very helpful to hear the whole story without feeling boring.

    Thank to Sean Barrett , Oliver Le Sueur.
    Their voice and command of English sounds a bit like an European.
    That factor is also quite intriguing to me.
