Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

A mesmerising mystery story about friendship from the internationally best-selling author of Norwegian Wood and 1Q84.

Tsukuru Tazaki had four best friends at school. By chance all of their names contained a colour. The two boys were called Akamatsu, meaning 'red pine', and Oumi, 'blue sea', while the girls' names were Shirane, 'white root', and Kurono, 'black field'. Tazaki was the only last name with no colour in it.

One day Tsukuru Tazaki's friends announced that they didn't want to see him, or talk to him, ever again.

Since that day Tsukuru has been floating through life, unable to form intimate connections with anyone. But then he meets Sara, who tells him that the time has come to find out what happened all those years ago.

Interesting, but less then his other novels

The Performance was good but why the accent?? Totally unnecessary. Overall - a good book. I loved the plot.

Pointless meandering waffle

I wouldn’t recommend this book to anyone. Pointless story, doesn’t get anywhere. Went into waffle overload in the last chapter. Silly story.

Fake Japanese accent UNBEARABLE

The reader is good, but why oh why is all the dialogue spoken in that awful “Japanese” accent?? Really yanks the listener out of the story. A ridiculous decision - producers, please don’t ever do anything like this again, it’s mortifying. I’m persisting because I can’t find another recording of this novel, but gosh, what a misstep. I feel sorry for the voice actor.
