Publisher's Summary

In this propulsive novel, one of the most idiosyncratically brilliant writers at work in any language fuses science fiction, the hard-boiled thriller, and white-hot satire into a new element of the literary periodic table.

As he searches for a mysteriously vanished girlfriend, Haruki Murakami's protagonist plunges into a wind tunnel of sexual violence and metaphysical dread in which he collides with call girls, plays chaperone to a lovely teenaged psychic, and receives cryptic instructions from a shabby but oracular Sheep Man.

Dance Dance Dance is a tense, poignant, and often hilarious ride through the cultural Cuisinart that is contemporary Japan, a place where everything that is not up for sale is up for grabs.

Compelling!

This book is half science fiction and half mystery. I didn't think I would like it at first but I couldn't put it down -- or stop listening. It became spell-binding, more so because the reader was terrific with inflection and various character accents.

Don't let the rhythm of life die out, just dance.

Where does Dance Dance Dance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I've only started reading Murakami's works, so this makes the 2nd after Wild Sheep Chase.

What did you like best about this story?

The way it relates (at least for me) with the questions I asked about my life. Like the main character faces same feel of being displaced in the world. It really does launch the train of thought.
