What a talent

He had the incredibly lyrical voice right from the beginning. This could only have come from a mix of the personal/autobiographical and his unique blend of the mystical/fantastical which continues throughout his many wonderful novels. Great narration!

Compelling, but not as good...

as his later work. It has elements of later masterpieces like Norwegian Wood, but it is still more a beginning effort.
