Wicked Fairy Tale

I overlook this audiobook many times before because it's only an hour long. Since Audible had a 50% off sale, I thought to myself that I should give "The Strange Library" a try. I've been telling my book club that they should read more Haruki Murakami because his writing style is so different that you can't help for wanting more. Thus far, I've listened to all of Murakami's titles that Audible has to offer.

"The Strange Library" is another strange one from Haruki Murakami. A boy going to a library, talking to the Sheep Man and somehow being in prison for not reading enough.

What a great wicked fairy tale!

You better read more before the Sheep Man gets you. Simply brilliant bedtime story for your little ones to do their school work.

It was okay

I swear Ive seen a Macaulay Culkin movie with a similar plot, its way okay. I would buy the print version instead.
