After Dark by Haruki Murakami, 1.5/5 Stars
Entertained Me: Low, Made Me Think: Low
My politically correct review of this book would require one word, "Huh?" My not so politically correct review would be three words, "What the fuck?" As much as I enjoy Murakami's writing style, I simply could not connect with the content of this book. I really don't have anything else to say. But, I've already gone straight to the library and grabbed Kafka on the Shore... let's see what Murakami can give me in that one!
