Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the shore ...

I had been given this book in its French version sometime in 2014 but only got around to reading it at the begining of the New Year. I wish I had read it earlier as I very much enjoyed being enfolded in such a rather unique world, where cats had a voice, spirits slipped out of their bodies and mixed with the living in a no less unique way ..., just to mention a few "unconventional" issues displayed in the book but what I was most impressed with was Murakami's way of  "throwing in" certain "concepts" which have given me food for thought.  


"While anyone can tell a story that resembles a dream, it's the rare artist, like this one, who can make us feel we are dreaming it ourselves."
"Part bildungsroman, part metaphysical thriller, part meditation on the elusive nature of time Kafka on the shore displays all the talents that have made Haruki Murakami one of the most loved novelists in the world today."
