In a Tokyo suburb a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife's missing cat. Soon he finds himself looking for his wife as well in a netherworld that lies beneath the placid surface of Tokyo. As these searches intersect, Okada encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists: a psychic prostitute; a malevolent yet mediagenic politician; a cheerfully morbid sixteen-year-old-girl; and an aging war veteran who has been permanently changed by the hideous things he witnessed during Japan's forgotten campaign in Manchuria.

🔮Hidden Depths

I would say this book that made me more curious about other Murakami's books. Haven't read all of them, but currently this one is my favourite and I'm deeply into it.

It's a story about Toru Okada a man who quit his job without a reason and have a daily normal life as a "house husband". But later on he keeps on receiving strange phone calls, meet new peoples with their variety of characters and stories. Every character leds to a new story and a new question waiting to be answer as we go through the pages.

My favourite part and somehow I can relate is the well scenes. When life gets hard things get confusing somehow we just want to go some place quiet and escape a while from a routine just to think and calm down.

Don’t think about it too much, just do it. For a change of pace. It might help you figure out all kinds of things.

Is it possible, finally, for one human being to achieve perfect understanding of another?
We can invest enormous time and energy in serious efforts to know another person, but in the end, how close are we able to come to that person’s essence? We convince ourselves that we know the other person well, but do we really know anything important about anyone?
