Since this book is written in Filipino, I'll write this book review in Filipino.

Natuklasan ko ang aklat na ito sa isang advertisement ng lokal na Book shop at pati na rin sa anunsyo ng mga lokal na Book Groups sa Facebook. Kakatwa yung book cover kaya't bumili ako ng kopya sa malapit na suking-bookstore (198.00 php. sa National Bookstore as of Oct. 23, 2016 ; hindi ko sigurado kung naka-diskwento ako dahil Discount Sale noong araw na iyon. 229.75 ang retail price nito na nakalagay sa likod ng libro).

Sa tingin ko, sulit ang presyo niya dahil makapal-kapal yung libro. Hindi tulad ng ibang lokal na limbag na ang halaga ay katumbas na ng mga imported books tapos ang nipis-nipis pa.

Published date (English):
Originally published by Kodansha in 1992
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf
ISBN: 0375402519
Genre: Japanese Literature, Contemporary, Romance, Horror







This is the 4th Haruki Murakami book I've read. As expected, It has his style and ingredients in writing but I think this one's not his best.

"The sad truth is that certain types of things can't go backward. Once they start going forward, no matter what you do, they can't go back the way they were. If even one little thing goes awry, then that's how it will stay forever."

Shimamoto (pg. 147)
