Add a girl whose ears are so exquisite that, when uncovered, they improve sex a thousand-fold, a runaway friend, a right-wing politico, an ovine-obsessed professor and a manic-depressive in a sheep outfit, implicate them in a hunt for a sheep, that may or may not be running the world, and the upshot is another singular masterpiece from Japan's finest novelist.Hide synopsis

This is a book which I really enjoyed. It is both whimsical and fantastical, while being set in the real world. Like most of Murakami's work, there are references to popular music, jazz, beautiful ears...
The protagonist is a thirtysomething, nice guy, who becomes embroiled in a chase for one extraordinary sheep. But knowing the sheep...really KNOWING the sheep, could prove to be dangerous.
An excellent read, however, it may make more sense to you if you are familiar with Murakami's quirky characters and settings.
