Toru Okada's cat has disappeared and this has unsettled his wife, who is herself growing more distant every day. Then there are the increasingly explicit telephone calls he has started receiving. As this compelling story unfolds, the tidy suburban realities of Okada's vague and blameless life, spent cooking, reading, listening to jazz and opera and drinking beer at the kitchen table, are turned inside out, and he embarks on a bizarre journey, guided (however obscurely) by a succession of characters, each with a tale to tell.Hide synopsis

As with most of Murakami?s work, the first two-thirds of his books are engaging. The ending doesn't strangle you with a conclusion, which leaves everything open for discussion (always the sign of a good book) Murakami creates characters with quirk, concepts that smack of the serial.
