In this propulsive novel, one of the most idiosyncratically brilliant writers at work in any language fuses science fiction, the hard-boiled thriller, and white-hot satire into a new element of the literary periodic table.

As he searches for a mysteriously vanished girlfriend, Haruki Murakami's protagonist plunges into a wind tunnel of sexual violence and metaphysical dread in which he collides with call girls; plays chaperone to a lovely teenaged psychic; and receives cryptic instructions from a shabby but oracular Sheep Man. Dance Dance Dance is a tense, poignant, and often hilarious ride through the cultural Cuisinart that is contemporary Japan, a place where everything that is not up for sale is up for grabs.

Book 4 but worked as a standalone
November 11th, 2014
Apparently this is book 4 in the Rat Series. I didn't know this when I read it. I think it worked as a standalone, but then again I don't know what I'm missing. I enjoyed it, but his "Norwegian Wood" is still my favourite.

I’m a Murakami fan and have read most of his books. This one was special for me because it wrapped up neatly, reminiscent of “Norweigan Wood.” That feeling of completion is rare with his novels, which makes me question translation and page limits for editions.
