Sputnik Sweetheart - Haruki Murakami I really wanted this to be a 4stars book, but it made me think of Coelho a lot and that is not really a good thing. There are parts in it that are quite good but most of the time it is just so un-interesting. The people feel flat and even though I guess that is part of the plot, it does not endear me towards any of them. I think the cat vanishing up the tree was the best part really.
