Wind Up Bird Chronicle

I have been obsessed with this book to the point where I had to hide it so that I could finish my school work and get enough sleep.  On Thursday night, I took the book out of hiding and made the decision that I would finish it this weekend.  The story is so complex and unexpected.  There is lots of intense dream language which I think impacted my dreams.  From reading the back cover, this is not a book that I would normally be inclined to read. One of my favorite things about the book is how it explores the complexity of our emotional connection to people.  There are lots of relationships that are tied together by unexplained elements.  Connections run deep and can be explained through dreams.  I am really going to miss the characters; while I was excited to see what happens at the end, I felt very sad to have the story finish.

Recommend to a friend: YES!

Challenge Status:  This book counts towards the Chunkster Challenge and the What is in a Name Challenge.
