"If you've never immersed yourself in the wonderful world of cult Japanese writer Haruki Murakami you're in for a treat...This novel's central story of a teenage runaway and an ageing man surrounded by bizarre dramas, is as compelling as its predecessors. Magnificent stuff." (Red Magazine)

"Murakami's tenth novel is as nutty, funny and silly as any of those that have come before it... Philip Gabriel's translation is carefully done and Murakami's prose is all the richer - and pleasantly weirder - for the translator's fidelity to it." (The Times)

"What a magnificently bewildering achievement Kafka on the Shore is. Brilliantly conceived, bold in its surreal scope, sexy, and driven by a snappy and often comical plot, Murakami's new work delves into the congested inner workings of our selves with characteristic brio." (The Independent)

"Kafka on the Shore is an ambitious and substantial new novel... The plot, wild as it is, doesn't waste any material, satisfyingly tightening the screw to the end. In short, this is a book which works in the most expert way." (The Spectator)

Reseña del editor:

Kafka on the Shore follows the fortunes of two remarkable characters. Kafka Tamura runs away from home at fifteen, under the shadow of his father's dark prophesy. The ageing Nakata, tracker of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his highly simplified life suddenly overturned. Their parallel odysseys - as mysterious to them as they are to the reader - are enriched throughout by vivid accomplices and mesmerising dramas.

Fish tumble in storms from the sky; cats carry on conversations with people; a ghostlike if familiar pimp deploys a Hegel-spouting girl of the night; a forest harbours soldiers apparently un-aged since WWII. There is a brutal murder, but the identity of both victim and killer is a riddle. Yet this, as all else, is eventually resolved, even as the entwined destinies of Kafka and Nakata are gradually unravelled.
