Sputnik Sweetheart

10 03 2012


I re-read this book this week on a grey and miserable “sick day” off in the middle of the week. I first read it years ago in Tokyo and remember being a bit disappointed. It is certainly not as dense as the same author’s “Wind Up Bird Chronicle” or “…End of the World ” but I really enjoyed it the second time around as a relatively light read. It was also interesting to see so many of the themes of Murakami’s last book, “IQ84” taking form. I even wondered if the character of Miu from “Sputnik” appeared in “IQ84” (as the nameless woman motorist who ‘rescues’ the main protagonist on a freeway).
