My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Murakami does a great job of bringing you into the story. He seems to really go in to the background of the character and their motivations for what they are doing. I liked how each chapter focused around a character and how their stories would periodically get closer to each other until the end when they are finally together. I really liked this story overall and found it quite easy to believe in this world. I definitely started looking at the moon more closely while I was reading the story.
