Maybe you should read: Kafka on the Shore.

Simply because it has everything. Sex, Greek tragedy, talking cats, hitch-hiking, surrealism, murder, Beethoven, ghosts, libraries, Johnnie Walker, and a 15 year-old protagonist called Kafka Tamura.

Sublimely plotted, and simply written. To call it a coming-of-age novel is to call The Little Prince a fairytale.

Came dangerously close to overtaking Sputnik Sweetheart as my favourite Murakami book.
