I think I have ceased to make sense myself.
The lead character is the most complex mix of character that I have ever encountered.
I started Murakami with 1Q84 which was equally crazy yet clearer in the madness. Wind-Up Bird has so many characters with so many personalities or serious lack of personality that it was incredibly complex to understand and grasp their role in the lead character's life.
I think I am done with Murakami for a while.
