After reading a few short stories, I'm not finding them interesting and have moved on to other books. Maybe I should try one of his regular books sometime.

This is a very unusual book. I can't say It was one of the best books I read but once I started a short story I couldn't put it down.

If you get a chance to read this, don't. I listened to the audio version of the book and had to force myself to finish it because it was a selection of my book club. I kept hoping there might be some thread cleverly connecting the stories, but except for the character of Noboru Watanabe, who showed up in different guises in a few stories, that thread never materialized. Many of the stories seemed like so much navel-gazing, letting us in on the private thoughts of unremarkable people. While I, too, might have thoughts such as "Do bugs get cold?" I hardly consider them the stuff of literature. It's not that the quality of the writing itself was bad. Rather, the stories were boring and pointless.
