Kafka on the shore

by Haruki Murakami

Weird and wonderful! There are some great characters - especially the truck driver Hoshino; a wonderful library - life-enhancing and a sanctuary from the world; a gripping narrative which keeps you glued from beginning to end; and some weird goings-on including a man who talks to cats and then there is our hero Kafka who is trying to escape the prophecy that he will murder his father and sleep with his mother. I can't give away the ending - I'm not sure what it is.
