Kafka on the shore, Haruki Murakami

Kafka Tamura, 15, flees Tokyo to escape the curse her father has pronounced against him. One night, Kafka wakes up in the middle of a wood covered with blood. Panicked, he takes refuge in a library where Oshima takes him under his protection.

In Tokyo, Nakata, an old man whom a mysterious coma has made simple, also decides to take the road.

Their itineraries will converge. Kafka is far from suspecting that by trying to flee his fate, he rushes to meet him.

A very beautiful story, haunting and deep, where unfolds an overflowing imagination. The reader is drawn into an initiatory novel where fantasy and surrealism mix. A real joy.
