It was a neat collection of very Murakami-like stories. Most of them have some kind of indirect connections to each other, like cats, or daiquiris, or a narrator working at PR department of a household electronics firm, or a man named Noboru Watanabe, or strange dreams that warp the reality, or uneatable spaghetti. Maybe because of that I had a hard time differentiating separate stories. The few that really stood out for me were The Second Bakery Attack, Sleep, and The Dancing Dwarf. I loved the quirkiness of the first one, strange contemplative nature of the second, and the dark fairytale feel of the third. Also, On Seeing the 100% Perfect Girl One Beautiful April Morning is incredibly beautiful and sad for being so short. These are probably the four I would recommend the most.
