I have just finished Kafka on the Shore for my book group - although i think I will be posting on it in a few weeks as I think I read the book club books out of orderm being rather disorganised! I do hope that you enjoye what you read - I did, although i have by no means "worked it out" - I think that it is the kind of book that one could read many times before making peace with its many riddles!

thanks indeed for sharing
