I really enjoyed Kafka on the shore, although there were a couple of bits I wasn't keen on. But overall I really enjoyed it.
Loved the character Mr Nakata.

Now reading. The Host by Stephenie Meyer. I have found it a bit hard to get into at first, but now I'm 80 pages in and am beginning to enjoy it.

OK it's time I faced up to it. I'm just not enjoying The Host right now. I have tried to, but I just don't feel myself there. So have put it down for now and have started to read Contact by Carl Sagan, which so far seems really good.

I gave up on Contact as I was struggling with it. I had to face up to it and put it away. I felt so guilty though. Love the movie but I just couldn't get into the book.
