A Wild Sheep Chase

A Wild Sheep Chase Summary

A New York Times bestselling author—and “a mythmaker for the millennium, a wiseacre wiseman” (New York Times Book Review)—delivers a surreal and elaborate quest that takes readers from Tokyo to the remote mountains of northern Japan, where the unnamed protagonist has a surprising confrontation with his demons.
 
An advertising executive receives a postcard from a friend and casually appropriates the image for an advertisement. What he doesn’t realize is that included in the scene is a mutant sheep with a star on its back, and in using this photo he has unwittingly captured the attention of a man who offers a menacing ultimatum: find the sheep or face dire consequences.

Overhyped1 star

Extremely boring. Flat and insanely uninteresting characters… the dynamic between the main character and his ex was somewhat intriguing, but the introduction of who the sheep man really was so such a slog, and everything following felt nonsensical with an extremely underwhelming “pay-off.”15

I'm a huge fan of Murakami's and have read many of his novels and short stories in no particular order. It was just by chance that I chose this one. Lots of fun. One of his best. After reading it, my daughter told me to read "Dance, Dance,Dance" which is the companion "sequel". What a great pair of books.55
