75. Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami
Kafka is a teenage boy living in Japan who runs away from home to search for his long lost missing sister and mother as well as to avoid fulfilling an Oedipal prophecy that he would kill his father and sleep with his mother. Along the way he is picked up an old man named Nakata, who suffered some mystery affliction during World War II that now allows him to talk to cats among other things.
I really could not explain to you exactly what this novel is about. It mostly made no sense to me. Even talking about it at book club didn’t help me understand it anymore. I did not really care for it. I give it a 3 out of 10.
