En el primer volumen, dejamos al protagonista deseoso de saber qué se oculta detrás del cuadro titulado La muerte del comendador. También ha aprendido a convivir con los extraños personajes y objetos que lo envuelven desde que se instaló en la casa en las montañas. Y, a petición de su vecino, ha empezado a esbozar el retrato de una peculiar adolescente, Marie Akikawa. Pero cuando ésta, una tarde en que regresaba del colegio, desaparece misteriosamente, el protagonista se lanzará en su busca. Y para encontrarla no dudará en enfrentarse a lo desconocido, y tampoco a los terribles dilemas a los que su aventura va a conducirle. ¿Qué le ocurrió en el pasado al autor del cuadro La muerte del
comendador? ¿Quién es el hombre sin rostro?... En este segundo libro, de ritmo acelerado y lleno de suspense, las incógnitas sembradas en el anterior volumen van desvelándose, y encajan en el lugar que deben ocupar, como en un puzzle, para que el lienzo entero cobre pleno sentido.

    Another Murakami novel ended. Though, in the end of the second book -it says "The end of the second book" and not "The end". Maybe it comes a third one. We still didn't get all the answers.Because, is...

    Things finally started moving forward in the second book. I like the contemplative scenes as much as anyone else, but I'll admit I prefer when things get surreal, or thrilling. Especially in a >1000 p...

    I'm still not sure how I feel about this book.. If wasn't as great as I hoped it would be. I liked both 1q84 and Kafka on the shore a lot more. They made more sense to me and had more meaning for me.....

    Finally finished reading the whole story. It was really dreadful. To be honest, this is the first time ever that I want to give up at the mid point and not starting the second book. It is quite a disa...
