I finished reading it a couple of months ago. Really, really enjoyed it. It was sharp, witty, amusing, thoughtful, and I enjoyed the journey. Also has a hilariously evocative (and accurate) scene where he describes the kinds of people who run along the Charles River in Boston.

I also read it as an audiobook, which I don't do too often but I had a decent-length commute this summer, so it worked out. Would say I still prefer reading print, but it was convenient!

In terms of other Murakami, I've only read 1Q84 and I can't really say that I quite understood it. Suggestions for what Murakami to try next? The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle?

I can recommend The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle pretty easily, it skews closer to What I Talk About When I Talk About Running in terms of coherence. If you were interested in it based on my last comment, I'd say give it a go!
