I was a little bit disappointed with the ending too. The other thing that bothered me was the frequency of sexual sections. Not to say that I mind sexual content, and I see how some of it was important to the story, but it seemed so over-the-top and occurred so often that at times I felt like I was reading an erotic novel.
That being said, it was my first Murakami read and I really enjoyed it. If you've read other Murakami, any thoughts on where I should go from here?
