The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: A Novel

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Haruki Murakami

Narrated By: Rupert Degas

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: September 2013

Duration: 26 hours 13 minutes


The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a tour de force—and one of Haruki Murakami’s most acclaimed and beloved novels.

In a Tokyo suburb, a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife’s missing cat—and then for his wife as well—in a netherworld beneath the city’s placid surface. As these searches intersect, he encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists. Gripping, prophetic, and suffused with comedy and menace, this is an astonishingly imaginative detective story, an account of a disintegrating marriage, and an excavation of the buried secrets from Japan’s forgotten campaign in Manchuria during World War II.

    I love this book. So much do I love this book that I suffered through a full day of the narrator. It's taken me years to be able to read this book again without hearing his voice narrating the female characters. It pretty bad. Word of advice for male narrators: just don't try to sound like a woman. It's never going to come off right.
