First Person Singular, by Haruki Murakami

challenging mysterious reflective medium-paced
  • Plot- or character-driven? A mix
  • Strong character development? It's complicated
  • Loveable characters? It's complicated
  • Diverse cast of characters? Yes
  • Flaws of characters a main focus? It's complicated


I love short stories, and these odd, perplexing, and outright strange stories make you think and take you on a wild and unexpected journey. I listened to this audiobook while feverish, and a fever dream is an accurate description of this book, where you aren't quite sure where reality begins, and a deliciously distrurbing delirium you just have to give into begins.
