I was expecting Murakami, and I found Murakami. Not to say that his books are bad. They just don't have a grand plan that I could discover. That's a metaphor of life, eh?
I admit I haven't read much Japanese literature. The only thing that comes to mind is Snow Country by Yasunari Kawabata. It felt like it was a book about nothing while reading it; of course in retrospect it wasn't, the themes of the novel were hidden in the slice of life narrative.
