Hajime tells the story of his relationship with Shimamoto, an unconventional girl, from their first meetings as children through to life as students. They drift apart, but come together years later when Hajime is married and a father of two.
Are those former feelings of close friendship still real - real enough to upset a functioning family life? Or are they haunted by intense memories? And who is Shimamoto, and what has she become? South of the Border, West of the Sun is typically intimate, illusive, unpredictable and absorbing in a way that is uniquely Murakami.

A wonderful tale of love and yearning
Would you consider the audio edition of South of the Border, West of the Sun to be better than the print version?
Hard to say as I haven't read the book but the narrator was excellent
What did you like best about this story?
As usual with Murakami it is hard to tell what is real and what is imagined which is what makes his stories quite magical. Leaves a lot to the imagination.
Which scene did you most enjoy?
The meeting with his childhood love after 25 years
If you made a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
A love story without an ending
