this is one of my all time favorite books! but please, just read the english version instead of indonesian one if possible. I haven't read the later version but I doubt that it'll be as cool & hilarious as the english one! I can say that it's Ryu Murakami's best book. to be honest, I can't enjoy other works of him as much as this one. "In The Miso Soup" is not bad, but honestly I don't really enjoy "Piercing" and "Almost Transparent Blue". just my personal impression, anyway..
