Murakami notes- sheep man?
What are some of the themes that Murakami deals with?

Protagonists that don’t really fit in?
Sheep man-A sheep-man sits in a hotel room and operates a switchboard connecting the lonely, drifting narrator to a web of unforgettable individuals the slightly dreamy, out-of-place 30ish man trying to reason with a world that seems stranger by the minute. A sense that one cannot trust one’s own senses.

It is a book that will be best appreciated by...
