Kafka on the Shore

Here are some of my favorite quotes from Haruki Murakami's Kafka on the Shore. Quietly mysterious, this book moved me in so many ways. At times I couldn't look at it, and others I couldn't put it down. Tugging at my heart strings were the cosmically linked characters: A 15 year-old fighting a terrifying prophecy, a man like an empty page who speaks to cats, a fading woman, androgynous and anonymous guides, and a library with something like magic to bring them all together.
