    Description
    Fully illustrated and beautifully designed, this is a unique and wonderfully creepy tale that is sure to delight Murakami fans.'All I did was go to the library to borrow some books'. On his way home from school, the young narrator of The Strange Library finds himself wondering how taxes were collected in the Ottoman Empire. He pops into the local library to see if it has a book on the subject. This is his first mistake. Led to a special 'reading room' in a maze under the library by a strange old man, he finds himself imprisoned with only a sheep man, who makes excellent donuts, and a girl, who can talk with her hands, for company. His mother will be worrying why he hasn't returned in time for dinner and the old man seems to have an appetite for eating small boy's brains. How will he escape?

    It was everything and nothing

    The book opened up to me safe in the knowledge that I would not chew the paper but just chew through the words slowly. My eyes devoured the lovely illustrations and the dream like world created by Murakami. My younger sister finished the book in under 30 minutes - it took me an hour and a half.

    This was supposed to be a children's book but deep down inside aren't we all just children? If you've never read Murakami and want a taster - this is perfect.

    A beauty worth reading

    If you have read Murakami, you have probably come to expect stories with deep insight about life from him. Well, this sis quite the opposite. The book was written with children in mind specifically and is gorgeous to boot. Deeply philosophical at the nonsensical level, yet a fascinating read.
    If you remotely like children's books that are actually deep and leave an impression (Alice in Wonderland, anyone?), this one is not to be missed

    Beautiful and Surreal

    It's Murakami... Beautiful and Surreal.. The story itself is weird and wonderful in true Murakami fashion. Set in a library, it is part horror story, part fairy tale. READ IT !!
