Re: Book 2, Ch. 6 - Inquiry on Jellyfish
As I read this book, my feelings on Kumiko waver from one side to the other. I find Toru very likable, and to think she cheated on him and left him... well. That doesn't make her seem very sympathetic. But I think in this chapter some empathy for her can be found, as well as an understanding as to how the two of them came to be together. Of course, all this with Murakami's trademark style, leaving more mysteries than answered questions.
