There is no doubt in my mind that Murakami is setting the reader up, you certainly have to pay attention. What I have found intriguing is the bizarre connections and repetitions that he makes. For instance, the husband goes to the cleaners and hears music playing. The first song he hears is “The Hawaiian Wedding” song, the next song he hears, is one about Canada. A few chapters later, we listen to Creta telling the story of her sister. The sister once lived in Hawaii, then she moved to Canada. This type of repetitiveness runs through the chapters that I have read so far. Creta also mimics the wife’s words regarding their respective sisters. And of course, water runs through the book, and the missing cat. I have a feeling the missing cat means more than a feline gone missing.
