Unfortunately, before I was even halfway through with this book, my Literature teacher casually spoilt the plot for me. :( Despite that, I still found Sputnik Sweetheart highly engrossing and I was really impressed by the unique and interesting plot. Murakami’s style of writing is also especially commendable.
The focus of the novel initially seemed to be on the heroine, Sumire, but towards the ending, I loved how the focus subtly shifted to the narrator, mysteriously named K. More things were revealed about K and I appreciated this fresh yet subtle twist and I guess this is a nod towards Murakami’s immaculate talent in writing.
Definitely worth a read and another afterwards!
