The story is told of Tsukuru Tazaki, an introverted boy who in his teenage years is a member of a group of friends with particular characteristics that together complement each other. This seemingly "magical" group from one day to the next decides to break the relationship with Tsukuru without explaining.
Tsukuru Tazaki takes you on a journey towards depression, the latent idea of suicide and finally resilience.
Over the years he becomes an engineer who is able to work on the design and maintenance of train stations, which since he was young was one of his passions. However, thanks to a close person, for whom he feels a great attraction, he realizes that all these years he continues to carry the weight of uncertainty for having been removed from that group.
He decides to travel to his hometown and look for those who were his friends to close once and for all that cycle.
The author shows us complex psychological disorders that can be common in the course of life, but above all it is gratifying the way he gives us a glimpse of Japanese culture.
I thought it was a simple and interesting novel, of those that once you take the thread to the story you have to finish it.
An attractive mix of several themes that leave you thinking for a while.
