Well, aside from _knowing_ this would be your reaction (I was stumped by your initial enthusiasm) and your being veddy, veddy wrong, let’s just say Murakami aint your man.
Still, I'm tempted to try Wind-up Bird Chronicle anyway. His writing style is intriguing, and maybe the failed aspects of WSC are unique to this book.
Very little if anything in ‘Sheep’ is “failed” by any means. You just didn’t dig it nor will you ‘Wind-up’.
Save your time.
Needless to say the bookstore is chock full of overly written tripe that will sate your need(s) a bit better.

Any movies. And don’t be sorry. I’d rather watch the clouds move.
