Product Specification & Summary

The book, Kafka On The Shore, begins with a teenage boy Kafka, who was abandoned by his mother and sister at the age of three. His father is a rich sculptor working in Tokyo who tells Kafka about the Oedipal prediction. To escape this bad omen, Kafka runs away from home in search of his mother and sister.

The other main lead is an old and pleasant man Nakata, who is unable to read or write due to a weird accident in his childhood. But, he attains a special power to converse with all types of cats. He is particularly fond of a Siamese cat with efficient articulation.

On the other side, Kafka reaches a village and starts working in a library where Miss Saeki and Oshima work together. Miss Saeki is a reserved lady, while Oshima is a gay figure. Oshima guides Kafka.

After a series of thrilling events, Kafka comes to know about a remorseless murder. On the other hand, Nakata ends up hitching a ride with a truck driver, while searching for a missing cat.

Kafka and Nakata never confront each other, but their fates are destined to converge inexplicably.
