Reviews

  • Murakami shares with Alfred Hitchcock a fascination for ordinary people being suddenly plucked by extraordinary circumstances from their daily lives

    Sunday Telegraph
  • Not just an impressive essay in witness literature, but also a unique sounding of the quotidian Japanese mind

    Independent
  • A scrupulous and unhistrionic look into the heart of the horror

    Scotsman
  • The testimonies he assembles are striking. From the very beginning Underground is impossibly moving and unexpectedly engrossing

    Time Out
  • There is no artifice or pretension in Underground. There is no need for cleverness. What Murakami describes happens to ordinary people in a frighteningly ordinary way. And it is all the more bizarre for that

    Observer
