Quirky characters, a hotel with a phantom floor, sexy girls, rock music, especially Talking Heads - this gloriously imaginative romp around contemporary Japan defies description. A cult novelist with a huge international following, but also with a serious literary reputation, Haruki Murakami gains more fans with each book. Dance, Dance, Dance is one of his finest and most loved.

Reader Rupert Degas received extreme plaudits for his other Murakami recordings, both A Wild Sheep Chase and The Wind-up Bird Chronicle. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ophelia | 2/20/2014

    " This is my FAVOURITE BOOK OF ALL TIME. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ali | 2/15/2014

    " I liked this one more than A Wild Sheep Chase, but less than Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World. I think Murakami is best when writing about fantastic alternative worlds. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anda Marie | 1/29/2014

    " 3.5 stars, really. my least favorite murakami to date, but wow, his stories really stick with you no matter what. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ian Jones | 1/23/2014

    " If I could write as well as anyone I liked (and I couldn't pick Douglas Adams) it'd be Murakami. Hauntingly beautiful and utterly compelling. A surreal masterpiece. As always, Murakami's narrative voice is second to none. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mara | 1/22/2014

    " surreale, dolce ed onirico "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christoph Fischer | 1/12/2014

    " The first Murakami book I have read and often described as the most accessible one, this book leads you into a mysterious and strange world of fantasy, dream and jazz, but such a description - like any other - does not the book justice. I cannot recommend this author strongly enough. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 1/1/2014

    " No ending, but excellent visualizations & incredible dream like transitions "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sean | 12/28/2013

    " This is the only Murakami book I haven't liked. It reads like a sort of boring parody of his other books. It feels entirely half-hearted in every respect. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sergiiy | 11/3/2013

    " weeeeird book that spooked me at times. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bonnie | 11/1/2013

    " This book is too great for me to attempt to explain how great it is. I'd never get it right. I guess it's kinda pointless to write anything at all, but i am. So there. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom Clawser | 9/20/2013

    " Something about Murakami's writing draws me in. My fourth won't be my last! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beau | 8/22/2013

    " I really enjoyed Dance Dance Dance. I listened to the audio while i drove. It really reeled me in at the beginning. It doesn't exactly stick to one plot. It bounces around all held together by one common theme. I plan to read more by this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Marc | 8/9/2013

    " meesterlijk "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kimberly Kieffer | 6/12/2013

    " Another amazing work of introspection and delightful, magical realism. I would set this work next to The Wind Up Bird in sophistication and perhaps it even rivals that in organization and character development. A great piece. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jules | 10/3/2012

    " All Murakami books I read seem to be connected - and the guy either loves or loathes cats! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Alma | 9/14/2012

    " Absolutely loved it! I will probably go ahead and read everything he ever wrote :-) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Roger Beardsworth | 6/25/2012

    " Typically good Murakami. I'd love to be one of the male characters from one of his novels, they're always so existentially cool. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lisa | 5/12/2012

    " Pleasurable up to a point .... "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kelly Sanford | 1/6/2012

    " When was the last time that you read a book that included a Sheep Man that was responsible for the "connectedness" in your life? This book was well written and but a bit weird. A somewhat quick read but not as good as the "Wind Up Bird". "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 8/16/2011

    " I always love this author. I have read both Wind Up Bird Chronicle and Kafka on the Shore. He is always a slow, savory, thoughtful read but this one I didn't love as much as the other 2 I read but I still really enjoyed it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Coolcider | 5/9/2011

    " The Book of My Life! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elysa | 5/4/2011

    " I will read more of his books as they are very thought provoking and weird. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nitu | 5/4/2011

    " Well,this book starts with an unconventional twist and as the story unfolds its turning out to
    be a thrilling murder mystery
    "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Isopoda | 4/29/2011

    " In two words: Awesome Awesome "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sanjana | 4/27/2011

    " I bow down to thee, O Murakami. I loved every single minute of it.
    Will keep moving my feet, no matter what! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 kit | 4/19/2011

    " i think every murakami novel (that i've read) is essentially the same, iterations of the same characters doing similar things, which is great if you're me and the library is about to close. high brow junk food for the semi-neurotic. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Maxine | 4/19/2011

    " I felt the themes in this novel had been done before and better in some of his others. Mostly I felt bored reading this. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 4/16/2011

    " A follow up to "Wild Sheep Chase," with maybe fewer of the fantastical elements. "
