This Audiofy audiobook chip packs a full 7 hour reading of 'Kafka on the Shore' on a tiny memory card. A single Audiofy audiobook chip, hardly larger than a stamp, holds a complete digital audiobook, and saves the last listening position automatically, unlike CDs. With an SD memory card slot or low cost adapter like those for digital cameras this Audiofy audiobook chip can be played on Microsoft Windows and Apple Macintosh desktop computers or laptops (Microsoft Windows XP/2000/Me/98, or Apple Mac OS X 10.3.9 and above) or transferred to Apple iPod media players. Audiobook chips also move seamlessly to most Palm OS and Pocket PC handheld PDAs with SD expansion slots, as well as Treo and Windows Mobile 'smartphones' (Palm OS 5.2 or Windows Mobile 2002 and above)... With 'Kafka on the Shore,' Haruki Murakami gives us a novel every bit as ambitious and expansive as 'The Wind Up Bird Chronicle,' acclaimed both here and around the world for its uncommon ambition and achievement, and likely to be read and admired for decades to come. A tour de force of metaphysical reality, 'Kafka on the Shore' is powered by a teenage boy, Kafka Tamura, who runs away from home either to escape a gruesome oedipal prophecy or to search for his long missing mother and sister; and an aging simpleton called Nakata, who never recovered from a wartime affliction and now is drawn toward Kafka for reasons he cannot fathom. Their odyssey, as mysterious to them as it is to us, is enriched by mesmerizing events. Cats and people carry on conversations, a ghostlike pimp employs a Hegel quoting prostitute, a forest harbors soldiers apparently unaged since World War II, and rainstorms of fish (and worse) fall from the sky. There is a brutal murder, with the identity of both victim and perpetrator a riddle. Extravagant in its accomplishment, 'Kafka on the Shore' displays one of the world's truly great storytellers at the height of his powers.
