Dance Dance Dance (ダンス・ダンス・ダンス, Dansu Dansu Dansu) is the sixth novel by Japanese writer Haruki Murakami. First published in 1988, it was translated into English by Alfred Birnbaum in 1994. The book is a sequel to Murakami's novel A Wild Sheep Chase. In 2001, Murakami said that writing Dance Dance Dance had been a healing act after his unexpected fame following the publication of Norwegian Wood and that, because of this, he had enjoyed writing Dance more than any other.

Now, where does Dance Dance Dance, figure into this I think Dance Dance Dance is a good book, but if it were rewritten by someone else, in any other voice but the inimitable Murakami's it would have been, simply, bad.

Author: Haruki Murakami. Acclaim for HARUКI MURAKAMI’S.

After reading this book one thing is gnawing in my mind that why I haven't read this book till now, why on the earth I haven't. Murakami has written this book before Norwegian woods if I am not wrong. Dance Dance Dance is one of his another famous book. Really guys if you haven't read much of his books first read Dance Dance Dance then proceed further. After reading so many of his books I realized how he has grown his concept of unrealistic reality from one book to another.

"Dance Dance Dance" is the sixth novel by Japanese writer Haruki Murakami. This is his follow-up to his novel "A Wild Sheep Chase." Surreal, mysterious, and entertaining.

I continue to read Haruki Murakami with absolute delight. This is heralded as a sequel of his "Chasing wild sheep" It is helpful to read "Sheep", but it is not necessary as Murakami provides enough details to give you a solid background to read the story. I had finishing reading "Sheep" and was looking for another one of his stories (I have read six so far) to read. I researched some of the book reviews and "Dance, Dance, Dance" was recommended. One of the reason people were recommending the book is Murakami provides some biographically facts through his character and story. I thought "Sheep" was a good read. "Dance" was one of those books that not only do you relate to, but it become a friend and you are sad when it ends. The narrator is a lost soul at thirty four. By using character foils the narrator goes through a metamorphosis. The metaphysical world continues through the book with his lost girl "Kiki" leading the way. I also felt the author biographical part of the story, to the point I could relate to not only the narrator's metamorphous but some of the characters he meets.
The only downside I found is you read a lot of Murakami, he seems to use stero type characters.
To me it was a great book and one of the reasons I gave it five stars is there enough material in the philosophy and thought the major of the readers will enjoy it.
A few short points
1. My paperback copy is not the one with the woman’s eyes looming over a building. This seems to matter to some reviewers
2. The Sheep man is not one of my favorite Murakami inventions.
I became a fan of Haruki Murakami after reading IQ84. Since then I have been reading his books in order limited to what has been published in English. I am enjoying the process of the introduction of various signature Murakami constructs and conventions. Dance, Dance, Dance is not my favorite or closer to my favorite Murakami books. Of the things I like about it, is about the return of the Sheep Man, and more I cannot say at the risk of a spoiler. For me it is fun to note the advent of what will become staple characters and conventions. Otherwise I am not sure if this is a good starting point for someone with no previous experience of opinion about Murakami. Recommendation: a definite yes for Murakami fans and yes for newcomers but not an enthusiastic yes.

Once again Murakami speaks to us via a nameless protagonist. He is pretty much the same character in his first three books and is not that different from the central male character we will find in some later books. He is slightly disaffected and alienated and speaks more for post Woodstock, Pre Yuppie generation. He is Japanese but as before heavily influenced by Western, especially American culture. He Drinks, constantly and is fairly ready to bed any woman who shares his interest in a one night stand.

He is reflexively anti-establishment and takes unlikely to join a support the local police movement. This last part seems to be his only motivation for failing to cooperate with the police in a murder investigation. A failure that may seem heroic given how hard he works at it, but to me it seemed at best pointless and at worst a huge character flaw. This aspect of the novel seriously aggravated me. No doubt it might have read as a populist position at the time the book was published.

Our un-named narrator for reason never clear is drawn to return to a sleazy, run down hotel as part of finding a previous girlfriend. He motives seems to be between a Spirit Walk and a rescue mission. It may be that the narrator is unsure which and not overly driven to completed either mission. Along the way he will reconnect with the Sheep man who will make his usual jumbled remarks. He will also interact in ways generally positive with several women; a teen ager, he mother and a Hotel employee and a fourth woman a skilled high price call girl.

So yes there is some sex and I guess some violence but neither is graphic or involving many pages of exposition. The language is not likely to offend most readers, but if immorality, drinking, smoking, casual sex (discretely narrated) offend you Dance, Dance, Dance is not for you.
“Wild Sheep Chase” must be read before starting this sequel, because Murakami does not give the new reader adequate background about the characters or plot of the previous novel. The story kicks off with the narrator forming a friendship with former classmate Gotunda, who is now a matinee idol. Gotunda has also slept with Kiki, the narrator’s one-time girlfriend, ear model and call girl, but she has vanished from both their lives. Hoping to find her, our narrator returns to the Dolphin Hotel, only to find that the old hotel has been replaced by a modern hotel high-rise. The new hotel is inhabited by the spirit of the old hotel, which occasionally reappears on different floors, somewhat like “Brigadoon” meets “The Shining.” He becomes enamored of the very proper desk clerk, Yumiyoshi, and it is she who brings sassy, clairvoyant, 13-year old Yuki into his life. From here the story a delightful human drama, with the two of them guiding and transforming each other’s lives. Murakami then engages us in a murder mystery, which involves Kiki and takes a rather bizarre turn. For those of us who did not want “Wild Sheep Chase” to end, Murakami has given us a satisfying and surreal second half. Though not as exciting as “Wild Sheep Chase,” it is filled with memorable characters. If you are new to Murakami, your might gauge your reading pleasure by how much you liked or disliked the tv classic “Twin Peaks.”
I am a big Murakami fan. My first Murakami book being "The Wind Up Bird Chronicles," which if you haven't read, you should do so right away. While some have said this is a sequel to "A Wild Sheep Chase," I never felt that it was a true sequel. Murakami's protagonist always feels like the same guy regardless which story I read.

For some reason I have resisted reading this novel and I have no explanation as to my reluctance, other than I am always 'chasing the dragon' that is Wind up Bird. I was surprised that I enjoyed this book so much. It has the same motifs that all Murakami's books seem to possess: quiet and slow pacing like a lazy day; touch of alternate reality; strange connections revealed while cooking pasta alone and bored; supernatural power of ears.

I love Murakami's style and nuance. If you feel the same you will like this book.
