TED-Ed tells you to read the mind-bending book Kafka On The Shore by Japanese author Haruki Murakami. The book follows the inner turmoil of a young man who’s unhappy with his home life and decides to runs away.

The story follows his experiences and often takes strange and surreal turns. The plot of the story can be a little hard to follow at times, as rules about reality, language and even time are broken throughout the narrative. But TED-Ed tell us that this book isn’t just an A to B story. It’s a tapestry of ideas and thoughts. This animation brings to life some of the more complicated elements of the book and reveals how they reflect facts about the author’s life and the complicated and multi-faceted era that he grew up in.
