Kafka on the shore cont.

I am still reading Kafka on the Shore and unfortunately it has slowed down. I feel the author just wants to slow down and confuse the reader for a while. Also he seems to want to shock the reader with showers of leeches and mackerel in Japan and characters meeting Johnnie Walker and Colonel Sanders. It is almost as if he is challenging me 'do you really want to read on?'

The plot is still there, somewhere and I am still enjoying it. I am determined to read on and finish, I am also determined to try to make a list of books I want to read and stick to it.

Can anyone tell me why Oshima drives a Mazda Miata, when Miata's are only produced in North America and are known as MX-5's in Japan?
