Here are some theories floated by our readers:
1.) He's the narrator's imaginary friend
2.) He's the narrator's alter ego
3.) He is the narrator
TBNC wishes Kafka a happy birthday when he's not there on the bus. So TBNC HAS to be Kafka talking to himself right...? #1b140_1
4.) He's a ghost
#1b140_4 and wild guess just for fun: Satoru Nakata is Crow. His ghost leaves his body and tries to get other boys to run away from home.
Do you have a theory that's not listed here? Let us know in the comments (but don't spoil it if you've already finished the book!).
