      I am so unbelievably disappointed with this book What should I talk about first, the bland characters, the flat plot or the convoluted prose Either way it stank of mediocrity This doesn t feel like a Murakami novel It doesn t sound like a Murakami novel and it doesn t act like one I went back and read certain passages from After Dark and breathed in once again the beautifully rhythmic nature of the prose It just flows from one sentence to the next, from word to word, forming a story that [...]

      Our lives really do seem strange and mysterious when you look back on them Filled with unbelievably bizarre coincidences and unpredictable, zigzagging developments While they are unfolding, it s hard to see anything weird about them, no matter how closely you pay attention to your surroundings In the midst of the everyday, these things may strike you as simply ordinary things, a matter of course They might not be logical, but time has to pass before you can see if something is logical [...]

      I feel pretty conflicted about this one On the one hand, I enjoyed reading it until the final 100 pages or so turned into a slog On the other, it s repetitive and minimalistic in a way that felt generationally out of touch The unnamed main character is in one of these classic Murakami in between periods in his life, where everything has fallen apart but he s somehow fairly financially comfortable and has time to re evaluate things He gets involved with a questionably shady guy, and they star I f [...]

      More on this when it comes out I found it to be a return to form, mingling the realism of Norwegian Wood with the surrealistic approach of Wind Up Bird Fast read for such a long book, and the writing about painting is fascinating The biggest flaw is in the depiction of a 13 year old girl, whose constant fixation on her chest is a distracting running joke that doesn t do anything for the plot.

    6. Seemita on said:

      If I close my eyes tight, what shall I see If I shut out all the noises I can sense, what shall I hear If I shun the world completely, what shall I feel A dark nothingness Or a blinding muddle of overlapping images Heartbeats of silence, may be Or forewarnings of myriad nature Forgotten memories, perhaps Or Unforeseen happenstances The options are many but the answers, scarce And a protagonist embroiled in a similar dilemma propels this part real, part supernatural tale of phantasmagori If I clo [...]
