Now one of my favorites

by ninthchord on Nov 15, 2010

This was my second Murakami book and now I want to read everything he has written. His prose is meaningful, achingly honest and often whimsically descriptive. I fell in love with all of the characters. I delayed finishing the book for two days so that the experience of being in the process of reading the book would last longer. This is definitely one book I will read again.


Starter Set Murakami

by greebs on Jun 25, 2008

While this doesn't have the surrealism of some of my favorite Murakami novels, Norwegian Wood is a simply beautiful story of love, loss and sadness - themes that pervade all of his works. It's one of his most popular novels and captures a sad but sweet story of a man in love with a troubled woman, and his life with and without her. If you like this, it's a nice first step into the brilliant world of Murakami. After this (and, perhaps, South of the Border, West of the Sun), things get a little wackier - in a good way. Definitely recommended.
