If you haven‘t read any Murakami yet I don‘t recommend this be your first. If you have already enjoyed some of his other works this is a nice one to check off your list.

I appreciate his style, because at the end everything isn‘t all wrapped up with a pretty bow. I enjoy the balance he strikes between strange and opaque. I find this book to lean a little more towards opaque, hence the So-So rating.

My first completed #DoubleSpin too!

I listened to this on audio and have decided that this is not the right format for Murakami. I need to concentrate when reading Murakami and with audio it is too easy@to get distracted.

I will continue following the Rat but in printed format

There‘s no plot in Murakami‘s first book, but it does introduce themes that he returns to again and again in later works. It also seems semi-autobiographical, from what I know about Murakami. The men are lonely, divorced and utterly clueless about women. But they do have good taste in music. It‘s the first book in The Rat series, but you won‘t miss much if you skip it.

I love Murakami‘s novels, but not so his short stories or novellas ... but this novella about nameless boy spending his summer break in home town is good introduction to his more demanding stories. #AuthorAMonth2020 #HarukiMurakami

Murakami‘s first novel is a coming-of-age story of a young writer and his friend whose name was Rat. They‘re college students in the late 1960s/early70s: radios, neighborhood bars, lust, love, shabby cars, clever wit, and dreams

Book 4 for #AuthoraMonth - March.This is a short book & the first book Murakami wrote from what he calls his immature period). It was written at his Kitchen Table whilst he had other employment. I have to say I quite enjoyed this one and it really felt you were living his life alongside Rat and the Narrator. It takes place following the suicide of a former girlfriend. It has a different style to his later work but no poorer for that. Worth a read.

Andrew65 @Soubhiville Not sure if you have finished counting the Murakami books but this one should be 12. 3y
Soubhiville Cool, I‘ll add it. Thanks! 3y
Andrew65 @Soubhiville 😀 I‘m annoyed at myself because I read another one and forging to post the review, can‘t think why with everything going on. 😳 Must be a nightmare task for you. Stay safe and thanks. 😍 3y
