Norwegian Wood | Haruki Murakami
post image

Exactly halfway into this book and still dont know how I feel about it. Any of you who has read it, drop in a comment about how you liked it😊

CuriousG I read it years ago and honestly don't remember much of the plot, but I do remember loving it despite it being very odd 5d
ShelfRighteous @CuriousG Atleast I'm not the only one who thinks its odd🙈 5d
CuriousG I haven't read any other Murakami, but my understanding is that odd is the norm for him 😊 5d
ShelfRighteous @CuriousG I'm going to need serious motivation to pick up other of his works after this it seems! But I'll surely read atleast one other book of his before I pass a judgement😁 5d

Kafka on the Shore | Haruki Murakami

Two central characters of the book having a conversation for the very first time!!!

This is a fairly long book, you have to go slow to really follow what's happening and enjoy it!!!

With simple lines, Murakami says big things!!!

These lines were said by Oshima, a very brilliant and intelligent characters.

Oshima had an enclopydic knowledge of books, such an amazing characters and her arc throughout the book amazes you!!

I wish I had the mind of Oshima!!

Centique I feel the same way! It‘s like a deep breath of fresh, clean air reading Murakami 😍. I think it‘s to do with the sharp focus of his writing and yet there‘s always someone or something gentle and soft in his books - like he‘s put a purring cat there on your knee! 2w

More Murakami ! He is definitely weird ( but I‘m not throwing out this baby with the bath water) he really gets us humans in so many ways I can relate to ....
I see good reviews on Litsy ... and so far I‘m under his spell for the 2d time now ... I did love Killing Commendatore too

CaitlinR “The better you were able to imagine what you wanted to imagine, the farther you could flee from reality.” I loved this book.
Cathythoughts @CaitlinR great quote !! He is very quotable. And I love his ‘ overthinking passages ‘ ... the polka dotted tie passage .... he really does the ‘ overthinking ‘ well 👍🏻♥️ so true to life (edited) 2w
SpaceCowboyBooks While I enjoyed this book I felt like he left too many loose ends. Hard Boiled Wonderland was much better. 2w
Cathythoughts @SpaceCowboyBooks oh no !! I can‘t tap your spoiler till I‘m finished .... 😬patience is not my virtue - but I‘m waiting till the end 👍🏻♥️ (edited) 2w

This was fun! First time I‘ve been able to gather my thought for a bingo.

Samplergal Is that supposed to be from the last year? I was confused 🤷🏽‍♀️. I put my first book that I just finished in August. 🤦🏼‍♀️ 2w
Tex2Flo Dunno. I just interpreted it to be anniversary year. 2w
