“A story f love in a cool climate, intensely romantic and weepily beautiful…it is startlingly different: a true original”- Guardian
Indeed an original! Ladies and gentleman, Mr. Murakami is a real artist. Not many modern authors can make people feel like Murakami does. Even though, the main character pisses you off, and sometimes you feel like closing the book , you can´t. Why is that? Because the art, energy and the Murakami world, that never changes, won´t let you!!
This book shouldn´t be read like “first Murakami”, it´s deep and fascinating, but people who don´t know how stuff works in his novels could be a little disappointed. But advanced Murakami readers will fall in love with it for instant.
Book starts slow, main character talks about his life and how he gave his heart to only three women. After talking comes action. When I talk about action I mean the usual Murakami action, Love, Pain,Love,Pain, Pain, Love, Pain. Not to make this too long I will just say…..PERFECT…..
Just make some lovely tea or mulled wine(I choose that one) and enjoy your lovely, nerve racking, sad evening full of deep LOVE!
