A story about this — 3 years ago
i don’t know, but i think if i wouldn’t of read the wind up bird chronicles before this, i would like this book a lot better.
the idea was interesting, and i really love when books and people objectively just focus in on one person and just list everything that they do (i know, sounds typical) but really objective. like ‘black hair, glasses, shes reading a book. she orders coffee. a man comes down and sits next to her…’
i don’t know, in order for it to sound cool it has to be pretty blunt sentences, which haruki writes it like that sometimes.
personally, i thought that whole eri asai’s chapters were extremely boring. just seemed like murakami was just sitting there thinking of something that would be really surreal, with no significance.
i love how nothing really gets resolved since, afterall, its all in one night. i loved loved loved how everyone’s story that was so focused on just ended, you know? well, taki…something, and mari’s kind of ending well, yeah? haha anyways, OK book, but not that great or spectacular.
also, it took me a day to read it, it was quite short and easy~
