Login Register Login Username: Lost Password? Remember me. Dec Posts: Hi everyone, Happy New Year! I recently bought Murakami Haruki's Wild Sheep Chase in paperback, but quickly realised that it will take me hours to read in this form.
Loneliness is a common feeling, and equal to our desire to feel unique. Loneliness is common, as is craving love and connection, as are relationships, as is Murakami. I think that human isolation and loneliness are plain facts. At this point, writing and reading about them again and again to emphasize their existence seem like a trite effort.
Two summers ago, I sold all my Murakami books at the Strand bookstore and got a dollar in return for each. While I was there, I did browse the M section force of habit , and I did flip open After Dark , but closed it after the first page and walked away. Thing is, I was over that period in my life. As Murakami writes in that story about a man and his ex-girlfriend who reunite after many years later just to have sex only to end up not going through with it because that door had closed, I realized that the door back to Murakami and all the feelings I had during the time I was reading him had shut, too.
I recently tried to read 'The Elephant Vanishes'. So glad to know that I'm not really missing out on anything. At first I thought this was going to make me mad because I really love Haruki Murakami and had a period where I could read nothing but Murakami.
But I really liked this. Also, some of your initial reads were ones I wasn't crazy about. I favor 'Norwegian Wood' among the few Murakami books I've read and wanted to read 'Sputnik Sweetheart' for a long time.
Alas, there is no available copy in sight. I think I'm currently on my Murakami phase but for a long time now. I hated 'Kafka', though. I knew there was some sort of theme with his works. Sometimes I'd be too lost in the plot and find the characters just rambling on and on and basically being egotistical.
I think I'm having second thought about expanding my Murakami collection, now that you've enlightened some stuff out for me. People have different reading tastes, no doubt about it. What is the point to write about why she stopped reading HM books — I am not sure? Maybe, she could never understand the writer or truly connect to the stories. His books are not for everybody, like with any other author.
To me — he is brilliant — both, as a writer and as a person. Going into this article I wanted to dislike it but I think it's because of poor choice of the text blurb chosen for the preview. This was a nice article but the blurb doesn't do it justice. You explore something which I think is a very worthwhile subject to write about i. Anyway I really enjoyed this, and I don't know whether it's down to the author or the editor to choose the preview text.
Hope to see more of your writing here! You make a good point about his books thematically, but your reason for not wanting to read Murakami seems a bit…. Because you couldn't stand that you were lonely despite having a relationship you disliked reading a book that mirrored those feelings? Seems kind of like a silly reason for saying you avoid to now read Murakami — it's basically saying you want to avoid confronting those feelings you had about your ex-boyfriend.
Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Good job Grace: My first book was Kafka on recommendation from a friend. Its really memorable and a 'fun' read, the whimsicality of it keeps you turning pages, but yeah I definitely felt let down by the end. I think part of the problem is that all the weird 'stuff' that happens in his book isn't some dream sequence, with some real world explanation, it just IS, which is not something you come across often I don't think… There's no good grounded answer to why someone can talk to cats, but they can.
Don't believe a word of this—Murakami is a genius. Seems like you were looking to Murakami to solve some of your personal problems, which may be why you feel that are over his writings. The best literature I've read, and art I've seen, has made me ask some important questions and provided some much needed perspective, but could never be expected to provide any specific advice. Be aware of where your prejudices may lie, and don't take it out on him, just try to improve on your own work by realizing why his work fell off with you.
Maybe by the time you are in your mid-thirties, you will feel like making some perfectly al-dente spaghetti, and the phone will ring…. Its such a coincidence that thoughtcatalog happened to make an article about Murakami as I am just pages away from finishing Norwegian Wood today! It isn't my favourite book, but it has certainly kept me hooked, and the characters are very likeable. I think I agree that the themes in the book can sometimes feel like they reflect whats going on in your life while you read it as I have felt that a lot with other books I've read.
This is a thoughtful article. I saw this post quoted and wanted to read the context and it sounds to me that your feelings on Murakami's works are strictly personal.
That is, your current distaste for him is justified but it isn't universal. This is one of the reasons why I tend to avoid reading the same author too much—I don't want to feel as though I'm being held captive in the world they have created.
However, for some reason South of the Border West of the Sun effected me the most. Only a few days after I apologized to both of them I found out they had started hooking up together and eventually became boyfriend and girlfriend themselves. I was devastated and that contributed to my ideas about being lonely and that people will leave you forever. I agree with you about Kafka on the Shore. I never finished it because I couldn't focus.
I'm taking a break from Murakami right now as well, there are a lot of books I still haven't read. I just can't handle the mind fuck. I'm in such a sensitive time in my life sobriety that I'm afraid if I start to get those feelings of we are all just lonely and desperate for a connection with another person that I could lose it. Grace — very nice article.
As you began your journey with Murakami mid-way with Norwegian Wood, might I suggest in a true Murakami sense to go backwards from the beginning and read some of his early works like Sheep, Hard-boiled, and Dance? I dare say you might find a little less loneliness even though the characters are still loners and a lot more playfulness.
A fitting, post-heavy relationship fling with a younger Murakami. I think this was brilliantly written. I have so much love for his themes — loneliness and solitude and whatnot — because they seem to be so connected to my life. I don't think there's another writer out there that could phrase loneliness like Murakami did.
He is so subtle with his words; choosing them to be indirect rather than all direct and in your face. His books are the kind that you have to ponder about. And I think that is a mark of a good read — it makes you reflect and think. With that being said, sometimes I totally don't get Murakami at all.
Some of his books are so eccentric and perplexing that they leave me with this void punched in the middle of my heart. It's as though he walked me through a labyrinth but decided to desert me halfway. And I have to find my way back myself.
Nonetheless, I am more inclined to love Murakami. His little idiosyncrasies inject variety into my reading life. And Grace, I really did liked your article. I liked how you related different phases of your life to the books you were reading at that time. It was so deftly written:.
This was a great article. The first Murakami book I read was After The Quake, and halfway through it the subway bombings in Madrid happened and I spent three terrible days trying to get ahold of my best friend. The emotional connection to the book was pretty intense, and since reading more of his works I often feel let down.
What is this theory that loneliness is an indulgent emotion? I don't follow. There are people who truly don't have others who care about them in any way.

I highly recommend this book. The first chapter is amazing and goes on into a very addictive first book. Unfortunately it drags on from second book onwards … Show more Show less. It's totally worth my time. I've spent a few years reading. Sometimes, I forgot about it and I re read book 1 a few times. I hope it's made into a drama.
My review is simple. As an avid reader, this is my definition of a good book. Granted, I only assign books into a good book bad book binary, so this isn't saying much. However, I must add that this is only the twelfth book to make the list. The characters are strangely likable despite them all having bizarre And everything seems so real even though the book is steeped in magical realism which is, after all, the goal of Magical realism. Murakami is one of the few writers that can catch people within the first chapter.
So get a preview, read the first chapter, realize it's amazing, buy the book. Or skip all that and just buy the book now. The e-version is best since the physical book is so thick; makes it hard to carry.
