Murakami marathon

Wind-up Bird Chronicles, Kafka on the Shore, After Dark, Dance Dance Dance and Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman. All five for less than RM 150. Also Six Suspects, Tale of Two Cities and Sherlock Holmes.

Excuse me if I don’t blog as much in the next 2 months or so. Too bad Norwegian Wood sold out. Should’ve bought them all on the first day of the Popular Bookfest. But still, awesome discounts are awesome…..

    I have just finished Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Murakami myself, and have to say, that he is a wonderfully engaging writer. Definitely worth reading.

    Good to see someone else going on a Murakami binge. I did the same thing a couple weeks back. Don’t forget about A Wild Sheep Chase! A must read before reading Dance Dance Dance (my personal favorite).

    Try “South of the Border, West of the Sun” as well, it’s beautiful.

    Dance Dance Dance is my favourite too. But Norwegian Wood hits me the hardest, due to personal experience.

    I’m still making my way through The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle, it’s the last of those that I have.

    Oh, Murakami? I just read several of his short stories and “Underground War”…

    haha i went through a murakami binge during the summer…. i have to say i didnt go out much. the books were just that good. i see you got a good number of his works, but do read “south of the border, west of the sun” because it is beautiful and short. hmm “after the quake” is a collection of short stories with a central main character so definitely give that one a try also. i got “after dark,” but it will have to wait a little longer; im reading “the plague” right now.
    oii i almost forgot is biographical work “what i talk about when i talk about running!” read that one too ^_^

    A pity Norwegian Wood was sold-that was one of my favorites. Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World *is* my favorite of his, and if you haven’t read it, definitely find a copy somewhere.
