Haruki Murakami

Postby J_Kale » Wed Mar 24, 2010 12:43 pm

I've recently started reading Haruki Murakami (I know, I'm a little behind the times :oops: ); *loving* his writing, though I'm only half-way through Kafka on the Shore.

Anyone else into Murakami?

Any suggestions for which of his books I should hit next? :D

I must admit I have not heard of this author before (or maybe I have and can't remember). Tell me more! The librarian in me is always looking for more things to read and recommend!

My fiancee loves his stuff, but I have yet to read any of it.
I have a feeling I might not like the genre, but I'm going to give him a try eventually.
"The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall, nations perish, civilizations grow old and die out, and after an era of darkness new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men's hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead."
