Inspired me to learn about:
A group of compelling characters from 14-20 years old, who are broken in their own ways. The characters are so intriguing that you cannot help exploring them how they go to school, the bond builds, they go to universities, have sex, kill themselves, they move on, find themselves job, suffer, commit suicide, again try to build relationships, have sex and it keeps on until they grow older.
It’s a journey which sounds so easy but loads of complications are there. Yet, to keep on moving is the mantra of life. You’ll meet people, and they’ll be gone, but your journey should not be stopped until you die.
3 takeaways from the book:
1) The novel was first published in 1987 in Japadln which became a super popular across the globe. Even after 33 years later, it doesn’t fail to amaze the reader.
2) I’ve been a great fan of Murakami. He reflects my thoughts when I read them, what I write about sex, our understanding of observation matches almost every time.
3) This is the 5th book I’ve completed in the span of 6 month and I’ve already got the 6th book (Men Without Women by Murakami) available with me to start.
Tell me in the comment section, which book have you read of Murakami. 🙂
