Just finished reading this book. Another sublime Murakami book.
I borrowed this book recently from the local library. Its a short book, so did not take time for me to finish it. Haruki Murakami is a wonderful writer and this book is no different. Its a love story but of a different kind. The hero of the book meets a girl when he is 12 and falls in love with her. After his family moves to a different neighborhood, they lose track of each other, but he never forgets her. Years later, he is married, has two daughters, is running his own business and is financially comfortable. That’s when the childhood friend reenters his life. This turns his life upside down and Murakami portrays it very well. The story has a bleak but appropriate ending. I wholeheartedly recommend this book.
I have begun to admire Murakami’s writing more and want to read the rest of his works.
