For me, it was a wonderfully spellbinding mystery, thick with puzzles and oddities begging to be unpacked. There is simply so much here. Like k kcenter May 22, Although there were interesting anecdotes that held my attention, I started skimming over pages and pages of trivial, mind-numbing details, reading just the first sentence of each paragraph until something caught my attention again.

The only thing that kept me going to the end was the anticipation of a big payoff, which the glowing reviews seemed to offer.

No such luck. Hero finally "battles" some nebulous unexplained force to rescue his beloved wife. The end.

The intriguing stories of all the auxiliary characters were by far more interesting than anything that happened to our passive "hero. I would say, if you were satisfied with the ending of the TV series "Lost," then you might enjoy reading about a lot of crazy stuff that ultimates goes nowhere. Like s scribby May 18, I was very disappointed by this. I continued reading only because I wanted to find out how it ended.


The story does fall together somewhat around the middle, but by then I'd pretty much given up on anything really interesting happening. Although it takes place in the same strange dream-world as Murakami's other works that I've read and shares a lot of their elements ; I generally found it just straining too hard. If you're reading Murakami for the first time, try a different book.

Like t tjdickey Apr 12, In the words of one of his characters, Murakami here is "engaged in a serious search for the meaning of his own existence. Yet, as with the stylized gestural language of Noh Theater, or the unstated inferences and juxtapositions of Haiku, Murakami's text will move you in unexpected and subterranean ways, if you allow. A fellow reader tells me images from this book still come vividly back to him years afterwards Seja o primeiro a avaliar este item Lista de mais vendidos da site: In a Tokyo suburb a young man named Toru Okada searches for his wife's missing cat.

Soon he finds himself looking for his wife as well in a netherworld that lies beneath the placid surface of Tokyo.

As these searches intersect, Okada encounters a bizarre group of allies and antagonists: Gripping, prophetic, suffused with comedy and menace, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle is a tour de force equal in scope to the masterpieces of Mishima and Pynchon. Murakami is a genius.

Murakami's most ambitious attempt yet to stuff all of modern Japan into a single fictional edifice. Compartilhe seus pensamentos com outros clientes. Compra verificada.

This is my fifth book by Murakami. I am constantly amazed by his imagination and the situations he creates and of course, his creative genius.

However, I did find this book difficult to become completely absorbed in. It seemed like every single character intentionally had something "odd or unusual" about them and it just became overwhelming and confusing and, at times, tedious for me to keep my interest up.

The stories and dreams and flashbacks all presented in italics seemed to just go on and on for far too long. The book did have some of the fascinating "alternate realities that we have come to expect from Murakami.

Overall, I think the book could have been shorter and more concise. But, that said, I am looking forward to my sixth book How does one review a Murakami book? First I will start by saying, this guy is way too smart for me to grasp all of what he writes.

Having said that, I think there was a time in my life that I would have grasped a lot more, but perhaps that time for me has passed I think to truly appreciate all he expresses in a book that one must read his work over and over. If there is ever a book that you wish to have a dog-eared copy of, with passages underlined 3 times in bold pen, Murakami's works would be it. He words sink into your bones, into your very tissue Murakami is that I often get so enthralled with a single passage that my mind must stay and linger there for a great deal of time.

Never mind that I have tried to continue on reading, my mind is still caressing a single passage over and over Now this book. Many questions are asked here I often get aggravated with authors that do this, but not with Murakami. He always ends the books in the only way possible to end them! Yes, he has the moon and the stars in this book. He has good and evil.


He has mysterious women I think this book had a beautiful, fairy tale ending to it. It was so suspenseful in parts I usually don't get my heart pounding so fast as this book did!

How far would you go for love? How much faith could you put in what your heart knows to be true, even though you mind tells you it is not? Finally, the question is asked is all you gain in the end worth the price you pay to stay true to your own self?

Of course there are many other aspects to this bookIn , Haruki Murakami was 29 and running a jazz bar in downtown Tokyo. In this series View all. As this compelling story unfolds, the tidy suburban realities of Okada's vague and blameless life, spent cooking, reading, listening to jazz and opera and drinking beer at the kitchen table, are turned inside out, and he embarks on a bizarre journey, guided however obscurely by a succession of characters, each with a tale to tell.

His passions colour his non-fiction output, from What I Talk About When I Talk About Running to Absolutely On Music, and they also seep into his novels and short stories, providing quotidian moments in his otherwise freewheeling flights of imaginative inquiry.

It takes time for you to get into the flow of things but overall the book stays true to Murakami's signature style, which I absolutely love. Martha Wells.
