Haruki Murakami

My first encounter with HM was in 2002 when a friend of mine recommended "Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World." It was then, and still is, the coolest book I've ever read. There are two stories told simultaneously which eventually merge into one - quite beautifully.

Since then, I've gone on to read as much of his work as I can - my personal favourites are "Norwegian Wood" and the short stories in "The Wind Up Bird Chronicles and other short stories." If you haven't read anything by him, I'd start there - and if you have, I'd love to hear your thoughts on his writing.

Sounds interesting.. A friend had a book written by him, but I've never taken the time to read anything he did..

And now you're making a little bit more curious..

I've read After Dark and Norwegian Wood and I enjoyed them both a lot.
I love his simple way of making things so natural, not too much or too less of anything. Everything is so clear, and still there is so much more, which you really can no get the grip of. Wonderful books indeed.

Norwgian Wood is for sure one of the best books I read last year Very Happy
