I'm sad to report that I didn't so much love this book I didn't hate it but felt gypped a bit and I guess that comes from all the hoop la I am however proud that I can now boast that I can read a 900 page book This also means I don't have an excuse not to finish up Ulysses Nuts Anywhoooo I'm going to be direct and list what I didn't love1 TOO LONG This might be a given but after finishing all 900 pages I can safely say that he could have cut it by half Did anything even happen in the last third of the book Not so much2 Lame ending I'm not going to spoil anything but after slogging through 900 pages you expect some fireworks at the end One measly fire cracker even Not so much3 Clunky and wooden language which made for clunky and wooden characters Was it just me or did these seem like Japanese robots versus people I always thought his translators did a brilliant job but I think they missed the mark on this one Maybe the switch from first to third person narrative 4 The Murakami obesssions started to get to me I know he's obsessed with cats lesbian love scenes and the magic of pubic hair but it started to get a little overboard At times the whole book felt like a wet dream of prepubescent boy I didn't hate the book but don't think it at all lives up to his earlier stuff There were certainly moments of brilliance but I would not necessarily recommend it to anyone

The year is and the city is TokyoA young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver’s enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her She has entered she realizes a parallel existence which she calls 184 Books PDF “ is for ?. “If you can't understand it without an explanation you can't understand it with an explanation”An oft repeated phrase throughout the first two books of what has been described as Haruki Murakami's magnum opus by an overly enthusiastic reviewer desperate to get a uote on the cover of the book and one that obviously works as a message to the reader confused by the lack of explanation for events throughout the novelBeing only two thirds through the novel at this stage I cannot provide a full response to the text I would have preferred to buy each book individually for psychological reasons than anything the size of this novel is intimidating but this is the year of reading big books and so I finally built up the courage to tackle 805 pages and such is the casual and playful nature of Murakami's prose in this instance that I hardly noticed how heavy the book itself was “Things like this don't happen all that often in one lifetime This is the magnificent world of a picaresue novel Just brace yourself and enjoy the smell of evil We're shooting the rapids And when we go over the falls let's do it together in grand style” Murakami is constantly drawing attention to the tools of a writer the act of reading and the conventions of both but not in the obnoxious way that it seems most contemporary literary sensations seem to revel in His passion for his chosen profession is what shines through the most his adoration for Dickens Orwell Chekov etc rather than a simple and gratuitous aping of what has come before I am nothing I’m like someone who’s been thrown into the ocean at night floating all alone I reach out but no one is there I call out but no one answers I have no connection to anything” On face value 184 is an exact replica of his other works and at the same time nothing at all like what has come before He touches on the same themes in true uentin Tarantino fashion his sexual fetish is made obvious the bleeding together of reality and fantasy the dislocated lives of his protagonists but most prominent is the fact that this is his most romantic work since Norwegian Wood that special kind of magical and tortured romance you seem to only find in the novels of Haruki Murakami “Wasn't it better if they kept this desire to see each other hidden within them and never actually got together That way there would always be hope in their hearts That hope would be a small yet vital flame that warmed them to their core a tiny flame to cup one's hands around and protect from the wind a flame that the violent winds of reality might easily extinguish” A lot has been made of the length massive and the fact that there's so much repetition of basic information but beyond some mild irritation I can't say I really noticed I freuently realised that I was X number of pages in and not much had actually happened plot development was minimal or the direction was vague but these are not bad things when part of a story told by Haruki Murakami especially one told in such vivid detail I'm very much looking forward to finding out if anything gets resolved if anything starts to make any sense at all if the star crossed lovers find happiness what exactly it is that the Little People have planned and the answers to any number of other fascinating and intriguing uestions that have been posed throughout but then if the general theme so far is anything to go by perhaps I will be pondering the meaning for many years to come“It is not that the meaning cannot be explained But there are certain meanings that are lost forever the moment they are explained in words”Book 3 Review

184 Books 1 2A mystery a fantasy a novel of self discovery a dystopia to rival George Orwell’s is Haruki Murakami’s most ambitious undertaking yet an instant best seller in his native Japan and a tremendous feat of imagination from one of our most revered contemporary write. I finished 184 book 1 2 on Monday Afterwards I went running in the woods I ran faster than I have in a while and my thoughts went back and forth through my head thinking of everything anything and nothing at all It then came to me I was stuck in that world Murakami's world I was scared I ran through the woods in the middle of the day and felt scared Figured the people I met could be anything Like in Murakami's universe And I thought that if I'd met a bear I wouldn't have been all that surprisedIt took me a while to get into this book a couple of hundred pages actually I was a bit disappointed at first The simple straight forward language didn't uite appeal to me this time I don't think it was any different from his other books really I've just read the wrong authors lately Wrong in the sense of preceding Murakami I've been spoiled by my number 1 favorite these days Tomas Espedal And it took me a while to get to know the characters At first sight they weren't very Murakami like They weren't uite the Watanabe character I always long for But of course they were I only discovered that after a while The independent young man is there as a woman too this time but somehow that is not what the book is aboutThe story is a strong one the book a page turner somewhat similar to Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World I loved that one only not uite so abstract It is a heart breaking story one of broken childhoods loss loneliness It's about love murder hope about strong individuals trying to live their lives their own way It took me a while to get out of the book as well to get it out of the system I'm not sure I have yet I fell in love with the characters the universe 184 is the sad love story from Norwegian Wood and South of the Border West of the Moon and it is the abstract world from A Wild Sheep Chase and The Wind Up Bird Chronicle And yet it is completely it's ownAs always I regret finishing the last Murakami book and envy all of you who haven't yet read it all Next year book 3 will be published in Norwegian and although I do see book 1 2 as a complete and finished story I look forward to it Of course I do
