This is a 1987 novel by Japanese author Haruki Murakami. The novel is a nostalgic story of loss and burgeoning sexuality.
This is the first book of Murakami that I have ever read so far and I ended hunting all his other books as a result.
It originally started on this quote I read on tumblr really struck my heart in a way.I ended sharing the quote on FB and surprisingly,two friends who are huge fan of Murakami recommended me to read his novels.
“And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.”
I was so glad I did because so far,this is my second fave book this year (next to MY NAME IS MEMORY).Also,I found a new fave author with an ODD,adventurous and mind provoking writing style.
So this is probably one of the longest review I've ever written as I was so much impressed with it.So I'm going to write my own review alongside some reviews or thoughts I've copied online that I find myself agreeing with or does makes so much sense.
QUOTED FROM HER BOOKS:
This is in reference to people who say things that are contradicting or confusing.Such as when one is telling a story and the listener will say "shut up" and then asked "and then what happened" like you really don't know what they mean specially if you're not familiar with the American culture.
"Don't hold on things,It will only bring you pains"
"You can't always count on other people to make things better for you"
No matter what,you're going to forget someone who didn't forget you (or the other way around)
How come,when you wipe a dust it's called dusting but when you wipe a spill,it's not called spilling?
It is better to give than to receive
Do you live each day as if its your first or it
last? Either or, you should have diaper on.
"I am capable of making terrible mistakes and I am also prepared to take responsibility for my actions"
"The things I like about her over a decade earlier-her humor,her curiosity,her hustle,her interest in the weird and transgressive"
-Piper describing Nora -
"I say "we" and I mean myself,my soul,my selves,my many lives.I say "we" and I also mean the other ones like me who have the memory.The conscious record or experience on this earth that survives every death.There aren't many,I know.Maybe one in a century,one born out of millions.We love one another rarely,but believe me,there are others.Atleast one of them has a memory far more extra ordinary than mine"
I am glad I read the book before watching it because I get to compare my own expectation based on my own imagination to the film and I am so happy I was not disappointed at all.
In fact, it exceeded my expectation. The main characters (Miller, Watson and Lerman along with Chbosky's directing the movie) was awesome and have done an amazing job! This review will be a combination of the book and the movie.
INTENSE. DANGEROUS. ADDICTIVE.
