Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

images0810-bks-Smith-sub-COVER-master675-v2 I’m reading the latest Haruki Murakami and his novel is much like the rest of his work – a balance of being wild and surreal and being absolutely, insanely boring.

You know, the guy up and decided one day to be a writer, without any previous experience (by now, of course, he has tons of experience) but sometimes, his work reminds me of that amateur past. Like it’s bad when I’m reading and I see sentences and passages to delete, right?

  1. Oh no! I’m on the waitlist for that book from the library and have been looking forward to it. Hope the great stuff outweighs the draggy parts.
