A Dissenting Opinion on Murakami
And one that I find myself largely in agreement with. Tried The Wind Up Bird Chronicles and Kafka on the Beach several times to no avail. That doesn't mean I won't try again, but I've come to the conclusion that Murakami is a specialty taste. I'll stick with Oe, Akutagawa, Kawabata, Tanizaki, Murasaki, Basho and Issa, and Soseki if I need a dip into Japanese literature (for the moment).
