4.0 out of 5 stars Murakami cool, in diary form!
This is a sweet little diary full of quotes, book covers and associated Murakami paraphernalia; liberally sprinkled with book histories, publishing dates and Japanese holidays.

4.0 out of 5 stars Murakami cool, in diary form!, 18 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Murakami Diary (Paperback)
This is a sweet little diary full of quotes, book covers and associated Murakami paraphernalia; liberally sprinkled with book histories, publishing dates and Japanese holidays.

It's very beautiful, and even comes in a dust jacket, and despite all there is to be enjoyed it still feels quite minimalist; the black and white and red styling complimenting the character of Murakami's novels perfectly.

From a bibliophile's point of view, it is certainly a valued item to keep alongside Murakami's wonderful novels. The only problem i can see is exactly why you would want to write in it at all!

5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime, 1 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Murakami Diary (Paperback)
What an excellent idea! Examples of Murakami's rich and ethereal prose grace this pocket-sized diary, with quotes from his novels scattered like confetti throughout the pages. On top of this there are great little snapshots that also link in to Murakami's work, such as novel covers, cats and cherry blossom. The diary has a dust-jacket and is simply and beautifully designed as per the image above. There is plenty of room for entries and I am loving using this diary immensely. It's so cool I almost wanted to keep it intact but that would have been a waste.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good, 7 Sept. 2008
This review is from: Murakami Diary (Paperback)
Firstly the price on Amazon is really good (£9.99 in stores) and secondly its a beautiful diary as odd and as surreal as Murakami Diary ought to be. Its full off quotes, pictures and facts about the books.However, some of the days are that full after a quote its hard to fit any writing in, plus it comes in a dust cover which most people like but i find really annoying, because underneath its plain white and looks dull. But over all its a unique diary and a must have for Murakami Fans! P.S If there was a 4.5 option I would have given it that!!!

This review is from: Murakami Diary (Paperback)
It looks beautiful but it's v hard to use, the month isn't on every page so you have to flick forward or back to check you're on the right page. I'm now buying a second diary as I really can't get away with it.

This review is from: Murakami Diary (Paperback)
The diary is gorgeous but for the wrong year! Why would Amazon sell an out of date diary?
