snippets of oddities,
This review is from: Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman (Paperback)
Great read if you know Murakami already. If you don't you may need to suspend reality and chuck away any idea about stories requiring a start, a middle and an end. His novels barely manage that and this is a collection of short stories.
I'm dont exactly know what I am talking about, but he seems a little more at home with short stories. Perhaps his way of writing (which is beautifully descriptive and tends to skip from idea to idea) is more difficult when he is tied down with characters and threads that you have to persist through a whole novel.
Anyway, I loved it, but then I like all of his stuff.
But....if this is your first Murakami purchase, buy 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles' instead.
