    • Few books have infected me with boredom induced ADD, the desire to gnaw my own foot off at the ankle, and the state of mind you might experience if forced to sit upon a nest of hornets while watching your home being burglarized, but this was one of them It took me until page 70 to stop wanting to hop up and rearrange the spice cupboard or my sock drawer every few sentences, but then the feeling returned at page 243 Only 224 pages to go From then on, my hatred and resentment of this book progress [...]

    • Sometimes fate is like a small sandstorm that keeps changing directions You change direction but the sandstorm chases you You turn again, but the storm adjusts Over and over you play this out, like some ominous dance with death just before dawn Why Because this storm isn t something that blew in from far away, something that has nothing to do with you This storm is you Something inside of you So all you can do is give in to it, step right inside the storm, closing your eyes and plugging up your [...]


    • I feel compelled to say something about this right now, simply for the fact that I have seen a lot of Murakami bickering on over the years, and it has done nothing but increase in frequency in the moments leading up to, during, and beyond the release of his mammoth novel 1Q84, meaning the last couple o months I guess I just feel a need to state my case for the man, since he seems severely divisive in this striking way Sure, I could certainly compose a lengthy list of love or hate writers I ve wi [...]



    • There are two reasons as to why I chose Kafka on the shore as my first Murakami s novel 1.The name Kafka in the title unconventional and erudite 2.There are cats in this book and they talk and I love Cats unconventional criteria Hence my journey began into Harukis s surreal world of inebriating storytelling that has surely made me addictive I was completely clueless as to what to expect from this novel and I am glad that I was, since contrariwise the subsequent experience I had wouldn t have bee [...]


    • Kafka on the Shore is a metaphor It follows no rules, it doesn t adhere to reason, and applicability is not an issue It fills you up, it tears you down A fugue of emotions are present, you can t seem to figure out which of the many different realizations flooding you is most important Waves roll up again and again on the beach of your consciousness and at first you resist, but after a while you understand that your struggle is pointless, so you give in You read, you feel, you try to understand, [...]


    • Definitely a page turner Once you start, you just keep on reading Well, why do we stop reading a book I think we can group the reasons into three 1 Natural work, eat, toilet, eyes are tired, other distractions, etc 2 Boredom the book or its part is boring and 3 Need to Digest sometimes I read a phrase or an idea and it is either hard to understand so I read several times or too beautiful that I want it to sink in and I want to remember it forever.For my first Haruki Murakami book, Kafka on the S [...]


    • When I awoke, I realized I had slept through the night But had it been a dream or not It was impossible to tell I got up, took a shower, brushed my teeth and shaved, paying special attention to my neck When my face was again smooth and slightly pink from the razor, I went into the kitchen for breakfast.I washed down an English muffin and jelly with two cups of strong black coffee, no sugar added, and walked out onto the balcony The sun was still creeping higher in the sky, struggling to break th [...]


    • No wonder Kafka on the Shore was on the New York Times 10 Best Books of 2005 list It s one of the most engaging and magical pieces of literature I ve read Reality is unclear The book presses the boundaries of what exists around the characters versus what exists in their minds Powerful forces guide the characters some known, some unknown Odd things happen within the context of everyday Japan Mackarel rains from the sky A metaphysical overseer appears under the guise of Colonel Sanders a villian u [...]




    • The simplistic writing in Kafka on the Shore contrasts pretty sharply with the book s complicated themes Perplexing ultimately mind bending, Murakami helps his reader out by using prose that s as unpretentious as possible He gives us clues as to how to get out of the labyrinth he s constructed in one piece by utilizing images and motifs, allegory and metaphor, constructing an entire world that seems to fit like a transparency over our own There are different levels of the mind, and after reading [...]





    • Is Your Figure Less Than Greek Early in Kafka on the Shore , the 15 year old narrator, Kafka Tamura, warns us that his story is not a fairy tale The book s title is also the name of a painting and of a song mentioned in the novel, and it describes the one photo Kafka s father has kept in his drawer But what Kafka neglects to tell us is that his story is a myth of epic, ancient Greek proportions.Murakami has concocted a contemporary blend of Oedipus and Orpheus, East and West, Freud and Jung, Heg [...]

    • This is my first Murakami, and I already know that it won t be my last.This is one of the strangest books I ve read It stretches the boundaries of belief, and when it breaks through into the realm of pure magic, we discover the journey has only begun The story is told from two different perspectives In the first, Kafka Tamura is a fifteen year old boy who runs away from home to escape a terrifying prophecy that he will kill his father and sleep with both his mother and sister Eventually, he ends [...]




    • Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami leaves the reader with questions unanswered than are easily and superficially wound up in a mainstream fiction Using subtle fantasy, magic realism, repetition, interweaving symbols and metaphors, the author has created a post modern heir to Sophocles and Murakami ties it all together as good as Jeff Lebowski s rug This is finely tuned than Kafka s absurdist comedy, and well rounded He references and alludes to Greek tragedy, Shakespeare, T.S Eliot, Wester [...]

    • Mr Murakami, I m delighted that I found my way back to your writing I hadn t intended a re read, and indeed I had forgotten that I had read this novel, it s not your writing, but my failing memory but as soon as I started reading I remembered, and I simply could not put the book down.Where does one start reviewing a novel that offers so much It brims with allusions to Greek mythology, Japanese and Western literature, Western music, and it playfully explores several ideas.The chapters of the nove [...]
