So That's What All the Fuss is About!

When Haruki Murakami's novel 1Q40 was finally released in English last year, a general uproar ensued. Murakami has long been viewed as one of the great contemporary novelists of our time and, well, those of us who can’t read Japanese had been waiting for a while to finally get our hands on the English version.  I am very familiar with Murakami, but never got around to reading one of his novels until the other day, as I was browsing at a local bookstore, I came upon a three volume set of 1Q40. My hopes soared…until I saw the hefty price of $50 dollars taped on the back – unfortunately this is still rather out of my recent college grad price range – so I settled instead for Murakami’s novel A Wild Sheep Chase. Let me tell you, before I was even three chapters into the novel, I already fully understood what all the fuss was about! Stay tuned for a follow-up in my next blog! And in the meantime, take my word for it and pick up one of his books and check them out! :)
