It was a refreshing getaway from the real world, but I didn't have that edge-of-your-seat-must-read-on feeling that most people describe about it. It was more like a not-really-sure-whats-going-on-so-read-till-its-over kind of feeling. It did get me thinking about who my alternate reality arch-nemesis might be, havn't come up with anything yet.

I was reminded of this book today because I was discussing the movie Burning which is based on one of Murakami's short stories with my coworker, and he asked if there have been any other adaptations of Murakami's works. I googled it an saw that there was a stage adaptation of this one, and promptly stated I would probably throw up if forced to watch it (and not in a good way). So, simply put, this one is not for the faint of heart.It had everything I expect in a Murakami book: a missing woman, a cat, weird sex dreams, the consumption of simple meals and a few strange side characters. I was especially excited to see Ushikawa of 1Q84 fame show up, and no you cannot convince me that it wasn't the same character. Overall, it wasn't my absolute favorite Murakami, but out of the ones I've read so far, I'd say it's below 1Q84 and Tsukuru, but on par with Norwegian Wood. ( )

A lifeless japanese David Lynch-like story. ( )

I have read many of Murakami's books and have found them always perfectly enjoyable. I do, however, question the sexual politics of the 1q84 series. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle has questionable sexual politics, too.

Just as bad is utterly unnecessary and excessive violence. Some novels and movies use extreme violence to make you sympathise with the people who had to live through it. What Is The What is a novel that worked for me in this way. Whenever I hear of the lost boys of Sudan, I have a much better idea of the difficult circumstances in which they had to survive.

The extreme violence in The Wind-Up Chronicle is almost written as entertainment. The scenes of violence are frequently revisited. The story itself is to meandering and doesn't have a well-constructed plot. The characters seem interesting, but do not seem to live up their full potential.

In short, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle book was a huge disappointment. What is worse: it was utterly offensive. ( )

I received this book as a gift from my secret Santa on Library Thing quite a few years ago now. I just kept slipping past it. First of all because it was a fantasy book which is not my preferred genre, but also because of the length of it. I finally decided to read it because I was looking for something a bit different to get into. The book surprised me with how well it was written, even though I know this volume was a translation from the original. It also surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. I really had trouble putting it down. The book begins in a Tokyo suburb in June of 1984 and ends in December 1985. During all that time of 607 pages we don't go very far geographically from that Tokyo suburb, but we do make several forays into "the ether" and a completely different "other world" that seems just as real as the Tokyo suburb. Our journey is led by an intrepid pilgrim called Tori Okada who is a 20-something Japanese man with a wife and a cat. The book begins with the disappearance of that cat, and that incident alone sends Tori on his long journey. Along the way he meets a very bizarre group of unforgettable characters. The genius of Haruki Murakami's writing is that the book feels so real and elemental. It didn't strike me that I was reading and fully believing some very bizarre occurrences and some really horrific stories. Some of the stories were about World War II and
before that, the Japan-Russia war in Mongolia. I knew nothing about this page in history, but what I learned about it from this book, and from the way it was presented as in a sort of story format, it brought the full horrendous details of both wars to my mind. That's not all. There are some very funny parts, and some very heartbreaking parts, and some poignant parts that cover a lot of human emotions. The dreamlike quality of the writing made all these discoveries even more real. This is an excellent book, and one that even non-fanciers of the fantasy genre like me can enjoy. ( )

By the book's midway point, the novelist-juggler has tossed so many balls into the air that he inevitably misses a few on the way down. Visionary artists aren't always neat: who reads Kafka for his tight construction? In ''The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle'' Murakami has written a bold and generous book, and one that would have lost a great deal by being tidied up.
 
Mr. Murakami seems to have tried to write a book with the esthetic heft and vision of, say, Don DeLillo's ''Underworld'' or Salman Rushdie's ''The Moor's Last Sigh,'' he is only intermittently successful. ''Wind-Up Bird'' has some powerful scenes of antic comedy and some shattering scenes of historical power, but such moments do not add up to a satisfying, fully fashioned novel. In trying to depict a fragmented, chaotic and ultimately unknowable world, Mr. Murakami has written a fragmentary and chaotic book.

«Ah, così lei ama la letteratura! – mi avrebbero detto, – anch'io. Da giovane ho letto parecchio». Per loro la letteratura era qualcosa che si leggeva da giovani. Come in primavera si colgono le fragole, e in autunno si vendemmia.
«Io ho solo sedici anni, e il mondo non lo conosco ancora bene, ma una cosa sola posso affermare con sicurezza: se io sono pessimista, un adulto che non lo sia, in questo mondo, è proprio un cretino».
