Melissa Gordon infographic EVER.


Puty P I love this infographic. Can I share this? Thanksssssssss xD

David Tendo That TOTALLY sums up Murakami's books! But there's a huge chunk missing for "sex" - 1Q84 was full of it! Maybe we need a whole new pie-chart for the "sex".

Lola Yes, weird sex should be included loll. I love this. ^

Jessica Murakami needs to employ an editor!!! This would have been so much better as a 300-400 page novel!

Nirusiya Krishnathas I need more jazz music in my life !

Bee Roberts You missed breasts. Oh so many breast references!


Amany Rajab LOL!! too true but its missing awkward disengaged sex scenes

Azeezur Khan lol you gotta love the sex in Murakami's books though! Descriptive to say the least.

Nikolaos Kantanas LOl this is so true.

Nicola You missed breasts and pubic hair.

Caroline This is hilarious! I'm sitting here, wondering why Murakami is as successful as he is, and I guess it's because people are somewhat interested in these topics! I usually get super annoyed at repetitive authors (think Rick Riordan) but for some reason, I keep reading his books! I guess it's just how he puts so much effort into detailing small things (which can get boring, granted, but can also make something as simple as Aomame pulling a needle out of her bag seem immensely interesting. Honestly, I stopped reading this book half-way through, and it took me about a month to get back to reading it and eventually finishing it.

Carolina Imhof haha. this is good, although apart from breasts and pubic hair, where is smoking, mountain trips, rams and retelling books or movies?

Mark Sheehan This was my 1st Murakami book and I was hooked from the first page. I've been deep into everything he writes. Murakami's a genius!
