'Strange Weather in Tokyo' was a easy read and I did enjoy it but at times I felt it rambled on. The relationship between Tsukiko and 'Sensei' was nice to read, two lonely people finding each other at a time in their lives when they need someone.

Clive Barker
“Nothing ever begins.
There is no first moment; no single word or place from which this or any story springs.
The threads can always be traced back to some earlier tale, and the tales that preceded that; though as the narrator's voice recedes the connections will seem to grow more tenuous, for each age will want the tale told as if it were of its own making.”
Clive Barker, Weaveworld

Haruki Murakami
“Don't feel sorry for yourself. Only assholes do that.”
Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood

Thomas Berger
“It was strange how in no time at all everybody went from fear to being excruciatingly bored, and the very women who yesterday had been helpless victims and just minutes earlier were howling in fright, now began to advance on him threatening with their fists and saying: 'Git on out of here, you old skunk!' Which shows something about the way a female is put together; she will suffer any outrage so long as it is interesting, but bore her and she don't know fear.”
Thomas Berger, Little Big Man

Haruki Murakami
“In a place far away from anyone or anywhere, I drifted off for a moment.”
Haruki Murakami, The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
