I made it 400 pages. It was hard. So very hard. I like Murakami's writing. I'm a fan of simplicity and he makes some amusing observations. The story is just so boring and nonsensical.

Also, what is up with this dude and sex? Is he extremely frustrate...more
Erin Quinney is on page 200 of 607 of The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: There is so much I like about this book but there's a lot I don't like, too. I don't know which is going to win out.

Ray Bradbury
“It takes writing a billion bad words before you get to the good ones.”
Ray Bradbury

John Steinbeck
“We all have that heritage, no matter what old land our fathers left. All colors and blends of Americans have somewhat the same tendencies. It's a breed - selected out by accident. And so we're overbrave and overfearful - we're kind and cruel as children. We're overfriendly and at the same time frightened of strangers. We boast and are impressed. We're oversentimental and realistic. We are mundane and materialistic - and do you know of any other nation that acts for ideals? We eat too much. We have no taste, no sense of proportion. We throw our energy about like waste. In the old lands they say of us that we go from barbarism to decadence without an intervening culture. Can it be that our critics have not the key or the language of our culture.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden

Mark Twain
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.”
Mark Twain

Ayn Rand
“A government is the most dangerous threat to man's rights: it holds a legal monopoly on the use of physical force against legally disarmed victims.”
Ayn Rand

John Steinbeck
“But the Hebrew word, the word timshel—‘Thou mayest’— that gives a choice. It might be the most important word in the world. That says the way is open. That throws it right back on a man. For if ‘Thou mayest’—it is also true that ‘Thou mayest not.”
John Steinbeck, East of Eden
