This book was discussed yesterday. It raised a lot of questions about spirits, past, present, Oedipus complex.. It was an interesting discussion, and most of us liked the book. Some would like to read another Murakami, others felt he has nothing much more to say.

“Memories warm you up from the inside. But they also tear you apart.”

“If you remember me, then I don't care if everyone else forgets.”

“It's like Tolstoy said. Happiness is an allegory, unhappiness a story.”

“Taking crazy things seriously is a serious waste of time.”

“Listen up - there's no war that will end all wars.”

“Chance encounters are what keep us going.”

“Silence, I discover, is something you can actually hear.”

“Every one of us is losing something precious to us. Lost opportunities, lost possibilities, feelings we can never get back again. That’s part of what it means to be alive.”

“A certain type of perfection can only be realized through a limitless accumulation of the imperfect.”

― Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
