Finished Norwegian Wood a few months ago. I quite like Murakami, though I am not as much of a fan as my girlfriend.
Quite a tender look back at a love and a life lost. I was fascinated by the nature of the 'sanatorium' the female character had retreated to. Was this helpful? Partly to blame? Is there no-one to blame?
Suicide in Japan is such a problem, I enjoyed reading someone dealing with it fictionally in a sensitive manner.
I like the charters at the centre of Murakami's narratives - they are often gentle and introspective, philosophical about adversity, and interested in life, even though it seems a bit dull at times in his tales.
I think he writes well, and I enjoy a 'visit to japan' every time i open one of his books (I've read about 4).
