So many questions left unanswered... yet the dawn of the next day at the end of the book kind of symbolizes a new beginning, and all the strange events that happened in the night are forgotten.

I read Dance, dance, dance first, and i absolutely loved it.
Although, i didnt know it was a sequel to a wildsheep chase, but it didn't really make a difference.

YAY. Revival of a lost thread
Since my last visit on this thread. I blew major money on nearly all of his books

My collection now includes:

dance dance dance
The wild sheep chase
Norwegian wood
Blind willow sleeping woman
Kafka on the shore
After dark
Underground-true stories-

Norwegian wood and dance dance dance has got to be my favourites. It's so weird its good haha

I'm a major major fan and totally converted my family into fans as well, My aunt and my brother also read them =)

Shall take a photograph of them next time.

the only book i have read by Haruki Murakami was After Dark even though it was translated it was a really good book and i even managed to get myself lost in to the story so when i read After Dark before class people had to call on me three times before they got my response.

The Story was great and i also want to buy more of his books lucklily i saw a combined book whit some of his other stories in the local book store hopefully no ones bought it yet? ''~_~''!!!


Are you nice to people they usually are nice back
