As you may know, Haruki Murakami is my favorite Japanese author. I have read several books by him, for instance his latest Killing Commendatore.
So I couldn’t resist when I discovered through Still an Unfinished Person that there was such a thing as a Murakami Online Book Club. They were reading Norwegian Wood, so I joined, as I don’t recall actually reading it.
Here below, I’ll share my review, plus some notes and quotes.
Skip my notes if you haven’t read the book and want to avoid spoilers.
