    I can t really justify my love of Murakami As far as I m concerned, he writes novels specifically for me to read them It would probably save us both a lot of time and trouble if he d skip the publishing process and just slip his finished manuscripts under my door So I m biased, you could say.In short this is early ish Murakami If you dig it you ll dig it, if not you won t I dig it.Just make sure you ve read his Trilogy of the Rat before reading this Seriously It s important Or at th I can t really justify my love of Murakami As far as I m concerned, he writes novels specifically for me to read them It would probably save us both a lot of time and trouble if he d skip the publishing process and just slip his finished manuscripts under my door So I m biased, you could say.In short this is early ish Murakami If you dig it you ll dig it, if not you won t I dig it.Just make sure you ve read his Trilogy of the Rat before reading this Seriously It s important Or at the very LEAST make sure you ve read A Wild Sheep Chase I realize the first two in the trilogy are near impossible to find unless you know someone in Japan or have a lot of money to throw around , but it makes all the difference in the world

    I have finally read a Murakami I picked this up on a market stall and didn t realise it was part of a series until I listed it on GR and saw The Rat, 4 , but it works as a standalone story, albeit an intriguingly odd one In conjures exciting unease and bafflement It is a book of paradoxes and uncertainty, leaving me satisfied with being left, in some ways, unsatisfied What sort of story Genre labels can be useful, but can also be an irrelevant distraction However, with this book, I found I have finally read a Murakami I picked this up on a market stall and didn t realise it was part of a series until I listed it on GR and saw The Rat, 4 , but it works as a standalone story, albeit an intriguingly odd one In conjures exciting unease and bafflement It is a book of paradoxes and uncertainty, leaving me satisfied with being left, in some ways, unsatisfied What sort of story Genre labels can be useful, but can also be an irrelevant distraction However, with this book, I found myself repeatedly wondering what type of story it was By the end, I was still unsure, but glad of the tension caused by doubt.At various times, this was magical realism, murder mystery, sci fi, political thriller, romance not too much, thankfully , Kafkaesque, premature mid life crisis story, surrealist, spiritual allegory, horror ghost story, hints of Lolita, and the narrator likens a high tech hotel to something out of Star Wars It might have been easier to consider what it was not Quirk of the 80sIt s a strange time to read a book like this it was published, and apparently set, in 1988, which is recent enough that it feelsor less contemporary However, that was just before Google, laptops, mobile phones etc, which means the protagonists do not have the opportunities one now takes for granted Set it now, and the plot would need tweaking, but in 50 years, it will be historical enough for no one to notice Reading it now, gave it an intriguing edge that added to the general sense of shifting reality.Connectedness and un realityConnectedness is the clearest theme of the book and one that links it to David Mitchell, a known fan of Murakami, especially Ghostwritten and Cloud Atlas There is perhaps unintended or prescient irony in the fact that a novel that is all about connectness was written and set just before the world became dramaticallyconnected.Ambiguity about what is real is the other thread we assume the narrator is reliable he s a journalist , but there are visions of various kinds, films, vague memories, a bit of mind reading What is real, and what is not As things get really weird, the narrator asks, was the sickness in here or out there Plot and MeaningThe unnamed narrator is a divorced man in his mid 30s a freelance journalist, mostly writing restaurant reviews a job he describes as Shovelling snow You know, cultural snow It opens with him talking about The Dolphin Hotel, and how he often dreams of it after a previous girlfriend, Kiki, took him there, then disappeared It was a strange place The Dolphin Hotel was conceptually sorry Normalness it lacked Its corners caked with unfulfilled dreams Four years on, he feels as if she s calling him to return, so he does In its place, he finds the swish new Hotel Dauphin.Dabbling in his past brings him into contact with Gotunda, a high school class mate, who is now a successful but unfulfilled, divorced and working to pay debts and alimony actor They become close friends, which they hadn t been at school Other key characters are Yumiyoshi, a pretty hotel receptionist, and Yuki, a bright thirteen year old rich drop out, largely ignored by her divorced parents Characters, plot lines and reality twist and tangle, aided by dream like visions, a portal to another dimension of reality, and a character with mild psychic abilities The title relates to an instruction given to the narrator quite early and that seems as if it will be the key to everything, or at least something, but nothing really comes of itdetails in spoiler.All the way through, and especially towards the end, the narrator is musing on fate and destiny, and looking for meaning in all this as is the reader It never really comes, but I think that s rather the point Had Murakami tied it all together with some ghastly homily, I think it would have ruined the book After all, a recurring line is What was that all about , uttered by Kiki in a much watched film Indetail view spoiler Yumi and then the narrator accidentally and separately find themselves in a parallel world, in the Old Dolphin Hotel, where they meet the old owner, who the narrator nicknames Sheep Man because of all the pictures and books about sheep He resisted selling up, and only gave in on condition the new hotel retained the name He tells the narrator Thisisyourplace It sthenkot It stiedtoeverything Thisisyourworld and that he Sheep Man works hard Tokeepthings fromfalllingapart Tokeepyoufromforgetting He stresses, Yougottadance Aslongasthemusicplays It is not the place of the dead, and it is real, Butit snottheonlyreality As well as being drawn to Kiki and wondering what happened to her, he fancies Yumi He also discovers that Kiki had a bit part in a film of Gotunda s Unrequited Love , that the narrator watches obsessively because Gotunda was a client and Kiki was one of the call girls at a secretive and very high end agency Through Yumi, the narrator gets to know Yuki, whose flighty photographer mother had left behind at the hotel to travel abroad He took back to her home in Tokyo and keeps a mostly paternal eye on her Their relationship ought to be creepy, especially when he comments how pretty she is, but it s actually rather sweet and innocent Even her parents think so, as they each separately get him to takecharge of her.Yuki has also seen Sheep Man, though by some sort of mental connection to the narrator, rather than going through the portal Gotunda calls the agency to get a couple of girls for him and the narrator The latter has Mei, who he quizzes about the missing Kiki, but she knows nothing useful A few days later, he is arrested for her murder and interrogated in a most unorthodox way, slightly reminiscent of Kafka s The Trial, which he had been reading the night before He denies ever having met her, not wanting to tarnish Gotunda s reputation Yuki s rich father Makimura pulls strings to get the narrator released from interrogation and suggests he takes Yuki to visit her mother Am , currently in Hawaii with her new partner Dick.In one dip to the other world, Kiki shows the narrator a room with six skeletons, one of which has a single arm Later, when a one armed man he knows dies, he realises they represent people close to him who have died, and fears for the lives of Gotunda, Yuki and Yumi Another death seems to confirm his theory, though we never know who the sixth is maybe the narrator himself.While in Hawaii, another prostitute turns up June , sent from the same agency, but by Makimura However, when Gotunda later enquires about her, he s told she d disappeared three months earlier.Yuki gets spookily sick when they borrow Gotunda s Maserati, and when she sees him and Kiki in the film, is so unwell, she has to leave the cinema view spoiler She says that the actor Gotunda killed the actress Kiki in real life and that she saw it Later, when the narrator asks Gotunda if he killed Kiki or Mei, Gotunda is unsure about Kiki he s not certain which reality it might have been in , but says he did kill Mei because she asked him to yet the narrator overlooks this and plans a trip together hide spoiler.More visions,possible deaths,crossings over and shadows, finally get round to visiting Yumi again, and realityblurred than ever The end hide spoiler QuotesSurprisingly few, for me Financial dealings have practically become a religious activity You can now enjoy hybrid styles of morality You leave things to an interior designer and it ends up looking like this Something you want to photograph, not live in Reality receded until you can t tell who s sane and who not Am didn t give anything She only took She consumed those around her to sustain herself Her talent was manifested in a powerful gravitational pull The passage of time wasn t a practical component in her life Her ears had special power They were like some great whirlpool of fate sucking me in

    I fall in love with every girl I see Every girl I meet It s true I fall in love a hundred times in a week It s always been like that So very easy to look at these girls and their legs and their teeth while they ride the bus with me, while they shop for groceries next to me, while they wait in line at the bank in front of me Because I don t have to really connect to them then I don t have to really see the nakedness and the scars and the tan lines and the pimples under the makeup I don t I fall in love with every girl I see Every girl I meet It s true I fall in love a hundred times in a week It s always been like that So very easy to look at these girls and their legs and their teeth while they ride the bus with me, while they shop for groceries next to me, while they wait in line at the bank in front of me Because I don t have to really connect to them then I don t have to really see the nakedness and the scars and the tan lines and the pimples under the makeup I don t have to k ow how old they really are or if they were abused by other lovers I don t have to take the time to get to know them I just make it all up in my head Funny how I always have them break my heart, then, in the end I never write a happy ending Don t get me wrong, I have loved truly and deeply many many times before on very real levels But those are very far between all the other fantasies, all the dream girls, running through my waking days That s the way I feel about Murakami, though That most of these other books and authors are those girls I meet in passing or at parties, the ones who really aren t real But that Murakami is so real, so devilishly real that he breaks my heart in ways I never knew it could be Finds fault lines I didn t know were there And that he lingers in the mind long after he s gone, unlike the fleeting legs and teeth of bus stop romances Listen This is how an existentialist writes a metaphysical pulp fiction And it s really good My only problem, which seems to be a hallmark of modern Japanese literature, is that at times it feels tedious and that tedium made me feel tired But slogging through that, you come out into a bright an beautiful book that will sneak up on you You ll be thinking about it for days after, while you re trying to read other books Getting lost in that feeling of a great love that came to an end
