In I m just like whatever So whatever I give up This book has received praise rom many circles including the New York Times the Washington Post and the Los Angeles Times Wind Up Bird was also considered a New York Times Notable Book the year it was published and it earned Murakami the author a serious literary award presented by the Japanese Nobel Prize winning author Kenzaburo Oe To top it off most of the reviews on Goodreads are illed to bursting with lavish praise خلقیات ما ایرانیان for both Murakami and The Wind Up Bird Chronicle But less than a third of the way through I couldn t shake theeeling that this book was just a waste of time I kept reminding myself that I can be a harsh critic and I have been known to initially dismiss a truly great book simply because the author s style or the novel s theme was initially The Avril LaVigne Handbook - Everything You Need to Know about Avril LaVigne frustrating this has happened numerous times with novels like The Crying of Lot 49 A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man The Stranger and Absalom Absalom Now that I haveinished the last page of Wind Up Bird I believe calling this novel a waste of time would be a complimentI A Fatal Debt: A Novel forced myself to continue reading Wind Up Bird by telling myself that a highly respected author like Murakami would eventually tie up all the loose ends When it became obvious that these ends would remain loose I told myself he was creating a commentary on the nature of story telling something like how all narrators are unreliable or maybe purposefully writing a dense impenetrable tome to reflect the popular postmodern world view I eventually started blaming the translator because I couldn t imagine an author with as much recognition as Murakami writing such boring passages with such awkward prose But I couldn t shake theeeling that something was wrong At one point I put down the book shook my head got a glass of water did some research on both the novel and the author took a nap woke up shook my head again The White Ballets forced myself to pick up the book read three chapters and suddenly realized that Wind Up Bird was just a poorly written novel and I was making excuses because I was dazzled by all the praise on the cover There is a certain amount of wiggle room when it comes to writing a novel but there are aew rules that should always be observed 1 show don t tell 2 don t write down to your audience 3 avoid clich s and mostly importantly 4 establish a theme or message the novel must convey In Wind Up Bird Murakami shamelessly broke each of these rules He simultaneously broke the irst two rules by constantly adding explanations and observations that ruined any amount of mystery or subtlety that might have existed in this pseudo detective story effectively communicating to the audience I don t trust you to read this novel correctly so I m going to ully explain each situation and character in detail so you can t possibly misunderstand me While Wind Up Bird didn t employ traditional clich s the constant introduction of psychic characters who simply know things because they were supposed to know became trite and suggested laziness of the author Also while half the characters were unctionally omniscient the other half did things without knowing why claiming they were compelled by some uncontrollable unknowable urge or orce that often leaves them empty or numb of all The Portable Guidance Counselor: Answers to the 284 Most Important Questions About Getting Into College feeling literally this happens with half of the characters in the novel But Murakami s most heinous crime is writing a 600 page novel that isunctionally meaningless An author can get away with a lot if ultimately the theme or message of the novel is intact Try as I MIGHT I CAN T FIND might I can t Living with a Dead Language: My Romance with Latin find message Murakami was trying to express through The Wind Up Bird Chronicle Murakami did include a character that thoughtfully reflects on war crimes in World War II but even this subplot was unfocused and by the end of the novel this story within the storyizzles and suddenly ends without reaching a climax I toyed around with the possibility that Murakami was writing a novel with a message about how novels don t need a theme or a message but even if it that was Murakami s intention it wouldn t justify nor could it be justified by such a clunky awkward ugly novelAlso this is a REALLY weird book I have read Gravity s Rainbow Ulysses Slaughterhouse Five The Bald Soprano Naked Lunch and The Third Policeman but somehow The Wind Up Bird Chronicle is the most bizarre inexplicable piece of literature I have ever come across At one point I considered giving up on decyphering the plot and just enjoy watching the strange parade of reaks and monsters in the novel But instead of making Wind Up Bird ascinating the weird characters and situations come across as ham isted almost desperate additons to the book as the weirdness is employed primarily as deus ex machina Whenever the protagonist didn t know what to do next which happened constantly a psychic would suddenly
AND INEXPLICABLY APPEAR TO TELL HIM 
inexplicably appear to tell him next step and whenever the action began to slow down the author would include a surreal dream or grotesue murder This isn t a weird book that has un upsetting conventions and Design the Life You Love: A Guide to Thinking About Your Life Playfully and with Optimism flirting with the bizarre this is a book that employs weirdness to compensateor the author s inability to keep control of his own novel Despite my best efforts to Shortcut: How Analogies Reveal Connections, Spark Innovation, and Sell Our Greatest Ideas find something worthwhile between its covers The Wind Up Bird Chronicle offers practically nothing to back up the incredible amount of praise it has received Easily one of the worst things I have ever read I absolutely adored the book upon starting out It is exuisitely crafted with each seemingly casual word chosen to illustrate the world into which we have entered It is a lonely worldull of half inished stories abrupt departures missed connections and deep silences Poor Mr Wind Up Bird lives on an alley with no exits in a borrowed life that he could never afford to live without the kindness of his uncle He s just uit his job as he has no idea of where to go with his life but is dissatisfied with its current course He lives with. Uotidiano diviene il teatro di una ricerca in cui sogni ricordi e realtà si confondono. ,
De Murakami s best novel I m a big an of Haruki Murakami When you pick up one of his novels you re never completely sure where you ll end up This is definitely true of the Wind Up Bird Chronicle It starts as sort of a detective story in which Toru Okada searches Share, Retweet, Repeat: Get Your Message Read and Spread for his wife s missing cat in their Tokyo suburb After that it s really difficult to say what the book is about Did the searchor the cat trigger all the craziness that swirls around Toru or had everything already been set in motion And if Toru s descent into darkness had already been set in motion had it begun with the Japanese invasion of Manchuria a secret Minimalist Baker's Everyday Cooking: 101 Entirely Plant-based, Mostly Gluten-Free, Easy and Delicious Recipes from his wife s childhood or was there something recent which was responsible There is no way at leastor me to igure out cause and effect but maybe that s what it elt like or Toru He saw no way to separate out the weirdness which he d allowed into his life The Wind Up Bird Chronicle is a long book ull of crazy characters and crazy digressions As a reader you She Weeps Each Time You're Born feel like you ve been thrown into the well with Toru oror some unknown reason voluntarily placed yourself there and whether or not you can make sense of any of it Murakami invites you to share Toru s experience Wonderfully written and engaging book 45 stars rounded up I had been wondering where my cat was when the phone rang It was a woman offering to have no strings sex with me I made some non committal remarks to her and put the receiver down I hate those cold callers I had nothing to do that day or any other day so I walked down the back alley and ell into a desultory conversation with a random 16 year old girl who had a wooden leg and a parrot on her shoulder She suggested I help her make some easy money by counting bald people That sounded about as good as anything else to me after all as I have already explained i had nothing to do At all And I was doing it It was kind of a cool period in my life when i wasn t really doing anything I didn t have a job I had become estranged rom my Seven Days, Seven Dinners family andor some reason I could not uite put my A Northern Light finger on i had noriends So we counted the bald people If You're Missing Baby Jesus: A True Story that Embraces the Spirit of Christmas for a while and then we stopped We went back home or should i say she went back to her home and I of course went back to mine where I prepared a simple evening meal consisting of grated cucumber a little olive oil half a smoked mackerel and a pot of basil I didn t put the tv on because I didn t have a tv because if i had had a tv i might have switched it on and seen something on it that was actually interesting Then the cold calling sex woman rang again and this time she said that she couldn t uite tell me how she knew this but she knew something was going to happen to me but she did not say when it would I decided to rehang the curtains in theront room But not right away Maybe later I picked up the novel I was reading It was a long one by a very modish Japanese writer called Haruki Murakami It was about this English guy called Paul Bryant He was kind of dull but all these weird unexplained things kept happening like he was a magnet or all the weirdness around I don t know how to explain kept happening like he was a magnet or all the weirdness around I don t know how to explain Neither did he Neither did Haruki Marukami I read Anne Perrys Christmas Crimes (Christmas Stories, for an hour andound I was on page 303 which in my paperback edition was the exact centre point of the novel I put it down I had a eeling that in this novel things would continue to happen but the things would all be made of blancmange a tasteless gooey substance which looks a little like wallpaper paste but isn t And the People In The Novel Would All Be in the novel would all be really real but also not really not real if you know what I mean My arm elt slightly tired holding the book I shifted to a different reading posture on my couch but it did not help The strength went out of my arm I do not know why As you may have noticed I do not know anything at all I struggle to recall my name on most days The novel White Water fellrom my hand I had the The Slave Dancer feeling I would never pick it up again I did not know why I had thateeling but I was pretty sure that I had it at the time I was having it Although later I was almost sure I had no memory of it When I looked up a completely naked woman was sitting at the table eating a slice of thinly buttered toast I asked her who she was and she said she was not at that point in a position to be able to divulge that information She asked if she could borrow my car I explained it had been taken by my wife who had left me two weeks ago This did not seem to phase her I noticed that her body was almost the left me two weeks ago This did not seem to phase her I noticed that her body was almost the as that of my wife She had two breasts two nipples and although the table was obscuring the lower parts of her anatomy I was sure that the rest of her was also not dissimilar She consumed three pieces of toast and told me in a cool voice that I would never see my cat again except possibly in a place that began with the letter H or has a H in the name somewhere She borrowed my wife s smart summer coat and a pair of her stilettos and left after about 15 minutes It began to rain but I did not notice I thought about paying my electricity bill Y know what I give up I m never going to Special Agent finish this I don t think Murakami s a hack and I know that everybody except me thinks he s a genius and I also understand or specifically have had it angrily explained to me that my dislikeor Murakami has to do with me being an American asshole who can t see through her own cultural imperialism enough to appreciate the way Japanese people like Murakami write novels I acknowledge all these thingsBut at the same time nothing about this works Sleep with the Fishes for me I m not excited about a bland everyman I m not interested in an atmosphere where literally anything could happen but mostly what does is that people say vague things to him I m not sucked in by the occasionally exposited backstory I know I should be able to go along with the vague sense of unease but it just doesn t do anythingor me I mean probably it s a very culturally Japanese sort of unease that doesn t speak to me but 200 pages. Vita di un giovane disoccupato in un turbine di avventure E lo spazio limitato del suo. WATER IS GOOD You the politician with the psychopath eyes on the TV I hate you Russian scheming Where the The Apache Wars: The Hunt for Geronimo, the Apache Kid, and the Captive Boy Who Started theLongest War in American History fuck is my cat And why did I name him after you Mr Psychopath EYES WarBloodDeath Zoo anima English The Wind Up Bird Chronicle ItalianoA great experienceMore than reading a novel Ieel like I ve lived the life of another like when you wake up rom a dream in which you played the part of a earless hero doing actions you never could have doneToru Okada is thirty years old and leads an ordinary life with his wife Kumiko However a strange phone call marks the beginning of a series of unusual events that entirely change the existence of the young protagonist Everyday life and the Toru Okada recently uit his job at the law office and has been spending his time alone in the house all day while his wife Kumiko goes to work One day while cooking he receives a strange phone call A World on Fire from a women claiming to know him He can t recognize her voice though and becomes confused by this turn of events Kumiko is worried because recently their cat disappeared Usually their cat comes home after a while even though he wanders off and so Toru goes off in search of the cat On his search he meets and befriend the neighbor girl May Kasahara who is staying homerom school after getting into an accident May and Toru spend time together watching and waiting to see if the cat will come home Things take an even weirder turn when Kumiko tells her husband to consult with Malta Kano who helps people and Kumiko knows through her brother Noboru Wataya Toru hates Noboru Wataya and is confused by this turn in events even so when Kumiko doesn t seem to come home one night leading him to set out to search Setting Them Straight: You CAN Do Something About Bigotry and Homophobia in Your Life for her and get caught in a complex web all pertaining to Noboru WatayaThis was myirst Haruki Murakami book and I really enjoyed it it s definitely a new avorite I tend to enjoy magical realism a lot and I loved the writing and the characters and the themes that were explored in the book I really enjoyed May and her obsession with death and her struggling to understand it and I enjoyed so much of the ideas that came up about relationships I also just love mysticism and books that are on the ideological side I think it was incorporated really well with the plot and the way things came up through out the book elt so natural which is hard to do in my opinion The writing was also really great and I loved the repetition and the way so many things in the book would occur again and again I can t explain why it appealed to me so much but it just did I also loved the way things tied up together I love when story lines work together interlocking webs of events and ideas The only thing I may be some what iffy on is the ending only because it 100 ways to Fight the Flab - and still have wine and chocolate felt abrupt in comparison to the rest of the book Also things weren t really clear and I don t think we receive a good explanationor what was actually happening Which may have been the point but I m not smart enough to igure out why he may have done that if anyone
