Kafka on the Shore is only my second Murakami book, 1Q84 being the first. I’m thinking I probably should have read this before 1Q84. Then again, if I read this first and didn’t really like it, I might never have read 1Q84 or his other works.
On my fifteenth birthday I’ll run away from home, journey to a far-off town, and live in a corner of a small library.
…I like it already!
The Book In My Bag:
The book that is in my bag for when I have to wait around somewhere is still The Man Who Mistook His Wife for a Hat by Oliver Sacks. A very thin collection of true and strange cases in the field of psychology / neurology. It’s a fascinating read about people with phantom limbs, people who see things that aren’t there, or people who don’t see things that are there, and a lot more.
