    Oh s***, I haven’t read Men without Women yet but I’m in for any Murakami adaptation.

    I wonder why none of his novels have been adapted yet into tv/movie yet too hard to adapt maybe?

    I've really got to start reading again. The Wind Up Bird Chronicle was one of the first lengthy novels I read on my own and it was during a period of my life that was pretty chaotic

    That book is a work of art. The places it went plus the last 100 pages are something you can't even really describe to another person. Murakami tapped into a type of surrealism that's incredibly affecting and unforgettable

    dune was very slow for me too, I did like it once I finished but it definitely took me a long time to finish.

    that s*** was a masterpiece to me

    What’s your favorite book + which books have you read?

    What’s your favorite book + which books have you read?

    Wind up and Kafka are my favorite. Just started reading 1Q84 and Strange Library is a fun read. Really want to pick up First person soon but will wait till I finish 1Q84. Took a long break from fiction and just starting to get back into it. I read Wind Up after a pretty gnarly break up and can confidently say it pulled me out of a pretty gnarly place.

    sounds like you're ready for his magnum opus 1Q84

    check out his latest novel Killing Commendatore too. I thought it was very good and underrated

    listened to a read through of one of his short stories called 'UFO in Kushiro' that was featured in the New Yorker about a 20 years ago and then was later featured in his 'After The Quake' novel. enjoyed it a lot. definitely have to check out his short story collections as I go through his bibliography
