Read full description of the books:
Reading it in the original--
I find this much better than Jay Rubin's English translation which is riddled with cliches and clunky phrasing that the original doesn't suffer from. In fact, Murakami's metaphors and similes are quite amazing, and I don't know why but in English they sound okay at best.
Having read this years ago in English, I'm finding subtle threads, hints, and clues I've completely overlooked and am very grateful to see them.
One thing about this story that runs counter to the standard theory of fiction writing is that it's FULL OF FLASHBACKS and BACKSTORY and other mess that's usually urged against.
But the strange thing is they aren't as bad. True, the pace slows down with every side story Murakami indulges in, but each of them SEEMS necessary and interesting, though probably it isn't relevant to the main story line.
Anyways, an awesome read.

Read information about the authorMurakami Haruki (Japanese: 村上 春樹) is a popular contemporary Japanese writer and translator. His work has been described as 'easily accessible, yet profoundly complex'. He can be located on Facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/harukimuraka...
Since childhood, Murakami has been heavily influenced by Western culture, particularly Western music and literature. He grew up reading a range of works by American writers, such as Kurt Vonnegut and Richard Brautigan, and he is often distinguished from other Japanese writers by his Western influences.
Murakami studied drama at Waseda University in Tokyo, where he met his wife, Yoko. His first job was at a record store, which is where one of his main characters, Toru Watanabe in Norwegian Wood, works. Shortly before finishing his studies, Murakami opened the coffeehouse 'Peter Cat' which was a jazz bar in the evening in Kokubunji, Tokyo with his wife.
Many of his novels have themes and titles that invoke classical music, such as the three books making up The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: The Thieving Magpie (after Rossini's opera), Bird as Prophet (after a piano piece by Robert Schumann usually known in English as The Prophet Bird), and The Bird-Catcher (a character in Mozart's opera The Magic Flute). Some of his novels take their titles from songs: Dance, Dance, Dance (after The Dells' song, although it is widely thought it was titled after the Beach Boys tune), Norwegian Wood (after The Beatles' song) and South of the Border, West of the Sun (the first part being the title of a song by Nat King Cole).
