Page Turner: Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

I Heart Watanabe [Goodreads]
I have been pretty fascinated with the works of Haruki Murakami ever since I saw my sister, jamypye reading Sputnik Sweetheart (have you finished it, Pam?). The covers were pretty (I'm shallow, okay?!) and lusimeles seems to really enjoy them so I bought three of his books and set them aside. Then I saw that Rinko Kikuchi would be starring in the film adaptation of the book and it pushed it up on the list of books to read.

I didn't know what to expect when starting Murakami. On my first day though, I breezed through 100 pages. This is a good sign. By the end of the week, I finished the book and caught the film on a Sunday. Not a bad way to spend the week. Collapse )
