Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami

Norwegian Wood - Jay Rubin, Haruki Murakami


Lovely, strange, Beautiful and Painful, Sad love story.
i was really confused as to whether I should rate this book 4 or 5 !
reason was that i really didn't like the ending ! but still I could not bring myself to give anything less than 5 either! for i loved the story.
I actually listened to ‘Norwegian wood’ song by Beatles once it was mentioned in the book and i was listening to it whenever i was reading it. it was a great.

All the characters were amazing , for their strange gentleness and imperfection.
Toru Watanabe, Naoko, Reiko, Midori, Nagasawa and Hatsumi, i fell in love with each one of them, they seemed so real to me.

The writing was absolutely gorgeous.
this was my first Murakami reading , an excellent introduction to his work. i'll absolutely read his other novels.
