Ction by the author 'If you’re the sort of guy who raids the refrigerators of silent kitchens at three o’ FOR AMUSEMENT ONLY Extra Ball at 600000 pointsFREE PLAY3 BALLS PER GAMEMy first exposure to Murakami was in my early college years I checked out A Wild Sheep Chase Boku 3 one summer from a military library and after I read it but before I returned it the library had mysteriously burned down I m not sure if I still owe the library a late fee or not I had no way to return the book and after reading it I didn t ever want to I saved it from the fire I saved it from oblivion It was now mineBoth Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball 1973 are novellas best left to Murakami completists There are better novels to start with and unless you are going to read than ten Murakami novels I wouldn t begin here Start with Wild Sheep Chase Wind Up Bird Chronicle Dance Dance Dance or Norwegian Wood Hear the Wind SingBoku 1 How can those who live in the light of day possibly comprehend the depth of night NietzcheA nice first novella with most all the known Murakami tropes already stirred in There is music pop jazz classical with specific references to actual pressings There are cats bars whiskey birds alienation and needy women Murakami ventures into existential philosophy and Western literature both real and fake It is all there Things that would later pop up again and again in his later stronger novels It isn t a river that flows very fast This isn t a page turner It is Gyokuro tea steeping slowly It is watching the stray leaves spiral to the center in a cracked stoneware cup It is the light and shadows dancing on you while you sit in the shade watching people walk in and out of view It is relaxing interesting and soon all you have left is the tasseography of a cold cup Pinball 1973Boku 2 So many dreams so many disappointments so many promises And in the end they all just vanish Haruki Murakami Pinball 1973Like Murakami s first novel Hear the Wind Sing Boku 1 Pinball 1973 Boku 2 contains many of those elements that would define Murakami s fiction in the future In someways this novel is both a story of loneliness and a love story between the protagonist and a specific Pinball machine Hear the Wind Sing seems to show early signs of Norwegian Wood but Pinball 1973 seems to be an early protonovel that would develop into Murakami s strange dream like later novels If you check out Murakami and the bookstore or library burns down watch out you won t be able to rest until you ve stalked every novel and read every page

Clock in the morning you can only write accordingly That’s who I am' Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball 1973 ar WindPinball collects Haruki Murakami s first two novels Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball 1973 I give Wind 3 stars and Pinball 2 stars so I guess technically it s a 25 stars but neither book was that impressive so I rounded down to 2 stars it s really only for Murakami fans I reviewed each book individually below enjoyHear the Wind Sing 3 starsHaruki Murakami s first novel Hear the Wind Sing is like a lot of first novels in that it s unfocused rambling and mostly about the author and yet it s kinda compelling because of how well written it is There s no story to speak of The novel takes place within 3 weeks of the summer of 1970 where our nameless narrator in his early 20s bums around his small town He meets a wealthy spoilt brat called The Rat who sits in a bar reads Western novels and spouts pseudo intellectual nonsense He meets a young woman with nine fingers who works in a record shop The characters interact a sense of youthful directionless and vague hope sorta permeates the book and then it s over I ve read 11 of Murakami s books before this one and I definitely wouldn t recommend readers curious about the author to start here begin with Wind Up Bird Wild Sheep Chase or one of his short story collections like after the uake instead But if you re familiar with the author you ll notice a lot of things in this first novel that he ll go on to feature in many of his subseuent books Music especially jazz cats precise descriptions of meals emotionally detached people bookworms sad relationships with sad women loneliness and physically deformed characters None of the characters here could be called well rounded they re very one dimensional especially the female characters Murakami usually writes women uite poorly More often than not they re there as literary devices for the male characters to either learn something about the story they re in or to learn something about themselves it s the latter in this book However if the narrative leaves a lot to be desired the writing is at least very fluid accessible and renders the spare story with an ethereal elegance The pages fly by and that s a rare uality in a first novel Besides the overall lack of characterisation the writing annoyed me only a couple of times like when one character launches into a pages long speech about nothing Murakami failing to pass this off as casual conversation and the parts where a radio DJ rambles on the air were entirely needless The book definitely feels too slight it s a good example of style over substance though I can t help but admire the stylishness For a novel with no story great characters or memorable scenes or dialogue I didn t dislike Hear the Wind Sing The writing is much better than you d expect for a first novel and pulled me swiftly along to the end the talent is obvious and you can see the writer he ll become That said I d say it s really only for fans than casual readers with this book Murakami s clearly finding his voice and figuring out what he wants to write about which isn t always the best place for anyone to start Unfamiliar readers wanting to understand Murakami s popularity would do better to check out his later original and enthralling efforts when he incorporates magical realism into actual stories that go somewhere Pinball 1973 2 starsHaruki Murakami tends to write two kinds of novel ones with a story and ones without Pinball 1973 is unfortunately the latter A translator with twin live in girlfriends I know just humour the author s sad wish fulfilment fantasy develops an obsession with pinball specifically a pinball machine called Spaceship One day his machine disappears He half heartedly goes looking for it zzz This is part of Murakami s Rat series where a character called The Rat appears It s even underwhelming than it sounds The Rat is just a moody barfly who drinks beer and doesn t do much else I really don t know why Murakami kept putting him in books as a recurring character given how dull he was It s not even clear why he s called The Rat unless it s a description of his general uselessness The Rat chapters read like the worst kind of pretentious arthouse movie scenes he drinks he smokes he says inane drivel that I guess is intended to be profound wisdom and I have no idea what his inclusion added to the novel far as I can tell it s nothing There are bits and pieces of the book that are intermittently interesting like the section on the country well digger the history of the pinball manufacturer and the twins who were just strange as they didn t seem real And the book overall is as clearly written as most of Murakami s work is This being Murakami s second novel readers familiar with his later much better books will recognise here what will become trademarks of his storytelling style cats wells jazz The Beatles the book closes with the protagonist playing Rubber Soul the second track of which Norwegian Wood would become the title of his breakthrough novel His female characters though remain as one dimensional as ever Besides a minor character at the start none of the female characters are named the interpreter s colleague is simply referred to as the girl as is the college girl in his flashback while the twins are numbers 208 and 209 I ve tried deciphering it but I m completely clueless as to what this one was supposed to be about The narrator talks about meeting people from Saturn and Venus at the start the pinball machine is called Spaceship so Is the pinball machine meant to symbolise something like a lost love is that what that hallucinatory seuence at the end was about No real point is established and the book just stops so it s fairly unsatisfying What I ll charitably call the story as a whole was a bit too obtuse for me and could ve been focused It wasn t a total bust but Pinball 1973 is definitely one of Haruki Murakami s lesser novels fans only For those who d like to start reading Murakami I recommend checking out A Wild Sheep Chase or The Strange Library instead After the Flood place within 3 weeks of the

Haruki Murakami ☆ 0 REVIEW

Haruki Murakami’s first two novels available for the first time in English outside Japan With a new introdu These are Murakami s earliest novels novellas really as each is only about 100 pages Both are about the same two young men an unnamed narrator and his friend and former roommate The Rat Actually there is a third Rat book but for some reason it is not included with these two I ve not read the later longer novels but supposedly these two shorts are preuels to Murakami s other novels A Wild Sheep Chase and Dance Dance DanceThey are about anomie and loneliness of youth as these two young men early 20 s struggle to find meaning and a role in life Both have girlfriends the narrator is living with two identical twins but there is no real love Their lives are lonely and aimless as they wander around ambitionless smoking and drinking A Chinese bartender plays a role in both stories In their attitudes the two young men are very much alike These is nothing dramatic or spellbinding about the plots in fact they remind me a bit of what has been said about the American TV series Seinfeld being about nothing Yet Murakami s style grabs you and holds your attention I ll write about Pinball as it has of a traditional plot structure The narrator and a friend have started a freelance translation service from English and French into Japanese The narrator becomes obsessed with an early pinball game He gives us a bit about the history of pinball and early inventors When the arcade is demolished the specific machine he liked best disappears and he contacts another obsessive pinball player to track down the old machine Meanwhile he lives with the twins and tells us about his memories of the Japanese student movement and of a former girlfriend who hanged herself Wells are mentioned and also a cat but not as much as in some of his later novels Also western especially American cultural icons are featured including liuors music and television shows And as is often the case in Murakami s stories there is a surreal or even science fiction aspect to the story as he writes about some people being from other planets still adapting to earth s environment Here s a passage that I thought illustrated Murakami s writing style The Rat could see that she his girlfriend was trying to establish a kind of perfection in her small world He was well aware that reuired an extraordinary degree of determination She wore only the most modest yet tasteful dresses over fresh clean undergarments applied an eau de cologne with the fragrance of a morning vineyard to her body took great care in choosing her words asked no pointless uestions and appeared to have practiced smiling in the mirror Yet these things only added to the Rat s sadness The book begins with an essay by Murakami in which he tells us how he began writing because he was hit by a lightning bolt at a baseball game Hey I can write a novel And he discusses how his first drafts were flat so he wrote in English in which he was not at all proficient at the time and then translated the text back to Japanese During this time he and his wife were working endless hours in a barnightclub that they started Good stories that held my attention Top photo from pinrescuecomThe author from radicalreadscom
