Side note: This same friend suffered from acute acrophobia.
He had an intense fear of flying and took a lot of drugs to keep himself calm during flight. His phobia was so bad that when he saw a bridge that ran over a creek that was literally a foot above water, he broke out into a sweat and refused to cross over. He preferred to wade through it. After this encounter in Lebanon, he said he did not need any sedatives during his return flight to New York.
Just as he finished telling me and my co-workers this story, my boyfriend walked into the bar and joined us. It was nice to be able to put things that way and not have to explain myself. I enthusiastically continued my Murakami exploration. The next book I read was Kafka on the Shore. It took me a long time to read because I was losing the ability to focus.
I was also fighting a lot with my boyfriend. He hated seeing me read when I was over because he felt like it took time away from him, and since time was so precious and rare in his line of work medicine , watching me read annoyed him a lot. Honestly, I felt the same way about how my boyfriend was treating our relationship at the time, but I was too young and blindly committed to leave. We went to dinner at Blue Ribbon in Park Slope, ate three hundred dollars worth of food, and fought in the cab on our way back to the apartment over the difference between smoked and regular salmon.
I remember a couple of stories from that book, which I had picked up and read whenever I was alone at his apartment, waiting for him to come home from class or work. There are two that stick out for me: Both the film and story are terrific; they examine the effects of human solitude. They were written over the previous summer while I was vacationing with him in Korea. I immediately left the apartment, flagged down a cab and car-pooled back to my apartment with a crazy white lady who kept trying to have a conversation with me about the weather and the MTA strike while I was busy crying.
It was December, and my anthropology final exam was canceled due to the strike. The cab ride from Flatbush Avenue to Avenue A cost me twenty dollars. That same night, my boyfriend suggested that we meet at the Brooklyn Bridge. When we did, we were surrounded by a crowd of commuters. We talked about our relationship but never came to any satisfying resolution. The next and last book I read by Murakami is After the Quake. I read the whole thing in bed. The only thing I remember from that book is a giant frog fighting a giant worm.
They both end up dead. Over the two-year relationship with my Murakami-fan boyfriend, I was constantly reading books that ran on themes of human isolation and mentally unstable young women, whose conditions often manifested themselves in some sort of sexual incapacity. I often related to the characters by feeling equally hollowed out, depressed and psychotic myself, but obviously not because of societal problems that occur in a Japanese system.
Rather, it had to do with being in a troubled relationship, and the bad feelings were amplified by reading books about the depressed, the maniacal and the clinically insane. It led me to a severe disconnect from reality and into a state of mental isolation.
During my recent weeklong trip to Korea, I met with a friend an English professor and fluent speaker of Japanese who has never read a book by Murakami and we had a huge Sunday brunch at my favorite Tibetan restaurant in Myeong-dong.
I said that he looks like a very lonely man, and my friend agreed. Four years since my last Murakami book, I now see his books being read everywhere by everyone. His books have become a household item like a fork or spatula; they are on bookshelves of every home I visit. Loneliness is a common feeling, and equal to our desire to feel unique.
Loneliness is common, as is craving love and connection, as are relationships, as is Murakami. I think that human isolation and loneliness are plain facts. At this point, writing and reading about them again and again to emphasize their existence seem like a trite effort.
Two summers ago, I sold all my Murakami books at the Strand bookstore and got a dollar in return for each.
While I was there, I did browse the M section force of habit , and I did flip open After Dark , but closed it after the first page and walked away. Thing is, I was over that period in my life.
As Murakami writes in that story about a man and his ex-girlfriend who reunite after many years later just to have sex only to end up not going through with it because that door had closed, I realized that the door back to Murakami and all the feelings I had during the time I was reading him had shut, too. I recently tried to read 'The Elephant Vanishes'.
So glad to know that I'm not really missing out on anything. At first I thought this was going to make me mad because I really love Haruki Murakami and had a period where I could read nothing but Murakami. But I really liked this.
Also, some of your initial reads were ones I wasn't crazy about. I favor 'Norwegian Wood' among the few Murakami books I've read and wanted to read 'Sputnik Sweetheart' for a long time.
Alas, there is no available copy in sight. I think I'm currently on my Murakami phase but for a long time now. I hated 'Kafka', though. I knew there was some sort of theme with his works. Sometimes I'd be too lost in the plot and find the characters just rambling on and on and basically being egotistical. I think I'm having second thought about expanding my Murakami collection, now that you've enlightened some stuff out for me.
People have different reading tastes, no doubt about it. The Dowager introduces Aomame to a year-old girl named Tsubasa. Tsubasa and her parents have been involved with Sakigake.
Tsubasa has been forcefully abused by the cult leader named only as "The Leader". As Tsubasa sleeps in the safe house owned by the Dowager, the "Little People", mentioned in Fuka-Eri's novel, Air Chrysalis , appear from Tsubasa's mouth and create an air chrysalis, a type of cocoon made from strands pulled straight out of the air.
The Dowager had lost her own daughter to domestic abuse and now wants to adopt Tsubasa. However, Tsubasa mysteriously disappears from the safehouse, never to return.
The Dowager researches Sakigake and finds that there is widespread evidence of abuse. In addition to Tsubasa, other prepubescent girls had been sexually abused there. The Dowager asks Aomame to murder the religious head of Sakigake, the Leader, who is reported to have been the abuser.
Aomame meets up with the Leader, who turns out to be a physically enormous person with muscle problems that cause him chronic, severe pain. He reveals that he is the father of Fuka-Eri and has special powers like telekinesis. He is also the one in Sakigake who can hear the religious voices speaking to him.
The Leader, knowing that Aomame was sent to him to kill him, finally strikes a deal with her: After a long conversation with the Leader, Aomame finally kills him and goes into hiding at a prearranged location set up by the Dowager and Tamaru, her bodyguard. Aomame and Tengo's parallel worlds begin to draw closer to each other.
Tengo is pursued by a private investigator, Ushikawa, who was hired by Sakigake. He follows Tengo in order to gather information on Air Chrysalis. Following the Leader's murder, Ushikawa is also ordered by Sakigake to determine the whereabouts of Aomame. The novel now begins to follow Ushikawa, who was once a lawyer who made a good living representing professional criminals. He got into legal trouble and had to abandon his career. His wife and two daughters left him, and ever since he has been working as a private detective.
An ugly man who repels everyone he meets, Ushikawa is also quite intelligent and capable of gathering facts and using logic and deductive reasoning. Ushikawa focuses on Tengo, Aomame, and the Dowager as suspects in his investigation. Since the Dowager's house is guarded well and since Aomame has disappeared without a trace, Ushikawa decides to stake out Tengo's apartment to see if he can find any information related to Aomame.
He rents out a room in Tengo's apartment building and sets up a camera to take pictures of the residents. He witnesses Fuka-Eri, who has been hiding out at Tengo's apartment, coming and going from the building. Fuka-Eri seems to realize Ushikawa's presence, as she leaves a note for Tengo and takes off.
Ushikawa later sees Tengo return home after a visit to see his dying father. Finally, Ushikawa spots Aomame leaving the building after she herself followed Ushikawa there in order to find Tengo.
After Ushikawa spots Aomame, but before he can report this to Sakigake, Tamaru sneaks into Ushikawa's room while he's asleep and interrogates the detective on his knowledge of Tengo and Aomame.
Tamaru finds out that Ushikawa knows too much and is a liability to the safety of Aomame, the Dowager, and himself, and he ends up killing Ushikawa without leaving any marks or indications of how it was done. Tamaru then phones Ushikawa's contact at Sakigake and has them remove the detective's body from the apartment building. Aomame and Tengo eventually find each other via Ushikawa's investigation and with Tamaru's help.
They were once childhood classmates, though they had no relationship outside of a single classroom moment where Aomame tightly grasped Tengo's hand when no other children were around. That moment signified a turning point in both Aomame's and Tengo's lives, and they retained a fundamental love for each other despite all the time that had passed.
After 20 years, Aomame and Tengo meet again, both pursued by Ushikawa and Sakigake. They manage to make it out of the strange world of "1Q84", which has two visible moons, into a new reality that they assume is their original world, though there are small indications that it is not.
The novel ends with them standing in a hotel room, holding hands, looking at the one bright moon in the sky. Among the negative reviews, Time ' s Bryan Walsh found 1Q84 to be the weakest of Murakami's novels in part because it excises his typical first-person narrative.
She had previously picked Murakami's earlier work, Kafka on the Shore , as one of the best 10 novels in From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
