Haruki Murakami - a wild sheep chase?

Stack of Murakami books


My first foray into Huraki Murakami's writing was The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. After several stalled attempts, I finally relaxed enough to read the book in its entirety. Carried away on a wave of enthusiasm, I then tackled Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World and plunged into something I couldn't fathom. I was lost. As lost as the character in the book!

Murakami is one of the darlings of modern literature. Have you read any of his work - and if so, did you truly understand what he was on about?

I loved Hard Boiled Wonderland. It is bizarre but if you just go with it it's pretty cool. I have read a couple of his others too, though I tend to mix up which was which since most of them have certain elements in common (a mysterious woman who disappears, a man who is obsessed with her etc.). He does get a bit obtuse at times. I hear that with some of them it matters what order you read them in.
I've neither read his books or heard of him before.
