Dance Dance Dance | Haruki Murakami
High-class call girls billed to Mastercard. A psychic 13-year-old dropout with a passion for Talking Heads. A hunky matinee idol doomed to play dentists and teachers. A one-armed beach-combing poet, an uptight hotel clerk and one very bemused narrator caught in the web of advanced capitalist mayhem. Combine this offbeat cast of characters with Murakami's idiosyncratic prose and out comes Dance Dance Dance.** Murakamis new novel is coming ** COLORLESS TSUKURU TAZAKI AND HIS YEARS OF PILGRIMAGE 'The reason why death had such a hold on Tsukuru Tazaki was clear. One day his four closest friends, the friends hed known for a long time, announced that they did not want to see him, or talk with him, ever again.'

Today‘s steps, a little lower than my usual because of the heavy rain this morning. Some of the steps were earned in my swing-dance class (pic is not my actual class!)

LapReader I‘m going to ask my partner to come to dance lessons with me now. Ta for the inspiration. 7mo
Emilymdxn That‘s still a great amount of steps! I‘ve always wanted to try swing dancing, I had a friend who did it and it looked super fun! 7mo
TheEllieMo @Emilymdxn go for it; you don‘t even need anyone to go with, you‘ll get paired up and the partners are rotated so you dance with loads of different people. 7mo

My poise is NOT good enough to balance metal jars of liquid (milk, oil, water) on my head while spinning in a circle but these ladies managed it! Second last evening of the Jaipur Literature Festival and they‘re going out with a bang! It‘s been amazing. The crowds are intense, the lineups diverse and the spectacle spectacular. If you can swing a visit to the #ZeeJLF I highly recommend it (but can tell you a hotel you should probably avoid! 😂)

“..there were times I saw freshness and beauty. I could smell the air, and I really loved rock 'n' roll. Tears were warm, and girls were beautiful, like dreams. I liked movie theaters, the darkness and intimacy, and I liked the deep, sad summer nights.”

Murakami‘s books are like marmite. I think to appreciate his books is an acquired taste..🤷‍♀️ I like his non fiction What I Talk About When I Talk About Running.

Steady and solidly enjoyable all the way through. This is one of my two favorite Murakami books. It is surreal, but more grounded than his other books, and less weird. It's a great accessible first Murakami book and was calm and pleasing to read. There was nothing remarkable about it, but it was really enjoyable.

DARKNESS
Terrifying, nullifying, dreadful. What if this is your world? Your reality? Would you mind to live and accept the fact that nothing is truly impossible? Anything can happen in this world or in our worlds and it's an enormously terrible feeling. You are always tied, connected and it's in your hands to find your way out.

It's been a while. This is by far my most fave read from Haruki Murakami. A must read everyone 🤗

cathysaid @BethM Prices are pretty standard so you don't find any amazing deals, but I loved the selection. I had never seen these two Murakami before today. 1y
cathysaid @cariashley Yes, they do a lot with minimal space. Long and narrow. Though I suspect that originates from prior 19th & 20th century tax laws in the area. They based property tax on street frontage rather than total size. 1y
cathysaid @Zelma Oh yeah,that would be annoying. 1y

I typically love Murakami but I don‘t love his portrayal of women in most of his books. This book is especially egregious and filled with cringeworthy passages. I‘m struggling with it a little

ephemeralwaltz That is an issue I've been thinking about lately. I am head over heels in love with Murakami's writing and stories but they are very male-centered and often portray women as objectified and minor characters... I haven't read this one yet. 2y
JenP @ephemeralwaltz yes, some books are better than others but I think you are right. 😢 2y
BarbaraBB If I remember well, there was a very strong and intriguing female mc in 2y

This has nothing to do with books, but a little bit of a brag. This is my son, a senior in high school, who will be attending college in the fall to major in Dance. Just so proud of him and his courage to stand out in a very.redneck.town, where boys play sports and don‘t dance 😁

Kappadeemom @LauraBeth It was a tough road for a while. I really pushed back in the beginning because of my own fear. Once he assured me that he could handle any bullying that took place, I let him go. It‘s been very interesting that no one really bothers him at school. BUT - he is also BFFs with every beautiful and popular girl in school, so there‘s that. Lol....I can‘t wait to see how he does at KSU 2y

tpixie Is KSU KENTUCKY ( probably) OR KANSAS? Congrats! After college at the U of KS, my son got a dance scholarship in LA. He's done some commercials & a music video. This year hasn't been quite as active, but he's getting nibbles, is in another dance school, & taking acting lessons. (He would probably advise your son to take some drama classes too). It's great seeing your kids be brave enough to go after their passion!! Greatest luck to your son! 2y

Mostly picking this because of the title but #whatafeeling it was to tear through such an addictive and eerie mystery. A simple premise- main character searches for his missing girlfriend- is treated to all manners of Murakami weirdness (creepy hotel and sheep man included), but this one has the fastest pace of any others I've read. Sequel to A Wild Sheep Chase, but works as a standalone too. #augustgrrrl @Cinfhen

Kammbia1 This was my Murakami novel I have ever read. You can read my review of it: http://marion-hill.com/book-review-76-dance-dance-dance-by-haruki-murakami/ 2y
TobeyTheScavengerMonk Oooo Wild Sheep Chase was my first Murakami. Need this! 2y
Billypar @Kammbia1 Thanks- nice review! It's funny I was surprised too when I found out how huge his fanbase is. I picked my first one at random, never having heard of him. I agree this one doesn't have as much attention or acclaim as the others, but I'm a sucker for a good mystery so I think that's why this is one of my favorites. @TobeyTheScavengerMonk I even liked it more than Sheep Chase. 2y
Kammbia1 @Billypar Thanks for the kind words about the review. @TobeyTheScavengerMonk A Wild Sheep Chase is my favorite Murakami novel I've read so far. I just finished reading Wind-Up Bird Chronicle a few weeks ago. 2y
