Nothings been catching my interest in the past few days. Started five different books and nothings sticking. Hoping that this will be different - excited about this #ARC.

After Dark | Haruki Murakami
post image
Pickpick

Honestly the first half did not seem like something Murakami would write. But perhaps it was the necessary setup. The second half starts developing some of the familiar Murakami features. There are themes of duality, some magical realism, and lots on sleep (and lack thereof). Felt short though. Could have done lots more with it. 3.5 ⭐️

Memory Police | Yoko Ogawa
post image
Pickpick

I feel conflicted as I try to figure out how exactly I feel about The Memory Policy. It‘s well written, smooth reading, it talks about disappearances, but builds a full and complete picture of that world. That, I love. When it comes to some of the characters‘ choices, there‘s a lot that I would change. But then the book wouldn‘t have the same effect, right? 4.5 ⭐️ for me

DrexEdit Good review! This book is on my list so it's good to know what I might be getting into! 😊 2w
Hooked_on_books I loved this one. I thought the premise was wildly creative. 2w

Really enjoyed this book 😊 Spooky, just perfect for this time of year. YA but great for adult readers. The first two chapters just set things up but starting in Chapter 3 you‘re really pulled in and it‘s next to impossible to put this down. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ @Gissy thanks for gifting it to me 😁

Kafka on the Shore | Haruki Murakami

Pickpick

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ A tale of a journey that was a journey to get through. Dripping with symbolism and metaphors. Would have given it 5 stars but some details almost made me quit half way through. I‘m glad I didn‘t. “Narrow minds devoid of imagination. Intolerance, theories cut off from reality, empty terminology, usurped ideals, inflexible systems. Those are the things that really frighten me.”

I really enjoyed this quick read. It talks about life, loneliness, and relationships. You won‘t always agree with the characters‘ choices but you‘ll definitely understand their motivations. Definitely recommend.

Wasn‘t for me. Perhaps because of being too predictable from almost the very beginning. Topic is definitely thought provoking but it just felt like a slow march through sadness. #KazuoIshiguro is a great author but I wish I had skipped this one.
