Annoying , misleading
Poorly researched scientific facts.
Was thoroughly disappointed at the end, though the first half was an engrossing read.

Have been gifted this by husband more than a year ago... Somehow I couldn't start reading ...don't know why. From yesterday night the book has been beckoning me with its siren cry .. Yess.. the time has come .
As we say "shubh muhurth"- the auspicious time ?

Loved it. 5 stars . Can't do a detailed review here due to word restrictions. Suffice that loved the prose and Alaska came alive , despite me reading it in the heights of monsoon in a tropical country .

A tough nut to crack. The vernacular dialect is headache inducing ..though the story was thought provokingly powerful

Sputnik Sweetheart | Haruki Murakami
Mehso-so

Just passable for a Murakami .
This book deals with realities and mirages ... Two sides of a coin , mirror images .. and everything double natured.
Plus it looks upon various hues of attraction - between friends , employer -employees , man -woman, woman-woman.
There are 3 lead characters -
Sumire, the mysterious 22 year old, the narrator , Sumire's friend and secret admirer , and Miu, the older lady whom Sumire is enamored of.

LettieHempstock This one was my first Murakami. It had seemed pretty much brilliant back then, as you would expect someone's first taste of Murakami to be. But looking back I see how it was barely up to his usual standard, not to mention the political incorrectness! 5mo
Syl Perhaps I too would have liked it better if it were one of my earlier Murakamis . But books like Norwegians wood, 1Q84, Wind up bird chronicles and Kafka on the shore have spoilt me. 😁 5mo
LettieHempstock I just realised that I haven't read a Murakami in nearly three years. 5mo
