Reading: After Dark by Haruki Murakami

May 19, 2008 in reading by banpei

Since I finished Densha Otoko (train man) I had to start with a new book. My girlfriend already packed most of our books because we’re moving so my choice was limited.

Lucky enough she didn’t pack After Dark by Haruki Murakami so I started with that book last night.

After Dark by Haruki Murakami

I must say that the book starts the usual Murakami style and the same goes for the atmosphere: a lot of references to his personal favorites. Makes me more curious to some reference to the background music of the part I read last night… I had the same with The Elepehant Vanishes: I even looked for secondhand Duke Ellington on Queensday and immeditately bought every single one I found.
