I go back to the reading room, where I sink down in the sofa and into the world of The Arabian Nights. Slowly, like a movie fadeout, the real world evaporates. I’m alone, inside the world of the story. My favorite feeling in the world.
-Haruki Murakami / Kafka on the Shore
I put off reading Murakami because there was so much hype about the author. I felt like if that many people like it then it’s got to be mindless shite. Well I got Kafka on the Shore as a gift for Christmas. Read it in a few days. The thing is in Murakami’s case, there’s the hype because there’s just not much written like he does. It’s a mix of absurd but visceral, and distant but still emotional. I think anyone can feel something when reading his work.
