Koniec złotej epoki dwindled and went nowhere in the end In the unlikely event that Haruki Murakami s name on the cover is not in some way a uality label to you guaranteeing profoundly outlandish scenarios and magic he threw in the term wonderland to make sure everyone knew what to expect Does the storyeliver on all the promises this wonderful title embodiesYesI Simply Irresistible (Girl Friends decided to re visit this book after having read it around 3 years ago before my reviewing habit kicked in because I remembered it being an instant favorite butidn 'A narrative particle accelerator that zooms between Wild Turkey Whiskey and Bob Dylan unicorn skulls and voracious librarians John Coltrane and Lord Jim Science fiction Miracles in Unexpected Places detective sto. Remember why exactly I had some vague notions of course but pinpointing the thing thatrew me in really making a case for why others should read it as well I could not Can I Entdeckungsreise nach Tahiti und in die Südsee 1772-1775 do it nowNo But I ll try anyway What I can say is that this is a the best Murakami I ve read b a superb introduction to this great authorWhile in the other books I ve read by him it felt as if all the characters were conspiring to make things as strange as possible for the reader thinking so far outside of the box the mere notion of a box seemed ludicrous in this one they seem sympathetic Especially the protagonist He seems like he s a good friend of Murakami introducing him to you but regardless of their bond the main character is on your side When Murakami comes up with something fantastical he ll go with it sure but not without raising his eyebrows to you signaling Ion t know what the hell is going on either but it s fun rightYes yes it is my friend And the complicity between the protagonist and the reader will be the thing holding you in your seat when the Murakami rollercoaster ride gets really wild and upside Japji down Ion t want to give away too many Suburban Governance details on the story I think it s bestiscovered by reading it for yourself in all its glory It eals with one of my favorite topics the mind its powers its mysteries its pitfalls The joys of losing yourself in thought the angers of a closed mind the connections with the heart they re all poured into wonderful metaphors that together make for a great adventureThe novel alternates between two settings the Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World Which is real What is their connection Can both exist in harmony Which would you rather live in A place of passions and Atlantic Diasporas dangers but only for a limited time Or a place of peace and tranuility forever Is an answer even possibleNot in my book maybe in this one The unnamed protagonist in this story tries to answer these uestions in the midst of information wars between the System and the Factory in a village completely surrounded and isolated by an impenetrable Wall in a race against time running from sinister enemies in underground tunnels all the while trying to make sure his shadow can keep up I tried to cover a lot of what s in the story here but Iidn t even come close to getting it all This isn t the kind of story that can be summarized into a blurb It s exciting It s Politics and Public Health in Revolutionary Russia, 1890-1918 deep It s funny Its settings are mysterious and thought provoking Oh and there s a map I love stories that come with maps There was a lot of time spent simply gazing at that map imagining to walk the river shores into the woodsreaming away In short an all time favorite It also has my favorite uote of all time A uote on how everything is fine And always will beTake a moment sit back relax and read these words that never fail to impress me no matter how many times I ve read them The sun sliced through the windshield sealing me in light I closed my eyes and felt the warmth on my eyelids Sunlight traveled a long The Pronouns distance to reach this planet an infinitesimal portion of that sunlight was enough to warm my eyelids I was moved That something as insignificant as an eyelid had its place in the workings on the universe that the cosmic orderid not overlook this momentary fact Reading this book has been like soft rays of sunshine finding their way to my eyelids an experience I wish to highly
