Re: Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman - stories by Haruki Murakami
A friend send this to me and make my day !
I started it last night on the way back home...
Im a bit afraid about having a surprise like iN Kafka of the Shore. So far the least favorite Murakami in my collection. But this are short stories. anyway im all excited.

that anime based in Hard Boiled is going to be my new obsession this weekend... where can i find it?

About the options of Murakami, if you want to read the best book ever !!!
go and grab hardboiled wonderland and the end of the world.

i haven't read Hardboiled Wonderland and the End of the World, but i'm fairly certain Haibane Renmei isn't explicitly based on it--i love the series though, so i think i'll pick up the book soon

In an interview in the magazine [COLOR=#0000ff]Animerica[/COLOR], ABe stated that the series was inspired by [COLOR=#0000ff]Haruki Murakami[/COLOR]'s novel [COLOR=#800080]Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World[/COLOR], half of which takes place in a walled city with no apparent outside. Some fans believe the series contains influence from another Murakami novel, [COLOR=#0000ff]The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle[/COLOR], in which the main character spends a large amount of time at the bottom of a well.
take from wikipedia. so yeah, its not based off it but it definetly has a lot of things inspired by it and watching it you'll see a lot of things that were in the book.

Re: Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman - stories by Haruki Murakami
So what's your favorite story?

I loved Hanalei Bay because of the surfers and the girl jazz player!!
but Toni Takitani is my favorite. I read the line of "The shadows of the shadows of her wife" way too many times.!!

So the strange feeling about kafka on the shore, is gone.. He totally make it up with this stories.

Ah, they're all so great... The Year of Spaghetti and The Kidney-Shaped Stone That Moves Every Day come to mind immediatley, but the whole collection is gold.
