{Gratuit Epub} Ô Wind/Pinball: Two novels ¶ eBook or E-pub free

I don t like that the electronic version costsBut regarding the actual content of the writingI m trying to read all of Murakami in order this year I finished Wind and am halfway through Pinball I really enjoyed Wind even though it s not supposed to be his best but hey it was his first I m impressed and somewhat captivated with the way he captured this aspect of being 18 24ish It s a bit hard to put into words I guess, but despite being an American who spent my early 20s in America a few decades after Murakami spent his in Japan, I felt he captured this aspect of growing up that while I won t say is universal, was something I felt connected to and related to when reading So far I m enjoying Pinball Will update when I finish. This book is captivating, like so many well, all of Murakami s books It s melancholic tone and narrative featuring ordinary people undergoing not so ordinary experiences makes a person think and ruminate on the coincides and connections in life The little things we wouldn t normally think once let alone twice about take on an altogether different importance in Murakami s works.This is a collection of two books each about the length of a short novel Both books feature an unnamed narrator and the Rat Both young men going through inner turmoil brought about by a grander sense of ennui There isn t a grand sense of resolution things just happen to change and each young man moves on in his own way. I am already one of Murakami s most avid readers who looks forward to each of his books that I read These two books which were his first were as good as his latest They are must reads If you have not read any Murakami s books, read this book first and get hooked Murakami s ability to make you bond with his character whose life is often surreal is magical His books are a must read. The two novels in this book are early works for Haruki Murakami, and while some sense of youth and angst comes across, the amazing writing keeps the reader spellbound to reading between the lines Both short novels are filled with yearning and love lost, as well as the wisdom that may be gained and the questions that remain This entire book is a pleasure to read, and the preface by the author about his own process and path is also particularly poignant As with most things Murakami, I highly recommend this book. So Murakami is my favorite author of all time I ve literally read every single thing that s available in the English language by him 1Q84 is my all time favorite book too I can t even begin to explain how excited and happy I was to hear that his first two works would finally be released in the English language But then I got the book and read it.First off, let me say that the book cover design and the Apollo typeface is lovely Knopf knows how to put out great looking books, that s for sure The interior had a ton of pauses and stops in both stories this book is broken into two narratives , and that got to be somewhat distracting by the 10th page of the book By the end I was pulling my hair out in frustration because I started to feel like I was reading random diary entries than two coherent stories So that wasn t so good.Then there s the story content for both narratives I would argue that the second story had me slightlyinterested in what was going on, being that the narrator is living with a set of twins I found it rather amusing to imagine in my head, and thankfully, in true Murakami fashion, it s easy to imagine because he s so perfect with all the mundane details of everyday life.Aside from some rather extraneous descriptions in sections of each narrative, there were glimmers of a story here and there in both narratives And a few memorable characters as well, besides the twins But both stories just kind of went nowhere I didn t feel I gained anything at all from reading them, which kind of is disappointing because when I finished 1Q84, I had tears in my eyes I was so deeply moved by that story I guess I can t be too hard on Murakami though this WAS his first two attempts at writing, but still I just had hoped for evenof a basic story, and instead I got diary entries pretending to be stories.I would say if you are a Murakami fan, get this book and add it to your collection of his works If you are interested in reading Murakami but never have, avoid this book like the plague Start with Hard Boiled Wonderland, or 1Q84 if you feel like tackling a Bible sized novel Am I glad I read this Sure, but I actually enjoyed the prefacethan anything else, which is where Murakami talks about his introduction to writing and his inspiration for wanting to write in the first place That was ten timesfascinating and interesting than anything else in the book, especially given the fact that we may never hear or see Murakami in real life talk about these things because he seemingly doesn t know what a book signing event is, or maybe he does book signings and speaking only in Japan Who knows But anytime we get some autobiographical discussion by Murakami, it s always brilliant and heart warming.A good read, but not an essential one, by my favorite author of all time. Why have we had to wait since 1973 to get English translations of these two novellas Murakami is way too modest in his introduction The first has very short chapters and relies a little too heavily on excerts from famous songs and other fictional classics but is still very rich in characterisation and quirky insights into daily Japanese life that Murakami has since built his career on.There is a strong sense of nostalgic longing and a feeling of lost direction in the main narrator and the other characters he has relationships with during Pinball which is definitely thepolished of the two short works Muarakami s ability to give the reader a strong sense of characters inner feelings by use of very little narrative was already very apparent here.After reading this I wouldthan recommend continuing with A Wild Sheep Chase which rounds out the story line Certain topics and thematic references are repeated thoughout Mr Murakam s later work An example would be Windup Bird Chronicles which I personally consider to be his masterpiece.Read this book, read anything by Murakami and keep on reading.
