— Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
Norwegian Wood was my first Haruki. Back then, I thought maybe I won't read something of this author again: he speaks often of two things I really can't relate to: love relationship and solitude.
Then I remembered I adored One Hundred Years of Solitude because of the second and Wuthering Heights because of the the first and I just decided I can go ahead and enjoy his style without the necessary empathy to dive in with the characters.
Harukis are the books where I watch actually. I just belong to the landscape there and it's awesome in its own way.
