She did not find it especially difficult to remember historical dates. Even if she did not learn them by rote memorization, once she grasped the relationship of an event to its time and to the events preceding and following it, the date would come to her automatically.
In both middle school and high school, she had always gotten the top grade on history exams. It puzzled her to hear someone say he had trouble learning dates.
How could something so simple be a problem for anyone?
Her father had cut his ties with his family before her birth, just as her mother had done with her own family, so she had never met any of her grandparents. She had never found a single one, and whenever she tried and failed, she felt like a lonely castaway on the open sea.
Telling people her name was always a bother. As soon as the name left her lips, the other person looked puzzled or confused. People would stare at the card as if she had thrust a letter at them bearing bad news.
When she announced her name on the telephone, she would often hear suppressed laughter. Pretty close, though. If I had had an ordinary name like Sato or Tanaka or Suzuki, I could have lived a slightly more relaxed life or looked at people with somewhat more forgiving eyes. Eyes closed, Aomame listened to the music, allowing the lovely unison of the brasses to sink into her brain. Just then it occurred to her that the sound quality was too good for a radio in a taxicab.
Despite the rather low volume at which it was playing, the sound had true depth, and the overtones were clearly audible. She opened her eyes and leaned forward to study the dashboard stereo. The jet-black device shone with a proud gloss. This was not the kind of stereo you expected to see in an ordinary fleet cab.
She had been too absorbed in her own thoughts to notice until now, but this was no ordinary taxi. The high quality of the trim was evident, and the seat was especially comfortable.
Above all, it was quiet. The car probably had extra sound insulation to keep noise out, like a soundproofed music studio. The driver probably owned his own cab. Many such owner-drivers would spare no expense on the upkeep of their automo- biles. Two summers ago, I sold all my Murakami books at the Strand bookstore and got a dollar in return for each.
While I was there, I did browse the M section force of habit , and I did flip open After Dark , but closed it after the first page and walked away. Thing is, I was over that period in my life.

As Murakami writes in that story about a man and his ex-girlfriend who reunite after many years later just to have sex only to end up not going through with it because that door had closed, I realized that the door back to Murakami and all the feelings I had during the time I was reading him had shut, too. I recently tried to read 'The Elephant Vanishes'. So glad to know that I'm not really missing out on anything. At first I thought this was going to make me mad because I really love Haruki Murakami and had a period where I could read nothing but Murakami.
But I really liked this. Also, some of your initial reads were ones I wasn't crazy about. I favor 'Norwegian Wood' among the few Murakami books I've read and wanted to read 'Sputnik Sweetheart' for a long time.
Alas, there is no available copy in sight. I think I'm currently on my Murakami phase but for a long time now. I hated 'Kafka', though. I knew there was some sort of theme with his works. Sometimes I'd be too lost in the plot and find the characters just rambling on and on and basically being egotistical.
I think I'm having second thought about expanding my Murakami collection, now that you've enlightened some stuff out for me. People have different reading tastes, no doubt about it. What is the point to write about why she stopped reading HM books — I am not sure? Maybe, she could never understand the writer or truly connect to the stories.
His books are not for everybody, like with any other author. To me — he is brilliant — both, as a writer and as a person. Going into this article I wanted to dislike it but I think it's because of poor choice of the text blurb chosen for the preview. This was a nice article but the blurb doesn't do it justice.

You explore something which I think is a very worthwhile subject to write about i. Anyway I really enjoyed this, and I don't know whether it's down to the author or the editor to choose the preview text. Hope to see more of your writing here! You make a good point about his books thematically, but your reason for not wanting to read Murakami seems a bit…. Because you couldn't stand that you were lonely despite having a relationship you disliked reading a book that mirrored those feelings?
Seems kind of like a silly reason for saying you avoid to now read Murakami — it's basically saying you want to avoid confronting those feelings you had about your ex-boyfriend. Don't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Good job Grace: My first book was Kafka on recommendation from a friend. Its really memorable and a 'fun' read, the whimsicality of it keeps you turning pages, but yeah I definitely felt let down by the end. I think part of the problem is that all the weird 'stuff' that happens in his book isn't some dream sequence, with some real world explanation, it just IS, which is not something you come across often I don't think… There's no good grounded answer to why someone can talk to cats, but they can.
Don't believe a word of this—Murakami is a genius. Seems like you were looking to Murakami to solve some of your personal problems, which may be why you feel that are over his writings. The best literature I've read, and art I've seen, has made me ask some important questions and provided some much needed perspective, but could never be expected to provide any specific advice.
Be aware of where your prejudices may lie, and don't take it out on him, just try to improve on your own work by realizing why his work fell off with you. Maybe by the time you are in your mid-thirties, you will feel like making some perfectly al-dente spaghetti, and the phone will ring…. Its such a coincidence that thoughtcatalog happened to make an article about Murakami as I am just pages away from finishing Norwegian Wood today!
It isn't my favourite book, but it has certainly kept me hooked, and the characters are very likeable.
I think I agree that the themes in the book can sometimes feel like they reflect whats going on in your life while you read it as I have felt that a lot with other books I've read. This is a thoughtful article. I saw this post quoted and wanted to read the context and it sounds to me that your feelings on Murakami's works are strictly personal. That is, your current distaste for him is justified but it isn't universal.
This is one of the reasons why I tend to avoid reading the same author too much—I don't want to feel as though I'm being held captive in the world they have created. However, for some reason South of the Border West of the Sun effected me the most. Only a few days after I apologized to both of them I found out they had started hooking up together and eventually became boyfriend and girlfriend themselves.
I was devastated and that contributed to my ideas about being lonely and that people will leave you forever. I agree with you about Kafka on the Shore.
I never finished it because I couldn't focus. I'm taking a break from Murakami right now as well, there are a lot of books I still haven't read. I just can't handle the mind fuck. I'm in such a sensitive time in my life sobriety that I'm afraid if I start to get those feelings of we are all just lonely and desperate for a connection with another person that I could lose it.
Grace — very nice article.
As you began your journey with Murakami mid-way with Norwegian Wood, might I suggest in a true Murakami sense to go backwards from the beginning and read some of his early works like Sheep, Hard-boiled, and Dance? I dare say you might find a little less loneliness even though the characters are still loners and a lot more playfulness.
