Kafka On The Shore – Haruki Murakami

Who bought it: Another one given by Van. What is it: Not about Kafka the writer, but it is about Kafka, a teenager who is both escaping an omen and searching for his family. When: November 26, 2011 Where: The price tag says it was bought at National Book Store. Why: I’ve never read anything by Murakami before, but I was considering reading The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle since it’s supposed to be his best, according to my bookish friends. These bookish friends, however, added that a new Murakami reader should start with Kafka. How much: Free! Advertisements
