Last week during a visit to my local library I decided to reserve a few Haruki Murakami books. For some reason they are kept in reserve stock instead of on the shelves so I knew I wasn't going to be in for long wait. Of the 2 books I reserved I decided to read this one first. There was no particular reason for this, it just ended up this way. I really loved the other Murakami books that I have read so I was really looking forward to reading this one.

As usual for Murakami, there aren't that many characters to deal with, in fact there are only 3 main characters, the rest being unimportant in the grand scheme of things. The book is written from the point of view of a young male teacher who we only know as K. K is in love with a slightly younger wannabe writer called Sumire, the feelings aren't mutual however. Sumire ends up falling deeply in love with an older Korean woman who is called Miu. Things are further complicated by the fact that Miu is married with children and a very different person to Sumire.

For me, the first half of the book was fairly unspectacular for Murakami. That isn't to say that it was poor but I felt it lacked a little bit of the usual Murakami magic. The one thing that remains a constant is the enigmatic nature of his female characters. As with his other works I felt drawn to them while at the same time not really knowing why. K doesn't feature so much in the first half of the book and it's not until much later do we discover more about him.

I wasn't that fond of the use of Greece as a setting for the later stages of the book. Murakami's Japan is always really magical to me and his Greece doesn't quite have that same mysticism for me. However, certain things really do work well. The use of a Ferris wheel as a way for Miu to view herself on 'the other side' works extremely well. I really love the way that Murakami demands some suspension of belief from the reader to make things work and if you are willing to take that leap that you are rewarded as the book progresses.

Isolation and loneliness are big themes in the book but instead of being dealt with directly, they are dealt with in a more spiritual way. K especially feels the loneliness when Sumire disappears and wonders if he will always be lonely in future, a fear I'm sure many people can identify with. There is also the theme that people often give a part of themselves up when deeply in love and when it doesn't work out that part is gone forever. This make the isolation far harder to deal with and I guess that some people just never the same after that.

Again Murakami ends the book in a non-definite way and I think this is one of the main reasons why his writing has quite such an effect. You can't help but think things over and reply things over and over again in your head and this leaves a lasting impression.

There is one short paragraph from the book that really stuck in my head.

"So that's how we live our lives. No matter how deep and fatal the loss, no matter how important the things that's stolen from us - that's snatched right out of our hands - even if we are left completely changed people with only the outer layer of skin from before, we continue to play out our lives in this way, in silence. We draw ever nearer to our allotted span of time, bidding it farewell as it trails off behind. Repeating, often adroitly, the endless deeds of the everyday. Leaving behind a feeling of immeasurable emptiness."

I am going to give this book 4/5. The reason behind it not being 5/5 is that although it is very good it doesn't feel quite as magical throughout as some of his other work. Parts of it are right up there with his best work in my opinion but other parts are merely good. This is a mark of just how much I like Murakami. He has set such a high watermark for himself that there is no shame in falling slightly short of this. ( )

this Murakami novel seems a bit less focused than usual, and the characters are not as indelible either. though it's also a bit more emotional than his style generally allows, which is interesting, it doesn't quite nail that territory. it seems to want to move away from his trademark magic realism too, into some dialogue about the power of words to build worlds, speaking of signs vs symbols, but that doesn't quite take either. maybe it needed another pass before it went to the printer.

Non trovare le parole per descrivere un libro è la sconfitta di ogni lettore, ma in questo caso non so davvero cosa dire. Forse è vero che alcuni libri ci trovano nei momenti in cui più ne abbiamo bisogno; forse leggere questo libro proprio adesso è stato un segno del destino. Non mi era mai successo di leggere i miei pensieri, rubati dagli angoli più reconditi del mio cervello, messi su carta con una tale intimità; non avevo mai letto nessuno usare parole tanto vivide per descrivere la solitudine che da sempre mi, ci, accompagna da farmela sentire sulla pelle, nel cuore. Alcuni aspetti mi sono poco chiari, ma forse l'obiettivo di Murakami era proprio questo, e anche se ormai l'ho finito da ore so che ogni parola mi è entrata sottopelle, come un tatuaggio. Indimenticabile. ( )

This is the first book I read that was written by Murakami. My first reaction upon finishing the book was a very inarticulate and unoriginal "wow." What happened at the end? Opinions differ. But what an unusual and interesting ride! The sort of ride that occurs in a rowboat, floating down a canal, looking at the beauty of the scenery, and you suddenly realize the entire day has floated by.

"Sputnik Sweetheart" is the story of a male teacher in Tokyo referred to as "K" , who falls in love with a female named Sumire. Sumire and K were classmates in college, and Sumire maintains that she only wants a friendship with K. Indeed, Sumire does not pursue any romantic relationships until she meets an older woman, Miu. Sumire falls in love with Miu, and we follow their relationship through the eyes of all three characters. Ultimately, K receives a telephone call from Miu informing him that Sumire has disappeared from a Greek Island where they were vacationing. K travels to Greece to try to find Sumire. (None of this information is spoiler material, it is including in the blurb on the back of the book.) What happens from there, I cannot reveal. . . .

My summary does not do justice to Murakami's work, which was originally written in Japanese and translated into English. This book is filled with beautiful writing, which evokes many different emotions. There are some surprising developments in the plot that simply cannot be judged, or evaluated, out of the context of Murakami's prose.

Some of my favorite quotes - "Remove everything pointless from an imperfect life, and it'd lose even its imperfection."

"The door opens; the door shuts. The light goes out. This is the last day for the person I am right now. The very last twilight. When dawn comes, the person I am won't be here anymore. Someone else will occupy this body."

On October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched the world's first man-made satellite, Sputnik I, from the Baikanor Space Center in the Republic of Kazahkstan. Sputnik was 58 centimeters in diameter, weighed 83.6 kilograms, and orbitted the earth in 96 minutes and 12 seconds.
  On November 3 of the same year , Sputnik II was successfully launched, with the dog Laika aboard. Laika became the first living being to leave the earth's atmosphere, but the satellite was never recovered, and Laika ended up sacrificed for the sake of biological research in space.

Information fra den italienske Almen Viden. Redigér teksten, så den bliver dansk.
Però, se mi è concessa un'osservazione banale, in questa vita imperfetta abbiamo bisogno anche di una certa quantità di cose inutili. Se tutte le cose inutili sparissero, sarebbe la fine anche di questa nostra imperfetta esistenza.
… quando la luna se ne sta sconsolata nel suo angolino a oriente come un vecchio rene sciupato.
Era una di quelle piogge quiete ma incessanti che in primavera oscurano e impregnano di umidità la terra, risvegliando dolcemente gli istinti delle infinite creature senza nome che la popolano.
«Ogni ragionamento o teoria che spiega tutto in modo troppo esauriente, nasconde una trappola. … se c'è qualcosa che può essere spiegato con un solo libro, forse non merita spiegazione. Insomma, quello che voglio dire è che è meglio non affrettarsi a tirare troppo presto conclusioni».
Cominciai a non abboccare più a tutte le cose che mi dicevano. L'unico spazio nel quale esprimevo un entusiasmo incondizionato era quello dei libri e della musica. E così, come forse era inevitabile, ho finito col diventare una persona piuttosto solitaria.
