Norwegian Wood

28 11 2010

Just finished my first Haruki Murakami novel, and it’s probably the most exquisite thing I’ve read in a long long time. Norwegian Wood is a story of a young man’s search for love. It is also an incredibly sad story of loss, and it draws you completely into the world of the three young people around whom the story revolves. To be able to love someone so completely as Toru loves Naoko is both a blessing and a curse. I don’t think one can ever recover from such a love. On the other hand, only a love like that can show you what it truly means for two human beings to come together.
