⫷ The  Ó The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: A Novel (Vintage International)  ❰ By Haruki Murakami ⇲ ⫷ The Ó The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle: A Novel (Vintage International) ❰ By Haruki Murakami ⇲ Bad things come in threes for Toru Okada He loses his job, his cat disappears, and then his wife fails to return from work His search for his wife and his cat introduces him to a bizarre collection of characters, including two psychic sisters, a possibly unbalanced teenager, an old soldier who witnessed the massacres on the Chinese mainland at the beginning of the Second World War, and a very shady politician. Haruki Murakami is a master of subtly disturbing prose Mundane events throb with menace, while the bizarre is accepted without comment Meaning always seems to be just out of reach, for the reader as well as for the characters, yet one is drawn inexorably into a mystery that may have no solution The Wind Up Bird Chronicle is an extended meditation on themes that appear throughout Murakami s earlier work The tropes of popular culture, movies, music, detective stories, combine to create a work that explores both the surface and the hidden depths of Japanese society at the end of the 20th century. If it were possible to isolate one theme in The Wind Up Bird Chronicle, that theme would be responsibility The atrocities committed by the Japanese army in China keep rising to the surface like a repressed memory, and Toru Okada himself is compelled by events to take responsibility for his actions and struggle with his essentially passive nature If Toru is supposed to be a Japanese Everyman, steeped as he is in Western popular culture and ignorant of the secret history of his own nation, this novel paints a bleak picture Like the winding up of the titular bird, Murakami slowly twists the gossamer threads of his story into something of considerable weight Simon LeakeAmazingly long, incredibly pricey, wildly experimental, often confusing but never boring, Murakami s most famous novel has been brought to audio life with extreme dedication by Naxos, a company that regularly wins prizes, and by a reader with an uncommon combination of skills Degas is already a Murakami veteran, having read the audio version of A Wild Sheep Chase Naxos , and has worked on radio, stage and even cartoon voice including Mr Bean He catches the constantly changing mental landscape of Murakami s fertile imaginationwhich moves from detective story to explicit sexual fantasy, heartbreaking Japanese WWII historical flashback, everyday details of married life cooking, shopping and pet care and even the occasional burst of satiric humor Degas treats it all with the clarity and calmness of a very deep, very still pool Certainly not for everyone s taste or budget, but anyone interested in this important author will find something to enlighten them Available as a Vintage paperback Reviews, Aug 18 1997 Nov Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.
