book

Norwegian Wood is a bit more grounded in reality than the rest of Haruki Murakami’s works, but it still offers a bunch of quirky but profound characters, and a surprisingly involving plot despite not that much actually happening in the story.

Positive:
Negative:
Pleasant, fast-paced, easy-to-digest prose
Nothing that much memorable actually happens in the story
Likable, quirky, profound characters
A surprisingly involving plot
Enlightening on Japanese culture
Thought-provoking on the meaning of life
