G men are very much alike These The Kingdom (Fargo Adventure, is nothing dramatic or spellbinding about the plotsn fact they remind me a bit of what has been said about the American TV series Seinfeld being about nothing Yet Murakami s style grabs you and holds your attention I ll write about Pinball as Johnny Came Home it has of a traditional plot structure The narrator and a friend have started a freelance translation service from English and Frenchnto Japanese The narrator becomes obsessed with an early pinball game He gives us a bit about the history of pinball and early nventors When the arcade s demolished the specific machine he liked best disappears and he contacts another obsessive pinball player to track down the old machine Meanwhile he lives with the twins and tells us about his memories of the Japanese student movement and of a former girlfriend who hanged herself Wells are mentioned and also a cat but not as much as The Complete Idiots Guide to Raising Chickens in some of his later novels Also western especially American culturalcons are featured The Complete Idiots Guide to Finance for Small Business including liuors music and television shows And ass often the case His Guarded Heart in Murakami s stories theres a surreal or even science fiction aspect to the story as he writes about some people being from other planets still adapting to earth s environment Here s a passage that I thought The Woman Who Walked Into the Sea illustrated Murakami s writing style The Rat could see that she his girlfriend was trying to establish a kind of perfectionn her small world He was well aware that reuired an extraordinary degree of determination She wore only the most modest yet tasteful dresses over fresh clean undergarments applied an eau de cologne with the fragrance of a morning vineyard to her body took great care The Goodness of Dogs in choosing her words asked no pointless uestions and appeared to have practiced smilingn the mirror Yet these things only added to the Rat s sadness The book begins with an essay by Murakami Everybody Matters in which he tells us how he began writing because he was hit by a lightning bolt at a baseball game Hey I can write a novel And he discusses how his first drafts were flat so he wroten English The Slaughter in which he was not at all proficient at the time and then translated the text back to Japanese During this time he and his wife were working endless hoursn a barnightclub that they started Good stories that held my attention Top photo from pinrescuecomThe author from radicalreadscom.
