Pressestimmen

"A Japanese mix of A Clockwork Orange and L'Etranger." -Newsweek"Bugs and mucus, cheesecake and semen, rain and runways-all lovingly described." - Washington Post"Highly recommended for readers of the bizarre." -Antioch Review"A violent book-sharply begun and slammed quickly to a finish." -Bestsellers

Synopsis

This controversial novel touched the raw nerves of the Japanese and became a million seller within six months of publication. It is a semi-autobiographical tale of the author's youth spent amidst the glorious squalor of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll in 1970s Japan.

If nothing else, this book will shatter any illusions you may have had about Japan and its people fitting any stereotypes or what you thought were your astute observations on them. However the novel soon runs out of steam ('oh, another orgy') and ends somewhat predictably, regardless of whether youre reading the original or the translation. The sexually explicit passages are quite compelling and realistic, but overall the focus is weak. The subplot involving the narrator's imaginary 'city' is particularly uninteresting and contrived. It is a must-read (and own) for the serious student of Japanese and a quick one at that. In the end though, other novels like Box Man and any Tanizaki (or Dostoyevsky, Burgess' Clockwork Orange) evoke conscious self-destruction more eloquently with insightful denoument. While I did enjoy the book and was able to relate it to some of my own experience, a word of warning to all would-be coffeshop japanophile poseurs : this book isn't as good as you think it is

Street cool characters drink, do drugs and have a lot of group sex - then the protagonist decides there must be more to life than that.
Well, yeah.
This novel aspires to Camus "L'Etranger" but without the philosophical underpinning we're left with pure derivation. There's the same tone of voice, the same sensuousness of description, the same criticism of contemporary values, but no ideas beneath the surface. Given the 20 year gap, Murakami can be more graphic than Camus, but painting the vomit in greener tones only makes things more cartoon-like.

This book reminded me of Brett-Easton Ellis's book Less Then Zero. A man will tell you of his lost years as a young man. His first person narritive is carefully paced and well thoughtout you almost think that you stumbled on somebodys private diary and you are sneaking a peek. This makes it all the better to read, like you are privy to some private confession that on one should hear. You strangely feel no sympathy for him and his friends mistakes, but you are very curious about them and what becomes of them. The chacters are well written alomst like they could be people that you might have met in your life. All I have to say is if you like first person narritives like I do read this book

Von Ein Kunde am 4. August 1999
Format: Taschenbuch
I guess I have to admit that my image of Japanese culture is rather off. When I think of Japan the last things that come to mind are junkies, crime, and moral bankruptcy. I can't say this book has made me feel any better about anything, but it has shown me that the sort of problems infecting America today are common elsewhere too. If I had to compare this book to anything else, I'd say the author is close to Brett Easton Ellis in his dry, morbid, clinical description of some rather unsavory, unsympathetic, and generally unpleasant characters. I recommend it only for those who are willing to learn from the mistakes of others.

A great read. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Especially the end which I didn' t see as entirely fatalistic. I felt the character("Ryu"), in spite of his situation, seem to regain his motivation and sense of purpose when he is able to return to his apartment. "...I thought, I want to become like this glass. And I want to reflect this smooth white curving myself. I want to show other people these splendid curves reflected in me." This book is that reflection. Don't be put off by it' s informal writing and only slightly awkward translation. You wont regret it when you finish it.
