      Some authors excel at writing novels Others excel at the short form A few are equally adept at writing novels and short stories From my reading of The Elephant Vanishes, Haruki Murakami is not one of those people Here s why Murakami s novels are lush affairs By that I mean that his proto typically lazy character has time Time to develop interests, time to contemplate deeply, time to be affected, to become something The short form, by its very nature, does not allow the same luxuries So when Mur [...]

      apatheticEvery protagonist in Murakami s books though, I ve only read this and Norwegian Wood are apathetic They just float through their lives, never really caring about what is happening, or if there is anything they can do to fix it.I think to some readers this could be quite tedious, but there is something real about these characters because of their apathy Through the bizarre situations the characters face, the reader can relate on some level.The first few stories did annoy me, as many of t [...]

      Not only was the book amazing I truly believe he can do no wrong , but one of my best friends and I saw an actual play of it several years ago at Lincoln Center We had seats in the very front row The play as required, I m sure was balls out crazy, all in Japanese, with a ticker doing subtitles at the the top of the stage My memory sucks, but I think I recall a bunch of people with static spewing TVs for heads, and some crazy shit with sideways sleeping people Probably I should reread the stories [...]

      One cloudy night in April, in a habitual relay of stalking the profiles of strangers on GR, I found The 100% Perfect Girl.To be truthful, she wasn t especially beautiful in her profile picture Nor did any particular part of her profile jump out at me Her bookshelves were all over the place, and she didn t seem to be that active on GR any She hadn t written many reviews either However, the moment I clicked on Compare Books , I knew She is The 100% Perfect Girl for me When I saw that our tastes a [...]

      You too can write like Murakami Just remember the simple rules 1 Think of something weird Multiply the weirdness by 10 I haven t slept for last 16 nights and 17days Today is the 17th night I couldn t sleep I tried But failed I typed in Google Search Insomnia It took me to the Christopher Nolan s movie I didn t watch that movie I like Christopher Nolan, though So does my cat My cat doesn t watch any TV But whenever a Christopher Nolan movie comes he gets glued to the TV We all have something in c [...]

      This is my third Haruki Murakami read and by far my least favorite After Norwegian Wood and After Dark, I felt this author could do no wrong Those two novels were vastly different from each other one a simplistic yet moving coming of age story and the other a mindtrip into the streets and characters of nocturnal Japan and I was hoping some of that mastery of story would show up in each one of these tales I was sorely mistaken My rating is based solely on the fact that I only liked 7 out of 17 st [...]

      Like the secretive, quiet fall of rain, they steal into the gloomThey say that surrealist author Haruki Murakami captures the common ache of the contemporary heart and mind I thought this was a pretty spot on description of some of his best short stories I began reading Murakami in 2007, and he was a writer whose work and style resonated so strongly for me at that time where I m confronted with the ambiguities of daily existence He will always hold a special place in my heart as one of my favori [...]

    9. Cheryl says:

      To Murakami s fans, I must apologize, because although I liked this collection of stories, I didn t love it And from what I ve heard, to read Murakami is to fall in love with him However, if his novels mirror the dazzling, freakish, and surprising plot of Sleep,or have the tension that builds when you must follow outlandish characters, like the ones in The Second Bakery Attack, I ll read a Murakami novel again and again Yet while I do admire the fragmentary poignancy of the narratives in this co [...]

    10. Mel says:

      There were some good stories, but overall I don t think Murakami is someone I would go to for short stories He is terrible at conclusions for them, and only 1 or 2 stories left me wanting He is very very hit or miss with me and I m finding a lot of misses with him lately He has a very distinct style that shines through every novel he writes, but weirdly, I only like it sometimes.

    11. E.H. says:

      What can I say about Haruki Murakami He is famous, both in Japan and abroad, although in the States those who know him tend to be Literary Hipsters who are interested in Asia He writes novels and short stories, although his novels tend to be a bit disjointed and episodic, hinged like a Jacob s ladder His short stories will always employ a simile at the top of the second page which may seem at times deep and yet simple When I started reading The Elephant Vanishes, I wasn t really sure what I was [...]

      The Elephant Vanishes TEV is a compilation of 17 short stories which largely features loneliness, isolation and the act of breaking off the chains of conformity to modern Japanese highly expectant culture Out of 17 stories here, 13 stories were a hit and the rest were okayish pleasant enoughP 5 favourites in The Elephant Vanishes 1 Sleep This is my seventeenth straight day without a sleep God, I really really really loved Sleep It s raw, honest and invigoratingly refreshing It tells a story of a [...]

    13. A. Dawes says:

      Murakami here delivers a highly accessible and quirky collection of stories Murakami s conversational narrative voice throughout provides for an intimate atmosphere with readers As usual, I ll rate the stories individually below Despite a couple of hiccups, I d recommend the work 3.5 The Wind up Bird and Tuesday s Women A quirky urban story.4 The Second Bakery Attack A couple make a second bakery attack on MacDonald s Murakami at his offbeat best.4 The Kangaroo Communique An experimental tale pu [...]

      Finalmente riesco a leggere una nuova opera del mio autore giapponese preferito, Haruki Murakami Stavolta divoro anzi, assaporo una sua raccolta di racconti Ecco le mie brevi impressioni racconto per racconto Una lenta nave per la Cina questo racconto non mi ha entusiasmato pi di tanto, mediocre Granai incendiati questo racconto mi piaciuto Il nano ballerino il titolo dice tutto il protagonista della storia viene posseduto da un misterioso nano ballerino Storia abbastanza creepy ma godibile Il m [...]

    16. Joe says:

      murakami short stories rock my socks on a purely structural level, his sentence composition is brilliant short, descriptive, simple, and undeniably beautiful in a way that perhaps only a writer with an eastern perspective could achieve sometimes his sentences make you feel as if you are gazing from the summit of a mountain with no one else around besides that, his blend of the absurd with the bitterly mundane is a juxtaposition that only the most skilled writer could pull off with bizarre touche [...]

    17. Delphine Lurin says:

      This collection of 17 short stories are all geniusly written They captivated me instantly from the TV guys who consistently make a haunting appearance in TV People to the housewife who no longer needs shut eye in Sleep , with The Elephant Vanishes concluding the chain of whimsical happenings ever so vividly illustrated I ve always felt a bit daunted going into short stories because reading them requires a certain type of reader One who is able to remain completely absorbed by the story, taking i [...]

    19. James Curcio says:

      Murakami manages to keep the mind riveted in ways that I don t even fully understand If most of these stories were pitched to me as an editor, I d think they were somewhere between banal and stupidly fanciful in the way of a story that a seven year old might tell But in his hands, they re transfixing They d be transfiguring as well, except that sometimes he leaves you with so little to hold on to at the end of a piece that you re left just with a feeling like what just happened But then you come [...]

    20. Noshin Syara says:

      Haruki Murakami has always his own kinda flavor Short stories, melancholic stories, mostly weird stories I feel so submerged into his characters that sometimes its hard to remember that I m not them I don t listen to jazz in the morning with a can of bear, waking up next my partner feel so lifeless But you know, then I m here in the reality Which is even weirder but in a less interesting way

    21. Salymar says:

      Haruki Murakami is a best selling Japanese writer His works include 1Q84, The Wind up bird Chronicle, etc which have garnered critical acclaim and numerous awards To date, I have been eyeing to read some of his latest works including this novel, The Elephant Vanishes And now that I ve finished this, I can t totally picture how I m feeling right now, it s like I finally found my missing Tom cat for four 4 years while leaning over the edge of a boat and look down to the bottom of the sea watching [...]

      3,75 5Normalmente no suelo tener muchos problemas a la hora de puntuar una colecci n de relatos, pero est en particular fue Rara y estamos hablando de Murakami, as que ya os imagin is c mo de raro.Ha habido relatos que han sido magistrales El primero, el tercero y el ltimo sobre todo , otros sencillamente buenos el pen ltimo y el segundo y otros un pel n mediocres demasiado extra os para ser clasificados el de los chinos no ten a demasiado prop sito, y el de los hombres de la tele y el del enani [...]

    24. Agustina says:

      Murakami tiene eso de agregarte cosas totalmente extra as en cada una de sus historias pero que ah tienen perfecto sentido y creo que los cuentos son el escenario perfecto para eso Son cortos, no hay que explicar mucha cosa El autor es un muy buen cuentista y sta es una interesante colecci n Los que m s me gustaron fueron The second bakery attackOn seeing the 100% perfect girl one beautiful April morningBarn burningTV peopleThe silenceThe elephant vanishesRecomiendo no leerla de corrido, sino ab [...]

    25. Amari says:

      I ve been deeply disappointed in Murakami before, and I seem to remember that they re always short stories that I have found useless But this collection floats my boat I agree with some reviews I ve read that complain of the lack of variety in the protagonists situations they re, almost to a one, loners, bored, alienated, and around 30 Most of them are experiencing some kind of freakish alteration in the world around them which, I take, we are meant to interpret as changes in themselves This kin [...]

    26. Nafiza says:

      Some of the stories are unsettling, some are sly, and yet others offer an intensely introspective look at the world we live in I have been reading Murakami for a long time and I can say with what little authority I have that this may be his finest work yet I don t know where I read this but he is on record as saying that he finds short stories fun to write than novels His style is meticulous with a keen eye for details which can sometimes translate as being tedious and repetitive in novels but [...]

    27. Ben Loory says:

      Sleep is one of the best stories I ve ever read I LOVE IT I also love Barn Burning and The Wind Up Bird and Tuesday s Women though neither quite reach the height and final impact of Sleep There are others I like a lot TV People and Last Lawn of the Afternoon which could be a Ron Carlson story and then some that I enjoyed but didn t seem to add up to a whole lot and then a very few I actively disliked The Dancing Dwarf and The Little Green Monster yick In general someone witnesses or is involved [...]

    28. Eadweard says:

      Rating it according to system, so two stars mean it was okay.I don t understand the Murakami love, two or three of the stories were good, the others I didn t care for, I always zone out whenever his characters start talking about food or popular western music, please give it a rest.

    29. Caroline says:

      THIS is the second book of Murakami s short stories I have read and I ve gotta say it was a bit of a mixed bag this time There were a few that I loved and a few that I really didn t like but overall it was quite an enjoyable reading experience The stories had spatterings of typical Murakami themes there was a nostalgic air about them, characters struggling with isolation and reflecting on the past A few of the stories dove a little further into magical realism than others which was fun Definitel [...]
