    Description

    Norwegian Wood is a story of loss and growing sexuality by Japanese writer Haruki Murakami.

    Summary of the Book

    Set in Tokyo in the 1950s, this novel tells the story of Toru and Naoko. Toru is a quiet and abnormally serious young college student who loves Naoko, a beautiful and introspective young woman. Their relationship and passion are put to the test by the memory of their best friend, who died years ago. While Toru is satisfied at college, adapting to the life as well as the loneliness and isolation he faces there, Naoko begins to feel the unbearable pressures and responsibilities of life eat away at her. She draws back into her own world, and Toru begins to have feelings for another fiercely independent and sexually liberated woman. This is the story of their love, and their losses together, and Toru’s coming-of-age when he discovers his first true heroic love.

    Norwegian Wood

    Beautiful book. It is like poetry, but only in prose passages. The flow is smooth, the transitions flow beautifully.

    One of the best books I've read

    I have read at least four to five books of Murakami before Norwegian Wood. I can say without any exaggeration that this is Murakami at his finest. Reading any of Murakami's books simulate your mind and soul, this one maybe more than the others.. There are so many quirky, poignant and wonderfully relatable moments in this book.. All written in the simplest prose.. You would not regret this buy!

    A cult book from Japan, which could have been a story of any urban society if not for Suicides

    I enjoyed reading this book a lot, probably one of the very few that I consider as un-put-down-able but not for it's language or the thoughts and ideas but just for the fast track pace in a love story where Murakami was more of a surgeon than an author, cutting well developed characters out of the book with two or three lines. Nice and novel style, I liked it. Very beautifully created the natural atmosphere of the sanatorium, the places they went out for walks and fun. The emotions were high ...

    Excellent dealing with human realtionship

    This is the second book from Murakami, which I read. I'm simply amazed with the flow of the story. Murakami has great strength in visualizing us with his narration. I 'm able to relate to the places , the underground eateries, bar and so on. The contradiction within self and the different relationship looked so normal that you definitely will be engrossed until you complete. Its a treat to read.
