Killing CommendatoreI am a huge fan of Murakami s books and had been waiting impatiently for the translation and ublication in English Now Murakami usually conjures up alternative worlds and there are usually cats ear lobes jazz and lonely men cooking alone and with a little sex thrown in for good measure This book has few of the tropes the music is classical there is barely a cat in it and the sex is spurious to the story There is nothing about ear lobes eitherWhat there is is a strange world associated with a strange ainting and other unfinished art works and there there are lots of loose ends by the end of the nearly 700 Pages Lots Of Unfinished Story lots of unfinished story The book touches on ideas and metaphors The ideas don t uite last and the metaphors can be dangerous and i m still trying to decide if the book is a metaphor and if so for what the general aimlessness of life the strange help that we seem to receive when we most need it I don t know but I do know i found the book a little aimless and strangely unconcludedNot for me one of Murakami s best and I have read them all and loved most of them but it is still enjoyable and in Mama Ds pasta pizza partsage turningly compulsive Truth is Killing Commendatore is an excellent novel if you are a Murakami fan I have never before encountered an author whose works feel so The Expected One (Magdalene Line Trilogy, personal they are almost entities that generate moods and an atmosphere of total immersion With this book as with all the others my life wasut on hold and I was able to think of little else than wanting to return into the story s soft embrace Yes it s confirmed I suppose that Murakami isn t uite able to comprehend women as eual beings with humanity that arallels that of men For a 70 year old Japanese man that s erhaps not so unusual but considering the depth of understanding old Japanese man that s Aubrey Beardsley, The Man And His Work perhaps not so unusual but considering the depth of understanding shows for male his ownsyche it is terribly disappointing Literally every female character is set in a sexual context in this novel and judging by his Jazz Ukulele previous works I suppose sexuality is the only context Murakami can set women into even if they are blatantly asexual or their sexualisation is barly concealed due to their too young an age or most commonly they arerimarily sexual Off 13 providers then carers supporters cheerleaders for the main character I m a feminist not the kind that thinksole dancing is empowering btw but even though I rage at the atriarchy Murakami doesn t anger me He writes what he knows as honestly as he can and he isn t trying to hide his shortcomings too much It s easy to see how the range of emotions and rich inner life he describes is eually applicable to men and women it s just sad that Murakami isn t able to appreciate it himself Still this novel delivers in the way fans have come to expect and despite many reviews claiming a scattered and meandering narrative to my eyes this is nothing of the sort It is beautifully and deliberately crafted and apart from some repetition.

It s a tightly written story whose world you won t want to leave If you are just about to Sgt.
