Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

Novel, Bildungsroman by Haruki Murakami, Philip Gabriel (translator)


Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage is the long-awaited new novel—a book that sold more than a million copies the first week it went on sale in Japan—from the award-winning, internationally best-selling author Haruki Murakami.
Here he gives us the remarkable story of Tsukuru Tazaki, a young man haunted by a great loss; of dreams and nightmares that have unintended consequences for the world around us; and of a journey into the past that is necessary to mend the present. It is a story of love, friendship, and heartbreak for the ages.

Ein manchmal fesselndes Buch -- leider aber zu langatmig und detailverliebt, das zudem ohne Auflösung 'mitten in der "Handlung"' abbricht. Aber auf so etwas muss man sich bei Murakami gefasst machen. Das Buch wirkt wie 'lesbare Literatur' (also künstkerisch, aber noch so, dass auch Normalsterbliche eteas damit anfangen können).

Great book until the end. But the payoff couldn't equal the buildup.
