The New Novel by Haruki Murakami

The credits read as follows:

Wonderful..magical and outlandish.........  Daily Mail

A magnificently bewildering achievement....Brilliantly conceived, bold in its surreal scope, sexy and driven by a snappy plot...Independent on Sunday.

Hypnotic, spell binding...The Times

Murakami has always been out front, riding the zeitgeist, investigating his work with an aura of the surreal, uncanny anf fantastic....Washington Post

Finally The novel delivers gloriously...inventive and alluring so claims David Mitchell of the Guardian.

Well I took this book on holiday and this is my account of it.

"Utter rubbish. As for the Independent's review, the only sex was when mari is asked if she has had sex, she replies. No. I havet not. He then says that's OK. Its OK to be a virgin.   Yup that was the sexy part.

A most unsatifying read quite unlike Norweigan Wood.  Page after page of meaningless prose wrapped up in the most bizarre and pointless dialogue.

Eri has been asleep without stirring for three, not a coma we are told. Well if that is possible,  I think Haruki Murikami should do the same.

I rate this short novel with one star. After all I know the effort put into writing, no matter what comes out.

Does anyone agree vith me?
