Read-along: Haruki Murakami’s The Windup Bird Chronicle

wind-up-bird-read-along-button-2013-finalSo I signed up for my first read-along of the year. Ti over at Book Chatter is hosting a Haruki Murakami read-along in April. It’s a read-along of The Wind-up Bird Chronicle, probably Murakami’s most famous book. I’ve owned since 2008 and have been postponing reading it because I was told that it would be good to have read a few of his other works to have an idea about what kinds of topics he deals with in his books and get an idea of how he write.

Well, I’ve read several of his books now and I’ve loved them so much that Murakami is oneof my favorite authors. I really love his works – both the magical realism ones and the straightforward ones. The Wind-up Bird Chronicle is one of the magic ones and I am really looking forward to reading is. I’m also told that 1Q84 is having parts or characters in common with Wind-up Bird so I’m considering reading that afterwards.

The read-along is a casual one with no fuss. You can read more about it here and sign up, if you feel like it.

  1. Thank you for posting about the read-along. I am so freakin’ excited about it. I LOVE his writing but when I finish I always have to run out and find someone who’s read the book so we can discuss it. It’s going to be so much fun to have people to talk to about it.
