    Kafka On The Shore

    The Most Brilliant Author I've Ever Read

    I can't even begin to explain how much I love Murakami's books. I first found him through a literary quotes community on Livejournal. The first book I read was Norweigan Wood, then I read Kafka on the Shore, and The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. I'm just about to start South of the...
