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 Border, West of the Sun.
There's something so incredibly magical that happens whenever I read one of his books. It's like waking up from a magnicifent dream world that wraps you up and takes you captive. His words are absolutely gorgeous. I really wish I knew Japanese so that I could read some of his books not translated. I can't wait to read more! I want to read Hard-Boiled Wonderland and Dance Dance Dance next :)
