Journal History

Hey watchers, I'm not sure if anyone reads these anymore, but I thought I would recommend some books that I've read recently, as books are the most steadfast, loving, understanding things that I can give you.


Norwegian Wood - Haruki Murakami - This is the first Murakami I've read and I wasn't disappointed. Though I'm told it's a departure from his usual style I really enjoyed it. He has a great feeling for the balance of light and heavyness, and I felt very endeared to all the characters, although they're stylised to a point it's very easy to imagine them all living in the real world. I think the erotic scenes are overemphasized by reviewers as they're really only a backdrop for all of this desire and misery to play out against.

Heaven's Net is Wide - Lian Hearn - This book came to me completely by chance and I picked it up on a whim, but man, it really impressed me. Lian has an excellent hold of the culture and tradition of feudal Japan and you can see from her writing that she also has a deep love of the country. This is a big book clocking in at six hundred pages but it's really a joy to read, with lots of action and twists. There's also a nice religious subtext that I hope is explored more fully in later books.

The Little Prince - Antoine De-Saint Exupery - This is a classic that I've been meaning to get around to for a while and I'm very glad that I did. It IS technically a kid's books but I enjoyed it a lot on an adult level, it seems very simple but I think there's a lot of depth in there if you take the time to think about it. There's plot but it's quite sparse and much of it is based on the character of the prince and the people that he meets. The ending is also very beautiful and heartbreaking.
