What I'm Reading Right Now #39



Quote of the day: 
We each have a sixth sense that is attuned to the oneness dimension in life, providing a means for us to guide our lives in accord with our ideas. -Henry Reed 


My current book read for the week is by Haruki Murakami who has featured a lot in my reading list for the past year. This is one of his earliest books, and I dare say one of his finest.  In 'A Wild Sheep Chase,' which is the third book in the so-called 'Trilogy of the Rat' is an independent sequel to Pinball, 1973 and Hear the Wind Sing.

From the start A Wild Sheep Chase plunges you deep into the world of the central character, where business and politics, imbalances and relationships, belief and actuality, come into play.

It revolves around a young individual who leaves all he has ever known behind in pursuit of the unknown and unexplained. Its typical Murakami, for anyone used to his writing style already.

  11. You clearly enjoy reading this Man's books. I hope the individual found what he was seeking in the unknown.


    Asides my texts, I'm currently reading "Man, Woman and Child" by Erich Segal.
    The book is an absolute mind puzzler, I highly recommend it (and him). It's his second book I'm reading, after "Acts of Faith", and it's quite old (first published in 1980).
    Lately, I've been submerged in a few books from my Father's Library unboxing his treasures is quite a delight!

    (Kai, I always talk too much on this your blog Oga, and, only here..).

    I just re-read Old Man and the Sea. I wanted to find out if I still thought it was one of H's best books. And, yes. It is.

  21. Apparently Japanese writers come up with lots of cultural mores that others find different from Western ideas and it follows can turn out to be very interesting.

  22. Wish you happy springtime with books.

  23. Reading, or trying to read would be more correct, As Rights Go By, an exhibition booklet by Silvia Beck, James Bridle, George Drivas and others. It confirms my impression, I mean conviction, that we are giving away our rights hard-won by our ancestors, for a mess of pottage.

  24. I have seen Haruki Murakami's book everywhere, I should get one of his books once school is over for the year.

  27. Hello Blogoratti, A Wild Sheep Chase does sound interesting. Thanks for the recommendation. I do think we have a sixth sense, maybe even a seventh and eighth. :-) Have a fine week ahead.
