Wind / Pinball by Haruki Murakami

wind-pinball-murakami

These two short novellas were the first works published by Murakami and are now back in print. They tell about a young guy and his friend, Rat, and touch on a lot of themes – friendship, loneliness, inertia, vocation, and love. I liked parts of both pieces because they hint at what Murakami’s writing will become. I also found them rambling, which his work can be. But I was more aware I was on a ride, rather than just enjoying it.
