A brief note before we begin this review may or may not be revised later I ve written it while suffering from major jet lag literally traveled for 30 hours and went through a 11 hour time change in the process For all I know it may only make sense to me as the person who wrote it and be absolutely incomprehensible to everyone else If so consider it a rather parallel to the novel itself For those of you who have ever endeavored to write a novel I feel your pain That moment of putting everything into a work only to read it and realize that it sounded much better in your head I know the feeling well I have numerous stories stored away in a box because part of me loves them but also needs to keep them far away and out of sight Those of you who give those a read every once in a while and wonder why bother let me offer one note of encouragement to you Murakami is pretty much an international literary rock star and he wrote this book first So you know there is hope Now that I ve offered that rather intimidating start let me say that this isn t really a bad book it s just not a very good one I fully admit that I gave it three stars on account of a fascination aspect and not because it is good It s interesting to see the start of an author I will come to respect in pure amateur mode I mean you see ideas he will go on to play with and perfect and there are little moments of genius here and there but this is not the Murakami I love This is very much someone still trying to find a voice It is pretty much the definition of a first novel it is mostly plotless yet still full of holes unanswered uestions a rambling nature and some just downright weird choices As someone who started reading Murakami with The Wild Sheep Chase it is uite interesting to see early versions of those characters it s also weird seeing how tonally different the first novel is compared to the third This strange little slice of life story will somehow evolve in a future book to a borderline metaphysical noir Is this a book I can recommend Only to those who already have a firm grasp on Murakami s work as it s mostly a curiosity something to read after you ve gone through his major works and want to see where many of the ideas began For those who fit into that category you ll probably find it a fascinating uick read

characters 風の歌を聴け Read 風の歌を聴け ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub N the June 1979 issue of Gunzo one of the most influential literary magazines. Haruki Murakami s first novel Hear the Wind Sing is like a lot of first novels in that it s unfocused rambling and mostly about the author and yet it s kinda compelling because of how well written it is There s no story to speak of The novel takes place within 3 weeks of the summer of 1970 where our nameless narrator in his early 20s bums around his small town He meets a wealthy spoilt brat called The Rat who sits in a bar reads Western novels and spouts pseudo intellectual nonsense He meets a young woman with nine fingers who works in a record shop The characters interact a sense of youthful directionless and vague hope sorta permeates the book and then it s over I ve read 11 of Murakami s books before this one and I definitely wouldn t recommend readers curious about the author to start here begin with Wind Up Bird Wild Sheep Chase or one of his short story collections like after the uake instead But if you re familiar with the author you ll notice a lot of things in this first novel that he ll go on to feature in many of his subseuent books Music especially jazz cats precise descriptions of meals emotionally detached people bookworms sad relationships with sad women loneliness and physically deformed characters None of the characters here could be called well rounded they re very one dimensional especially the female characters Murakami usually writes women uite poorly More often than not they re there as literary devices for the male characters to either learn something about the story they re in or to learn something about themselves it s the latter in this book However if the narrative leaves a lot to be desired the writing is at least very fluid accessible and renders the spare story with an ethereal elegance The pages fly by and that s a rare uality in a first novel Besides the overall lack of characterisation the writing annoyed me only a couple of times like when one character launches into a pages long speech about nothing Murakami failing to pass this off as casual conversation and the parts where a radio DJ rambles on the air were entirely needless The book definitely feels too slight it s a good example of style over substance though I can t help but admire the stylishness For a novel with no story great characters or memorable scenes or dialogue I didn t dislike Hear the Wind Sing The writing is much better than you d expect for a first novel and pulled me swiftly along to the end the talent is obvious and you can see the writer he ll become That said I d say it s really only for fans than casual readers with this book Murakami s clearly finding his voice and figuring out what he wants to write about which isn t always the best place for anyone to start Unfamiliar readers wanting to understand Murakami s popularity would do better to check out his later original and enthralling efforts when he incorporates magical realism into actual stories that go somewhere
