Publisher Description

Stunning and elegiac, Norwegian Wood first propelled Haruki Murakami into the forefront of the literary scene.

Toru, a serious young college student in Tokyo, is devoted to Naoko, a beautiful and introspective young woman, but their mutual passion is marked by the tragic death of their best friend years before. As Naoko retreats further into her own world, Toru finds himself drawn to a fiercely independent and sexually liberated young woman.

A magnificent coming-of-age story steeped in nostalgia, Norwegian Wood blends the music, the mood, and the ethos that were the sixties with a young man’s hopeless and heroic first love.

Slow to start but worth it

My first taste of his work. The characters are deep, unpredictable, yet familiar. I love his storytelling, although I didn't care as much for the story itself.

Whole new perspective

Im 16 and i hate reading but this just opened my eyes. I was just reading the sample and it’s such a beautiful book all the detail and the way he displays them. He wrote this to the point that you feel like your in the mind of the character. Really recommend this and its coming from a kid that hates reading. For sure buying this book and many more.

Amazing

I love this book, a romance cursed by tragedy; this book describes the harsh unfair reality of life in such a romantic but sobering way. I can't think of a book id recommend more to young men than this one here.
