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.

Not what i expected ..

I am a great fan of Haruki. He casts a spell on the reader through the complexity of his plots and his ability to mix reality with fantasy. Nowegian Wood turned out to be more about young adult sexuality than anything else. Parts of the novel gave the feeling that it was written by a novice and not a master story-teller. I misssed the master who wrote Kafka On The Shore.
