BRIEF THOUGHTS: HARUKI MURAKAMI 'AFTER DARK'
Reading a Haruki Murakami book is always a puzzle. It's a maze, but one you simply want to explore anyway. I completed the book, with a feeling of incompleteness and that's what continues to 'haunt' me. He leaves the readers to deal with the aftermath - the big questions, and the scattering of thoughts and ideas and let us make something of it from our own perspective, beliefs and experiences.
His writing and his thoughts are often elusive, yet so alluring. I can never truly put into words the feelings his writing evokes because, like his stories, they always seem somewhat fleeting, out of reach yet utterly compelling.
