    One thought on “În noapte”

    1. Murakami is not a great author for passive readers If your main interest in fiction is plot and story, and especially if you tend to be the sort of reader who plows straight through a book and then thinks about it only after you re done, After Dark is going to be unsatisfying.To me, Murakami is a great author for teaching you how to read forgive me proactively He works a lot with impressions and mood, so that it s most rewarding when the reader stops after every few sentences and chews on what s [...]

    2. Good ol Murakami Every time I read him, I feel my reasons for choosing a book as company over a real person, legitimized again What is reading, but, a singular form of one sided communication An author sends us an encoded message, crafted with precision and a deep empathy arising out of their understanding of the world and humanity at large And we, in turn, decode it and instantly feel a pull on the invisible umbilical cord linking us to this person we have never met and, possibly, will never me [...]

    3. This really isn t a novel to be rushed This is a novel to be savoured and appreciated, and I think this quote here captures a large part of the book She reads with great concentration Her eyes rarely move from the pages of the book a thick hardback A bookstore wrapper hides the title from us Judging from her intent expression, the book might contain challenging subject matter Far from skimming, she seems to be biting off and chewing it one line at a time The words and the language seem very simp [...]

    4. Original Review March 8, 2011A Midwinter Night s Tale After Dark is probably the easiest Murakami novel to read At 201 pages, it s not difficult to finish in one session.It s also close to what you would call high concept in the film industry Its execution is not much than its conception.All of the action takes place from 11 56pm to 6 52am on a midwinter night, or less after dark when the days are shortest and the nights are longest.Hidden MeaningMurakami s writing is stripped back, simple, pr [...]

    5. Eye s mark the shape of the city There is something about Murakami that ignites connections in my brain that I don t know what to do with Such as the scene with the man on a television screen staring into a real room with a girl lying on the bed He is said to be looking in from the other side Murakami uses this same phrase when a main character is looking into a mirror When she gazes at herself in the mirror she is said to be looking in from the other side There are several scenes which beg for [...]

    6. I wake up My room bathes in the light of the streetlamp I m too tired to look around I close my eyes again but soon feel in my heart that the darkness I so desire has fled It hides under my bed, in the corners of the city and of my mind It refuses to manifest itself in its most majestic and generous form, that of the great blanket that covers the waking world, that of the wide gate that allows passage to the land of dreams The splashes of darkness only serve to irritate me in their small portion [...]

    7. A delightful excursion into the mentality and rhythms of night in the city and the perspectives it gives to the meaning of our daytime lives This 2007 novel contains the essence of Murikami s weird and wonderful ways in a pure and restrained form We fly around observing a set of characters as with an invisible camera, neutral and unjudging Time ticks down explicitly through the night though the pacing of life at night has a timeless quality The characters actions are muted and reflective, their [...]

    9. My full review of this book is larger than GoodReads word count limitations Find it at the Chicago Center for Literature and Photography cclapcenter You know what I think she says That people s memories are maybe the fuel they burn to stay alive Whether those memories have any actual importance or not, it doesn t matter as far as the maintenance of life is concerned They re all just fuel Advertising fillers in the newspaper, philosophy books, dirty pictures in a magazine, a bundle of ten thousan [...]

    10. Clearly his efforts are becoming and of a nuisance because you must read his entire body of work, you need to trudge through latter stuff, like this one, Verrrry Minor Murakami The best thing The open endedness in some of the various hallucinations tableaux The most irritating His 1 page per American reference, and the halo to the Japanese master of All Crap Things USA newly discovered lit genre c.a 2016

    11. It s true, though time moves in its own special way in the middle of the night I read Murakami s After Dark exclusively at night time Capricious as it might sound, I do believe that most of it I read after midnight Darkness encroaching all around, only a dim desk lamp to illuminate my surroundings Silence engulfing the atmosphere, sometimes unbearable, often intoxicating A cup of coffee beside me, a platter of peanuts in front, I relished every moment of this novel Why I am captivated by nightti [...]

    12. Another night has passed by and the day is upon us, telling from the light it is still early morning and from our viewpoint we are looking down on a city, we start to float towards a neighbourhood and pick out a house at random We are now in the back garden of the property where two cats roam and can hear the sound of birds singing in the trees, we move in the direction of a second story window where the curtains are still closed, we enter The first thing we notice is a man sat up in bed who app [...]

    13. I didn t like the book very much It read like something he tossed off, like it was a book between books, like a book to satisfy a contractual obligation the literary equivalent of a B sides collection, or maybe a greatest hits collection, only not very good.There wasn t anything very compelling about the characters They were wooden, and not very fleshed out, like vaguely romanticized caricatures.The narrative suffered I m guessing because of the translation there were details here and there that [...]

    14. It s a clever little tale about night people, dreams of all kinds , and subtle humor, mixed with grand and interesting detail in the style of so much horror fiction and a brooding mostly off screen terror that lurks in the night.Did I mention it s Japanese Sure, it should be kinda obvious from such a big name like Murakami, but this is, after all, my first foray into his works What can I say I thought it was pretty damn great I didn t have any expectations, so I just let myself flow with all the [...]

    15. I have a strange relationship with Japan both of my daughters became fascinated with Japan as children and both learnt Japanese Then one of them went to Japan as an exchange student and then both of them studied Japanese at university, the other one then going to study at Tokyo University for a year Now both of them work at a Japanese travel agency At the same time we also have had a Japanese exchange student stay with us well, with my ex wife And so my Japanese daughter s name is Eri which bec [...]

    16. Murakami haunts me His words The images he uses to convey his message His characters Blended together, these elements make for a surreal reading experience that is both fantastic and illusory On one page you have a straight forward narrative of life during the wee hours of the night in Japan But on the other page, a journey is taking place Where this journey will end is anyone s guess From a sleeping sister to a brothel to a kid that plays in a jazz band to a woman searching for her relationship [...]

    17. Just a comment Murakami s After Dark is first and foremost a cinematic book The story takes place in Tokyo, but as Borges once said to Gabriel Nachmias Athens, New York, London all of them are the same, after dark By the same token, we may say that After Dark is set during a single night in a post industrial metropolis One night is enough time for Murakami, probably because every night is the same in metropolis Although Borges is not explicitly mentioned in the book, Murakami makes Godard s Alph [...]

    18. If you opened this book up at any page without first looking at its cover you would still know immediately who the author was Haruki Murakami has such a distinctive style it could be no one else This particular book is very short and in my opinion not the best he has written I loved the way he evokes those dark hours between midnight and dawn but there is less than usual substance to the book and an awful lot of mystery which is never solved I think I needed a few chapters and a little bit res [...]

    19. Cuando se esconde el Sol y se enciende la Luna, la mayor a de nosotros se apaga, se pierde en el mundo de los sue os Pero hay otros que tienen como aliado a la noche Entre el silencio de la oscuridad, encuentran la fuerza para gritar Buen libro de Murakami Algo experimental, con una prosa madura y atractiva.

    20. I think this book is great Murakami entrance test It s short and bit simpler than his other works but in no way worse so if you like this one chances are you will love his notable works.

    21. Ah me I love Murakami This is only the fifth book of his I ve read but they never disappoint I started with The Wind Up Bird Chronicle, which I read when I lived in Japan Seemed fitting Followed up with A Wild Sheep Chase, Dance Dance Dance and Underground, a non fiction book where he collected and told the stories of survivors from the Tokyo Subway gas attack I have on my shelf I plan to read every single book of his.After Dark is definitely one of his approachable books It was almost normal [...]

    22. After Dark is the first book by Haruki Murakami that I ve read I was warned by many that I would not enjoy it But they re all delusional and wrong.After Dark isn t a traditional novel It isn t a plot driven story and in fact, not much actually happens After Dark takes place in Tokyo over a period of seven hours It begins with Mari Asai, sitting and reading her book in a Denny s in the middle of the night An old acquaintance sees her and reacquaints himself The boy, Takahashi, eats at Mari s tabl [...]
