exploration . review :: Kafka on the Shore (Murakami)

So I feel weird “reviewing” a work of fiction…because something just doesn’t make sense about using conscious thought to evaluate an art form. So I’ll do my best to share my impression, why I think it’s totally hip, and some things I think would be cool to explore as a result of reading this book. What did you think of this book?

And yes, mighty thanks to a few of my friends who suggested Murakami. My experience while reading Kafka is something like surreal, vibrant, in-the-present perception of life. Murakami’s characters feel so real, his sometimes “strange” situations feel real. There is much about presence, about experiencing the Now, that moves through this book – and reminds me of philosophy that I’ve been exploring lately from Eckart Tolle, Susan Jeffers and David Lynch.

Ok, that’s all I can say. This book is grippingly hard to put down…highly recommended. Here are a few things I would like to explore after reading:
