After Dark por Haruki Murakami

  1. 30
    The Elephant Vanishes: Stories por Haruki Murakami (Miss-Owl)
  2. 00
    Number9Dream por David Mitchell (isigfethera)
    isigfethera: Both are slightly surreal coming-of-age-ish stories set in Tokyo. I think there is some similarity in style too.
  3. 00
    Tongue por Kyung Ran Jo (freddlerabbit)
    freddlerabbit: Jo's style has been compared with Murakami's - I disagree, but the work Tongue bears the most resemblance to is After Dark.
  4. 00
    The Lost Episodes of Beatie Scareli por Ginnetta Correli (Jacey25)
    Jacey25: another novel where things are vaguely unsettling and the concept of being watched on television takes an interesting twist- a fantastic quick read

I honestly don't get the ending. Overall it was a good imaginative plot, well thought of but the ending? I would have thought miraculously Eri awoken from her slumber by Mari but instead it left me hanging. Jeez...

Here's my full review:

I don't think I really understood the ending... ( )

Takes place in the course of one night. I usually like books with no action and characters that just talk. This one started off good. I even laughed out loud when the 19-yo who was trying to read her book in a Dennys, but was now becoming more and more annoyed by this guy who recognized her as some hot girl’s little sister and then decided he could just plop down at her table and start talking about how her sister was a real beauty and what a cute girl she herself had been, asks him, “Is there something about your personality that makes you prefer the past tense?”

And then he was going on and on about how he always orders the chicken salad and crispy toast but they never, ever manage to make it crispy. Then he asks her a question about herself or her family or something and she’s like “Are you asking me to explain it to you here and now in twenty-five words or less while you eat your chicken salad?”

That made me laugh, too, but then it was all down hill after that. ( )

Of course I liked this, it's Murakami, and he writes fabulously, even in translation. But it's probably my least favorite of all the ones of his I've read. Not very novel-like; more like an extended short story - it didn't feel to me like there was any resolution to a lot of things that happen, and it leaves a lot of questions unanswered about events that occur. So kind of unsatisfying. ( )

I picked this up from my local library after reserving it. To be honest it couldn't really have come at a better time because my mojo was fading a bit. I had started Last Exit to Brooklyn by Hubert Selby Jr but for some reason it I just wasn't feeling it so I decided to return it for another day. It would seem that Murakami just does it for some people and not others. I definitely sit in the 'does it' camp. I saw a review where the reviewer said that Murakami makes connection in his brain that no other author does and I think that sums up how I feel about his work pretty well.

Like his other books that I have read, his characters make me feel for them on a emotional level that few others do. His writing creates a very visual and magical world in my head. I find it quite difficult to put into words how this feels to me but I suspect that some people will know what I mean.

The story happens at night, a time when most people are in bed and as a consequence night time has its own feel and energy. Murakami portrays this very well, its a time when things go on that remain unseen to most and also when the oddest of people are drawn together in equally unusual ways. As important as the things which are described in minute detail are the things that go unexplained. For example, the whole situation with Mari and the way it is handled is very unusual and yet it works really well.

The only reason why I didn't give this a 5 is that I wanted it to last a little longer. At 201 pages it is a pretty short book, I feel that another 50 pages would have allowed some of the story to be tidied up into a more complete ending. The mystery of it all is part of its charm though I suppose. I have already reserved 2 more Murakami books and I cant wait to get stuck into them. ( )

Många kommer nog att störa sig på den för att den är osammanhängande och saknar ett riktigt slut. Själv gillar jag den just därför, även om det finns en del annat att klaga på.

Murakamis romaner brukar alltid bli mer än summan av sina olika, ofta rätt banala beståndsdelar. Innan natten faller är dock ett undantag som inte blir mer än en, låt vara tidvis rätt så underhållande, smått förvirrad färd från mörker till ljus. Den är helt enkelt inte så bra.
adicionada por Jannes | editarUpsala nya tidning, Sebastian Johans (Mar 26, 2012)
 
Det är en stil flytande mellan genrer och upplevelser som Murakami driver sina underliga och vackra världar med, som smälter ihop myter och andeväsen med socialrealistiska plågor som kvinnohat, maffiahot, barnsexhandel och korruption.

"A bittersweet novel that will satisfy the most demanding literary taste... It reminds us [that] while we sleep, the world out there is moving in mysterious and unpredictable ways."
adicionada por GYKM | editarSan Francisco Chronicle
 
"Potent and disturbing... He reminds us that the essence of horror in the post-modern narrative is not some gothic extravagance, but the realities that await us outside our doorstep."

People's memories are maybe the fuel they burn to stay alive...if I didn't have that fuel, if I didn't have these memory drawers inside of me, I would've snapped a long time ago...It's because I can pull the memories out of the drawers when I have to - the important ones and the useless ones - that I can go on living this nightmare of a life. I might think I can't take it anymore, that I can't go on anymore but one way or another I get past that.
