  1. FOR AMUSEMENT ONLYExtra Ball at 600,000 pointsFREE PLAY3 BALLS PER GAMEMy first exposure to Murakami was in my early college years I checked out A Wild Sheep Chase Boku 3 one summer from a military library and after I read it, but before I returned it, the library had mysteriously burned down I m not sure if I still owe the library a late fee or not I had no way to return the book, and after reading it, I didn t ever want to I saved it from the fire I saved it from oblivion It was now mine.Both [...]


  2. When I find a new to me author and dig their work, two things normally happen I seek out everything they ve written and buy it all up Next, I do some research I find out which titles are their least favorite and or which titles have the lowest overall fan approval rating here on Reads of the Good Because of this, my experiences are usually predictable Fifty million Elvis fans can t be wrong Right If I start with the shittiest stuffs, I m bound to have shitty experiences, at least at first I expe [...]


  3. P rdida y soledad son los dos elementos principales de estos dos relatos Es un libro sobre el movimiento de la existencia, que quita, reencuentra, vuelve a quitar, nos deja en lugares que queremos, nos saca de all y nos estrella contra uno que no queremos nos obliga a abandonar sin despedidas y volver para partir Y nosotros, como pobres v ctimas del tiempo, tenemos que resistir Porque la vida es eso resistencia.Se pierden personas que amamos.Se pierden personas que no llegamos a conocer pero que [...]


  4. My first book in September.My first Murakami.Murakami s first novel la sBefore becoming a novelist Murakami was owning a jazz bar and during breaks he has writing these two novellas They are part of a four book series with a common protagonist, the Rat.I don t know if it was wise to start with my Murakami experience by reading his first novels instead of something well known, but many people said that these books contain seeds in the germination phase of some of his most well known books, which [...]


  5. If you are a fan of Murakami s and are interested in finding out how his writing career started, then this petite book is a book for you Wind Pinball features two novellas which were the very first stories that Murakami wrote in his kitchen, late in the night The stories are somewhat quirky and incoherent, and it s evident that they re written by an author starting out But at the same time, they contain clear traits and similarities to some of Murakami s future novels which turned out to become [...]


  6. Eh It wasn t bad It was just okay.Nothing much happens, in typical Murakami style Which I don t normally mind, actually I really enjoy books with very little plot, but it was just kind of dull in this.And god I know Murakami is sexist a lot of the time in his books, but it was over the top in this one Seriously the twins in Pinball 1973 seemed to have literally no purpose other than to provide the narrator with a couple of feelings Oh, and to have sex with him and make him food and coffee Yawn T [...]


  7. Pinball was very good and written in the style that most Murakami readers fans would recognise and enjoy However Wind felt unfinished, confusing and felt like it was written by someone else.


  8. I think the reason I am so drawn to Murakami right now is that he is writing my feelings There are a lot of really painful things going on in my life right now and Murakami captures the feelings I ve been having so well His characters are so relatable that I feel like they are me when I read this book While Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball 1973 really weren t about anything, and nothing happened, I don t even care I just felt this novel These 2 short stories, and Norwegian Wood, have stayed with m [...]


  9. 2 starsEasily the best part of this two novella collection his very first written published output, written in the 1970s is Haruki Murakami s introduction, wherein he tries to explain the epiphany to switch his career focus from bar owner to novelist he receives from watching a Yakult Swallows baseball game Not unlike the epiphany to stop chain smoking and become a marathon runner he relates in his What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, written long after this Murakami completists will not [...]


  10. I m sure a lot of people choosing to read this book are aware that Murakami did not originally believe these were worthy of translation, as he wrote them at a time where he was discovering who he was as an author while owning a jazz bar I would have to disagree Before I move forward I want to say that I d rate Hear the Wind Sing at five stars, and put Pinball, 1973 down for four It is easy to notice the unpolished parts of Wind in comparison to Murakami s other works, and though I d never recomm [...]


  11. By pure chance my first encounter with the authors I came to love most was never through their early works In the case of Haruki Murakami, this was pure luck Because if Hear the Wind Sing had been my first novel of his, I hardly ever would have read a second one More than anything else, Hear the Wind Sing is a series of atmospheric snapshots it offers rather impressions than events Still, the novel does show quite some elements in which you can recognise your typical Murakami from his later nove [...]


  12. The thing is, although these are Murakami s first books, they were late being available in English This means that if you read them it is probably because you have already read Murakami and have already decided you enjoy his books You start these books predisposed to like them This was my second reading of them.In the cold light of day, trying to put that predisposition to one side, these are still good books of their genre Their genre being Murakami I freely admit to being a fan I have half a b [...]


  13. Mi era dor de un Murakami, iar aceste prime dou volume din trilogia obolanului nu m au dezam git Mul i se pl ng de lipsa unui fir narativ, dar pentru mine a fost ca i cum a fi stat ntr un bar i mi a fi notat pe un carne el tot felul de g nduri i idei care mi trec prin cap, av nd din c nd n c nd o conversa ie cu un prieten Murakami pur i simplu ia via a din jurul lui, tot fream tul sta zilnic n care aproape c nu se nt mpl nimic i l a terne pe h rtie.Auzi, n ai o fis C vreau s schimb muzica de la [...]


  14. Para dizer a verdade, devorava os grandes romances russos do s culo dezanove e os romances negros americanos, mas tenho de admitir que desconhecia a literatura japonesa contempor nea Decidi ent o come ar a escrever um romance em l ngua inglesa, para ver no que resultava Em resultado disso, a prosa revelava se algo tosca e despojada por m, medida que me esfor ava por escrever assim, a escrita come ou a ganhar forma e encontrei o meu pr prio ritmo O nascimento da minha escrita mesa da cozinha, Har [...]


  15. Copy and pasting from my Twitter because it captures the inanity Ok so these two old ass Murakami novellas I m reading are wacky The first one, literally nothing happens except the narrator drinksa lot of beer, contemplates the meaning purpose of writing, and dates a girl with 9 fingersdness and regret galoreYET I still found it ENTIRELY COMPELLING somehow Much better than Colorless Tsukuru.The second novella is about a translator who wakes up one morning to find twins sleeping in his bed and th [...]


  16. Hear the Wind Sing and Pinball, 1973 are Murakami s first two novels, although really novellas I read them out of curiousity, to see how he started out, rather than expecting much, and mild curiosity is about what I got out of them.Hear the Wind Sing is a straightforward story with none of the oddity or surreality of Murakami s later books The story moves quickly although little occurs The characters are opaque and don t offer much to care about My biggest beef with it is the pretentious title, [...]


  17. Seitdem ich meinen ersten Murakami in den H nden gehalten und mich ein wenig n her mit dem wundersamen Autor befasst hatte, war ich unfassbar traurig dar ber, dass seine Erstlingswerke nie aus dem Japanischen bersetzt wurden Gerade die ersten Zeilen, die ihm quasi den Weg zur Ber hmtheit gepflastert haben, waren einfach diejenigen, die mich am meisten interessierten, von denen ich unbedingt wissen wollte, zu welcher Geschichte sie sich zusammenf gen w rden und so machte ich buchst blich Luftspr [...]


  18. Reading Haruki Murakami s two earliest works, I was brought back to the situation he describes in his introduction being at a baseball game and being struck by the realization that he thought he could write a novel My thoughts went back to 1990 and seeing Bernie Williams play for the Albany Colonie Yankees, a class AA minor league team It was obvious to me and, I m sure to others , that Bernie Williams had all of the skills and tools to become a major league ball player they just had to be devel [...]

  20. Ojal no hubiera estado tan ocupada para haberlo le do m s r pidamente, pero a Murakami me gusta leerle despacio, qu le vamos a hacer.Me han gustado las dos novelas cortas, pero se nota mucho que eran sus primeras veces enfrent ndose al folio en blanco y no han tenido, a mi parecer, tanta direcci n como tienen sus otros libros, que ya escribi cuando contaba con m s experiencia en el campo Pero, incluso aunque a veces parezca que son simples notas de un primer borrador, resultan muy curiosas de le [...]


  21. I can t do it any I like the idea of reading all of Murakami s published works, but I don t think it s worth it if I m forcing myself to pick it up I read about 100 pages of Hear the Wind Sing, and I understand why for a long time, Murakami resisted the reprinting of these books in English It is somehow neither plot nor character driven, and I m finding it slow and dry It doesn t have the same atmosphere or whimsy of his other novels I understand that he hadn t developed his voice yet, but this [...]


  22. Wells, cats, fetishised body parts, a certain magical realism and melancholy, these self proclaimed kitchen table novels are clearly the work of Murakami despite being his first attempts at writing, yet are far from the unreadable, embarrassing juvenelia not fit for republishing he once claimed them to be Let him rake in the big bucks for this by all means, it s pretty good anyway.


  23. Hierbei handelt es sich um Murakamis erste Werke, die er mit einem rundum gelungenen Vorwort einleitet, durch das einem so einiges klar wird Die erste Geschichte, Wenn der Wind singt , fand ich absolut grandios und einfach typisch Murakami Die zweite konnte mich nicht ganz so aus den Socken hauen, sie war sehr berspitzt und diffus erz hlt Alles in allem sollte man, gerade, wenn man Murakami mag, auch unbedingt zu diesem Band greifen


  24. Finalmente riesco a leggere le prime due opere scritte da Haruki Murakami e non vi nascondo l emozione Ritrovare il suo stile stato come sentirsi a casa propria, seduti a bere una tazzina di caff e fumando una sigaretta Entrambe le opere le ha scritte, come dice lui stesso nella bella introduzione, di notte sul tavolo della cucina quando rientrava dal lavoro con la moglie avevano un bar Quando fin il primo romanzo che in realt pi un racconto decise di partecipare a un concorso letterario e, senz [...]


  25. Wind Pinball Two Novels by Haruki Murakami, like much of Murakami s work defies simple description and are to be enjoyed for the sheer poetry of his prose Murakami tells complex tales of thought and relationships and through the twisted mirror of his imagination, we glimpse these worlds that border our own There s no such thing as a perfect piece if writing Just as there s no such thing as perfect despair Wind and Pinball are two short novels that center on the lives of an unnamed narrator and h [...]


  26. Questo volume raccoglie i primi due libri di Murakami, Ascolta la canzone del vento primo racconto scritto dall autore, che vinse un premio per esordienti e lo spinse a continuare con la scrittura e Il flipper del 73 , secondo e ultimo dei libri scritti di notte dopo la chiusura del suo jazz bar.Racconti a lungo rimasti inediti in Occidente, visto che l autore non li riteneva all altezza delle opere successive, troppo acerbi e ingenui.Poi fortunatamente qualcosa cambiato, ha rivisto la sua posiz [...]


  27. Ouve a Can o do Vento N o tem muito que ver com os livros mais recentes de Murakami mas, dado que o primeiro, compreens vel que assim seja Bastante curto, quase que o li de uma assentada Os cap tulos t m de 3 a 4 p ginas nesta edi o, e os personagens e situa es descritas aparecem e desaparecem de forma repentina, n o levando a criar muita liga o ou empatia com aquilo que nos contado.Fl per, 1973Um pouco semelhan a do anterior, n o criou em mim aquela nsia de querer ler mais e saber mais do desen [...]


  28. Murakami s first piece of writing If somebody has read a few books by Murakakmi, they will perceive that his style of writing here is a little different from his major works like The Wind Up Bird Chronicle or Sputnik Sweetheart which have a lot of surrealist elements Although the main reason I love Murakami is these surrealist elements, I liked these two novellas too as I have found a lot of my thoughts about the world, alienation and the futility of life They are two fairly interesting novellas [...]


  29. 4 stelle per il secondo racconto, Flipper, il primo invece Vento non mi ha convinta.Sono i primi racconti di Murakami, cosa che soprattutto in vento si nota chiaramente.Comunque una lettura piacevole e credo anche utile per capire l evoluzione del Murakami attuale.
