    Now Reading

    Then why do you bother trying? Looks like he just ain't doing it for you. I liked Killing Commendatore better than Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki, but the second volume dragged on a bit, much like 1Q84 Vol. 3 with all the recaps. To me, his books are almost like background jazz in a way; I find that they reward a more casual, almost atmospheric reading. That's certainly not for everyone, and yeah, most of them could (and maybe should) be shorter, but I think a lot of that can be chalked up to cultural differences. I recently attended a Japanese award ceremony, and it was a very long, very formal event with lots of repetitions that kind of made me see his novels in a new light. I guess most people here will know this, but he has this method of writing in English and then translating it into Japanese. Not sure if he still applies it to all his novels, but it certainly honed his style.

  3. The Lighthouse. Pretty average buddy/odd couple movie, would have profited from either Jack Lemmon or Walter Matthau, preferably both. 5 Gollums/10 Smeagols, even though the sound designer did a decent job.
