Book Review: The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami
I picked up the UK edition of Haruki Murakami’s The Strange Library in a bookstore last year. Its ambiguous cover immediately drew me in; I had heard of Murakami before, but never actually read him. Interested, I skimmed the first few pages to get a taste of what was in store. I ended up reading the whole thing in a 30-45 minute sitting.
To be honest, I didn’t know what I expected from The Strange Library. People had told me that Murakami had an unorthodox manner of writing and quite a unique literary voice.
