Should I get Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami? (10)

I saw it in a bookstore and it seems like a nice read, but I did not have the time to get it. It was pretty cheap. Should I go back and get it?

Maybe. I really liked the short story which was its germ, it provoked in me an enjoyable feeling of languor. A lot of other people seem to like the novel. Some people probably dislike it. When a creative work isn't out-and-out terrible it's hard to say what the interaction between the work and the audience will produce, and given I don't know anything about you, this being an anonymous image board, it's even more useless.

My only encounter with this book is as follows:

>working with a colleague, she just brought a grey import car from Japan
>open the glovebox and to her surprise there's a copy of Norwegian Wood inside

It's pretty decent. Nothing special, but I had a cozy time reading it, and there was a good moment or two where some nice feelings crept in. It's a 3/5, but a solid 3/5.

If you haven't read anything by Murakami, a good starter (although it isn't indicative of his other work) is Hardboiled Wonderland.
