Book of the week: South of the Border, West of the Sun by Murakami
A quick read that offers some great insight into life.
The main character goes through a series of romances all the while still in love with a girl he dated in high school. When she wanders back into his life, the family he has built for himself is called into question.
Murakami's true talent is expressing so perfectly with words what the average person wouldn't quite know how to say. If you haven't read any Murakami, this is a great place to start!
