A tour-de-force of metaphysical reality, Kafka on the Shore is powered by two remarkable characters. At fifteen, Kafka Tamura runs away from home, either to escape a gruesome oedipal prophecy or to search for his long-missing mother and sister. And the aging Nakata, who never recovered from a wartime affliction, finds his highly simplified life suddenly upset. Their odyssey, as mysterious to us as it is to them, is enriched throughout by vivid accomplices and mesmerizing events. Cats and people carry on conversations, a ghostlike pimp employs a Hegel-quoting prostitute, a forest harbors soldiers apparently unaged since World War II, and rainstorms of fish fall from the sky. There is a brutal murder, with the identity of both victim and perpetrator a riddle. Yet this, like everything else, is eventually answered, just as the entwined destinies of Kafka and Nakata are gradually revealed, with one escaping his fate entirely and the other given a fresh start on his own.… (mais)

    The Infinities de John Banville (librorumamans)
    librorumamans: Like Kafka on the Shore, Infinities plays with multiple points of view, alternate realities, and riffs on other works (in this case Kleist's Amphitryon). Both Murakami and Banville tackle big ideas directly and indirectly through the structures of their books. Banville, in my opinion, pulls this off more coherently.… (mais)

Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami takes you into a magical world where people have feelings to express. The plot had a very unusual start, with the life of a 15-year-old boy. Murakami's writing is wonderful, capturing each character's emotions and depth. Nakata's character was the most different one. I just loved how the story finally connected itself with the happenings. But, somewhere, too many unanswered questions were left at the end. The world created by the author was unbelievable and wonderful. I wish this book would have never ended, as there are so many layers to the story.

Although I couldn't grasp some of Kafka's life, the book still made a wonderful impression. And the idea of traveling through a dream was just something else. Indeed, Murakami's writing leaves readers with lingering questions as he weaves together surreal elements and philosophical musings that can be captivating. Definitely, the book deserves 5 stars. ( )

Surrealistic page-turner where each of the two intertwined stories is as absorbing as the other and the text is peppered with music, philosophical and literary references, enough to create a new booklist. ( )
  featherbooks | May 7, 2024 |
I liked this book. I feel like it struck the right balance of weird magical realism and logical plot that you felt swept along by the story without being frustrated by the randomness (as in Wind Up Bird). I would only recommend this to people who like fiction, however, as nonfiction buffs will definitely find it tedious. ( )

"Kafka on the Shore" by Haruki Murakami is a puzzling and captivating novel that enlaces multiple narratives, blurring the lines between reality and dreams, and exploring themes of identity, loneliness, and the search for meaning. The premise is brilliant: Kafka Tamura, a teenage boy who runs away from home to escape his father's curse, and Nakata, an elderly man who lost his memory in a childhood accident and possesses the ability to communicate with cats. Filled with mysterious occurrences, symbolic imagery, and philosophical musings, Murakami's prose is richly atmospheric, drawing readers into a surreal world where magical realism and mundane reality coexist seamlessly while inviting the reader to ponder the nature of existence and the interconnectedness of all things. It’s strength is that it does not provide easy answers or neatly tie up its narrative threads. Murakami revels in ambiguity, leaving many questions unanswered and encouraging interpretation of the story's events in a unique and immersive way. ( )

I enjoyed this story, but there was too much gratuitous sex for my taste. ( )

The weird, stately urgency of Murakami's novels comes from their preoccupation with . . . internal problems; you can imagine each as a drama acted out within a single psyche. In each, a self lies in pieces and must be put back together; a life that is stalled must be kick-started and relaunched into the bruising but necessary process of change. Reconciling us to that necessity is something stories have done for humanity since time immemorial. Dreams do it, too. But while anyone can tell a story that resembles a dream, it's the rare artist, like this one, who can make us feel that we are dreaming it ourselves.

Maar net zoals in de rest van Murakami’s omvangrijke oeuvre blijft het niet bij het wegloop-realisme van de hoofdpersoon. Onverklaarbare wendingen, bovennatuurlijke verschijnselen, irreële toevalligheden en onwaarschijnlijke personages roepen bij de nuchtere lezer al snel de vraag op waarom hij in godsnaam maar blijft dóórlezen.

Kafka Tamura se va de casa el día en que cumple quince años. La razón, si es que la hay, son las malas relaciones con su padre, un escultor famoso convencido de que su hijo habrá de repetir el aciago sino del Edipo de la tragedia clásica, y la sensación de vacío producida por la ausencia de su madre y su hermana, a quienes apenas recuerda porque también se marcharon de casa cuando era muy pequeño. El azar, o el destino, le llevarán al sur del país, a Takamatsu, donde encontrará refugio en una peculiar biblioteca y conocerá a una misteriosa mujer mayor, tan mayor que podría ser su madre, llamada Saeki. Si sobre la vida de Kafka se cierne la tragedia –en el sentido clásico–, sobre la de Satoru Nakata ya se ha abatido –en el sentido real–: de niño, durante la segunda guerra mundial, sufrió un extraño accidente que lo marcaría de por vida. En una excursión escolar por el bosque, él y sus compañeros cayeron en coma; pero sólo Nakata salió con secuelas, sumido en una especie de olvido de sí, con dificultades para expresarse y comunicarse... salvo con los gatos. A los sesenta años, pobre y solitario, abandona Tokio tras un oscuro incidente y emprende un viaje que le llevará a la biblioteca de Takamatsu. Vidas y destinos se van entretejiendo en un curso inexorable que no atiende a razones ni voluntades. Pero a veces hasta los oráculos se equivocan.
 
”Et stort verk, men likevel lekende lett lesning.”

"... in everybody's life there's a point of no return. And in a very few cases, a point where you can't go forward anymore. And when we reach that point, all we can do is quietly accept the fact. That's how we survive."
"Listening to Fournier's flowing, dignified cello, Honshino was drawn back to his childhood. He used to go to the river everyday to catch fish. Nothing to worry about back then. he reminisced. Just live each day as it came. As long as I was alive, I was something. That was just how it was. But somewhere along the line it all changed. Living turned me into nothing. Weird...People are born in order to live, right? But the longer I've lived, the more I've lost what's inside me–and ended up empty. And I bet the longer I live, the emptier, the more worthless, I'll become. Something's wrong with this picture. Life isn't supposed to turn out like this! Isn't it possible to shift direction, to change where I'm headed?"
The air was damp and stagnant, with a hint of something suspicious, as if countless ears were floating in the air, waiting to pick up a trace of some conspiracy.
I'd never imagined that trees could be so weird and unearthly. I mean, the only plants I've ever really seen or touched till now are the city kind--neatly trimmed and cared-for bushes and trees. But the ones here--the ones living here--are totally different. They have a physical power, their breath grazing any humans who might chance by, their gaze zeroing in on the intruder like they've spotted their prey. Like they have some dark, prehistroric, magical powers. Like deep-sea creatures rule the ocean depths, in the forest trees reign supreme. If it wanted to, the forest could reject me--or swallow me up whole. A healthy amount of fear and respect might be a good idea.
There's only one kind of happiness, but misfortune comes in all shapes and sizes.
