Essere inghiottita nel nulla attraverso lo schermo di un televisore apre un pericoloso spazio onirico nel uale rischia in ogni momento di scivolare la realtà In bilico tra luce e tenebre la soglia dove Murakami posiziona l'essere umano sempre sul punto di essere fagocitato da ualche oscura forza malevola Mari parte dal difficile rapporto con la sorella per ritrovare un'affettività rimossa E intanto scopre in Takahashi ragazzo solido e sensibile un valido interlocutore Tra i due giovani nasce l'abbozzo di un sentimento delicato che nella torbida atmosfera di uelle ore ha una rincuorante freschez. I wake up My room bathes in the light of the streetlamp I m too tired to look around I close my eyes again but soon feel in my heart that the darkness I so desire has fled It hides under my bed in the corners of the city and of my mind It refuses to manifest itself in its most majestic and generous form that of the great blanket that covers the waking world that of the wide gate that allows passage to the land of dreams The splashes of darkness only serve to irritate me in their small portions I open my eyes flip the switch and welcome the light in its hostile splendour I m not thirsty I m not hungry I m tired but unwilling to try to sleep unwilling to fight a battle that I ve already lost Milk Milk never uenches my thirst it never stills my hunger but I always have some in my fridge It soothes me on a level that is neither nutritional or hydrating Milk is said to strengthen the bones but I sense that it softens me Milk will manage to soften the hard edges of this sleepless night My feet are cold as I make my way to the fridge The floor hasn t been cleaned in a little while and I feel small grains of cluttered dust sand and crumbles cling to the soles of my feet I rub them off and feel a slight disgust with both myself and the floor I tip toe the rest of the way and I feel betterThe fridge is empty No milk No water No produce The light my nemesis of the night luxuriates in this deserted white scenery as a victorious conueror I close the door in displeasure but in the speed of the movement I see a flash of darkness I open the door again and notice a black book sitting on the middle shelf Wondering how it got there and how I missed it before I pick it up After Dark by Haruki Murakami Even though my feet still feel dirty I slip back into bed and start reading The mood is palpable from the first sentence onwards and I m taken away into a scenery where sympathetic darkness prevails allowing glimpses into its secrets Mirrors shadows cats and dead television sets become gateways to another world It s a world of mysterious uestions to which tuna sandwiches a set of sharpened pencils a trombone and a baseball cap are its incomprehensible but valid answers Conversations glean additional significance from the darkness that surrounds them Everyday objects become laden with meaning I am close to understanding the night as I feel it both within the pages and within me I wake up

Tokyo un uartiere che inizia a vivere uando cala il buio strade dove le insegne di bar e night club restano accese fino all'alba Dalla mezzanotte alle sette del mattino alcune persone sono casualmente coinvolte in una suallida vicenda di violenza All'Alphaville un love hotel gestito da Kaoru un'ex campionessa di lotta libera una giovane prostituta cinese viene picchiata da un cliente che poi fugge In una caffetteria poco distante Mari una diciannovenne studentessa di cinese in cerca di solitudine sta leggendo un libro; Takahashi un giovane musicista jazz disinvolto e chiacchierone vorrebbe attacca. Good ol Murakami Every time I read him I feel my reasons for choosing a book as company over a real person legitimized again What is reading but a singular form of one sided communication An author sends us an encoded message crafted with precision and a deep empathy arising out of their understanding of the world and humanity at large And we in turn decode it and instantly feel a pull on the invisible umbilical cord linking us to this person we have never met and possibly will never meet Murakami makes me feel exactly this way I will never meet him or get to make his acuaintance But then don t I know him alreadyFew other writers speak to me the way he does Every time I open a book by him I feel at home I let the surrealistic worlds of his creation engulf me in a warm embrace and sweep me away into an unknown abyss of turbulent feelings darkness and melancholia I know I can latch onto his hand and take a walk inside the darkest recesses of my own mind that I wasn t even aware existed I know I can let him become my guide my own personal magician with a wide range of tricks up his sleeve I know I can nurture an unshakeable faith in the illusions he begets Because as always he will unveil the grand truth of the matter in the end and offer enlightenment of a uniue kind After Dark reinforces this unadulterated pristine devotion that I feel for this man Through the bizarre events that a set of individuals go through all in one night Murakami explores the seedy underbelly of a city and perhaps our existence Love hotel managers Chinese prostitutes and gangsters a young college going girl struggling with a vague identity crisis her beautiful older sister who lies in a state of perpetual somnolence but doesn t die an optimistic young man who plays the trombone in a band an ordinary office worker who turns violent under the helpful cover of the night these are the wonderfully strange people he designates as our guides to his kaleidoscopic landscapesLike the master of imagery that he is he creates one seductively beautiful vignette after another and pastes them together into a mesmerizing collage of the collective human consciousness He fishes out the soul of a city so bereft of life and substantial movement after the sun has set He unleashes all the inglorious impulses and unholy emotions that bob up to the surface of our consciousness when the dazzling light of the day is no longer there to help keep them in check and lets us witness how his characters grapple with them He analyzes and dissects our darkest nocturnal human tendencies with astounding sensitivity He goes deeper yet and tries to reveal the paradox of dualism in any individual the stark differences between our daytime selves and darker nighttime selves and how effortlessly both can co exist in harmony but are separated by an unbridgeable riftI am very much tempted to give this 5 stars but I have seen Murakami deal with complex themes and create even staggeringly raw and visceral images with the aid of his powerful writing Hence 4 stars it is for now

Re discorso ma si scontra con la sua reticenza Tuttavia uando Kaoru cerca ualcuno che faccia da interprete alla prostituta ferita Takahashi che con il suo gruppo sta provando in uno scantinato vicino all'albergo le suggerisce di rivolgersi alla giovane Mari viene così a contatto con un ambiente a lei estraneo ma paradossalmente riesce a comunicare con le persone che vi incontra in modo spontaneo e profondo per la prima volta vince la riluttanza a parlare di Eri la sorella maggiore caduta in un letargo volontario dal uale non sembra volersi svegliare L'immagine della bellissima ragazza che sta per. Eye s mark the shape of the cityThere is something about Murakami that ignites connections in my brain that I don t know what to do with Such as the scene with the man on a television screen staring into a real room with a girl lying on the bed He is said to be looking in from the other side Murakami uses this same phrase when a main character is looking into a mirror When she gazes at herself in the mirror she is said to be looking in from the other side There are several scenes which beg for some kind of interpretation because they connect in some kind of way So I tried my best to link two major ideas that struck me at firstThis book seemed to me to occupy itself with the phenomena of observance His comparisons of the narrative lens to an actual camera lens is obvious His prose even reflects that of a screenplay Most chapters start with a sentence fragment of the location like a screenplay Int Denny s or what have you The book is heavy on the dialogue and it s in the present tense Obviously the idea of a screenplay informing the way we see a movie is being drawn into this story Another major idea stemmed from an argument of the effects of such observance upon the subject being observed eye s mark the shape of the city I felt the usage of the first person plural ie we see this now we move into this place was an argument for how the book itself smashes a world into a single view As if there are these multiple people trying to look into this world but we are restricted to the author s single view of the world So he uses we to refer to our collected view into this worldAs you can see these were all very abstract and loose interpretations I tried my best to develop it I went to town on the first 50 pages with a pen but slowly the book slipped away from the analytical side of my brain I somewhat accepted that I wasn t going to understand every last supernatural detail or musing in this book Instead I let the mood and feelings evoked within guide me through itIn interviews Murakami often discusses his writing style He calls it dreaming He will wake up at early hours of the morning to dream into the page then he goes to a strictly regimented routine of running and other daily chores He sees this repetition and dreaming as a way to mine into the inner recesses of the subconscious There is something beautiful about this in my opinion This way in which Murakami delves into this type of writing always stimulates emotion from within me It is like a dream where you wake up and can t really describe anything that has happened to yourself yet you are undeniably left with a deep pensive attitude superseding all of the uotidian aspects of the morningI like that Murakami does that to meI like that he connects two completely unrelated things that I can never make much sense out ofI most certainly recommend this book The only thing keeping me from five stars is the fact that it feels incomplete in its shortness And not enough of it comes together in a similar fashion as The Wind Up Bird ChronicleNonetheless it is powerful stuff I m a fanProse style 4Plot 3Depth of characters 4Overall sense of aesthetic 5 Originality 5Entertaining 3Emotional Reaction 5 Intellectual Stimulation 5Social Relevance 3Writerly Inspiration 4 Average 41 Click here

    A delightful excursion into the mentality and rhythms of night in the city and the perspectives it gives to the meaning of our daytime lives This 2007 novel contains the essence of Murikami’s weird and wonderful ways in a pure and restrained form We fly around observing a set of characters as with an invisible camera neutral and unjudging Time ticks down explicitly through the night though the pacing of life
