And ever since I was little my mother had told me, if you don t know something, go to the library and look it up I ll be damn, I think I have to give this 4 Stars.

    Mr Sheep Man, I asked, why would that old man want to eat my brains Because brains packed with knowledge are yummy, that s why They re nice and creamy And sort of grainy at the same time I have a confession to make The Strange Library is the first work of Haruki Murakami I ve ever read There, I ve said it One of my best friends, Sr an, kept pushing me to read something of Murakami s To Sr an, Murakami is a mythic figure I m certain he makes the sign of the cross every time the Mr Sheep Man, I asked, why would that old man want to eat my brains Because brains packed with knowledge are yummy, that s why They re nice and creamy And sort of grainy at the same time I have a confession to make The Strange Library is the first work of Haruki Murakami I ve ever read There, I ve said it One of my best friends, Sr an, kept pushing me to read something of Murakami s To Sr an, Murakami is a mythic figure I m certain he makes the sign of the cross every time the mere thought of Murakami enters his mind Most of my friends love him as well My mother has read nearly everything he has published I m awfully embarrassed to be so late jumping on the Murakami band wagon, but I m glad I made the leap I very much enjoyed THE STRANGE LIBRARY All the boy wanted was to borrow a book from the strange library Once inside, he entered the realm of a Sheepman who loves to make donuts, magical starlings , a crazy man who loves to eat creamy brains, and a mystical, wisp of a girl I ve never read anything quite like this before, and I found it to be quite funny and endearing Reality soon set in as tragedy struck the boy I don t know if what I read was real, a dream, or a nightmare What I do know, is that I am excited to visit Murakami s world again In fact, I think I will be visiting quite often over the next several years Thank you, Srdjan

    Why did something like this have to happen to me All I did was go to the library to borrow some books. Haruki Murakami has a fascinating ability to break open the natural world and let loose all the magic that we hope and suspect is lurking right under the surface The Strange Library is a cause for celebration in the Murakami ouveur, even just for the simple fact that its existence signals that the well respected novelist has achieved a superstar status in the world of reading evenwort Why did something like this have to happen to me All I did was go to the library to borrow some books. Haruki Murakami has a fascinating ability to break open the natural world and let loose all the magic that we hope and suspect is lurking right under the surface The Strange Library is a cause for celebration in the Murakami ouveur, even just for the simple fact that its existence signals that the well respected novelist has achieved a superstar status in the world of reading evenworth celebrating as this status is not commonly held these days by an author with such literary chops and depth of heart It is also satisfying to see the novel used as an art form beyond the printed word as Chip Kidd has done here this is nothing new or groundbreaking, such as B.S Johnson s book in a box The Unfortunates, but still refreshing In an age of digital books it is relieving to see publishers producing a reason to go out and buy the physical copy, offering so muchthan just the story for those who still enjoy the tangible paper Though the book is merely a single short story a story that works like a microcosm of all that is Murakami even if a bit watered down with a cover price just above a standard novel, it is a gorgeous work of art to support the content and proves that Murakami is enough of a household name to be able to release such an exciting collectors piece Flourishing under the art direction of Chip Kidd, the physical book itself is as whimsical as the story within and is truly something to take down from your shelf so you and your friends can marvel at it The back cover folds over the top and bottom of the book, creating a slip case like box out of the book itself, and each page corresponds to a full color image that reflects the current actions of the story These illustrations create a multi media experience that drives the book along and returns the reader to their childhood of being just as drawn in by the pictures as the story Plus the text is set in Typewriter , which is sure to tickle any fan While the illustrations are fun, some are used multiple times and some of it left me desiring a littleThe effort is there, the result is beautiful, but somehow it seems like it could have been easily taken to higher heights Like a blind dolphin, the night of the new moon silently drew near The story itself is simple a young boy gets locked in a library s reading room by an evil librarian who will eat his brains if the boy cannot memorize three thick books on Ottoman tax collection It is the type of plot you would find in a children s book, and what I enjoyed most was the way the story seems to play on the irrational fears you have as an over imaginative child, always wondering how even the most mundane events could suddenly break into a life or death fantasy full of heros and villans This is what Murakami does best in his works, particularly Wind Up Bird Chronicles He allows the reader to have all the fun of a children s book without sacrificing the literary merit or writing caliber All the Murakami trademarks are within, from oversensitive and passive protagonists and the alluring and mysterious women who aid them, to labyrinths and parallel worlds There is even an appearance by the Sheep Man from his early book A Wild Sheep Chase Particularly intriguing is the girl he meets in the prison who talks with her hands , Murakami making somethingmagical than just meaning sign language as the hands are described as bearing a distinct, audible voice and her dialogue is denoted by blue ink The sheep man has his world I have mind And you have yours,toojust because I don t exist in the sheep man s world, it doesn t mean that I don t exist at all. With as simple of a discussion as that, Murakami lightly paints in parallel worlds and fantasy, keeping them vague enough to provoke the imagination and making them feel plausible in the world we live in Often, especially towards the beginning, the language feels a bit juvenile and flimsy, though it is key to remember that the narrator is a young teen Murakami has done well to keep an authentic atmosphere with this style instead of being unable or unwilling to separate himself and his voice from his characters The character of the narrator reflects many of Murakami s common motifs, especially the boy s passive nature As the Sheep Man and the boy are both those who do what they are told, especially if doing so will earn them praise despite not actually agreeing with their actions, they have been led into the servitude and imprisonment of the evil librarian However, they realize they deservethan to be pushed around and the boy, Sheep Man and the mysterious girl unite with one another to escape and overthrow their oppressors This all makes for a wonderful statement about not sitting silent under the authority of tyranny, finding your voice and forging your own way in the world even if it means overthrowing those above you The epilogue of sorts that appears in small print on the final page is a devastating little paragraph that sinks the reader in melancholy yet reminds them of Murakami s ultimate message that it is through meaningful human interaction, friendship, love and bravery that we conquer the darkness of the world We all must care for one another, like the narrator cares for his parakeet and his mother cares for him.While the content of the book is a bit slim and readslike a children s novel, all the hallmarks of classic Murakami are within This is not a book for everyone, mostly those already fascinated by the worlds of it s author and I would not recommend it as a starting point for those wishing to take their first dip into Murakami s words However, it is a book to hold and marvel, and if you allow yourself to, it sure is a hell of a lot of fun This was the perfect companion for a day stuck in bed with a savage bout of flu, and for those needing a brief little smile of a book to brighten the day and return them to the emotions and actions that first connected them with loving books as a child, then this is a perfect choice.3.5 5 Apparently The Strange Library is occasionally categorized as Children s Literature that you to Praj for the insight While reading the book, I was under the impression Library published solo with Kidd s artistry as an excuse to put it out without need of a full fledged short story collection While the story would have felt at home between the covers of The Elephant Vanishes, it also works quite well as a children s novel This would account for the slender standard Murakami themes, and also why this book is general devoid of the sex scenes and sexuality that is usually present within his work, as well as thenovel like plot complete with problem and climax as opposed to a slice of life short story structure
