Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki

I finished reading the book and I love it. Not as much as I love 1Q84 but this one has a certain level of maturity in it. It shows both the Maruakami that we adore and also leaves us with an ending that will haunt us til the next few days on what actually happened.

This is the book that I read only for less than a week, approximately 3 days and 4 hours. I was lingering on chapter by chapter and was hypnotised upon reaching 80%. I just had to finish it then and there.

The characters and the setting makes it colourless colourful through vivid depiction of how each character evolve through time and how the plot develops as they mature. The realisation at the end had me thinking, which made it a better ending in my mind.

I can't wait for the next one to come out (rumour has it that there is another book before the end of the year). For me though, I consider Murakami the best author there is. The Living Legend.
