In California describing the Silicon Valley life in the Early Mid 80s.

A Book, That isn’t like anything that I have read in all these years.
No! It’s not exactly a poetry Book like Pablo Neruda’s or a Rupi Kaur.
But It’s a novel! That’s written in a very novel way.
It’s written in a prose style & verses style.
Writing is very poetic and The Word Play makes it beautiful read.
This is one book, You should give it A Shot, If you are looking to read a different style of writing with a literary twist to it.
The Wild Sheep Chase by Murakami
Having this time to read as many books and more books than the previous years. Instead of just reading one book a year by Murakami. This year I have already read three books from the author in the last six months. At regular intervals.
“The Wild Sheep Chase” Wasn’t even a book that I thought would be enjoyable, But having all the elements of a typical Murakami book (Mystery, Love, Loneliness and an experience) This book had yet another Animal/Insect character called the Rat and of course sheep too! This is what makes the book such a fascinating and enjoyable read that you can’t get enough of it and wonder how some simple ideas can be written in so much length, that keep the readers wanting more…
“The Wild Sheep Chase” has been my Tenth Murakami read since, I first read his “Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and his years of pilgrimage” about five years ago… A story about characters who all have a name that has a meaning and reference to colour. But Tsukuru Tazaki doesn’t have a name which signifies any colour and how lonely and left out he feels by his friend’s circle and in the world.
