The novel is told in flashback so the main events are taking place in the 60s so in the background are these student protests which rather compliments the story rather well.
Toru also meets a variety of different girls but still is working and waiting for Naoko despite everything.
There's a lot to relate to in that. The writing is fantastic and I can still hear the Beatles' song "Norwegian Wood" in my head even after I've finished it. The song does make an appearance a few times but I just found myself hearing it at odd times.
There's a feeling and an aesthetic perhaps to this book that I connected with more than the actual plot, I suppose. This book is just another "love story".
I was hoping the author's books would provide me with some insight of Japanese culture. That it did but what I learned was how prevalent and dominant are American and English films, songs and books in Japan.
Constant reference to these arts makes his books confusing. I didn't find it to be so though. I somehow read almost every other Murakami work to date before finally getting around to this one.
It's a nice story, yes it always is , replete with the obvious marks of this reliably-excellent author's hand; however, taken in context of his other works, I disagree with it's enduring privileged critical status. Hard-boiled Wonderland I recommend all of these before Norwegian Wood, actually.
Thanks and good luck. Like s smplreader Aug 08, A quick and interesting read, but was a much darker book than I had expected. Click on the cover image above to read some pages of this book!

Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire - to a time when an impetuous young woman called Midori marches into his life and he has to choose between the future and the past.
One day his four closest friends, the friends he'd known for a long time, announced that they did not want to see him, or talk with him, ever again'.
