I like Haruki Murakami.
Although I don't usually read a novels, I have read the Haruki's novels of all.
However, If I say "I like Haruki's novels", Everyone thinks me to be a Harukist religion.
As I don't want to be a Harukist that I'm not enthusiastic fan, I don't say it.
I intoroduce my best 5 not to tell detail.
+ The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle
This book is more impressive than interesting.
Although it was boring as it was peaceful until middle of the story, the accident happens casually.
I read it with a little disgusting feeling because somewhat dark and scary the atomosphere.
As the story is long, it is not recomend to beginer. But if you like other Haruki's novels, You have to read it.
+ Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage
If you don't read a novels, but you want to read a Haruki's novels, this novels is recommended.
Although the story is short, his view of the world is written.
This novels became big topic in Japan. Emerging religious cases at the time was traced.
This story dosen't want to imagin because the detail was harsh.
But I was saved somehow as SF part is also heavily used for this work.
+ Kafka on the Shore
There wasn't much different to 1Q84.
This story is also SF, but there is reality and readable.
A entanglement scene with women was made to be horny by the real pleasure of his work.
+ Dance Dance Dance
It is the last chapter of a novels called the representative sheep trilogy.
There is some connection from his debut novels to this novels.
It is interesting to read only this one but I recomend to read debut novels.
But I don't recomend to beginner.
"Norweigian Wood" is the most famous in japan and his view of the world is written.
But I think that this novels is not more interesting than above 5 novels because it is like a romance.
You'll be able to understand a little his character.
