Sputnik Sweetheart

Just done with a second of Murakami's series. Somehow what he said was true, Murakami's style of writing has that same style, although I haven't read enough to judge.

"Sputnik" - according to the narrator means travelling companion, in Russian by the way. Well title makes sense according to the plot. But I'm kind of confused with the ending. A lot of whys in my head after finishing it. To me it felt like the novel is not finished yet, I don't understand the last paragraph actually. erm..

But it's not bad, it managed to absorb me, especially the Miu's Ferris Wheel part, and also Sumire suddenly on the floor in Miu's room. But I would rate it under Norwegian Wood lah. Let's see what Kafka can do...

Favourite line from this novel :

"In the world we live in, what we know and what we don't know are like Siamese twins, inseparable, existing in a state of confusion.

Confusion, confusion."
