Historical Romance Writer: LUSH SENSUAL READS

Haruki Murakami

After an blog glitch making her comment disappear into the ether. Robyn from Elder Park Book Reviews said the following which I found very moving and wanted to add here:

‘A good friend of mine turned me on to Murakami a few months ago. I find it is a blend of Japanese mysticism and an enlightened truth into the situations. His ability to really get to the motivations of people is uncanny- and he does it with blinding truth, empathy and wisdom. His books are the most highlighted of my possessions because I have learned so much about myself and my true nature from reading his books and I can’t say that about any other author. Thank you for the post. I hope more people read his works because of it.’

‘Is there one you would especially recommend?’

‘They are all different- Kafka on the shore is more about an inward journey, the wind up bird chronicles is about finding your identity within and with-out of a relationship. Norwegian wood – is about the promise of love and soul mates. IQ84- is about society with an Orwellian influence. All I can say- read the blurbs, see which one talks to you. Just remember Underground is non-fiction.’

    I love Haruki Murakami. A friend of mine turned me on to him some months ago. What I find is a blend of ethereal Japanese mysticism with real truth into situations. He always manages to get to the root of an issue with glaring poignancy and wisdom. His books are the most highlight books I posses, because what he says some times is not only quotable- it is enlightening. I feel that I have learned more out myself and my true nature just from reading his books and I can not say that about any other author.
    Thank you for the post- More people should discover Haruki Murakami for themselves 🙂

    This is so cool. I really appreciate artists. I love to draw and sketch, but I wish I knew how to use computer software to make beautiful and creative images like others.

    Keep smiling,
