Just couldn’t dig this book. Something about gay magical mermen (or merman) and magic illness-staving Enki fish and deep dark secrets on an island. It definitely is not your usual run of the mill book. Strange.
Here’s an idea for a drinking game – take a shot every time someone cries in The Perks of Being a Wallflower. You’ll not be doing your liver any favours.
After countless visits to Dymocks browsing through the shelves I finally decided to just go ahead and buy some Murakami. I rarely buy books that I’m not completely certain are fantastic (or to finish a series because you can’t just not own the complete series). The covers of his books are absolutely gorgeous and the blurbs sound wonderfully poetic.
