Rated 4 out of 5 by from Colourful in its simplicity My love for Murakami is still strong as ever with "Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage." Whether you're sick of it or not, Murakami does his schtick very well. He captures, with simple words, what it is to be lonely and forgotten, to lose oneself's identity and purpose, and then to get that glimmer of hope that might just pull one out of the deep dark abyss of mediocrity. The ones of Murakami's works that stand out to me are the grounded ones with a mostly basic plot that imparts just as much wisdom as that trademark atmospheric heaviness. "Norwegian Wood" and "South of the Border, West of the Sun" were like that, and so is "Colorless." Tsukuru is abandoned by his colourful friends and he carries this burdended feeling through the years till he meets someone who pushes him to uncover the truth in order to be freed of this weight. And so he does, reconnecting with the people of yesteryear and discovering more of how he is perceived by others rather than what he thinks he is perceived as. The title and cover design when revealed made me scratch my head but I now see how it all ties together. Read Murakami and decide on your own if his style is for you. "Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage" would be a good one to be introduced to the author because of how straightforward it is without losing sense of who Murakami is - a masterful storyteller who is familiarly profound with his intent and imagery.
