Eddy Rathke was talking about Haruki Murakami recently on Facebook, particularly with respect to criticism of Murakami’s writing. Joseph Michael Owens engaged in the discussion and happened to mention that he thought Kyle Muntz and I should post about our Murakami preferences. Eddy agreed, so I thought I’d give it a shot.
Mind you, I still have problems ranking favorites. I like different parts of different things for different reasons, and even that can change with my mood or what I’m looking for at a particular time. This is especially difficult for something like Murakami writing.
Still, for Joe and Eddy, I’ll give it a shot. The below is how I feel right now, for a variety of reasons. I can classify into “most preferred,” “preferred,” and “ones that weren’t my favorites but were still rockin’.”
This is the best I can do.
Ones that weren’t my favorites but were still rockin’
Whether anyone agrees or not, or even respects my opinion, there we have it.
