    1. Reading the books of Haruki Murakami (born 1949) is like watching the films of Akira Kurosawa (1910-1998). The two are the most notable world-known artists in Japan.In particular, reading the 24 stories included in this collection Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman is like watching Kurosawa's 1990 film, Dreams three times. The 8 stories in the film are said to be based on the actual dreams of Kurosawa. In Murakami's Introduction to the English Edition of this book, he said that Ice Man, one of the 24, [...]


    2. Here is a story of why I am the best friend ever.Way back in aught 5 or so (oh my god, how was that a decade ago), I worked at Random House. I was and am still a smoker; I could and do tell so many stories about how smoking has directed and redirected the course of my life (here's one about books!). Anyway. There was a guy at RH I knew a bit because we smoked at the same time, and eventually I learned that he was like the head of marketing for a bunch of the big imprints. At one point he made me [...]


    3. I have read good reviews about this book, but I just couldn’t relate to them. The book picked up towards the end, with really nice stories…But one has to live through “waste of time” pieces throughout the book (mostly for the first three quarters) before one is treated to the nice ones (what is glory without suffering?) Since this is a collection of short stories, I've decided to rate it by story, and then take the average. Average rating overall is 2.54, which technically translates to [...]


    4. Mekurayanagi to nemuru onna = Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman, Haruki MurakamiBlind Willow, Sleeping Woman (Mekurayanagi to nemuru onna) is a collection of 24 short stories by Japanese author Haruki Murakami.

    5. Reading Murakami (Haruki) is kind of like dreaming. This was a book of 24 of his short stories. What I noticed is that unlike some short story collections I've read, Murakami has the talent of writing a few first lines that just grab you and make you rush on with the story. But then what seems straightforward, say a simple love affair, ends up being just a firefly stuck in a jar or an endless trip to the south pole; the end sometimes has no relation to the beginning or no apparent relation. Some [...]


    6. I had heard a great deal about Murakami and I borrowed this book from my friend. Reading this book was such a great experience. The stories are so different from the work that I usually read and have a surreal dreamlike quality about them. I cannot help but feel that I may have not been able to comprehend some of the metaphors used. Nevertheless, I enjoyed most of the stories included in this book.People are complex, emotions and human behavior might not follow logic always. Beneath the façade [...]


    7. No pude formar un vínculo con estos relatos. Solo cuatro los considero buenos, entretenidos, que se pueden disfrutar. Pero los demás me resultaron insípidos, aburridos y pesados, con personajes cuyas vidas no me conmovieron ni me interesaron. Lo que menos me gustó fue que tuve que transitar en cada cuento por una historia anodina o tediosa y que, al llegar al final, el autor, en vez de darle un sentido a todo lo que había leído (soportado), me haya demostrado que el relato era, en efecto, [...]


    8. I like to read short stories since the day I entered college, because It takes me less time to finish them and plus I already feel the pleasure of reading. A research shows that Filipinos were short story lovers because of our current condition, fast paced world. I don’t know if I should nod while agreeing with the fact that we like short stories, but in the darkest side, I was one of the Filipinos who liked to read them.What I really loved bout Murakami was his passion in writing novels and s [...]


    9. Não tenho por costume ler livros de contos. No entanto este foi me oferecido e estava há muito tempo na minha prateleira, pelo que resolvi que era desta que pegava nele. E já o devia ter feito há mais tempo nunca tinha lido nada de Murakami. Neste momento mal posso esperar por pegar num dos seus romances. Cada conto deste livro é uma delicia. Totalmente original e surrealista, o escritor consegue captar a nossa atenção e entrar no íntimo de cada um de nós. Por mais estranha e diferente [...]


    10. Murakami's fiction is all about natural presence of the surreal in ordinary lives. The outright absurd is readily accepted by many of the characters, creating some curious protagonists, bizarre stories, and a thoroughly entertaining read.This is my first attempt at his short stories and frankly I am confused over some of the metaphors and symbologies in "Blind Willow, Sleeping Women" and a few others, but that I believe, is in itself the beauty of his writing. In most of his tales we are always [...]


    11. I really loved most of these short stories. It seems like some of them are a bit over my head after some reflection, but they are unique and, as always with Murakami, beautifully written. Highly recommended to someone who likes his stuff, but also recommended if you are looking for a way to get into his stuff. Can't wait to get more into his collection


    12. E c'è ancora gente che quando vuole evadere guarda la TvPer questa volta eviterò di annoiarvi con le mie solite manifestazioni stucchevoli di cieco amore nei confronti di Haruki.Vi lascerò soltanto una profondissima perla di saggezza che ho maturato nella mia innata modestia a fine lettura. ù_ùMurakami sta al lettore come una donna di vent'anni sta a un suo coetaneo maschio (e sottolineo coetaneo).Ossia: la donna a parità di condizioni afferra e vede cose che l'uomo può appena intravedere [...]


    13. I love Murakami’s characters and their loneliness, the silent suffering they go through and the fact that you are never really sure whether they are daydreaming, dreaming, having superpowers or are just being highly sensitive. Yet again, loneliness is one the main topics in Murakami’s work and this book is no exception – “Can you imagine how astonished the Italians would be if they knew that what they were exporting in 1971 was actuallyloneliness?”, or the final paragraph of “The Yea [...]


    14. I confess most of the stories didn't make any sense to me and this being my first Murakami, I felt a bit disappointed too. But was glad that I could finally finish reading something I had started. In that sense it was a breather of sorts.



    15. If I had to think a way to define this book I cannot think otherwise than as a "Short story Matryoshka" (Cultural information: matryoshkas are those typical russian wooden dolls of different sizes placed one inside the other). Because as the reading progresses you'll find stories inside other stories, maybe this is part of the originality of the writer.His style stands out even from the way he entitled the stories, the titles are as imaginative as: The year of spaguetti, A perfect day for kanga [...]


    16. I love short stories and I enjoyed Murakami's Sputnik Sweetheart, so I decided to try this collection.Reading these stories was like listening to a stoned student at some cheap beer joint which is usually full of such individuals. As you might or might not know, they're usually full of bullshit. Same can be said for most of these stories. They're just agonizingly dull. With each next one, I grew more and more bored. They're all just a flash of idea, a half-bred plot or character; there's little [...]


    17. I wish I could give this book more. I really liked some stories, such as the firefly, the one about the surfer, the mirror story and the one about the wave. My favourite remains however "the firefly" one because Murakami captures marvellously well the gap left by the death of their friend; the resulting proximity of the two who are left behind and their inability to fill each others' empty space. I just loved it. And I loved the ending. She was like the firefly. She took time to take flight, but [...]


    18. A book of short stories. As ever with Murakami we get kooky, left field prose - talking monkeys stealing names or waves with evil intent. Unsettling and thought provoking.For me the collection was patchy, a few stories didn't work, most were fine, and there were a couple of real gems.


    19. —El corazón de las personas es como un pozo muy profundo. Nadie sabe lo que hay en el fondo. Sólo podemos imaginárnoslo mirando la forma de las cosas que, de vez en cuando, suben a la superficie. Él y ella pensaban en lo mismo. En un avión. En el avión que el corazón de él construía en lo más recóndito de un bosque lejano. En su tamaño, en la forma que tenía, en el color del que estaba pintado, en el lugar al que se dirigiría. Y en quién montaría en él. En el avión que estaba [...]



    20. I really enjoyed dipping in and out of these short stories. The symbolism and clarity he writes with is unreal. Love this guy.


    21. Only Murakami can write a poignant story about a monkey stealing people's names. I concur with Goodreaders who've given this collection otherwise mediocre reviews that with the exception of "Birthday Girl" in the beginning, the most complete and fulfilling stories are all lumped right at the end. "Chance Traveler," "The Kidney Shaped Stone That Moves Every Day," and "A Shinagawa Monkey" are excellent, especially if you're as disheartened by the rest of the collection as I was. I'm surprised that [...]


    22. It turns out I've read a bunch of the stories in "Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman" before -- almost half of them, I'd guess, and likely all in The New Yorker. It was nevertheless enjoyable to revisit a few of those, including "The Kidney-Shaped Stone That Moves Every Day," which I had strong memories of reading even before I read this book, and "A Shinagawa Monkey," which I'd forgotten about until I began rereading it.Reading Murakami's book was not, however, a completely enjoyable experience. I've [...]


    23. Non c'è niente da fare, Murakami mi piace. Ancora di più nella veste di scrittore di racconti. Apprezzo soprattutto quel tono di "tutto normale" che colora i racconti più bizzarri, come se le cose più anomale e insolite fossero un'esperienza quotidiana. Molti racconti, come ho già scritto, sono inoltre delle vere e proprie finestre: si intuisce l'inizio e non esiste una vera e propria fine che si snoda al di là della nostra visuale, come un'auto che passa oltre il riquadro. Coglie spesso i [...]


    24. ترجمه ی سرکار خانم مونا حسینی رو نسبت به ترجمه ی قبلی بیشتر پسندیدم هرچند هنوز جاهایی جای ویرایش داره.ولی در مجموع خوب بود.


    25. Wonderful, surreal, dreamlike Murakami excels at the art of the short story; and I'd definitely recommend this book as a good introduction to his work.Contents:Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman - One of the more surrealist works here. A young man has to take his younger cousin to a doctor's appointment - which leads him to recall visiting a friend in the hospital, years before. I know that doesn't sound surreal but you have to read it.Birthday Girl - Stuck working on her birthday, a young waitress is [...]


    26. কয়েকটা গল্প বেশি ভাল আর কয়েকটা খুব ভাল লাগে নি । আসল রেটিং ৩.৫।


    27. It's the first time I could put down a Murakami book and read other books in-between, rather than wait eagerly for the next opportunity to pick it up and zap to the end. Unlike his other two short-story collections After the Quake (my favourite of the three) and The Elephant Vanishes, this one was too much of the same. That's right, I'm stating the obvious because other than Norwegian Wood, most of Murakami's fiction is the same. I know this at the start, which is probably why I pick a book of h [...]


    28. Haruki Murakami is one of my favorite authors. His postmodern work alternates between full length novels and short story collections and they are always wildly innovative and thought provoking. Often compared to Kafka and Camus, his work has unexplained mystical events, mysteries that are solve with intuition rather than solid clues and unexpectedly funny moments. These stories are epiphanies in which the characters wander through surreal or magical experiences and end up with a new understandin [...]
