Después del Terremoto by Haruki Murakami (5 star ratings)

This book is not yet featured on Listopia. Feb 20, K. I am not sure why but this collection of six short stories that happened after the Kobe earthquake just did not impress me as much as his Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman did last month. Maybe because five out of the six stories have no fantasy ingredient like the talking cat, leeches falling from the sky, a TV zooming automatically at the sleeping you or the actual appearance of a UFO.

These 6 short stories are mostly pure drama and the usual disappearance, leaving without saying goodbye or saying I am not sure why but this collection of six short stories that happened after the Kobe earthquake just did not impress me as much terrmeoto his Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman did last month.

These 6 short stories are mostly despuees drama and the usual disappearance, leaving without saying goodbye murakqmi saying the reason why, staring endlessly on a TV or at nothingness, etc. I also thought that some, if not all, of the stories were about people surviving the Kobe earthquake. There was none like that. In fact, references to the Kobe earthquake were just made in passing and could have been removed without any effect on the stories. Particularly the last story “Honey Pie”, it seems like the narrator is Haruki himself writing like Nicholas Sparks.

There is this man character who marries his friend’s wife after her husband, who happens to be character’s bestfriend, abandons his family.

Despues Del Terremoto (spanish Edition) by Haruki Murakami

Philippines import a lot of telenovelas from Korea and sometimes Japan so this storyline is a big hum-hum for me. The character Junpei seems to be making an excuse in behalf of Murakami by saying: Okay, I am still a Murakami fan but this book does not have what I used to love about his writing. One promising story is the fifth one, though. Edl is entitled Super-Frog Saves Tokyo.

However, the message is not something that is thought-provoking at all. In fact, it has been a message of a million of stories: Well, even Stephen Covey included this in one of his seven habits: I know even Covey was not an original on this.


So obviously Murakami wasn’t too. The other four stories just do not make sense a lot for me and I will not discuss them anymore but you can read my updates if you are interested. This is my sixth book by Murakami: Kafka on the Shore 5 stars. The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles 4 stars. Sputnik Sweetheart 5 stars. After Dark 4 stars. Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman 5 stars. I guess I am hitting the plateau when it comes to Murakami short stories.

I wanted to be surprised by a different approach. I expected to be enthralled again by his thoughts, words and characters. This book simply did not do that to me. Hopefully not with his novels as there are still a couple of others that are in my tbr pile.

I still hope that there is much more to Murakami than all those fantasy, loneliness, aloneness themes. I still believe that Murakami is still one of those authors who do not rewrite themselves.

His experiment of trying to write differently here did not work for me. View all 17 comments. These stories are boring, nonsensical, and have this aura of false profundity about them — like they’re somehow illuminating the human condition, maybe — yet they fail to move me emotionally. The descriptions are flat and vague statements like “the car looked old” and terremkto air smelled funny” wouldn’t be out of place in this collectionthe characters are bland, and the plot “twists” are random to the point of meaninglessness.

In one story, a guy comes home to find a gigantic frog sittin Meh. In one story, a guy comes home to find a gigantic frog sitting in his living room. Said frog has to fight a giant worm living underneath Tokyo or the city will experience an apocalyptic earthquake.

I think I wrote that story when I was in fifth grade. Some authors are plagued with the fear that they have no talent, that they’re charlatans who’ve been bluffing their way through the literary world and that someday they’ll be exposed as frauds.

Terremoto sort of wonder if Haruki Murakami is the real thing Critics love that kind of stuff — just look at the success of John Ashberry and Jorie Graham — but I’m left wondering if it’s all smoke and mirrors. I suppose I’ll give Kafka on the Shore a try, but maybe I’m just not the right audience for this guy’s work. View haaruki 3 comments. Apologies to all Murakami fans out there.

This is the first Haruki book I picked up and I was genuinely hoping to like it. Well I sure hope they do, because, boy, was I disappointed! I have always felt uneasy about negative reviews of translated material though. Maybe certain nuances of the language are lost in translation and it reads better in Japanese. However, I can only review what I read in English and it falls short.

Not just the language, it is the stories I have a problem with. Yes, there are a few imaginative and eccentric stories in there which I am not a fan of either but most other stories came across as a line up pretentious tales.

This he followed by describing accounts of a random metaphysical occurrence terrrmoto no real consequence leaving the point of the story a mystery. I might give Murakami another chance after the exasperation of reading this book has worn off. En el mejor de los casos, me parece “bien”. I counted impatiently pages till the end. The collection muralami stories were not my thing: Super Frog saves Tokyo drew my attention because of its unique story and good construction of harukii and characters personalities.


The former reminded me of some sick manga with horny teens going after a completly uninteresting impotent. The latter was just pure stupidity from irrelevant stuff like hey the main character has a big penis, dances with hands up and still lives with his mother.

Oh and his mother sleeps sometimes in the same bed with him which results in him getting erection. I cringed like a million times. One of the lines said by this big-penis-dude when questioning his trip myrakami the never-met-father was “What was I hoping to gain from this? This simple line tormented me throughout the reading when questioning my gain – What was it that I hoped to gain from reading these stories?

I wanted to like Murakami. I felt like I should, seeing everyone is so in love with him. But this book just ruined reading for me. Murakami doesn’t deliver surrealism like Boris Vian does in his Froth on the Daydream. He also doesn’t quite implement fantastical into brutal realism like Kafka does not in these stories at least.

I tried to puzzle out the logic behind his style, but I came to conclusion there isn’t I wanted to like Murakami. I tried to puzzle out the logic behind his style, but I came to conclusion there isn’t one. The writing is just clumsy, sterile and unnatural. Like the stories were penned by AI really really bad at understanding human interactions. It didn’t succeed in pushing the way I perceive things – haru,i just left me baffled. To be frank, this is the most disappointing book I have read within the last years.

First, I thought it was the fault of the translation that the text was extremely poor and oversimplified, but I suppose I was wrong.

There is nothing innovative about these stories describing the lives of troubled people harki minor or murqkami problems who are willing to end their lives within the next moment, given that chance. There is also deapues inspiring, motivating or even educational about these stories as they To be frank, this is the most disappointing book I have read within the last years.

There is also nothing inspiring, motivating or even educational about these stories as they end up literally nowhere. To sum up, I would not recommend this book to anyone, nevertheless, literature is always a matter of personal taste. Was hard gerremoto believe this was Murakami as the style was so different from everything else I had read of his. Quite disappointing and found none of the stories memorable or particularly enjoyable. I should have abandoned this one. No me ha gustado nada de nada, no se lo recomiendo a nadie.
