A Memento of Peder Balke's exhibition at the National Gallery

The epitome of Murakamis prowess
Review of 1Q84: Book 3 - Haruki Murakami by muriukisam

Advantages: Good illustrative language, sizzlingvocabulary and expressions from a distance, often new expressi
Disadvantages: Some times stories are ambiguous and end abruptly, just out of the blue.

Murakamis avid and tantalizing way of illustrating people, events and time presents an abstract and tangible insight of the world view of this writer. Clearly, the stories are a life expose of a man who dares to dream, to imagine, to survey the expanse of ... Read review
