A book about a boy and a… strange library. Haruki Murakami’s The Strange Library was first published in 2005 and in December it was translated and published in English. A children’s novella that adults will like and a must-have for every Murakami fan. The illustrations were really cool!
Here are my favorite highlights:
“Why do I act like this, agreeing when I really disagree, letting people force me to do things I don’t want to do?”
“The world follows its own course. Each possesses his own thoughts, each treads his own path. So it is with your mother, and so it is with your starling. As it is with everyone. The world follows its own course.”
“No matter what the situation may be, I still take pleasure in witnessing the joy of others.”
