I’m reading two books right now, IQ84 by Haruki Murakami and Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace. Both are to a great degree thick, ML1 convoluted, long (more than 1,000 pages each), emotionally driven novels focused on the existential crisis.ML2
Haruki Murakami is my “favorite” writer—I emphasis “favorite” since I am unfortunately uncertain with regards to my rankings of books/writers—and his works have without any doubt changed the way I see individuals and the world. I’ve read 7 of his books up until now, and still, find it hard to explain why I respect Murakami and his style of writing to such an extent.ML3
Utilizing excellent depictions and discourse, Murakami passes on the most profound, darkest—frequently shrouded—sides of human instinct. Huge numbers of his characters encounter a sort of widespread, human depression that powers them to address reality. This is the reason the greater part of his works falls under the subgenre of “magical realism”ML4 . Murakami books depict the universe as a pitiless and unjustifiable place. He examines philosophical issues, for example, demise, time, self-identity, free will, nature of good and evil, and emotional and physical want from a pragmatist viewpoint. His work frequently occurs in interchange substances;ML5 felines converse with people, a Shinagawa monkey take’s the name of a lady and an interesting, legendary Sheep Man shows up suddenly and speakswithoutpauseslikethis. A few characters commit murder while others confer fraud. Some are “boring” and others toss funerals for phone circuit boxes. Some spend throughout the day savoring bourbon at a bar with the Rat ML6 while others leave on ventures looking for long-lost mothers and pinball machines. Majority of his characters take part in wild, irregular sex and some even fall back on cheating, a bad habit we regularly find in others, yet disregard inside ourselves. Murakami influences you to feel for these characters as they think about depression, distance, misfortune, maturity and the multifaceted nature of human connections. Murakami’s rundown of significantly unpredictable characters is endless, and this is only one part of what gives his books their lavishness.
Murakami’s capacity to reference jazz, popular and established music uncovers his broad learning and love of music. (Truly, he once owned a jazz club!) Murakami interweaves the universe of music with writing by including pieces by composers and artists. In fact, three of his books—Norwegian Wood, South of the Border, West of the Sun and Dance, Dance, Dance—all take their titles from popular songs. Regardless of the possibility that a reader isn’t a music lover, one can’t resist getting himself or herself hypnotized by Murakami’s words as they soften into rhythms and sounds.
You remember the feeling you get when you eat your most loved sort of food? That is the kind of feeling I get at whatever point I read one of Murakami’s books.
ML1I assume you mean long, which you already stated.
ML2How does this set your focus on Murakami as your favorite author? Instead of telling readers what books you are reading, tell them who your favorite author is any the general reasons why.
ML3The rest of the essay explains why you like him so I suggest deleting this sentence and instead add a different sentence that lists the reasons that you like this author.
ML4The period almost always goes inside the quotation mark.
ML5Word choice. Revise for clarity.
ML6Lower case. It works better to just refer to him as a rat instead of it being a character’s name.
