Norwegian Wood

by Haruki Murakami

4.4/5

When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire.

“If you only read the books that everyone else is reading, you can only think what everyone else is thinking.”

Haruki Murakami, Norwegian Wood
