Haruki Murakami in General Fiction Posted December 8, 2008 · Report reply I really love murakami. I first read "hard boiled wonderland" and it just blew my mind. Nothing else has quite matched up to the sheer surreality of that one for me. I've read kafka on the shore, wind up bird and some of a collection of short stories I forget the name of. There's also an illustrated short story by Murakami here, the 100% perfect girl. Wondering now whether to read Norweigan Wood or to re-read hard boiled wonderland.
