Staff Reviews

Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki  is another masterpiece by the renowned Japanese author. I couldn’t put this book down.  How masterfully Murakami tells the story of one young man who becomes an outsider from   his tightknit group of friends from his youth.  He seeks to reconnect with his friends and to understand his relationship to others. “Some things are too complicated to explain in any language.”  This book resonates with you long after it has been read. --Heather

A beautifully told story of a young man struggling to process being suddenly cut out of his extraordinarily close group of friends lives. Finding love makes him confront his friends and the terrible secret they kept from him for years. Murakami has you questioning the barriers between dreams and reality, love, hate, and jealousy. Great book club read. --Christy
