Yes if you ve ever read a Murakami story Yes if you ever lace up a pair of trainers and run to your own personal rhythm Yes if you re interested in the art of the novel Yes if you re none of those You ll find a friend in these pagesAs you would expect from a writer of his pedigree a book about the activity he has pursued since 1982 running is about much that the non runnerrunning averse can get their teeth into As the writer himself says in Chapter One running is both exercise and a metaphor p10 This philosophy is made apparent in the approach he has taken to writing and presenting this book and he subseuently reveals much of his inner self as reflected upon the choices he has made and those activities he has chosen to pursueThis is not a brash book revealing a brash personality boosted by the buzz of running No it s a book about an individual constantly reinventing and fighting to find elements of a self that he is content to call his own I think this is something we can all relate to whatever lifestyle choices we make or have madeOf course as a runner a reader of Haruki and a bit of a word doodler you could say that this is a book tailored to me Again I think the book s reach is far broader than that as a reader I enjoy opening my mind to experiences that lie beyond my own world as you can only really be enlightened by that which you don t already know or have realisedThat s not to say that this book as I have already mentioned doesn t have any value for those to whom it appears to be made such as me far from it Through reading the reflections of someone as perceptive as Murakami on issues we well I for sure have all wrestled with or experienced you are able to smile at a metaphorical moment shared andor be comforted by a familiar problem or obstacle surmountedYes I guess for me the time with this book was like time spent with a good friend we talked we laughed we consoled we supported and then we went home It was all too brief and we haven t changed the world but the time we spent together was special and a great comfort to us bothAnd for those of you whose world of experience falls beyond that of Haruki running and writing you are therefore in a position to be enlightened in some small way about an aspect of each which takes me back to what I enjoy about a book and conseuently makes me think that you d enjoy it tooWhich is a long winded way of reiterating that I think there is something in this short book for everyone that whilst not maybe world changing is life affirming and entertaining and isn t that really enough to expect
