Norwegian Wood - Haruki Murakami I read this book because there is movie made after this story and the main male role plays Kenichi Matsuyama.The book's plot seems at first glance simple but it covers such things as life, death, growing, hope, loss, illness, love and loneliness.I liked all characters excluding Midori; she struck me as selfish and nagging person.It is beautifully written and I was a bit sad when I finished reading.
