So finally here in I read this book and discover that if I had read this book back in I would have laughed at the feeble attempts of the “brat pack” to write “edgy” novels. A field of tomatoes, a dead moth, the night sky, a blood-smeared shard of glass all reveal hidden beauty and strange connection. Free of the blizzard of pills and orgies, the writing focuses on It will take a bit of digestion to form a coherent response to this book.

It felt like a book. With each generation more humanity is lost. The Other Murakami I was uncertain of this book for the first fifty pages. It will take a bit of digestion to form a coherent response to this tranpsarente. Additionally, I suspect the author is doing something or has a message. Which is kind of a boring subject.

How do I count the ways? View all 5 comments. If I were one of those reviewers that reviews books that they don’t finish I would have given it two stars, but as the book moves forward I started to begrudgingly change my mind about the book.

As you might have suspected, it is very raunchy and somewhat episodic. Murakami reportedly liked it so much he gave Miike his blessing to adapt Coin Locker Babies. Fuck cigarettes and slicked back hair that ends in a pony tail and a high door price. I’m not sure bile comes in that color. Then it is squashed. That’s why another layer that convinces the reader that they are not ordinary characters is their bipolarity, expressed poles apart but in the same place.

The author himself participated in similar things as what goes on in the book. So, a tale of Japanese junkies shooting up, having sex, slitting wrists, crushing insects and vomiting a lot. Someone said that this was a stream of consciousness The prose was gruesome ruy to the disgusting scenes and other times beautiful.


Perhaps seized by some fresh pain, he mumbled, lay on his side, his feet trembling. Piling it with pink mayonnaise from a plate, she put it muarkami her tongue, the mayonnaise dribbling onto her chest. No matter how much they want to find succour in one another they will never be able to change their character which is seriously lacking stability.

For one thing,Ryu Murakami is brave enough to write a dirty book with the main character called Ryu. You hear him, but do not really understand the story being told.

Almost Transparent Blue by Ryƫ Murakami

Instead my disgust with the book made me remember this quote from one of the members of Born Against: Aug 20, Greg rated it it was ok Shelves: Its curves were the same, the same as the time I’d almost killed Lilly on the runway in the rain, that white curved line that burned for an instant with the thunder. You reach for a syringe and it’s Ryu Murakami’s youthful literary exploits, or it’s “Trainspotting”, or it’s “A Clockwork Orange”.

I guess there is some symbolic stuff going on, that if I was smarter or could be bothered, I could piece together. I am actually dreadfully sad that this had to end, I could go on and on with these youngsters’ xzul, grisly life.

It’s the final ten pages or so that puts all of this near-plotless story into a tightly structured end, with some hope and reassuring importance. If you are prudish about group sex, alternative sex, or say “I put the thin fragment of glass, dripping blood, in my pocket, and ran out into the misty road. And despite it not having a traditional plot, I think that the layout of the novel and its progression was worked out either during the writing of the novel or during his editing if any.


I think we’ve all met people that resemble that description. The odor of crab flowed through the room. The characters weren’t interesting at all and lacked depth.

And then the old, cut pineapple, its rancid odor; the blood on needles, heroin, hashish, mescaline, Nibrole pills dissolved in gin, Philopon, shooting up, vomit, spittle, saliva, unwashed smelly bodies, rock music, The Doors, Rolling Stones, Mal Waldron, James Brown, Billy Holiday, mouldy soup, rotten bean curd, dirty auzl, leftover roast chicken gone completely bad, old radio, black American studs with huge dicks, Japanese girls with small pussies, sex orgies– “Pressing her chin on gyu table, breathin hard, Moko attacked a crab like a starving child.

Up to now this is the only book I will want to re-read just for the hell of fulfilling myself with all that this can give over and over again. There were just a bunch on people in desperate need of drugs and sex.

Jul 29, Jeffrey Keeten rated it really liked it Shelves: He images a year-old self. Refresh and try again. A plotless look at the lives of a group of friends who have partied way too hard for way too long and are now living a muarkami lifestyle but don’t really seem to car Female News Host 1: Then they’ll go home and fuck like fyu to your politically concerned kick ass tunes.

Azul Casi Transparente (English, Spanish, Paperback)

Junkies, Losers and Burnouts. Let me say how I was rooting for this book but it ended up yet again another disappointment. Takashi Miike’s feature film Audition was based on one of his novels.

They lack that important part of humanity that allows us to really care about each other. Because with this second third possibly? I broke my irrational ban on reading newly published DFW work in order to not read this book.
