'Norwegian Wood' stands with 'The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle' as one of Haruki Muarakami’s best and most popular works. As usual, it deals with the world around us with a sense of melancholy, charm, loss- all weaved through with his irrepressible wit, managing to make the more whimsical aspects of his work seems normal.

When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of unseasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and burning desire - to a time when an impetuous young women call Mirdori marches into his life and he has to choose between the future and the past.

Murakami fills this world with characters like matches and candles- some who burn bright then simply disappear, others who seem to always be there, burning slowly yet filling the voids that others left behind, even though they owe so much to their first meetings. Truly, Murakami has crafted a book whose characters slowly seep into you, only when it’s over will you realise the subtle spell it cast over you.
