Begone ye overblown romance to the M's with ye and there ye shall stay No will I be forced to read about the ample breasts of mysterious mute women; never again will I be witness to sexual encounters that are just a concept not the actual bumping of uglies that occurs when a man puts his penis inside of a woman's vaginaBanished will be the sporty assassinatrix who winds down by having one night stands with bald headed men; the stocky writer who oscillates between mathematics and prose and the occasional dalliance with a married girlfriend; and the misshapen cranium of an ugly man who skitters from one plot point to the next with grim purpose unsuspecting of the authorial foot that hovers god like above the story's flimsy re barAlong with these mundane presences so too will be exiled the various supporting paper cut outs wearing the clothes and skins of nurses and bodyguards and editors muttering incomprehensible directions that pose as mysterious truths in a world with two moons Get out all of you 925 pages was than your fair share and than its fair share was suandered on wordy mediocrity

Summary Ì PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB free ´ Haruki Murakami

Its unusual author that soon his previously placid life begins to come unraveled As Aomame’s and Tengo’s narratives converge over the course of this single year we learn of the profound and tangled connections that bind them ever closer a beautiful dyslexic teenage girl with a uniue vision; a mysterious religious cult that instigated a shoot out with the metropolitan police; a reclusive wealthy dowager who runs a shelter for abus. 184 is undoubtedly the biggest literary let down I have ever come across The synopsis and plot outline sound fascinating the reviews have been glowing am I trying to read a different 184 than everyone else Apparently not judging by the far too few reviews that sum up my feelings towards this nothing of a book One of my favourite lines from one of my favourite of these few reviews is as follows from theatlanticcom It's hard to believe that some of the critics praising 184 didn't really feel at times like throwing the book in the air and walking away Trying to say anything definite about it is like trying to nail Jell O to a wall Even the title's allusion to Orwell seems vague It's an elaborate puzzle which when assembled adds up to a picture of a perfect blank For me reading it was the literary euivalent of biting into a large pumped up soufflé After finishing five pounds of book I was still hungry — for a novel The only difference between this critic's view of the book and mine is that I remain unable to finish the damn thing Putting the nothingness of the book aside there are plenty of other frustrating issues to contend withThese are a few of the problems I personally had with 184Aomame comes across as a flat two dimensional character whose main purpose is to serve as an older male fantasy Within a few pages of meeting her she experiences flashbacks of a detailed lesbian encounter she experienced with a friend though she is not in fact lesbian bi sexual in the slightest bit attracted to woman This would not be an issue if it appeared to serve any purpose towards her character development but it doesn't Instead it begins to follow the pornographic trend of girl on girl sex for the sole purpose of pleasing men Literally Aomame and the other woman have sex for NO other reason then to attract the men they have picked up To clarify again Aomame doesn't particularly want to have sex with the other woman at all This sterotypically male fantasy further continues as the reader is told countless times how she is attracted only to much older men with receding hairlines and proceeds to detail each of these sexual encounters There is nothing wrong with any of the aforementioned as it stands to each their own and it would not be a problem if it served a purpose to the story but as far as I'm aware so far it really doesn't The story would in no way be impacted if any of these scenes were to be removed Aomame is in no way empowered by the depiction of her sex life instead she is an object a pornagraphic object again apparently designed for the titillation of the readerIf it's in the best interest of the book in uestion I am perfectly ok with reading about bigoted characters or even books written by writers with an obvious agenda that clashes with my own beliefs if the book is good and provokes thought 184 is not one of these books The blatant misogyny does not serve a purpose and therefore I must assume that it was not considered to be an issue at all for the purposes of the book I honestly felt that all the female characters in this were written as fantasy not just Aomame but Every Single Woman There is the older married girlfriend who serves no purpose other than to be a sexual object for Tengo she doesn't even have a name; there is the police woman who befriends Aomame and constantly wants sex with her though she is self declared completely straight and appears to serve no other purpose in the book she isn't grappling with her sexuality this isn't an exploration of multifaceted ueerness or a critiue of the heteronormative structures that this character exists within she simply is there to have girl on girl sex without the complications of actual character development; and even with Fuka Eri attention was spent on the shape of her breasts than on her merits as a person or writer It's also been brought to my attention that there are many other instances of blatant misogyny that I have missed in the review this is clearly not an exhaustive list and I only got two thirds of the way through the book Feel free to share thoughts below that's what the comment section is forOther books allow viewpoints such as this to be limited to the perspective of a character The narrator in Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World muses on his attraction to an slightly overweight woman and his surprise that she is attractive A little unpleasant yes but it fits in with how his character progresses He is largely respectful towards the girl in uestion and to the other women in the book and is overall a rather sympathetic character Hajime in South of the Border West of the Sun is rather unlikeable in this respect with the way he treats the women in his life but again this is part of the journey of his character 184 goes so far beyond that the sexism that permeates this entire story is not limited to character and is irredeemableTengo is likeable to a point but all his segments of the story are the most repetitive in the book which is a constant source of frustration Also and likely because of this he doesn't really do much He has a lot of sex with his older married girlfriend and we know that she is older and married because that statement appears to have taken the place of her name appearing at least 5 times in every chapter about Tengo view spoilerI will also admit that I grew very very weary of every conversation she had with Tengo being punctuated by lines such as she said to him massaging his scrotum in her hand hide spoiler

I guess I can now write this review since I've settled down from doing a victory lap around my house as a result of completing this steaming pile of hot garbage Maybe before I totally slam the book I should say what I did like but to be honest there was very little to like The plot wasn't bad The love story connection between Tengo Aomame was somewhat cute I could roll with all this What blows my mind is that Murakami felt he needed 900 pages to drag this whole shebang out The prose was so mundane and the narrative dragged on and on and on that it was difficult to accurately gauge the turning points and climax of the story Oh and let's not talk about the constant repetition and writing about wasting time while wasting my time because I'm reading about him writing about wasting time Are you still with me I enjoy mind twisting and mind bending elements in a novel but I need some sort of anchor to base these things on Murakami introduces Sakigake dohta maza and the Little People yet he only explores the periphery of these concepts especially the Little People Murakami please tell me who they are and what the deal is with them Like seriously I really want to know So then the uestion is what did he use the 900 pages for Honestly your guess is as good as mine because after this slugfest I remain completely and utterly bewildered Things also happen in this novel just because There is no explanation and very vague character development Upon completion I just felt I was left with nothing NothingI've heard positive things about some of his other works but after this experience I cannot say when next I will be picking up another Murakami to read It shall surely be awhile yet if ever ETA on 24 January 2014 135AM Central European Time CET1 By some miracle this review has garnered a boatload of likes Thank you good people 2 However I must say I am tired of random people flocking over to the comment section to loudly voice their disagreement uestion my reading choices uestion why I finished the book and just generally be condescending This is my review space I read the book didn't like it and expressed it all in a review If you disagree and you loved it that's absolutely fine Use your own review space to worship it Don't come to mine and be a nuisance 3 Goodreads please introduce the option to lock the comment section of specific reviews for the love of God ETA on 10 February 2014 1230AM Central European Time CET1 On January 31 2014 Goodreads honored my reuest and locked this review2 I am grateful that Goodreads honored my reuest and even though I am aware of the setting that blocks non friends from commenting on my reviews that still seems to me to be an extreme option I'm not averse to non friends commenting on my reviews I would just like the option to lock certain reviews to prevent them from descending into an unnecessary bitch fest from non friends like this one did prior to the lock
