Kafka on the Shore by Haruki Murakami translated by Philip Gabriel
Kafka Tamura runs away from home at fifteen, under the shadow of his father’s dark prophecy. The ageing Nakata, tracjer of lost cats, who never recovered from a bizarre childhood affliction, finds his pleasantly simplified life suddenly turned upside down. As their parallel odysseys unravel, cats converse with people; fish tumble from the sky; a ghost-like pimp deploys a Hegel-spouting girl of the night; a forest harbours soldiers apparently un-aged since World War II. There is a savage killing, but the identity of both victim and killer is a riddle – one of many which combine to create an elegant and dreamlike masterpiece.
I wrote a review on this and added some of my favorite lines here.
Matched by Ally Condie (Matched Trilogy #1)
Cassia has always trusted the Society’s choices. And when her best friend appears on the Matching screen, Cassia is certain he is the one… until she sees another face flash for an instant before the screen fades to black. Now she is faced with impossible choices: between Xander and Ky, between the only life she’s known and a path no one dares to follow… between perfection and passion.
Crossed by Allie Condie (Matched Trilogy #2)
Cassia flees to the Outer Provinces in search of Ky only to discover he has escaped into the canyons. But even as he risks everything to reunite with Ky, a few surprises from her former life may haunt her… or change the game once again.
Reached by Allie Condie (Matched Trilogy #3)
One young woman has raged against those who threaten to keep away what matters most – family, love, choice. Now Cassia’s quiet revolution is about to explode into full-scale rebellion. The wait is over.
‘Seek and ye shall find.’ With these words echoing in his head, eminent Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon awakes in a hospital bed with no recollection of where he is or how he got there. Nor can he explain the origin of the macabre object that is found hidden in his belongings.
A threat to his life will propel him and a young doctor, Sienna Brooks, into a breakneck chase across the city of Florence. Only Langdon’s knowledge of the hidden passageways and ancient secrets that lie behind its historic facade can save them from the clutches of their unknown pursuers.
With only a few lines from Dante’s dark and epic masterpiece, Inferno, to guide them, they must decipher a sequence of codes buried deep within some of the most celebrated artefacts of the Renaissance – sculptures, paintings, buildings – to find the answers to the puzzle which may, or may not, help them save the world from a terrifying threat.
That’s it for my 2nd book haul, if you want to read my first book haul, you can check it out here.
Cheers to more books! 😄
