They shared a bond as they were both outsiders who read voraciously. Sumira was named after a character in a Mozart song, a beautiful song with what Samira felt were ugly lyrics. This irked her. Why would her mother name her after a character in an ugly story? Sumira meets Miu, a successful business woman, at a wedding and falls in love with her. Miu recognises something she likes in Sumira and asks her to come work with her. I had to admit to myself that Murakami could be likened to a broken record, constantly skipping and replaying the same themes, but when he produces something so beautiful, you can forgive repetition.
When Miu phones K in a panic during the night I looked across at the phone near me.
I half expected it to ring. But instead it just displayed the time, My partner woke a little later as K was travelling. This look always made me smile. I hardly got to see it with her being an early-riser and me a night owl. She asked if I was okay and I told her I was.
I asked if the music was bothering her. And with that she retreated, my own little Sputnik.

I was still awake, no chance of sleep. They had found a light source and were endlessley and confusedly running into the glass barrier between themselves and the light. Sumira had been unable to write for so long. And now a breakthrough. But not for the poor beetles.

As K came home again, alone and lonely, I did not feel lonely. The tortoise-shell cat went by on the fence outside on her night time and humanless adventures. Living his life one day at a time. And I was done. I closed the book and looked up thinking of K and the phone rang. Who could it be at this time of night? View all 9 comments. Nov 25, Daniel Clausen rated it it was amazing Shelves: top-books , books-of , books-of Reading Sputnik Sweetheart is like returning home. As the saying goes, you can't step in the same river twice So it is with books.
You can read the same words again and again, but since you are different, the book is different too. This time, as I read this book, I dwelled on the topic of lost things. Drawing them closer, holding on to them. Knowing all the while that their lives are fleeting. Great people and influences in my life that have moved away or moved on.
They're not like books, stationary objects with fixed text.
People really do disappear, though often in mundane ways. And it's hard to find them because mundane distances can be as bad and as troublesome as magical ones. How many Sumires have I known in my life? No less than four I would say. None of them vanished like smoke, and yet they are far away somehow. Like a Beatnik Sputnik writer, I return to this review looking for the portal.
There is an island somewhere where all of the Sumires in my life still live. They are there waiting for me. My phone rings. It's not from one of the Sumires I lost, but from one of the Sumires I have not yet found. You know what you have to do. I need to cut the throat of a dog.

I need to spill blood But I am different. I don't need to spill blood. Spilling blood was only a metaphor anyway. I think about all the lost Sumires in my life. I open the book one more time.

For the most part, I was utterly bored when reading this book. It contains long passages of bland thoughts and descriptions, and I was starting to think that I had grown away from Haruki Murakami and his story-telling which I used to absolutely love I have read quite a lot of his novels through the years. However, halfway through the novel I encountered what was to become one of my favourite literary scenes it contains a ferris wheel , and from This turned out to be quite an interesting read.
However, halfway through the novel I encountered what was to become one of my favourite literary scenes it contains a ferris wheel , and from then onwards the book picked up and caught my attention. For that reason, my rating is an average one. In the end, I quite liked this novel, even though it isn't my favourite of his.

Yup, I just finished another Murakami novel. I'm going to sleep and dream on this one tonight and write the review tomorrow.
No really. I fully intend to write a real review, I'm just uncertain how I feel.
