Wind/Pinball: Two Early Novels by Haruki Murakami
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Wind's first few chapters seem like a very unsophisticated attempt at a first novel. The rest of it is somewhat interesting. His friend Rat isn't very smart but he's at least an interesting and developed character. It's hard to even keep the story in your mind after reading it though. Let's say three stars?
Pinball, while more memorable, is terrible. Rat is again the best character. The main character isn't someone I can imagine or relate to in any way. Two stars?
