The Strange Library

The Strange Library
Haruki Murakami

The Strange Library is about a boy who goes to a library (one of the reasons why I wanted to read this book...because it takes place in a library!) and gets led to a reading room deep in the library where he meets some strange characters. This book is written by Haruki Murakami, a very popular author. Very, very popular.

I have tried reading several of Haruki Murakami's books but, after reaching the last page, was always at a loss why he was so popular—all his fiction (or at least those that I have read) were just too weird for me. Except for The Strange Library, which, to me, still fell under the weird category, but was somehow engaging—I kept turning (or swiping, because I was reading it in its ebook format) the page. A pretty interesting story (but if there was any lesson in the story, I admit, I did not get it).
