🧵Book Review :

Norwegian wood was my first Murakami and to be completely honest... I hated it. I hated how he wrote women. I hated the story. I hated the protagonist. Then I gave the author another chance and read Kafka on the shore. I really liked this book. But still I hated how he wrote the women. They are just all the same. All bubbly and quirky and over sexualised. But I guess this just is his style of writing? I will give him another try because I really liked the story behind kafka but I can't see why people like Norwegian Wood. Maybe it's just me lmao because everyone else seems to love it

As long as we are here, we can get by without hurting others or being hurt by them because we know that we are "deformed." That's what distinguishes us from the outside world: most people go about their lives there unconscious of their deformities, while in this little world of ours the deformities themselves are a precondition.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
