All the Birds in the Sky is a really wierd book. It’s about two kids who don’t really fit in the world, who find in each other their only friend. Thier friendship has been prophesied to bring about chaos and the end of the world. Oh, and the girl is a witch and the boy a super genius who builds a mini time machine by the time he is 12. I have mixed feelings about the writing, but overall I am enjoying it.
Everytime I read Murakami, I am bowled over by the shifts in perspective his writing provides me with. His writing is slower than I typically like, but I always feel suspended in a dream. So far, Colorless feels like his other books, and I am ready to take my time and zen with this book.
