Some time ago, I went to the bookshop. In the window I saw a book by HARUKI MURAKAMI; I have already been writing about this beloved writer of mine. Well, the book that attracted my attention was KAFKA ON THE SHORE.
So I bought this paperback edition in English as there is no Slovene translation yet and I cannot read Japanese. It was even the last copy in the bookshop. But then I have had some other and more study-like books to read. Thus, my dear new Murakami is still waiting patiently to be read. Nevertheless my curiosity has forced me to do some occasional peeks. Now please do not laugh as I did when checking out original title - Kafka in Japanese is called Kafuka.
Recently, I again opened Kafka on the Shore. The book happened to open at the page 212. There was the thought you can find enclosed within the following lines. How strange coincidence. These words were exactly what I needed to hear at that particular time. And I still find some comfort in them at this moment.
This is why I so like Haruki Murakami.
In everybody's life there's a point of no return. And in a very few cases, a point where you can't go forward any more. And when we reach that point, all we can do is quietly accept the fact. This is how we survive.
