Description

Haruki Murakami is unquestionably Japan's leading novelist with his many works - fiction and non-fiction - consistently reflecting contemporary Japanese life while, unusually, sustaining an international appeal through a deeply human perspective.

Sputnik Sweetheart is his ninth novel, written in 1999, and tells the story of a young woman - Sumire, an aspiring writer - who falls in love with an older, successful businesswoman and wine expert, Miu. Their relationship is told through the eyes of Sumire's close (male) friend. It is a curious, mysterious tale, told with the compassion and quirkiness that is the hallmark of Murakami's writing. Translated from Japanese to English by Philip Gabriel.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

Stunning story and narration.

Although I love all of Haruki Murakami's collection, because of its subtle beauty, I am very particular when choosing an audiobook of his novels. This one I love the most, mainly for the wonderful narrator: he vividly and expertly recreates a strange world of Murakami.

Wonderful

Murakami seems to deliver beautiful stories so effortlessly. It's like listening to a great Haiku that lasts a long time. I loved this little indulgence, so beautifully crafted with such full characters and a delicious whimsy that is like McEwen at his best and Rushdie at his poetic standard. And all of this about something so mundane, yet so extraordinary as the disappearance of a treasured friend, a search and an ending. Of course, there are the recurring themes of loneliness and not fitting in and even a cameo cat. Simple and wonderful.
I'm not convinced about Adam Sims. I see he has read other Murakami and that he's got acting credentials from serious theatre in the UK. The latter intrigued me given the US accent he used for this performance. I like his men and I am indifferent about his women.

Murakamis style reminded me of an IKEA catalogue

I used to be a huge Murakami fan about 10 years ago. So much so that I got an overdose and made a long break not reading his books. Now re-reading (listening to) 'Sputnik, Sweetheart' I had the feeling his style, his sentences, the descriptions, the chatacters, all resemble the rooms in IKEA catalogues. Perfect, simple, so pretty it's not true. Nobody lives in them. The performance was great though, I could hear the different voices of the characters, sometimes even totally forgetting that it's a mens voice.
