Re: What Are You Reading Right Now?

Finished Norwegian Wood by Haruki Murakami. Central themes are loss and the futile search for what is lost. The protagonist is a drama student in Tokyo of the 1960ies. Includes a lot of sex, suicides, student protests and drinking in bars. Great book! Made me listen to a lot of 60ies music lately.

Now reading (and almost done with) Time's Arrow by Martin Amis. If you're one of those people who say the Dead Island-trailer blew your mind, better don't read this book because then your whole body would just explode. It tells the life of a war criminal backwards, starting from his death. Relationships start with a fight and turn into romance. Blows heal people after Doctors scar them. Cabs pay money upfront to bring people where they don't want to be.
