BSP Episode 336: Gone Girl

Hey, look, they haven’t podfaded.

We actually have a few episodes in the can and even though our schedule is still erratic, we figured that we should probably let you hear them… and let you hear the new co-hosts (in a few weeks when we catch up to that point.)

Back Seat Book Club – Book Twenty-Seven: Colourless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage

February 9th, 2015 · Scott · No Comments

Author: Haruki Murakami, Philip Gabriel (Trans.)

Knopf Publishing Group

Plot Summary - Here he gives us the remarkable story of Tsukuru Tazaki, a young man haunted by a great loss; of dreams and nightmares that have unintended consequences for the world around us; and of a journey into the past that is necessary to mend the present. It is a story of love, friendship, and heartbreak for the ages.

Quick Thoughts:

  • Scott is a Fake Book Guy(TM)
  • Lightweight read
  • No magic realism. Which is weird.
  • What is the Pilgrimage. Where is it?
  • Crime?
  • Striving upward is evil, creativity is good.
  • Betrayals and letting go as recurring issues.
  • Awkward sex in lucid dreams (check your Murakami bingo cards).
  • Show tropes.
  • In relation to other works by the author.
  • Scott is not threatening you.

“One heart is not connected to another through harmony alone. They are, instead, linked deeply through their wounds. Pain linked to pain, fragility to fragility. There is no silence without a cry of grief, no forgiveness without bloodshed, no acceptance without a passage through acute loss. That is what lies at the root of true harmony.” 

Next Time: A Dirty Job by Christopher Moore
