Music has that power to revive memories, sometimes so intensely that they hurt.
Pick any damn Murakami book and he s gonna introduce you to the finest musical masterpieces that exist He has a thing for the Beatles, we all know that in the process of reading his books, I ve unknowingly developed a taste for them as well The book s title is based on Beatle s famous song Yesterday , it s a forlorn song about lost love.
So, basicallyYesterday is a story about these two guys, Kitaru and Tanimura Honestly, I love this coming of age narration from Murakami, sounds easy going and avant garde Kitaru is this idiosyncratic guy who asks his friend, Tanimura to date his girlfriend Erika for him.
Despite the short span of time, this short story is going to have a lasting impression on my mind There s something about the way it s written, so simplistic and quirky.
Here are some of the excerpts from the book that I really lovedIs it hard on you she asked Is what hard Suddenly being on your own after being a couple Sometimes, I said honestly But maybe going through that kind of tough, lonely experience is necessary when you re young Part of the process of growing up You think so The way surviving hard winters makes a tree grow stronger, the growth rings inside it tighterDo you still dream about the moon made of ice I asked.
Her head snapped up and she stared at me Very calmly, slowly, a smile spread across her face A completely natural, open smileYou remember my dream she asked For some reason, I do Even though it s someone else s dream Dreams are the kind of things you can borrow and lend out, I said That s a wonderful idea, she said.
But when I look back at myself at age twenty what I remember most is being alone and lonely I had no girlfriend to warm my body or my soul, no friends I could open up to No clue what I should do every day, no vision for the future For the most part, I remained hidden away, deep within myself Sometimes I d go a week without talking to anybody That kind of life continued for a year A long, long year Whether this period was a cold winter that left valuable growth rings inside me, I can t really say At the time I felt as if every night I, too, were gazing out a porthole at a moon made of ice A transparent, eight inch thick, frozen moon But I watched that moon alone, unable to share its cold beauty with anyone.
It s a beautiful story compiling all the emotions of love, friendship, and loneliness But, it not a YA book, trust me The timelines he has presented here, makes you feel like you re yourself growing old with the character and makes me wonder how you have no control on time or over life.
Also, this is the first time he has given a proper ending to his story and I was like Am I dreaming or is it really happening How come a Murakami book has a defined ending I think he is a master in terms of writing short stories.
I m so glad I came across this story and read it, recommended to all the Murakamists I read the first page in order to decide if I should read this bookBut before deciding, I finished the book YesterdayIs two days before tomorrow,The day after two days ago image It feels as though these things happened just Yesterday Music has that power to revive memories, sometimes so intensely that they hurt.
I m new to Murakami but I ve learned two things 1 Dreams always mean something Probably Well, maybe not But sort of Kinda 2 A piece of music can define a person s life or a relationship between people And this usually goes beyond the hey, they re playing our song or the idea of a soundtrack for a generation With this story, that piece of music is Yesterday by The Beatles The story follows two young men, one is too normal and the other is a bit of an eccentric The eccentric has made it his goal to learn the Kansai dialect, despite the fact that he s not from the region and most people find his voice rather grating He has also made up fake lyrics to Yesterday that go a little something like, Yesterday is two days before tomorrow And so on The eccentric is stuck in arrested development and he asks his friend to go out with his girlfriend so that she can be happy and so that he can rest easy knowing she s with a good guy There s not a whole lot to say about this one It s a story about love, loneliness, and lost friendship It s short but sweet The characters are likable, the dialogue really flows, and it comes to a satisfying end I m not sure that I m going to remember Yesterday for very long, but I enjoyed it and I m glad I read it.
