Suggested reading sequence for Haruki Murakami’s books

Hey bookworms, I’ve seen Murakami’s books in the past years but they never really motivated me to purchase (talk about judging a book by its cover). Recently, however, Ive hopped onto the Murakami bandwagon while in Nepal and fallen in love with his works. The first book I read was Kafka on the Shore (AMAZINGGGG!) and I’ve completed Norwegian Wood last week. I’ve since ordered a couple of his other novels and I wanted to hear your thoughts regarding the reading order of his books. If you have any suggestions, do let me know! Otherwise, I’m on a lookout for the following (specific cover) editions!

    Agree with cheriise. I’ve read a lot of his books over the years. They’re pretty non-linear (as far as I know), but they have similar recurring themes you’ll notice. I think u should just check out the summaries and pick the book that best fits your reading mood. Cheers✌️

    Hi Coolbeansbro, the mentioned Haruki Murakami's works are very thoughtful indeed. In addition, you may want to consider "Men Without Women", which illustrates his observation aptitude of social settings and intimate relationships with a touch of light humour.

    Omg guys. Thank you so much! Since the update of Carousell, I haven’t been able to click into this page, there’s always an “internal error”. Thanks for all your recommendations! I’m currently reading Wind-Up Bird and I have gotten my hands on colorless tsukuru and killing commendatore. Can’t wait to collect more! I just did a Norwegian Wood pilgrimage in Tokyo. It was pretty amazing 😉 but get ready to work those calf muscles because there’s a lot of walking!

    @dexter_p I see, but is it a fictional story or an essay type? I am actually intrigued because he has an interesting way of writing about women.

    @coolbeansbro, great enthusiasm from you in participating in the Norwegian Wood pilgrimage. 👏 "Men Without Women" is collection of fictional short stories.
