What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami [Goodreads Review], by @ervin-lemark


What I Talk About When I Talk About Running by Haruki Murakami
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

My first thought after reading this book and being asked how do I feel about it would be ... heck, we runners are boring people.

Yes, it is a book about how the author sees his life as a runner. And tells us about his life as a writer too. He shares his feelings, thoughts, mishaps, expectations, reactions, ... at an easy pace suited for a long-distance runner.

It might be his character yet in my opinion as a fellow runner Mr. Murakami complicates things too much.

I believe and hope that in years to come he will reach the zen of running :)

Should you read the book? Are you a (long-distance) runner? Then read it. Do you like his work? Then read it too.

If you answered no to both questions then first try with one of Murakami's belletristic books and then come back to this one if you feel like it.

Happy feet - better and better!
