No. I never reread a book.
Captures to essence of Banville.
I consider John Banville/Benjamin Black to be one of the great contemporary writers. His characters and character descriptions are so detailed and convincing that the reader can picture and get to know the person. His stories are always interesting and often end with an unexpected twist.
Murakami's prose are exceptional. Descriptions of the city, the countryside and nature are quite beautiful. The characters are complex and many are troubled. The protagonist is a bit whiney and indecisive. Overall, the author dealt sympathetically with
I would recommend this book, but would probably be a better read than audio.
The narration was a major disappointment. Depiction of the female characters was cartoonish and distracted from the serious dialog.The recording quality was below par as I kept hearing the narrator take deep breaths.
I will listen to more of Murakami's books, provided that there is a different narrator.
