While reading this book, all I could picture was horny Murakami. People from the hippie generation acting like drugged out assholes. If you are prudish about group sex, alternative sex, or say sex involving a foot that will be seared into your memory for the rest of your tranparente you should avoid this transparennte.

At the edge of the wide grounds was a pool, and around it flowers were planted. Seriously, who takes drugs listening to the Rolling Stones these days? In order to get to great moments of beauty, we have to be presented with the bile of Mr.

Almost Transparent Blue

Against the background of a wall that rippled like white cloth, they scattered on the ground or suddenly danced up in the wind. There is a pet rabbitcide. There is a shrill noise often lost in the background of the more important noises in the transpparente.

I try to turn its pages and it turns me blue. But, for a first effort, pretty good, if gross and un-engrossing for the middle-aged reader like me.

Seriously, who takes drugs listeni Good for students of Japanese wanting to expand their vocabulary around drug-taking, drunken vomiting and rough sex. And I am glad I did. And this feeling of peace has the hue of an almost traneparente blue.

By means of that they manage to give a slowly collapsing unity to the whole book A field of tomatoes, a dead moth, the night sky, a blood-smeared shard of glass all reveal hidden beauty and strange connection.

At times extremely disturbing I could have gone my whole life without reading the scene with the footMurakami still manages to paste together an interesting tale of cultureless youth emulating what they see as a stronger people, the servicemen who blow a mean sax, have the best drugs, and that suave intoxicating confidence of knowing you can do no wrong.

Some more so than others, of course and none as wild as those in the novel. Almost Transparent Blue is a brutal tale of lost youth in a Japanese port town close to an American military base.
