I've read two books by Haruki Murakami so far. I felt attracted all the time while I was reading, and the weird thing is that I don't know why. I was surprised to know that my writing teacher (an American) and my girlfriend (a Taiwanese) also felt the same way. He was awarded in the Czech Republic and in Jerusalem. Literary critics all over the world say that "he casts a spell."
I wonder what are the elements that make his novels so addictive and popular for people all over the globe?
