Hombres sin mujeres by Haruki Murakami

Into the Wild

Read Hombres sin mujeres Online Free - Haruki Murakami ofrece a los lectores siete relatos en torno al aislamiento y la soledad que preceden o siguen a la relación amorosa: hombres que han perdido a una mujer, o cuya relación ha estado marcada por el desencuentro, asisten inermes al regreso de los fantasmas del pasado, viven el enamoramiento como una enfermedad letal, son incapaces de establecer una comunicación plena con la pareja, o ven extrañamente interrumpida su historia de amor. Otros experimentan atormentados amores no correspondidos o, incluso, como en el relato protagonizado por una metamorfosis kafkiana, desconocen todavía los mecanismos del afecto y del sexo. Sin embargo, las verdaderas protagonistas de estos relatos —llenos de guiños a los Beatles, el jazz, Kafka, Las mil y una noches o, en el caso del título, Hemingway—, son ellas, las mujeres, que, misteriosas, irrumpen en la vida de los hombres para desaparecer, dejando una huella imborrable en la vida de aquellos que las han amado, o de los que, al menos, intentaron amarlas.

I saw Murakami yesterday. I don't mean that in a metaphorical way: I literally saw him in my home town of Odense, Denmark. He received the Hans Christian Andersen Literary Award and made a few small appearances while he was here, one of which was at our local library. There were only 180 of us th...

Audiobook... I LOVED THESE STORIES!!!! They penetrated through my ears and my thoughts. I was hanging on to every word walking around town completely captivated. The only thing I didn't like -- only for a couple of minutes-is when switching to a new story... I wasn't ready to transition. Yet, they...

When you delve into a Murakami book you’re never quite sure what you’ll find – will it be surreal and mind bending, like The Wind-up Bird Chronicle, or darkly realistic like Norwegian Wood? Well this collection of short stories certainly has more in common with the latter, though not entirely so...

Men Without Women is a collection of stories about despairing men and loneliness; it depicts men who try to cope with the sorrows of life after their loved one has departed from them. Unable to move on, the men spend the rest of their days lamenting what they will never again feel. So this is a s...

“HE WOKE TO discover that he had undergone a metamorphosis and become Gregor Samsa.” Yes, that's right... Kafka in reverse! This must be the best opening line that I have seen in a short story for a long while. It is not the first one in this collection, but it certainly grabbed my attention. Th...

Loved it! I always love Murakami, even his less than perfect works but this is an excellent addition to his oeuvre. I generally prefer his novels to his short fiction but these stories are wonderful. The stories all center around the loneliness of the male protagonists. There are missed connection...

Hay autores que cuando te enteras que van a sacar un libro nuevo lo celebras por todo lo alto. Esperas, cuentas los días, y corres el mismo día de su publicación para por fin tenerlo en tus manos. Lo observas, le das la vuelta, lo abres por la mitad y lo saboreas un poco más antes de ponerte mano...

"That's what it is like to lose a woman. And at a certain time, losing one woman means losing all women. That's how we become Men Without Women." -- Haruki Murakami, Men Without Women This is a soft Murakami. A lot of his novels are dreamlike, but this one seems more like an emotional smell than a...

Dreams are the kind of things you can—when you need to—borrow and lend out. You know how, for many people, reading books is like travelling without leaving the comfort of their living rooms? For me, reading Murakami is like returning home after a long and exhaustive trip. His prose, his style, a...

Υπάρχουν δύο τρόποι να κοιτάξει κανείς τον Μουρακάμι: μέσα από το βλέμμα της δημόσιας, άμυαλης γνώμης, που σχηματίζεται αυθαίρετα, και θέλει τον Μουρακάμι εσαεί ηττημένο υποψήδιο νομπελίστα. Και υπάρχει και η άλλη, του αναγνώστη που θα δει τον Μουρακάμι μέσα από τα μάτια αυτών που αγαπάνε την γρα...
