Killing Commendatore

Painting. One reading of Haruki Murakami’s novel titled, Killing Commendatore, may lead to one or two more for devoted fans. For me, once through was more than enough. An unnamed painter leaves a relationship and moves to the home of a famous artist where he finds a painting in the attic. What follows is a detachment from the world and a journey of discovery into ideas and metaphors and a search for understanding. Loneliness drags on for dozens of pages in this long novel, and ghostly and otherworldly figures become commonplace. Patient readers who enjoy literary fiction are those most likely to enjoy this novel. Rating: Three-star (It’s ok) Click here to purchase Killing Commendatore from
