Chosen by my very good friend, Sarah.
What Sarah says: 'The novel is so unusual and surreal. It's really beautifully written, but one of the saddest books I've ever read.'
Amazon blurb: 'When he hears her favourite Beatles song, Toru Watanabe recalls his first love Naoko, the girlfriend of his best friend Kizuki. Immediately he is transported back almost twenty years to his student days in Tokyo, adrift in a world of uneasy friendships, casual sex, passion, loss and desire - to a time when an impetuous young woman called Midori marches into his life and he has to choose between the future and the past.'
Personally, I've not heard of this novel which is why I enjoy writing these 'one book you must read' posts so much because there's such a variety & definitely something for everyone.
If you have a brilliant book that you'd like to add to the collection contact me via twitter & you could be one of the 'must reads' over the coming weeks :)
