It's Friday again and I thought that I'd participate in this blog hop again! It's hosted by the fabulous Parajunkee and Alison Can Read.

So, today we have an activity we can participate in... and I thought, hell yes, yes, I will participate!

It goes something like this:

ACTIVITY:  Write a letter to your favorite character. Rant, rave or gush…just pretend like they are real and you just want to let them know a “few things”. – Activity courtesy of author, Kelly Walker

Dear Toru Okada

I hope you're well.

I was wondering if you could answer a few questions, please find them below.

  1. Why do you enjoy sitting down wells? Is it the quiet? Is it the darkness? I mean, you almost died down one once... just sitting there, sleeping. You didn't really enlighten us during your lengthy hallucinations.
  2. Did you ever find that blasted wind-up bird? Did you throttle it. I would have.
  3. Why do you only fall for very strange, emotionally deranged and sexually unbalanced women?
  4. Do you still rate passing men's balding heads?
  5. Why do you never seem to have any control over your life? Do you enjoy being a floater?
  6. Did you ever try to lick that mark on your face yourself? Did you get any visions or impressions?
I love you. I do. But you're weird. I just wanted a few answers so that I may love you more.

Many thanks,

That was a letter to my favourite crazy, in Haruki Murakami's The Wind-up Bird Chronicles.


  1. Bah! I don't even know who this is but I loved it. "I love you. I do. But you're weird." Sounds like someone I need to know!

  2. Haha! Most definitely. It is the oddest and most haunting book I've ever read. It's bizarre and frustrating. Read it with caution!

  3. Yeah, I haven't heard of this one either but all those questions certainly make it sound interesting.
