South of the Border, West of the Wind, 国境の南、太陽の西( Kokkyō no minami, taiyō no nishi) by Murakami is a book well worth reading. I read it in Portuguese. I bought the book during my last trip to Portugal, when I was looking for a book to read. I did not read it until now. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a pleasant nostalgic trip for me, back to the Tokyo where I lived for nine years, and an easy read with many interesting observations about life. Reading it in Portuguese gave it another dimension. Now I am going to buy some more books by Murakami, in Japanese this time. I hope there are also audio books out there, in Japanese I mean. Does anyone know?
