『海辺のカフカ』

Viola1102

近所のホームセンターでビオラが売られていたので早速買ってきて植えた。春がくる前に、いよいよ冬がやってくるのだなあという気持ちになる。

そんなおり、ちょっと体調を崩して2日ほど寝込んだ。今回はさほど頭痛がひどくなかったので、村上春樹の『海辺のカフカ』 上下巻 新潮社 を久しぶりに読んだ。

この小説は、『世界の終りとハードボイルド・ワンダーランド』と同様に2つの物語が平行して進行していく構造になっていて、ひとつはカフカ少年の話、もうひとつはナカタ老人とホシノ青年の話になっている。

で、村上春樹の小説によくあるように、冥界やパラレルワールドが出てくるし、歩哨(センチネル)が出てくる話でもあり、ハルキワールド全開なので、春樹ファン以外にはお勧めしにくい内容だと思う。

また、『ねじまき鳥クロニクル』ほどではないにしろ残酷な場面も出てきて、その部分を読んでると病状が悪化しそうだった。

でも、読み終わってみると、全体としては15歳のカフカ少年の成長、更生の話と思われ、読む側に明日への元気を与えてくれるような小説だった。

何よりこの小説の魅力は、ナカタさんという、猫と会話ができたりするユニークかつユーモラスなキャラクターと、ホシノくんという、今までの村上春樹の小説には出てこなかったようなタイプの人物が醸し出す味わいだと思う。

で、『ねじまき鳥クロニクル』ほどではないにしろ、やっぱりいろいろな謎が残されたままだったりするのも、余韻が残る感じでいい。

そういえば、この『海辺のカフカ』は柳楽優弥主演で舞台化されたそうだ。どんな感じだったのだろう。BSあたりで放送してくれないかなあ。

で、なぜこの時期に『海辺のカフカ』なのか、については、近いうちにエントリーを書く予定です。

オカダさん、こんばんは。

我が家はもっぱら食べられる植物ばかりになってしまい、
お花はご無沙汰になってしまいました。
ビオラも可愛らしくて好きなのですが・・・。

お元気になりましたか~?
『海辺のカフカ』ですか・・・。
これは読んだばかりの頃しつこく繰り返して読んだ記憶があります。

>余韻が残る感じでいい。

そういう印象を持っています。
私は『ねじまき鳥クロニクル』にすっかりからめとられてしまって、『カフカ』には妙に親近感を持ってしまいました。

『ダ・ヴィンチ 2012年 10月号 いまこそ、村上春樹』を図書館で借りてきました!
読んだ息子が、俄然興味を示し、『1Q84』読みたがったりして雑誌の力ってスゴイと思いました。。

Pokeさん、こんばんは。

>我が家はもっぱら食べられる植物ばかりになってしまい、
>お花はご無沙汰になってしまいました。

そうでしたか。夫の方はずっと頑張ってらっしゃるんですね。


おかげさまで元気になりました。やっぱりもう無理はできませんね。


>これは読んだばかりの頃しつこく繰り返して読んだ記憶があります。

読み始めると止まらなくなりました。面白くてクセになりますね。
『カフカ』少年、それまでの『僕』ほどではないにしろ親近感が湧くキャラクターですよね。

雑誌って、やっぱり商品(ダ・ヴィンチ の場合は本)を買ってもらうためにうまく作ってあって、そういう力はスゴイですよね。内田樹先生を持ってくるあたりもさすがですし。

『1Q84』なら息子さんも面白く読めるのではないでしょうか。

Today, I went to the beach with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
