『女のいない男たち』

Suzuran0509


スズランの花が咲き、ゴールデンウィークも終わった。気がつけば2ヶ月もこのブログを更新していなかった。いろいろと慌ただしかったしなあ。

Umi0509


そのゴールデンウィークは、特に出かけることもなく、家でのんびりした。一日だけ、天気のいい日に近くの海へ行き、のんびり本を読んだ。

読んだのは、村上春樹の新作短編集『女のいない男たち』 文藝春秋。6つの短編が収められていて、うち4つは『文藝春秋』に掲載されたもの。「シェエラザード」が雑誌『MONKEY』に掲載されたもので、本のタイトルにもなった「女のいない男たち」は表題作として書き下ろし。

最初に「まえがき」と未読の2編を読み、後から『文藝春秋』に掲載されたものを読んだ。どれも村上春樹の短編らしい、メタファーとウィットに富んだ、味わいのあるものだった。

大きく分けると、比較的リアルなんだけどストーリーがやや特殊なもの「ドライブ・マイ・カー」などの系統のものと、幻想的、非現実的なもの「木野」などの系統のものがあって、そのどちらも読み応えがあり、もっと続きが読みたいと思わずにはいられなかった。

もちろん、最初から短編として書かれたものなのだから、「もうおしまい?!」と思うのは当然のことだ。謎が解明されないのも、意図してのことだろうし。

オカダはあまり短編小説が好きではないのだけど、村上春樹の作品だけは読んできていて、読む度ごとに短編小説もなかなか面白いものだなと思う。といって、他の作家のものを読もうとは思わないのだけど。

このぶんでいくと、来年あたりには次の長編小説が読めるかもしれない。今から楽しみにしておこう。

オカダさん、こんばんは。
ちょっとご無沙汰ですね~

すずらん、かわいい~大好きな花です。
こんな風に可憐に生きたいものだと思います^^;

『女のいない男たち』、読まれたのですね~
春樹さんのお書きになるものは、何でも面白いですよね。
私もこれはまだ読んでいないので、楽しみです。

休みが続くとなかなかのんびりできないので、ちょっとうらやましいです。
お陰で読書は中断したままです。
いつか気ままに読書三昧の旅をしてみたいと、思っています。。

Pokeさん、こんばんは。
はい、ご無沙汰いたしました。

スズラン、ほんとに可憐ですよね。
可憐に生きる、いいですね。オカダは可憐とはほど遠いですが(^_^;。

この本の感想を是非聞きたいです。

Pokeさんはお休みも活動的なので、こちらこそ羨ましいですが(^_^)。
いいですね、気ままに読書三昧の旅。オカダはびっしり計画を立てる方なので、そういう旅もしてみたいです。

There are two basic ways to delete duplicates in i - Tunes Code Generator. About one fourth of travelers buy their plane tickets online because it is a quick and easy way to compare airline travel and make a purchase. If you like a set of wedding stationery but it is in the wrong colour scheme or you would like something changing, email the company and ask.

Hey! Quick question that's entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my apple iphone. I'm trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to resolve this issue. If you have any suggestions, please share. Cheers!

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing the structure of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two pictures. Maybe you could space it out better?
