I’ve been browsing lots of japanese fiction and, after looking at Banana Yoshimoto and Otsuichi and others, I grabbed a Japanese book by Haruki Murakami. His newest book actually whose title has been translated as ‘Killing Commendatore’ but the book itself is not translated.
What struck me is the straightforward grammar! I found Murakami easier to read than other authors. Is this the case or am I getting this wrong? By the way, here is the first sentence of his new novel:
Even as a lvl15 I can get that someone woke up and found a faceless man in front of them. The next couple pages don’t have grammar that is more difficult than that.
