Being that I just bought Revolutionary Road, I hope we can get that on the list.

Also, I'd like to read The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and have seen some others post interest. Anyone else on board with that?

Certainly, loving my first Murakami, so would have caught this anyway.

I'd go for that too, though we have just had a Murakami which might sway some against.

Yes, but only about three people read it, right?

An interest in The Wind-up Bird Chronicle was triggered in me after I read gil's review on Murakami's books. I probably put it in my 2006 list.

I'd like to read A suitable boy. Because I really need someone to race with on that big volume.

Re-done. Thanks for everyone's patience.

Voting as before, I reckon: 2 votes each, one of which may be for your own choice if you've made one:

Fifth Business - Davies
First Love - Turgenev
The Harmony Silk Factory - Aw
The Heart of the Matter - Greene
Lilith - MacDonald
The Master - Tóib*n
Master & Commander - O'Brian
Meditations - Marcus Aurelius
Nightwood - Barnes
Revolutionary Road - Yates
Spoiler - Prantera
The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch - Dick
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle - Murakami










Have fun deciding.

Can we add a few more to the shortlist mate? I haven't suggested yet, so I will chuck forward

The Heart of the Matter - Graham Greene; and
The Master - Colm Tóib*n.

Cheers
