as my organization skills get slightly better, I invite everyone to begin discussion on Book Two, of the Wind-up Bird Chronicle, Bird as Prophet.
My first impressions are that there is a bit of a disconnect of flow between the two so far. Obviously the main story is continuing through, but I wonder why he chose to divide and write within these confines and with this method. I have yet to see how this is serving the purpose of the writing.
then again, I am not all the way through.
