Tras perder una semana con otro libro que acabé dejando por imposible, de casualidad vi en una tienda que había libro nuevo de Murakami. De hecho ha salido antes en castellano que en Inglés y con solo 6 meses de diferencia respecto la publicación en Japón. Y si algo puedeo decir de Murakami, es que al contrario de lo que me pasó con el otro libro que tenia entre manos y dejé, sabe atraparme enseguida, aunque no sepa definir porqué.

Esta vez el protagonista sufridor de la vida y las mujeres imposibles habitual de Murakami, se llama Tsukuru y es un ingeniero de 36 años que siempre ha sentido fascinación por el mundo ferroviario y especialmente por las estaciones de tren y a eso es a lo que se dedica de mayor, a construir, acondicionar y reformar estaciones de tren.

Pero Tsukuro tiene unas taras que arrastra desde la adolescencia y que le llevaron a mirar cara a cara a la muerte en su momento. En su Nagoya natal formaba con otros 4 amigos, cuyos nombres tenían que ver con colores, 2 chicos y 2 chicas, un grupo muy unido y que se compenetraba totalmente. Un buen día, cuando el ya había marchado a Tokyo a estudiar a la universidad, le comunican que no quieren volver a saber nada mas de el, nunca.

Esto llevo a Tsukuru a lugares oscuros y a coquetear con la muerte. Pero afortunadamente consigue salir de esos lugares oscuros y continuar con su vida de chico sin color, mas bien solitario, sin amigos y con una imagen de si mismo distorsionada por los acontecimientos. Ya en la actualidad sale con Sara, una mujer que le gusta mas de lo normal en sus relaciones y con quien se plantea estar mas seriamente, pero algo se interpone entre ellos. El pasado de Tsukuro es un peso que arrastra y Sara, tras conocer la tara relacionada con sus amigos que tiene Tsukuru, le insta a que visite a esos amigos y aclare los porqués de que lo abandonaran y así pueda dar portazo a esa parte de su pasado y tener la posibilidad de avanzar o no con ella.

Es una historia menos paranoica, sobrenatural u onírica que otras, pero que toca los temas habituales de introspección de un personaje. Esta vez el problema está en el pasado y no en la mujer actual que vuelva loco a Tsukuru y a ese pasado habrá de enfrentarse. Es una lectura muy rapida y amena y en la que la parte mas delicada es el final, que a mi me ha dejado un poco de “lectura interruptus”. Aun así, recomendable como siempre.

  1. Lo estoy leyendo en este mismo momento, de hecho he realizado una pausa en su lectura para trastear un poco por internet. No me he leído toda tu reseña pero coincido en que es una historia menos onírica, es más real que otras, pero sigue estando muy bien.
