Tsukuru Tazaki Without Color and His Pilgrimage Year that Tasteless | Tsukuru Tazaki Tanpa Warna dan Tahun Ziarahnya yang Hambar |

Besides writers from Latin American writers look like Gabriel Garcia Marquez, I like literary works from Japan, especially Haruki Murakami. All Haruki works that have been translated into Indonesian, I enjoy. Of all his works, 1Q84 was very impressive and left a deep impression. Until now I still like to read some pieces from the 1Q84 trilogy.

After 1Q84, Murakami's latest book I read is Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage. This novel has been published in the Popular Gramedia Library in April 2018. The original title, Shikisai o Tazaki to, Kare no Junrei no Toshi and has been translated in several languages in the world.

At this week, Colorless Tsukuru Tazaki and His Years of Pilgrimage was the literary book I read in my spare time and finished it on weekends. From the beginning, I did not find anything extraordinary in this book. In fact, I'm sorry, without reducing my admiration and respect for Haruki Murakami who was advocated for the Nobel Prize in Literature, his book this time was bland and boring — although I still read it to the end because there was always the pleasure of reading Murakami's work. I came to see the translator, who knows this work is good but the translation is chaotic. Apparently, the translator is Ribeka Ota, the same as the 1Q84 book whose story is very powerful.

According to the title, this realist novel tells of Tsukuru Tazaki's friendship with his four friends in high school. From the person's charm, only Tsukuru Tazaki does not imply color. The other four friends — two guys and two girls — had names related to colors: Aka (red), Ao (blue), Shiro (white), and Kuro (black). The color names became a call for them, except Tsukuru who was called Tsukuru.

One day, four of Tsukuru's friends said they would no longer be in touch and talk to him without any explanation, with no chance for Tsukuru to defend himself. Tsukuru felt removed, hurt, and for 16 years he kept asking why he was suddenly removed. This section is an interesting starting point for continuing the next story that was answered later when Tsukuru was familiar with Sara and the woman he considered to be his girlfriend asked Tsukuru to trace the cause of his four colleagues to dump him.

Start the journey to the past and Tsukuru finds a number of surprises. First, it was answered that the question that made Tsukuru was in the deathbed after being dumped by his close friend. Apparently, Tsukuru was accused of raping Shiro in Tsukuru's apartment in Tokyo (the five young men came from Nagoya). The accusation shocked Tsukuru because he didn't do it and didn't know why Shiro accused him of that. The second surprise, Tsukuru could not directly ask Shiro because the woman had died miserably. He was found suffocated in his apartment room.

Until the story is over, Shiro's death remains a mystery that makes the reader have to figure out the culprit. Likewise, regarding the reason, Shiro fabricated a hoax that made Tsukuru ostracized, missed until the end. Perhaps Murakami really wants to give the reader the opportunity to interpret the parts that are not clearly answered. The same thing when Murakami did not tell of Sara's relationship with the middle-aged man Tsukuru saw when he bought souvenirs for Shiro's son before he left for Finland.

Another surprise, Kuro was married to a man from Finland and now lives in Helsinki. Tsukuru went to Helsinki without making an agreement first for fear that Kuro would refuse. With the help of Sara who worked in the travel department, Tsukuru managed to meet Kuro who now has two children. The next surprise, Kuro had long since fallen in love with Tsukuru but did not dare say it.

As with the previous Murakami books, many plots were not easily guessed in Tsukuru's life journey, although in some parts the conflict was too small and made up for me. However, I tried to understand that it could happen with the thoughts, culture, and situation of Japanese society, not for me who still struggled with elementary problems such as economic shortages. Then, I consider Tsukuru's hesitant, unconfident, closed, and complicated character (although he claims to be a simple 36 man), in contrast to my character in many ways.

I could not accept, for example, when my best friend was dumped without explanation and Tsukuru kept ill for 16 years. For me, when left behind by a friend, what sin must be clear and we must fight for the opportunity to defend ourselves, it's up to them to accept or not. Tsukuru's doubtful nature is also clearly illustrated in the matter of love. Instead of saying it directly, he prefers to harbor it so that he experiences many failures in love and in social relationships with family and others. But, that's how humans are with a variety of unique characters so that life feels 0_R2kUe9xjTkPAXSbq.jpgmurakamih.jpg

Tsukuru Tazaki Tanpa Warna dan Tahun Ziarahnya yang Minim Gereget
Selain penulis dari Amerika Latin seperti Gabriel Garcia Marquez, saya menyukai karya-karya sastra dari Jepang, terutama Haruki Murakami. Semua karya Haruki yang sudah diterjemahkan dalam bahasa Indonesia, saya nikmati. Dari semua karyanya, 1Q84 yang sangat mengesankan dan meninggalkan kesan mendalam. Sampai sekarang saya masih suka membaca beberapa potongan dari trilogi 1Q84 tersebut.

Setelah 1Q84, buku terbaru Murakami yang say abaca adalah Tsukuru Tazaki Tanpa Warna dan Tahun Ziarahnya. Novel ini diterbitkan Kepustakaan Populer Gramedia pada April 2018. Judul aslinya, Shikisai o Motanai Tazaki to, Kare no Junrei no Toshi dan sudah diterjemahkan dalam beberapa bahasa di dunia.
