Covers the 1995 Tokyo Gas Attack, during which agents of a Japanese cult released a gas deadlier than cyanide into the subway system, as documented in interviews with its survivors, perpetrators, and victim family members. In March 1995, agents of a Japanese religious cult attacked the Tokyo subway system with sarin, a gas twenty six times as deadly as cyanide. Attempting to discover why, Murakami conducted hundreds of interviews with the people involved, from the survivors to the perpetrators to the relatives of those who died. Underground is their story in their own voices. Concerned with the fundamental issues that led to the attack as well as these personal accounts, Underground is a document of what happened in Tokyo as well as a warning of what could happen anywhere. This is an enthralling and unique work of nonfiction that is timely, vital, and as brilliantly executed as Murakami's novels. From Haruki Murakami, internationally acclaimed author of the Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Norwegian Wood, a work of literary journalism that is as fascinating as it is necessary, as provocative as it is profound. It was a clear spring day, Monday, March 20, 1995, when five members of the religious cult Aum Shinrikyo conducted chemical warfare on the Tokyo subway system using sarin, a poison gas twenty-six times as deadly as cyanide. The unthinkable had happened; a major urban transit system had become the target of a terrorist attack. Attempting to discover why, Murakami conducted hundreds of interviews with the people involved, from a subway authority employee with survivor guilt, to a fashion salesman with more venom for the media than for the perpetrators, to a young cult member who vehemently condemns the attack though he has not quit Aum. Through these and many other voices, Murakami exposes intriguing aspects of the Japanese psyche. And, as he discerns the fundamental issues leading to the attack, we achieve a clear vision of an event that could occur anytime, anywhere. Hauntingly compelling and inescapably important, Underground is a powerful work of journalistic literature from one of the world's most perceptive writers. Concerned with the fundamental issues that led to the attack as well as these personal accounts, Underground is a document of what happened in Tokyo as well as a warning of what could happen anywhere. This is an enthralling and unique work of nonfiction that is timely and vital and as wonderfully executed as Murakami's brilliant novels.… (més)

Dedebrà als fans de Murakami i de la seva escriptura freda i destil·lada. Un llibre periodístic dividit en 3 parts: el punt de vista de les víctimes, reiteratiu; l'anàlisi psicològica i social de l'atemptat per part de l'autor; i entrevistes a membres d'Aum que no varen intervenir en l'atemptat.
Per mi, la part més interessant és la tercera. Per la resta, cal ser japonès i haver viscut l'època. aquesta tercera part és més atemporal i ens parla de la necessitat de comprensió i d'encaix a la societat. ( )
  Josep_Ferres | Dec 9, 2014 |
"Citing examples from recent and ancient Japanese history, Murakami establishes a pattern of a traditionally proud culture that discourages examining or accepting shame. It is precisely this painful examination that Murakami has undertaken."
 
"Like ''Sputnik Sweetheart,'' which begins with a straightforward love-triangle plot before developing an odder geometry, the cult members describe humdrum personal histories that suddenly lurch into the bizarre."
afegit per Edward | editaNew York Times, Daniel Zalewski (Jun 10, 2001)
 
"Like Mr Murakami’s novels, “Underground” makes for an unsettling read."
afegit per Edward | editaThe Economist (May 17, 2001)

Autonomy is only the mirror image of dependency on others. (p. 200)
Yet without a proper ego, nobody can create a personal narrative, any more than you can drive a car without an engine, or cast a shadow without a real physical object. But once you've consigned your ego to someone else, where on earth do you go from there? (p. 201)
Now, as one psychoanalyst defines it: "Human memory is nothing more that a 'personal interpretation' of events." (p. 203)
...we had still not begun to deal with, let alone solve, any of the fundamental issues arising from the gas attack. Specifically, for people who are outside the main system of Japanese society (the young in particular), there remains no effective alternative or safety net. As long as this crucial gap exists in our society, like a kind of black hole, even if Aum is suppressed, other magnetic force-fields -- "Aum-like" groups -- will rise up again, and similar incidents are bound to take place. (p. 214)
Reality is created out of confusion and contradiction, and if you exclude those elements, you're no longer talking about reality. You might think that -- by following language and a logic that appears consistent -- you're able to exclude that aspect of reality, but it will always be lying in wait for you, ready to take revenge. (p. 308)
