Haruki Murakami always stops the narration to describe new characters as they appear first time. These descriptions are apparently physical and make the Murakami’s style very visual, filmic. I think that thanks to these physical descriptions (which implied the choice of suitable adjectives) and thanks to the description of the way they dress, the author gets a excellent way to describing their personality. Prejudices are not good but everybody have them. What I have found is that prejudices can be a effective literary tool for sketching characters.
