Sternberg states that the feeling of suspense arises due to two opposite scenarios about what is going to happen further: from the discrepancy between what the telling lets us readers know about the happening (e.g., a conflict) at any moment and what still lies ahead, ambiguous because yet unresolved in the world. Its fellow universals rather involve manipulations of the past, which the tale communicates in a sequence discontinuous with the happening (2001, 17). Hence, the reader often builds possible scenarios of the outcome in his/her minds. The reader desires for the relaxation, which appears having received the missing information (cf. Sternberg 1978, 244; Fill 2003a, 264).

Mrs. Brayko Date Junior English Title Haruki Murakami’s uses of magical realism, vivid characterization, and his ability to illustrate worlds beyond our imaginations assert his idea that loneliness is an integral part of human identity; something that not only damages us but also makes us who we are. Loneliness is a theme that most, if not all, of Murakami’s books touches upon. The familiar and relatable topics of unfulfilled desires and longing for love are part of what makes his writing so engaging and relatable despite the frequent descents into surrealism. Although Murakami’s stories are all set in the real world, the mundanities of everyday life combine with surreal elements.
