Product description

The year is 1Q84. This is the real world, there is no doubt about that. But in this world, there are two moons in the sky. In this world, the fates of two people, Tengo and Aomame, are closely intertwined. They are each, in their own way, doing something very dangerous. And in this world, there seems no way to save them both. Something extraordinary is starting.

Customer reviews

By Rita Teutschlaender 30 May 2013 5

This book is really intriguing. I keep thinking I know what's about to happen, and then the story takes a completely different direction. Not the type of book I'm usually drawn to, but j just can't put it down. The translation is a bit wonky at times, but the story makes up for that. Really good read!

Review quote

"Murakami's magnum opus" Japan Times "1Q84 has a range and sophistication that surpasses anything else in his oeuvre. It is his most achieved novel; an epic in which form and content are neatly aligned... So like Murakami himself, I'll borrow from Orwell: 1Q84 is quite simply doubleplusgood" Independent on Sunday "1Q84 reads like a cross between Stieg Larsson and Roberto Bolano... In its bones, this novel is a thriller" Daily Telegraph "Eerie, suspenseful and packed full of gorgeous ordinary details and provocative extraordinary events, Murakami takes weighty themes and delivers a compulsive tale that is funny, fresh and intensely surreal. Unmissable." Marie Claire "It is a work of maddening brilliance and gripping originality, deceptively casual in style, but vibrating with wit, intellect and ambition" The Times
