  1. Very original story However, it is way too long and a lot of the things such as the little people , and the voice are not only never explained but would not have made a difference if they never existed These and so many other things amount for nothing in the plot.I guess it s all about a big metaphor but it wasn t clear to me.The writing is ok I didn t feel anything for the characters Some things sound very clunky but probably has something to do with the translation such as the continue use of [...]


  2. This is the first book I have read by Murakami.I loved it I listened to much of it via the audiobook on Audible, which was done excellently with collaborating voice actors If I was only reading the book, without slipping into the audiobook when on the road, I think this may have been difficult to get through.Strange Surreal Hilarious Weird sex scenes likely not to be found in other books Cults Questioning reality.The audiobook included an interview with the two translators that worked on 1Q84 en [...]


  3. While I have read and loved nearly everything I have been able to find by Murakami, this book was a long meandering and repetitive monument to tedium I usually have no issue with the length of a book, but the story just seemed to drag on with no real sense of purpose, and no real sense of ending, and not in the way of the reading being the journey and experience and leaving you with any kind of feeling, but rather just a colossal waste of time.


  4. Truly what first comes to mind when I consider finishing this book is awe at the mental effort it would take to compose it.The book is subtle The strangeness is introduced like slowly bringing a crab to boil It would come in waves and then suddenly disappear This book is excellent but I would only recommend it to someone who truly loves literature, mostly because without that love this book would be quite a painful effort to read The book never dragged on, but it persisted.The audiobook version [...]


  5. Before diving into a brick of a book like this, I was expecting the usual sweeping timelines, huge casts of characters, multiple plot threads, etc that one would find in mega novels To the contrary, while epic in size, Murakami has created a very concise story with two alternating main protagonists that takes place over a relatively short time frame That he is able to hold interest and patience to slog through 1100 pages of this is testament enough to the author s gifts That it shot up to the to [...]


  6. The physical book is very good I wanted to get the slightly expensive and nice looking version because it s very long and I don t want to spend that much time with an ugly book This book is definitely not ugly The cover is very good and the font is readable Not to big or small The book is also very floppy I prefer books like this as it makes it easier to turn the pages and stops the spine from creasing I knew that I would probably enjoy this book because I ve read his other stuff and loved it I [...]


  7. In complete contrast to his short stories this is, despite being touted as a trilogy, a continuous narrative and at 1200 pages, quite a meaty one All the classic Murakami fantasy, somehow whilst retaining credibility almost as if the events described could actually have happened Whilst I would normally be put off by graphic sexual descriptions, they are key to the plot and atmosphere and somehow he manages to avoid being tawdry Incredible complexity which he manages to weave together and finally [...]
