"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)
A mesmerising, epic, utterly involving masterpiece from Haruki MurakamiAlle Produktbeschreibungen

The narrative famously begins with an attractive female protagonist, Aomame, on the way to a rendez-vous with a man, but her taxi is hopelessly trapped in a traffic jam. Nervous about being late she leaves the cab, walks down the freeway, takes off her high-heels, hitches up her miniskirt, steps over a guardrail and uses an emergency roadside stairway to reach a subway station where she becomes aware that she has left the Tokyo of 1984 and any experienced reader of Murakami's novels knows that from here on, she has cooked her goose. Soon enough she recognizes that she is about to enter a different world. She calls the new world 1Q84, "a world that bears a question." (Apparently "Q" is a homophone of the Japanese word for "nine.") Aomame is in a hurry because she is hired to kill the man she is about to meet, her preferred weapon being a kind of homemade stiletto.Lesen Sie weiter... ›
Kafka was wonderful surreal and had this vivid game with illusion and reality but it lacked in believable feelings and relationships where South of the border was fulfilled with this profound and opaque love but didn't had this Murakami-Crescendo.
But this one now, is his awaited masterpiece! Very faintly in the beginning Murakami built a reality a surreal and sensitive castle fulfilled with love and loneliness.
The Chatterers are lunatic Puppets played by Pandoras worst curse. Driven by the hope who will you make carry on deep into every nightmare just with an unspoken promise.
If you like Murakami you will love this one! Normally I don't like it to give 5 stars but this one is it worth.
I just falling in love.
First off, if you are already a Murakami fan then you can go ahead and order immediately. This work represents the pinnacle of the style he has developed in his previous work and there is nothing that will disappoint established fans. In my opinion, Murakami's blend of fantasy and realism becomes something truly meaningful in 1Q84 as opposed to remaining a purely aesthetic element as in some of his other novels.
For those readers who are new to Murakami, 1Q84 is a suitable introduction. Although Norwegian Wood or South of the Border, West of the Sun might be even more appropriate, this is just a matter of taste. Although this novel is somewhat heavier on the elements of fantasy than his previous work, the narrative is well refined and should not seem at all overwhelming to the novice reader.
I will refrain from going any deeper into details about the book, however there are two things i do wish to mention. First, the way Murakami employs time in this book demonstrates his skill as a writer. Even though his narrative follows an outwardly simple linear chronology, he succeeds at intertwining seemingly disparate threads of the story in a very powerful way. Second, the character development in 1Q84 is superb. Particularly Murakami's description and portrayal of this one horrendously ugly private investigator is almost surreal in its clarity.
In any case, I believe this novel is well worth the money (and the wait) and should certainly grab the attention of fans and novices alike.
I really enjoyed reading 1Q84 from page 1 to 1328. It is not only the story of the true and pure love of Aomame and Tengo, but also an exciting crime story. What surprises me is the fact that Murakami is able to grip a reader right from the start and hold him tight for more than 1000 pages, especially because the narrative structure is very simple. In the books 1 and 2 the chapters of Aomame and Tengo alternate. Book 3 adds another character (Ushikawa).
If you want an abstract of the story please read the comment of "express" of May 18, 2014. I think it is not necessary to sum up the story again and again. I would like to tell you that this book is worth reading because it handles the big human topics (love, religion, believe, solitude and hope) with great care and finds metaphores you will never forget (i.e. two moons).
