"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 Bolaño... In its bones, this novel is a thriller" (Daily Telegraph)
Shortlisted for the 2013 IMPAC Dublin Literary Award.
