1Q84 is a novel written by famous Japanese author named Haruki Murakami. This book has been translated from Japanese into English (and other languages) and is currently in most fiction bestseller lists in North America.
The events of 1Q84 take place in Tokyo, an alternate world of the year 1984 (I assume a tribute to George Orwell’s novel). 1Q84 has two moons. The narrative is composed of two storylines based on the two main characters of the book, Aomame and Tengo, who were schoolmates 20 years ago and have not seen each other since. Will they eventually meet again in 1Q84?
The book is very long (over 1,000 pages) and is at times slow paced. Since I love long books, I enjoyed the book. It is the first Murakami novel I have read and plan to read his other books.
