The 1Q84 trilogy is the first piece of work I've read by Murakami and it is quite different from anything else out there that I know of. A masterful tale of the extraordinary, I've not read anything quite like it! There are so many threads that interweave together that after I read the Brilliant epic novel. Probably there is no other novelist like Murakami who can put up story this way Please sign in to write a review.
