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
About the Author
In 1978, Haruki Murakami was twenty-nine and running a jazz bar in downtown Tokyo. One April day, the impulse to write a novel came to him suddenly while watching a baseball game. That first novel, Hear the Wind Sing, won a new writers’ award and was published the following year. More followed, including A Wild Sheep Chase and Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, but it was Norwegian Wood, published in 1987, that turned Murakami from a writer into a phenomenon.
