    TheI read Murakami, theI understand that there are books that are about literature and then there are books that have nothing to do with literature as such Books that aren t so much of story, character development or wording although there is that, too as they are little anti death pills You turn the last page, and for a little while your whole body, every single cell of it, remembers about its immortality Let me try this another way reading a Murakami book is like diving int TheI read Murakami, theI understand that there are books that are about literature and then there are books that have nothing to do with literature as such Books that aren t so much of story, character development or wording although there is that, too as they are little anti death pills You turn the last page, and for a little while your whole body, every single cell of it, remembers about its immortality Let me try this another way reading a Murakami book is like diving into the ocean only to discover that you have always been a fish Things suddenly start making sense Not for long Not in a way that you can express to others Still, it might be your first step towards something bigger.On a structural note, is it just me or does this book thematically rhyme with Stieg Larson s trilogy Same attention to sexual violence, men who hate women, women who hate men thread with strong female characters there is even something of a likeness between two heroines, Lisbet and Fukaeri But then again, the feeling this book produces is very different Did the word murakami esque make it yet into English language The bottom line is, if you like other books by Murakami, you will probably like this one as well If you don t well, give it a try, who knows what can happen under two moons Things are not what they seem Not any

    Short, very belated review This was my first Murakami read and it wasthan decent The 1Q84 trilogy is clearly meant to be read back to back as one long book, since Part One is only an introduction to the setting and over, the characters I m unwisely putting a month s break between each part, but it can t be helped because of my crazy reading schedule.1Q84, so far, is very character focused Readers get to know every thought flitting through the two protagonists heads as they go abou Short, very belated review This was my first Murakami read and it wasthan decent The 1Q84 trilogy is clearly meant to be read back to back as one long book, since Part One is only an introduction to the setting and over, the characters I m unwisely putting a month s break between each part, but it can t be helped because of my crazy reading schedule.1Q84, so far, is very character focused Readers get to know every thought flitting through the two protagonists heads as they go about their lives Perhaps realistically, their thoughts wander to sex a lot, butunrealistically, both describe sex in an uncomfortably matter of fact way That was weird.Plot wise Book 1 was slow but not boring Unique and thoughtful enough to make me look forward to Book 2

    Reread 2015 Awesome Read December 28, 2009 I don t know how he does it, but it s good Really, really good I was sucked into it from the very beginning and had a hard time putting it down I can t wait to read the next volume.Here, you d see the master at work His signature surrealism is there, as well as parallel narratives like in Hardboild Wonderland and the End of the World and Kafka on the Shore.But Murakami does something new in this book It s told in the third person point of view Reread 2015 Awesome Read December 28, 2009 I don t know how he does it, but it s good Really, really good I was sucked into it from the very beginning and had a hard time putting it down I can t wait to read the next volume.Here, you d see the master at work His signature surrealism is there, as well as parallel narratives like in Hardboild Wonderland and the End of the World and Kafka on the Shore.But Murakami does something new in this book It s told in the third person point of view And get this one of the main characters is female.This is also the first time I read Murakami in Japanese I must say reading him in the original Japanese is quite different from doing it in English I really like it.I have to read till the end to say anything definitive about the novel in its entirety, but so far, it s awesome and I m enjoying the ride

    The beginning of a very interesting story that balancea between realism and many strange things At first, however, I can not say that I was particularly excited about what I was reading and I was worried that it was something like the tortured bird that left me so confused that I can not say I enjoyed it very much Here, however, there are many important differences that made me after this inicial puzzlement to really love this book The basic thing is that it is a story that is firmly on t The beginning of a very interesting story that balancea between realism and many strange things At first, however, I can not say that I was particularly excited about what I was reading and I was worried that it was something like the tortured bird that left me so confused that I can not say I enjoyed it very much Here, however, there are many important differences that made me after this inicial puzzlement to really love this book The basic thing is that it is a story that is firmly on the ground and concerns many aspects of Japanese society and obviously every society, as isolation, need for contact, searching for meaning, religious fanaticism, violence andfrom the book s subjects are concerning people in every corner of the planet.Essentially there are two interrelated stories involving two persons, a man and a woman, two illegal situations, maybe two different worlds But as you go through on the pages of the book, the two stories seem to haveandcommon elements and eventually lead to the same mystery with the author suggesting that there are too many things to come that we can not imagine That s what got my attention, the writer begins the story in a way that does not show anything significant, but then feeds us with the right amount of data, slowly building up a mystery that seems to have too much many extensions, making it hard to stop reading.Apart from this, however, in this first part there is also the emotional side, which is expressed mainly by the usual subject of the writer, the psychologically injured women Especially here the author deals with many aspects of women s abuse, whether it concerns violent husbands, psychological and physical domestic violence, or violence in closed communities that may have the most horrible dimensions This is how he brings forth the question of how women can defend themselves against these phenomena, if the use of force is even warranted Of course I can imagine that I can go this a little bit further by thinking about the issue of imposition of the strongest against the weak, which has often resulted in the reversal of roles.These are some of the first thoughts that come to my mind after the end of this exciting and intriguing first part before I start the second one that is expected to be eveninteresting, ,, ,, , , , ,, , ,, ,, , , , , ,, , , ,, , ,, ,

    This book has a good premise with poor execution There are some weird yet deeply affecting scenes which kept me reading, but it really doesn t need to be three volumes long I wonder where his editor was in all of this The main issue that lets this book down is the dialogue Maybe it s just how Japanese people speak and it doesn t make sense in translation, but characters frequently talk to each other in a way that seems completely unnatural and out of character They exchange information they This book has a good premise with poor execution There are some weird yet deeply affecting scenes which kept me reading, but it really doesn t need to be three volumes long I wonder where his editor was in all of this The main issue that lets this book down is the dialogue Maybe it s just how Japanese people speak and it doesn t make sense in translation, but characters frequently talk to each other in a way that seems completely unnatural and out of character They exchange information they obviously already know, and on many occasions a character will make a simple statement, and the other will say You mean like , then launch into an extremely elaborate paraphrasing that only the author could be able to make, to which the other will respond exactly In fact this book could be renamed Exactly.For example, it might go something like this Character A The rain makes me sad Character B You mean the rain reminds you of your childhood when you weren t allowed to go out and play because your mother was scared you d catch pneumonia like your older deceased sibling which is why she was an alcoholic and would cry and her tears would look like rain Character A Exactly

    4 two moon stars Reallyof a 3.5 star writing style but the story was just so fascinating that I gave this first book a bonus half star.I will do a review after I finish all three books of 1q84.I do need to take a short break before I start book 2.

    4.5 starsLoving it so far although to be honest I m having trouble identifying why I love it that much I notice that I want to keep reading, wanting to know where it is all headed, how certain parts are linked or not It is not that there s a lot of action, I guess it s just the mysterious feel of it all At the same time I m wondering how far Murakami will go with the fantasy elements hopefully he will not overdo it view spoiler hoping that The Little People are a reference to something s 4.5 starsLoving it so far although to be honest I m having trouble identifying why I love it that much I notice that I want to keep reading, wanting to know where it is all headed, how certain parts are linked or not It is not that there s a lot of action, I guess it s just the mysterious feel of it all At the same time I m wondering how far Murakami will go with the fantasy elements hopefully he will not overdo it view spoiler hoping that The Little People are a reference to something someone real and that the part where they walk out the girl s mouth was just a dream or something hide spoiler In any case, I can t wait to start book 2, so that is a positive sign I really hope the ending will live up to my high expectations

    4.5 5stars I have decided to split up my reviews for this book I m reading the large, one volume copy but my review is legit going to be a million pages long, plus I want to be able to talk about each book as I finish it and I feel like it s fair counting this as 3 books to my good reads goal lol This first book was WONDERFUL I deducted a.5 point simply because it was a LITTLE draggy and not too much happened but the world building, character development and plot set up was SUPERB In th 4.5 5stars I have decided to split up my reviews for this book I m reading the large, one volume copy but my review is legit going to be a million pages long, plus I want to be able to talk about each book as I finish it and I feel like it s fair counting this as 3 books to my good reads goal lol This first book was WONDERFUL I deducted a.5 point simply because it was a LITTLE draggy and not too much happened but the world building, character development and plot set up was SUPERB In this volume we are introduced to our two main characters main story lines First there is the woman Aomame who is a professional assassin who is able to kill people by driving a needle into a certain place on their neck a place that, for whatever reason, she is able to detect on people while most others don t even know it exists Then there is Tengo a struggling author who gets roped into a crazy scheme of rewriting a young girl s story to be turned into a big shot novel At the beginning of this story, Aomame is stuck in traffic while on her way to an important meeting, when her taxi driver tells her of a secret passage down a phone booth that will take her to a street where she can catch a bus or subway The taxi driver leaves her with a message After you DO something like that, the everyday LOOK of things might seem to change a little Things may look DIFFERENT to you than they did before But don t let appearances fool you There s always only one reality and thus, Aomame is thrust into a world with two moons, sequences of events she never remembers happening, the existence of little people and dozens of other characters who all affect her life Now, I can t tell you which story I liked better I m quite wishy washy on Aomame s chapters sometimes I FUCKING LOVED THEM and sometimes I really REALLY disliked her Aomame is an extremely strong, badass lady but also doesn t consider herself a feminist and also kind of bad mouths feminists and thinks the only way girls can fight against men is by kicking them in the balls But then all the sex positive stuff is great and just her overarching plot line is REALLY interesting, but I m still not 100% sure about her as a character I also RAELLY love Fuka Eri Tengo s storyline isn t as interesting, except for the parts about Fuka Eri and her past and all the crazy, surreal, magical realism stuff that has happened to her I m also just SO CURIOUS as to how the timelines are going to connect because atm we KINDA know the connection between Tengo and Aomame and a few little events, but so far I m still not totally sure how it s going to come together.overall, really loved the beginning of this story

    So when I was in the prison I was lucky and smuggled the first part which was translated into arabic, and then after couples of weeks They moved me to another room where I found the complete book in English and I finished it.True it could be Murakami s masterpiece, but I still prefer Kafka on the shore
