IQ84 - Haruki Murakami

  • Nov 20, 2013 · 7:15 PM
  • The Freeway Coffee House

IQ84 - Laura's choice.

 

The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver’s enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 —“Q is for ‘question mark.’ A world that bears a question.” Meanwhile, an aspiring writer named Tengo takes on a suspect ghostwriting project. He becomes so wrapped up with the work and its unusual author that, soon, his previously placid life begins to come unraveled.

    I liked it too but as a former editor, I can't help but say it was at least 300 pages too long. However, I am looking forward to reading Murakami's next book. I'll just have to schedule my holidays at the same time ;)

    I joined this group only to realize that I've got another commitment every Wednesday (for a good part of the year). I was hoping to get out this Wednesday's and attend the group but that won't happen. So.... regrets. I'd signed up. I, too, am reading this book.

    I'm really disappointed that I can't make it this Wed. I am a third of the way through the book and plan to finish it. Hope you have a great evening.

    This will be my first time and I am a little shy and nervous! I am new to Hamilton and always wanted to join a book club. Thx for organizing this. Jann
