1Q84, Book 2
1Q84, Book 2 | Haruki Murakami
9 posts | 16 read | 4 to read
CHI edition of 1Q84 (July to September) - a runaway bestseller by Haruki Murakami. 1Q84 is a near-past story inspired by Orwells futuristic 1984. It is told through the bizarre experiences of two protagonists searching for each other: a woman who descends into an alternate universe in 1984 and goes on to commit murders, and a passive college entrance exam prep instructor with a fetish, who is also an unfulfilled and never published novelist. Both exhibit deeply rooted alienation reminiscent of protagonists in Murakamis works. Book 2 In CHI. Distributed by Tsai Fong Books, Inc.

2nd volume which is completely a page-turner is the most interesting part.
Complications, disturbance, dystopian the speciality of the author all comes together to thrill the hell out of us.
By the end of the 2nd novel.
We get deeply involved with the world of 2moons I.e 1Q84

Got in an good hour on my #audiowalk after work today around in my neighbourhood, very refreshing. I am still listening to the tagged book, and it‘s a good companion on these walks indeed! I‘m using this book for my #AtY2019 challenge in addition to it being the Q1 read in #Reading1001 at GR.

The sun was finally up today on my #audiowalk, and I finished 1Q84 book 1. Luckily I had book 2 ready to start right away. I really enjoy being in Murakami‘s spectacular world, and look forward to finding out what crazy stuff book 2 will bring. The narrator is excellent!

rockpools Yay for sunshine! How‘s this on audio? 4y
hilded @RachelO Lovely to see the sun again ☀️☀️ The narrator is really great, I think I have to listen to all three volumes on audio because of him. But I am listening to the Norwegian translation read by Mai-The Duc, so I don‘t know how the English version is. 4y
Kaye Great job getting out to walk today. Your blue sky is beautiful. Glad you are enjoying your book. 4y

rockpools @hilded 😂😂 That would make a difference! My Norwegian‘s a little limited! (😬Sorry - totally hadn‘t thought!) I wasn‘t sure if Murakami would be easy to follow on audio - I might give it a try sometime. 4y
hilded @RachelO Lol 😂😂 I was a bit hesitant about doing this on audio as well, as I thought it might be confusing. But the reader has received lots of love here in Norway, especially for all the Murakami books he has read, so I figured it was worth the chance. And I am glad to say it‘s working really well, absolutely doable in audio. But maaaaany hours to listen to though 😂 4y
DarcysMom Looks like a beautiful day for a walk! 4y
hilded @DarcysMom It was indeed 😊❄️ 4y

I feel as if I know Tengo and Aomame as old friends.

I don't know why I put off reading this for so long but honestly I love it even more than volume one! I love how each character has developed and honestly it doesn't feel like I've been away! Murakami is such a good writer, this trilogy is why I love him. His writing is so trippy at times but I love it! #HarukiMurakami #bookish #bookblogger #fiction #1Q84 #dystopian

This is just a random page I took a photo of. I am now roughly 80% done with this trilogy and ugh, Murakami has this sort of writing thing where he's compelling and frustrating at the same time and I kind of broke my personal rule to not peek at the ending today. I wanted to know if all these feelings i have will be resolved in the end, okay? But no, i won't tell you how it ends. Haha. Not spoiling people is a rule I don't want to break today too.
