1Q84: 3 Volume Boxed Set (Vintage International) by Haruki Murakami
1Q84: 3 Volume Boxed Set (Vintage International)

Paul Wilbur, January 1, 2013

there's something calming in the simple way that mr murakaml writes that somehow refreshes me. yet the subtle surreality of the premise and of the main characters can sometimes make you feel almost seasick, like the world is wobbling, an earthquake deep below your feet. its both pleasant and sometimes just a little bit unpleasant, like going back to the office after having just a few too many drinks at lunch.
