This book is a page-turner, I wish I'd never had to press the pause
button. If it's long (almost 47 hours) it never seems to be and once
finished you'll think: "What, already?" One precision : this recording in English includes all 3 books of the 1Q84 trilogy, as well as a very
interesting interview with the translators (Japanese to English). Now I
wish I'd speak Japanese to be able to read the original and understand
all the subtleties.
In book 1 and 2, chapters alternate between Tengo's and Aomame's
stories. In book 3 there's a third one added, Ushikawa. In the
beginning, you'll probably think there are two parallel stories told,
but as always in Murakami's novels they'll meet in the end. In addition
to different points of view, you'll float between two worlds: the real
world 1984 and the imaginary/parallel world 1Q84 (a tribute to George
Orwell). It's pretty hard to fit this book into a genre category. It's
as much a love story as a detective novel. It moves slowly, especially
during the first part, with many detailed descriptions: as well everyday scenes from the life of a NHK fees collector, as creepy ones of corpses, as deeply poetic ones with the two moons for instance and a couple of highly erotic scenes. But with the amount of questions you'll want to know the answer to, the vivid descriptions are not a problem at all.
Finally I'm taking my hat off to the narrators: all three of them were
pleasant to listen to and did an outstanding job !
