Reviews

  • Murakami's magnum opus

    Japan Times
  • 1Q84 has a range and sophistication that surpasses anything else in his oeuvre. It is his most achieved novel; an epic in which form and content are neatly aligned... So like Murakami himself, I'll borrow from Orwell: 1Q84 is quite simply doubleplusgood

    Independent on Sunday
  • 1Q84 reads like a cross between Stieg Larsson and Roberto Bolaño... In its bones, this novel is a thriller

    Daily Telegraph
  • It is a work of maddening brilliance and gripping originality, deceptively casual in style, but vibrating with wit, intellect and ambition

    Richard Lloyd Parry, The Times
  • Which other author can remind you simultaneously of Fyodor Dostoyevsky and JK Rowling, not merely within the same chapter but on the same page? Viewed through the "post-modern" lens, his exemplary blend of a light touch and weighty themes, of high literature and popular entertainment, ticks every box. Posh and pop, sublimity and superficiality, history and fantasy, trash and transcendence: they switch positions and then fuse

    Boyd Tonkin, Independent
