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 Bolano... In its bones, this novel is a thriller"

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Eerie, suspenseful and packed full of gorgeous ordinary details and provocative extraordinary events, Murakami takes weighty themes and delivers a compulsive tale that is funny, fresh and intensely surreal. Unmissable."

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