Description

The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver's enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 - "Q" is for "question mark". A world that bears a question.

Meanwhile, an aspiring writer named Tengo takes on a suspect ghostwriting project. He becomes so wrapped up with the work and its unusual author that, soon, his previously placid life begins to come unraveled.

As Aomame's and Tengo's narratives converge over the course of this single year, we learn of the profound and tangled connections that bind them ever closer: a beautiful, dyslexic teenage girl with a unique vision; a mysterious religious cult that instigated a shoot-out with the metropolitan police; a reclusive, wealthy dowager who runs a shelter for abused women; a hideously ugly private investigator; a mild-mannered yet ruthlessly efficient bodyguard; and a peculiarly insistent television-fee collector.

A love story, a mystery, a fantasy, a novel of self-discovery, a dystopia to rival George Orwell's, 1Q84 is Haruki Murakami's most ambitious undertaking yet: an instant best seller in his native Japan, and a tremendous feat of imagination from one of our most revered contemporary writers.

BONUS AUDIO: Audible interviews the translators of 1Q84, Jay Rubin and Philip Gabriel.

Ce que les critiques disent

"Murakami is like a magician who explains what he's doing as he performs the trick and still makes you believe he has supernatural powers.... But while anyone can tell a story that resembles a dream, it's the rare artist, like this one, who can make us feel that we are dreaming it ourselves." (The New York Times Book Review)

    "One of the best Murakami novels!"

    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 !
