The huge, womb-like, peanut-shaped, furry, glowing, egg thingy that materializes by their hands seemingly out of thin air. What does the Air Chrysalis represent? And how does it tie in with Sakigake and Fuka-Eri?

And, utimately, what's inside it? But more than anything, as I looked up into the eyes of the man I adored, we spoke of love. How this is above all A Love Story, and an unbelievably hopeful one at that. Because in 1Q84 true love exists and it matters, it makes a difference! It obliterates obstacles, it takes on a life of it's own. And the connections that we make, that we forge, they last. They live and breathe. They are not ephemeral And then I just woke up, the dream dissolved as abruptly as it began.

Anyways after that I didn't really notice any changes in the world around me. James Dean looks normal to me now. But maybe I've just become accustomed to it all.

I don't know what Murakami is tapped into, I don't know where his talent, his inspiration comes from, but it never fails to move me. Definitely keeping a copy of it on my bookshelf, and I highly recommend the audiobook is one wants to experience another element to the storytelling.

I've downloadd a few of his other books that I'll need to read through next. site Edition Verified download.

1Q84: Book 3

The NYT review got it right: I suspect that there is something about falling into the author's dream and fable-like narrative -- and experiencing it echo your dreams -- that either clicks or does not click -- like seeing a 3D movie with or without the glasses. I do not mean this judgmentally -- for example, Lord of the Rings did not click for me and I sense that author created a world I just cannot open myself up to for some reason.

But this book was like the most soul-stirring elements and characters of your elusive, fleeting dreams, come to life. If you have an abstract sensibility, the thirst for a sprawling story, and get a shiver when you consider the idea that you have a primal connection to someone you may have met in a dream, it is worth trying 1Q84 for the possibility that it will leave you amazed and satisfied. I found this story fascinating. Haruki Murakami has created a dream like world that has us questioning reality, in which some of the strangest notions do not seem abstract or unreal relative to what becomes normal.

This is what I think good science fiction should do. But it also has a soul to it. I felt bad for these characters at times.

And we see clearly the dark and light sides of humanity through their eyes. I'm only subtracting one star since the last third drags on and on slower than a starving turtle. Truly what first comes to mind when I consider finishing this book is awe at the mental effort it would take to compose it. The book is subtle. The strangeness is introduced like slowly bringing a crab to boil.

It would come in waves and then suddenly disappear. This book is excellent but I would only recommend it to someone who truly loves literature, mostly because without that love this book would be quite a painful effort to read.

The book never dragged on, but it persisted. The audiobook version of this from Audible was also quite excellent, and unlike some other Audiobooks of works from this author, added to, rather than detracted from my enjoyment of the story. Very original story. These and so many other things amount for nothing in the plot. The writing is ok. Many times the writing is extremely redundant. For example, I get it that Tengo had a hard time with his dad, but the author has to constantly remind us that fact in such cliche and cringy ways which feels so forced.

Many of this things were also just things repeated over and over again with no additional information.

Bland characters, clunky writing, and massive plot holes. Hardcover Verified download. While I have read and loved nearly everything I have been able to find by Murakami, this book was a long meandering and repetitive monument to tedium. I usually have no issue with the length of a book, but the story just seemed to drag on with no real sense of purpose, and no real sense of ending, and not in the way of the reading being the journey and experience and leaving you with any kind of feeling, but rather just a colossal waste of time.

Murakami I sip him like a fine wine.. First of all I must say that one of my many ' dream bucket' scenarios would be thus.. We are sitting at a small glass topped table at an outdoor cafe eating whatever delicacy, sipping wine and trading stories as if they were currency.

Haruki would be caught within a story within a story and I would be nodding, smiling and gesturing for another bottle of wine. Okay, that's enough. I love anything he does and this certainly didn't do anything to diminish my profound respect for a great writer. If you haven't read Mr. Murakami begin with Norwegian Wood and then, then begin your journey into a surreal landscape of beauty and struggle that always plucks at the chords of our own human experience.

In IQ84 at one point I began laughing because a man and woman who are caught in an alternate reality, lost to each other and following their own labyrinthine journey back or forward to each other, reminded me of story that I'd share with Haruki at that outdoor cafe. He is simply unique and brilliant. Try him!
