Kan vi verkligen säga att världen existerar så som vi uppfattar den? Hur är världen egentligen skapad? Hur samverkar det som nu existerar med det förflutna? Och hur påverkar nuet framtiden? Haruki Murakamis största litterära satsning någonsin utmanar vår uppfattning om sanning och tid - och vad som egentligen kan rymmas i en berättelse.

Aomame åker på motorvägen i en taxi.
Paperback, 400 pages
Published April 13th 2012 by Norstedts (first published May 2009)

Το δεύτερο βιβλίο της σειράς μου άρεσε πολύ- πολύ περισσότερο από το πρώτο. Η πλοκή μου φάνηκε πιο δεμένη, τα γεγονότα άρχισαν να βγάζουν νόημα, οπότε το ίδιο και η ιστορία, και μειώθηκαν πάρα πολύ τα flashback των ηρώων στην παιδική τους ηλικία –κάτι που βαριόμουν εντελώς να διαβάζω-. Ευτυχώς για εμένα μειώθηκαν και οι αναφορές στην σεξουαλική τους ζωή και στις φαντασιώσεις τους. Τελικά το πρώτο βιβλίο είναι εισαγωγικό, κάτι σαν αναγνωριστικό του κόσμου και των χαρακτήρων, δεν είναι δυνατό να κ ...more

«Les choses qui restent enfermées dans notre cœur n'existent pas en ce monde. Mais c'est dans notre cœur, ce monde à part, qu'elles se construisent pour y vivre.»

After reading "1Q84 Avril – Juin" in February, I decided, this month, to revisit the cryptic year 1Q84 and discover what lay in store for Aomamé and Tengo from July through to September.

Previously in 1Q84: April - June

Aomamé is now about to embark upon the mission of her life, which will have far-reaching consequences on her future exis

So, I decided to split my reviews up into the 3 separate books, after I read the first two, because the star system has enough trouble supporting my mixed feelings as IS. I'll duplicate the reviews, though.

Book 1:

The first book is fantastic. It's told in alternating chapters and both voices are strong and the characters distinct. I absolutely adore how fierce, dedicated and in-control Aomame is. I like the crisis of conscience that Tengo struggles with, and his arc in book 1. I really just like

I liked Book 1 slightly better. There are more intriguing "people" in it. Book 2 gives more of the "murakami world," but also makes you feel nervous as the number of pages left decreases. It has a strong aftereffect, but not as strong as Kafka or Norwegian.

It's summer in Tokyo and the city dozes in a moist heat. Yet if Aomame warm, it's not because of the high temperatures, but because she has a mission, the last mission entrusted by the old lady loving justice finance. That his followers call the leader, guru Precursors, which draws its strength from the rape of little pre-pubescent girls should die. Everything was organized for that Aomame clears the surface of the earth. Then itself disappear: new name, new face, new city, new life. But the lea ...more

Nekenčiu, nekenčiu, oi kaip aš nekenčiu trilogijas skaityti ne iš karto – skaitei skaitei, o reikia imtis naujos knygos nesužinojus nei kaip viskas baigės, nei ką vis dėl to iki galo jauti tos knygos atžvilgiu. Bet taip jau gavosi, kad 1Q84 skaitau fragmentiškai ir ne kažin ką galiu naujo pasipasakoti.

Aišku, šita trilogija pamažu ir stabiliai keičiasi, šoko tas pasikeitimas nekelia, nes visą laiką jautei, kad eini ta kryptimi, bet visgi pasikeitimas nuo galimos fantastikos iki labai aiškių mist

صفحه ۷۳: تنگو فکر کرد ممکن است اگر واقعا او را ببینم ناامید شوم. شاید او تبدیل به کارمندی با نگاه خسته، و خسته کننده شده باشد. شاید تبدیل به مادری بی انگیزه که بر سر فرزندانش فریاد می کشد شده باشد. شاید آن دو دیگر هیچ چیز مشترکی برای صحبت کردن نداشته باشند. بله این احتمالی کاملاً امکان پذیر بود. بعد تنگو چیز گران بهایی که تمام این سال ها آن را گرامی داشته بود را از دست می داد. برای همیشه از دست می رفت.

صفحه ۱۰۸: نگامی که از یک سن خاص گذشتید زندگی چیزی بیشتر از فرایند از دست دادن مداوم نخواهد شد.

2.5 "little people" stars.

Book One was 4 stars but Book Two is seriously crashing for me. The main story is still super fascinating but I have 2 HUGE issues with this book and it is growing in intensity.

1. The repetitiveness and "spoon-feeding" that Mr. Murakami does is alternately infuriating and mind-numbing. This book needs to be edited down by two-thirds. (I am not exaggerating)

2. There is something sordid and gratuitous in the description of abuse of children by grown men. Yeah yeah I get t

Vẫn được say với những bước chân của Tengo và Aomame như chưa bao giờ được tỉnh. Trời ơi chuyện đúng là chẳng có gì nhưng tại sao lại có thể viết hấp dẫn như vậy. Ở đây Murakami cũng có gửi gắm một "tuyên ngôn" của ông về việc đọc các tác phẩm của mình. Đại ý nó như sau.

"Nếu như không thể hiểu một việc mà không cần giải thích, thì có giải thích cũng không hiểu được."

Xoắn vặn nhỉ, nhưng thật là đã đời. Tự nhiên muốn sống một cuộc sống kiểu như Tengo. Không ai biết, không ai hay, chẳng ai quan tâm

مثل تموم کتاب های بلند موراکامی، اوایل ریتم کند و جذابیت کم ولی رفته رفته داستان فراز و نشیب پیدا می کنه و اوج میگیره... بطوریکه که نمیشه از پاش بلند شد.

Contrairement au tome 1 qui m'avait laissé une impression mitigée, je l'ai beaucoup aimé! Je suis tout de suite rentrée dans l'histoire, le récit est beaucoup plus vif et captivant et j'ai autant apprécié les chapitres avec Tengo que ceux avec Aomamé. J'ai eu un petit coup de mou arrivée à la moitié parce que le fantastique reprenait le dessus mais après ç'a été, j'ai bien enchaîné les chapitres. On en apprend un peu plus sur les Little People et les deux lunes dans ce tome-ci mais il reste enco ...more

I liked the first one very much. This one though was....horrible. Well, it was ok up to the point where Aomame encounters the leader. In this scene the author really blew it though. The leader pretty much explained everything that was going on and what was explained wasn't satisfying. The plot became a convoluted and uninsteresting animé style mess. The whole plotline about receivers and receptors was uninspired and frankly quite stupid. After that point the mystery was all gone and despite of w ...more

Book Trigger Warning: Rape and child abuse.

1Q84 is told in alternating chapters exhibiting protagonists Aomame and Tengo respectively which are slightly reminiscent in structure of Kafka On The Shore.

1Q84 #2
Book 2 has the same qualities of Book 1, only worse in execution and more tedious to read as the pages wane through, this especially was observed in Tengo's chapters. There were still unnecessary parts like objectification of women for the sake of objectifying them, repetitive mention of brea

Όταν διάβασα το πρώτο βιβλίο του Haruki Murakami βρέθηκα αντιμέτωπη με μια μεγάλη έκπληξη και ένα εξίσου μεγάλο δίλημμα. Ήταν εξαιρετικά δύσκολο να μιλήσω για το βιβλίο αυτό καθώς και για το θέμα το οποίο πραγματεύεται. Ένα θέμα που δεν είναι καθόλου απλό και ξεκάθαρο ωστόσο, εξαιρετικά γοητευτικό και μυστηριώδες. Και αν και δεν μπορώ να δηλώσω fan του μεγαλύτερου εν ζωή Ιάπωνα λογοτέχνη, το "1Q84" με το πρώτο βιβλίο της τριλογίας, με έκανε να διψάσω και να θέλω κάτι περισσότερο. Ήταν αδύνατον ό ...more

A partir do momento em que ouve a Sinfonietta de Janácek e desce as escadas de emergência para fugir ao engarrafamento na autoestrada metropolitana, de modo a chegar a tempo ao trabalho, Aomame, é puxada para um mundo que tem duas luas, um mundo repleto de enigmas. A questão que a atormenta é: Qual será o papel que é suposto ela desempenhar no novo meio que

I read book 1 and 2, and 628 pages went really fast - because the story sucks you in.
Fantastic thriller with magic and parallel world-dystopia.
I loved being again, in this particular and darkly strange Murakami's universe. I still feel it.
I'm still in a world with two moons, and i feel it s not going to wash out so quickly.
There are strange Little people in the novel, a mysterious commune in the hills, strange cult, widow in her butterfly garden, shelter for abused woman (and girls!). Again, s

Mất tới gần 1 tháng cho 1Q84. Khách quan thì có vẻ hơi lâu. Nhưng chủ quan thì mình nghĩ mình không thể đọc nhanh hơn được nữa. Giống như Tengo nghĩ bầu ngực hơi nhỏ của Aomame vậy là vừa đủ, và khoảnh khắc họ nằm trong vòng tay nhau ở mãi tận những chương cuối là vừa đúng lúc vậy.
Sao lại thế nhỉ? Tính trên số sách đã đọc, mỗi lần đọc Haruki Murakami mình lại có cảm giác như vừa bị vứt tõm vào giữa lòng một đại dương thâm u huyền ảo. Mình không biết bơi, cứ bị treo nguyên một chỗ làm những động

I've never read a book where literally every single detail matters, every word written is imperative to understanding and making sense of the story. You miss a paragraph, even a sentence, and you're in the dark. EVEN A FRICKIN' BIRD THAT YOU ONLY READ ABOUT IN 2 SENTENCES IN THE WHOLE VOLUME 2 IS A DETAIL YOU DON'T WANNA MISS.

It's a bit of a rule with trilogies that the middle book is supposed to be the worst. Murakami goes against that trend here as the second installment of 1Q84 is the best part of the series.

After reading the first book, my expectations were quite high and I was eager the find out how the action will develop. The story got to a dark but interesting place where everything and nothing is predictable. I loved it!

This second books features some strange but original ideas.
There are a few interesting reflections about human condition as well.

However the pace felt different as compared to the first book.
There are less "blank spaces" in the narration which means less space to let my imagination wander between two chapters.

Unfortunately this second volume did not helped the cause of converting me to a fan of Haruki Murkami's works nor the genre itself. I must confess I am slightly disappointing as I saw high praises for this author and this book. It is not necessarily bad, but it seems to be written just because the author likes to do this job. Almost like those annoying people everyone avoids that just love the sound of their voice. If you want to learn more, read on as I dissect this novel.

The premise is the wee
O segundo volume de 1Q84 de Murakami mantém a estrutura de abordar as duas personagens principais em capítulos alternados. A história passa a ter uma cadência ligeiramente mais célere que apenas se lentifica no último capítulo. Neste volume sente-se que finalmente a ação se inicia.

Neste volume os elementos fantásticos são o foco principal da história e, findo o segundo volume, não consigo ainda compreender de maneira lógica toda a fantasia que se encontra na base desta história. É passado muito

“How many times have you said, 'This is it. I've finally found my one true love'? And how many times has the reality turned out differently? Paperback romances and fairy tales promote an ideal of a first and only love, but few of us can claim to have had such uncomplicated good fortune. For most people, the process of finding the perfect partner is one trial and error: breakups, makeups, missed opportunities and misunderstandings. Human love is a fragile creation, and sometimes the smallest thing - the wrong choice of words or a single clumsy gesture - can make love shatter, stall or fade away.” 33 likes
“Someone once said that nothing costs more and yields less benefit than revenge,” Aomame said.

“Winston Churchill. As I recall it, though, he was making excuses for the British Empire’s budget deficits. It has no moral significance.”
