1q84 is het ijzingwekkend spannende verhaal van Tengo en Aomame. Tengo is wiskundeonderwijzer en de ghostwriter van een bestsellerauteur. Aomame is sportschoolinstructrice, maar pleegt daarnaast moorden in opdracht. Zij hebben op het eerste gezicht niets met elkaar te maken, maar gaandeweg wordt duidelijk dat hun paden elkaar heel vroeger ooit gekruist moeten hebben, en he ...more

The more I read Murakami, the more I understand that there are books that are about literature and then there are books that have nothing to do with literature as such. Books that aren't so much of story, character development or wording - although there is that, too - as they are little anti-death pills. You turn the last page, and for a little while your whole body, every single cell of it, remembers about its immortality. Let me try this another way: reading a Murakami book is like diving int ...more
Reread (2015)


Read (December 28, 2009)

I don't know how he does it, but it's good. Really, really good. I was sucked into it from the very beginning and had a hard time putting it down. I can't wait to read the next volume.

Here, you'd see the master at work. His signature surrealism is there, as well as parallel narratives like in Hardboild Wonderland and the End of the World and Kafka on the Shore.

But Murakami does something new in this book. It's told in the third person point of view.
Παρά την ευφυέστατη σύλληψη και τη συγγραφή ενός τέτοιου παράξενου θέματος, παρά την ωραία αφηγηματική ροή και την συνομιλία του με συγγραφείς, όπως ο Όργουελ και ο Τσέχωφ εγώ δεν θα μπορούσα να το βαθμολογήσω με πάνω από 3,5 αστεράκια. Υπήρχαν διάφορα θεματάκια που μου χαλούσαν συνεχώς την απόλαυση της ανάγνωσης. Ένα από αυτά ήταν οι συνεχείς και λεπτομερέστατες, ωμές περιγραφές για τις σεξουαλικές φαντασιώσεις και εμπειρίες των ηρώων. Νομίζω ότι ήταν άσχετες με το ύφος του βιβλίου και μετά από ...more

ماه بيشتر از هر كس ديگري از نزديك زمين را زير نظر داشت. مسلما شاهد تمام حوادث طبيعي و تمام فعاليت هايي كه انجام شده روي زمين بوده است. اما ماه ساكت باقي مي ماند، داستان ها را تعريف نمي كرد. تنها كاري كه مي كرد اين بود كه گذشته سنگين را با آرامش و انزوايش در آغوش گيرد. در ماه هوا و باد وجود نداشت. خلأش براي سالم حفظ كردن خاطره ها عالي بود. هيچ كس نمي توانست قلب ماه را باز كند.

Ik vraag me af, ergens diep van binnen, waar Murakami is. Eigenlijk. Stiekem. Dit is geen meesterwerk. Murakami's meesterwerken zijn al geschreven (Kafka op het Strand, Opwindvogelkronieken). Dit is een tegenvaller. Tot nu toe. Op naar Boek II.

Although not enjoy the series where each book is more like a long chapter of a work itself, "1Q84" is quite amazing.

In this first part, the analogies with "1984" by George Orwell are more subtle than that boasted, but the beauty of the book is not there. The complexity of the characters is contagious, it is easy to fall in love with them. Unlike works in which the mystery is the main theme to want to know more of each of the protagonists, here they reveal themselves without mummery or allocation

AOMAME significa Ervilha Verde, nome que a atormentou ao longo da sua vida. Tem 30 anos, 1 metro e 68 centímetros de altura e não possui uma grama de gordura a mais no seu corpo musculado. O único pormenor que destoa a sua perfeição física são as suas orelhas, que diferem na forma e no tamanho: a orelha esquerda é muito maior e um pouco deformada. Contudo, na maior parte do tempo está escondida pelo seu cabelo.Apesar da sua beleza, é desprovida de expressões faciais e, por esta razão, o

Primeiro volume devorado.
É muito difícil fazer uma critica a um livro de Murakami. Ou o podemos considerar genial ou simplesmente não ver nada de especial na sua escrita. Eu faço parte daqueles que se deleitam com as histórias e personagens que ele cria.
Supostamente passado em 1984 ou num mundo à parte (1Q84)conhecemos as duas personagens principais Aomame e Tengo e com o desenrolar do enredo vemos até que ponto as vidas de ambos se cruzam. Em que parte da história é que passámos além da realid

Τέλειο και πολύ ενδιαφέρον βιβλίο! Οι χαρακτήρες είναι ολοκληρωμένοι και η πραγματικότητα μπλέκεται άψογα με φανταστικά στοιχεία. Η πλοκή διαρκώς αλλάζει και οι εκπλήξεις διαδέχονται η μία την άλλη. Το επόμενο βιβλίο που θα διαβάσω είναι σίγουρα το δεύτερο και ανυπομονώ!

OK, I get why so many people hated this book. It's pure Murakami, yet it's not. I don't know. I can't be too disappointed with the man.

Throughout the novel, I kept having the feeling that he delayed things through repetition and apparently useless descriptions. That's something that made me feel let down at first. I had so many expectations, that I kept wondering what the hell is taking him so long to develop the story. After a while though, I reminded myself that this is just the beginning of a

OK, it IS crazy. But Murakami-crazy, which means it's crazy-good!
Couldn't put it down, finished it in about 4-5 days, which already says a lot.

Пытаться писать отзыв о книгах Мураками - бесполезная затея для меня. Настолько они атмосферны. Их скорее ощущаешь, чем понимаешь. Не могу сказать - хорошо конкретно это и это. Могу сказать - Мураками пишет в каком-то другом измерении и поэтому мне близок. Потому что видимо я живу где-то в этом же измерении.

This book has a good premise with poor execution. There are some weird yet deeply affecting scenes which kept me reading, but it really doesn't need to be three volumes long; I wonder where his editor was in all of this. The main issue that lets this book down is the dialogue. Maybe it's just how Japanese people speak and it doesn't make sense in translation, but characters frequently talk to each other in a way that seems completely unnatural and out of character. They exchange information they ...more

The age of Big brother and Liberal capitalism is visible in life of alienated people, alienated spaces, roads with no end..World in which is survival very hard because humans does not posses emotions just pure, strong animal will for power build in some strange, secret organizations. Truth about cloned society in doll of air ans mother and her child is really as something what maybe exist beyond next corner.

Double-sided stories are typical Murakami. We've already experienced this kind of Geminian adventures while reading "The end of the world & hardboiled wonderland" ... but this time it came as a Re-masterized 2010 story located in a unexisting 2-moon earth in 1984! Book # 1 happens to be an introduction to this sort of world, which at first seems to be the same old same we are used to live in, but as time passes, we find Aomame & Tengo inmersed in a sort of Orwellian1894 planet!

یک مقدار زوده که بعد از خوندن اولین جلد در مورد یک مجموعه سه جلدی اظهار نظر کرد ولی تا اینجای کار سبک نوشتاری عالی ای داشت و یجورایی بعد از "کافکا در کرانه" این دومین کتاب موراکامی بود که تونستم باهاش ارتباط برقرار کنم.
خوندنش رو توصیه می کنم به همه.
I'm sorry, but I just can't finish it. I'm 500 or so pages into it (out of 900!) and it's like pulling teeth to get myself to sit down and work on it. When reading a book feels like work, it's time to move on.

My New Year's resolution? To stop wasting time on books that I obviously do not like. No matter HOW good everyone else says it is. It's not quite New Year's Day yet, so admittedly I'm starting a little early, but really - this book is killing my love of reading.

It is incredibly repetitive.

Ο Haruki Murakami είναι ίσως ο δημοφιλέστερος Ιάπωνας λογοτέχνης των ημερών μας και τα βιβλία του γίνονται best-sellers, από την πρώτη κι όλας μέρα κυκλοφορίας τους καθώς, οι φανατικοί του αναγνώστες του, είναι αναρίθμητοι. Όμως και στη χώρα μας οι θαυμαστές του δεν είναι λίγοι και οι εκδοτικοί που διεκδικούν κάθε νέο του βιβλίο, δεν είναι ούτε ένας, ούτε δύο. Έτσι λοιπόν, έπεσαν κορμιά στη μάχη της απόκτησης του πιο πρόσφατου έργου του, της τριλογίας που ακούει στον τίτλο, "1Q84", τα δικαιώματα ...more

Estou entusiasmada a ler este novo romance de Murakami dividido em 3 livros. O primeiro volume manteve-se dentro daquele tipo de narração de Murakami que eu gosto - a mais normal, sem pessoas a arrancar a pele a outras pessoas ou gatos abertos ao meio.
A história é intrigante mas não é completamente disparatada. Quer dizer, abriram-se portas para aparvalhar no segundo volume mas vou esperar que não seja levado ao extremo.
A diferença entre este livro e o Norwegian Wood de que eu tanto tinha gosta

“O mundo, Aomame, é uma incessante luta entre a memória de quem está de um lado e a memória de quem está do outro.”

O épico contemporâneo 1Q84, escrito por um dos nomes mais importantes da literatura japonesa atual, Haruki Murakami, é uma trilogia cheia de mistérios. O cenário é o mesmo, Japão, porém divido entre dois personagens: Tengo e Aomame.

"Thế giới này phải chăng là nơi nuôi dưỡng những nỗi cô đơn?"

Mặc kệ những review này nọ của các thể loại cứ cho là HIỂU MURAKAMI nhiều lắm, cũng ra cái điều nhận xét là cuốn này tệ hại thế nào. Mình đọc thấy phê. Hơn nữa, phê bởi vì nó dài, càng dài càng sướng. Mình thích Aomame dã man. Nói chung, nó đẹp về mọi mặt.

I liked the characters and enjoyed the atmosphere. If there is such thing as a typical Murakami, this would be one. I'm looking forward to read the second part.

One thousand, one hundred and fifty-seven pages.

So glad I skimmed the last 450 pages. Or this review might be filled with more expletives.

It wasn't until I reached 700 pages, though, that I had to stop and google other reviews of this book because, I was wondering if anyone else in the world who had read this turd was feeling the same way I was at that moment.

First off, let me clarify that I only finished it because I read through too much and was too invested at that point to just drop it. If

1Q84, Livre 1 présente les récits parallèles de Aomamé et Tengo, deux personnages qui semblent ne rien avoir de commun : la première est une tueuse à gage, le second est un écrivain en mal d'inspiration. Mais plusieurs indices au long du roman nous laissent comprendre que leurs destins sont mêlés de manière obscure. Quel est le lien entre Fukaéri, jeune romancière énigmatique dont Tengo récrit le livre, et les victimes de violences masculines ou sectaires que Aomamé se charge d'envoyer "dans l'a ...more

I haven't enjoyed Murakami for some years Re-reading those I've loved before made me wonder what interested me so much. I could only manage to read partway some of his new books. Somehow the current me just doesn't fit murakami. I was very reluctant to read this as well, 3 volume books when I can't even manage his short story? No way.

This book was amazing! (Maybe the best one I've read in 2015 so far?!?)

First, I had difficulty in setting the story in its background. I'm not used in reading something that is supposed to happen in Japan, to be honest. There was a kind of vibe I coudn't catch at the beginning.

But then, everything started to get clearer, and stranger at the same time. To enjoy the book, you have to accept that the author is taking you where he wants you to go. He takes you on a ride through a dystopian, fantast
