I'm not entirely sure how I feel about this book. The story itself is captivating and woven with all different kinds of intricate threads, but I felt that often times the author repeated what he had to say and it made it really distracting and hard to get through. I started off reading this novel, but quickly realized it was too hard to follow in print so I listened to the complete story on 38 audio discs! It was well worth the time it took though, and I loved learning about the world with two moons; 1Q84.

I felt that at the end, I was happy with how things ended, but I did not get a real sense of closure. Overall, this is an interesting read but I caution others to make sure you have a lot of time on your hands when you start this one.
