1q84

"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 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. This eBook edition includes a Reading Group Guide.

  • "Een sympathieke huurmoordenares en de schrijver van een mysterieuze roman blijken elkaar als kind te hebben gekend; wanneer zij merken dat zij beiden in een soort alternatieve werkelijkheid terecht zijn gekomen, gaan zij naar elkaar op zoek."
  • "An ode to George Orwell's "1984" told in alternating male and female voices relates the stories of Aomame, an assassin for a secret organization who discovers that she has been transported to an alternate reality, and Tengo, a mathematics lecturer and novice writer.--Résumé de l'éditeur."
  • "D'interrogation en rebondissement, de flash-back en hésitation morale, d'épisode sexuel en scène de violence, histoire des aventures et des amours d'Aomamé et de Tengo vécues d'avril à septembre 1984. A moins qu'il ne s'agisse de l'année 1Q84 dans un Japon parallèle? Ou bien les deux à la fois?--Memento."
  • "The year is 1984. Aomame sits in a taxi on the expressway in Tokyo. Her work is not the kind which can be discussed in public but she is in a hurry to carry out an assignment and, with the traffic at a stand-still, the driver proposes a solution. She agrees, but as a result of her actions starts to feel increasingly detached from the real world. She has been on a top-secret mission, and her next job will lead her to encounter the apparently superhuman founder of a religious cult. Meanwhile, Tengo is leading a nondescript life but wishes to become a writer. He inadvertently becomes involved in a strange affair surrounding a literary prize to which a mysterious seventeen-year-old girl has submitted her remarkable first novel. It seems to be based on her own experiences and moves readers in unusual ways. Can her story really be true? Aomame and Tengo's stories influence one another, at times by accident and at times intentionally, as the two come closer and closer to intertwining. As 1Q84 accelerates towards its conclusion, both are pursued by persons and forces they do not know and cannot understand. As they begin to decipher more about the strange world into which they have slipped, so they sense their destinies converging. What they cannot know is whether they will find one another before they are themselves found. 1Q84 is a magnificent and fully-imagined work of fiction - a thriller, a love-story and a mind-bending ode to George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four . It is a world from which the reader emerges stunned and altered."
  • "Murakami i tym razem w mistrzowski sposób buduje fantastyczne postaci, równoległe światy, zaciera granice między rzeczywistością a literaturą. 1Q84 to opowiadana na przemian historia kobiety i mężczyzny, Aomame i Tengo, sensacyjna, chwilami wręcz przerażająca. Oboje w dzieciństwie dobrze się znali i wszystko wskazuje na to, że ich ścieżki znowu się skrzyżują. Ona jest instruktorką sztuk walki, a po godzinach perfekcyjną morderczynią. On - wykładowcą matematyki, a w wolnych chwilach początkującym pisarzem i redaktorem. Aomame dostaje się do równoległej rzeczywistości. Tengo także mylą się światy."
