    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....

    Dr. says: "Slow, Strange, and (ultimately) Satisfying"
    "Voice too weak for the hard of hearing"

    Story

    Ms. Hiroto's voice is too weak. I admit my hearing problems, I wear hearing aids, but I have been unable to listen to even the first chapter and understand what is being described. I have only had a few books where this happens, and not trying to be a sexist or xenophobe, they have been read by women with accents. I probably should have listened to the preview.
