    (3920)

    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"
    "An Absolute Gem of a Listen"

    Story

    This novel was brought to life with superb narration. The voices are perfect. The story has everything one could ever want in a story. Be ready to be gripped inside a surreal world with characters who will sink deeply into your soul. This book was beautifully written, translated, and performed.

    Story

    The Bigtree alligator-wrestling dynasty is in decline, and Swamplandia!, their island home and gator-wrestling theme park, formerly number-one in the region, is swiftly being encroached upon by a fearsome and sophisticated competitor called the World of Darkness. Ava’s mother, the park’s indomitable headliner, has just died; her sister, Ossie, has fallen in love with a spooky character known as the Dredgeman, who may or may not be an actual ghost.

    Story

    The details of this swampy world brought it to life beautifully. Gripping at times and weirdly wonderful. Once I was used to the younger, quicker female voice - a perfect voice for the character really - just a little hard for me to understand at times - I fell deeply into the story.
