    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....

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrators of this book made an already slow story even slower. I couldn't make it through to the end. :(

  • Dead Reckoning: Sookie Stackhouse Southern Vampire Mystery #11

    • UNABRIDGED (10 hrs and 47 mins)
    • By Charlaine Harris
    • Narrated By Johanna Parker

    Story

    With her knack for being in trouble's way, Sookie witnesses the firebombing of Merlotte's, the bar where she works. Since Sam Merlotte is now known to be two-natured, suspicion falls immediately on the anti-shifters in the area. Sookie suspects otherwise, but her attention is divided when she realizes that her lover, Eric Northman, and his "child", Pam, are plotting to kill the vampire who is now their master. Gradually, Sookie is drawn into the plot - which is much more complicated than she knows.

    BRANDON says: "Antiques RoadShow, Burned Hair & Elvis"
    "Mediocre at best"
    Overall

    *sigh*

    I love the Sookie Stackhouse series but this one just didn't quite meet the mark. There were editing gaffe's all over the place (for example, a character acting as though they didn't know something that was just told to them in the previous chapter) and lots of repetition. So much mention of the fairies but nothing done with that plotline. I Just not as enthralling as previous books in the series. Hopefully book #12 will be better and will pick up the threads that were just left hanging in this installment.
