    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....

    Sonia says: "Imagine if you were a character within a book..."
    "How many loose ends can one book have???"

    Story
    Would you try another book from the authors and/or the narrators?

    The story sets up so many intriguing scenarios that you want to keep reading, the female role was completely repetitive and annoying at times but it was still enough to keep on. It was on the verge of becoming an intricately bound novel with multiple layers, instead it fell flat in almost all plot lines, Characters appear & disappear,they suggest a larger story which is then left mostly untouched, yes there are 2 moons we get it!.I got to the end and went back through the book again to see if I missed any chapters?????


    Has 1Q84 turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What does the narrators bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The ability to finish, far to long and repetitive in the main points.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    no
