I started my Haruki Murakami adventure with Norwegian Wood. An excellently written book that leaves you longing for more. Murakami instills life in his characters so much so, that as a reader, you can’t help but feel attached to them.
Recently I read 1Q84, which I thought was absolutely brilliant! The book comes in 3 parts. I have only read parts 1 and 2 so far (which you can get together) and I can’t wait to read the next part!
In brief, the story is based on two characters, Aomame and Tengo. They both put themselves in a risky situation that could put their lives in danger. Their enemy is powerful and hard to approach. But while protecting themselves, Aomame and Tengo still need to make sense of the world around them, that now has 2 moons.
1Q84 is another of Murakami’s fantastical novels that blends both magic realism and adventure. I would highly recommend that people read it! And while you’re at it, check out his other books 😉
