1Q84: Book 3

by Haruki Murakami

Part of the 1Q84 Series

1Q84: Book 3 Synopsis

Book Two of 1Q84 ended with Aomame standing on the Metropolitan Expressway with a gun between her lips. She knows she is being hunted, and that she has put herself in terrible danger in order to save the man she loves. But things are moving forward, and Aomame does not yet know that she and Tengo are more closely bound than ever. Tengo is searching for Aomame, and he must find her before this world's rules loosen up too much. He must find her before someone else does.

1Q84: Book 3 Press Reviews

Murakami's magnum opus * Japan Times * 1Q84 has a range and sophistication that surpasses anything else in his oeuvre. It is his most achieved novel; an epic in which form and content are neatly aligned... So like Murakami himself, I'll borrow from Orwell: 1Q84 is quite simply doubleplusgood * Independent on Sunday * 1Q84 reads like a cross between Stieg Larsson and Roberto Bolano...

Posh and pop, sublimity and superficiality, history and fantasy, trash and transcendence: they switch positions and then fuse -- Boyd Tonkin * Independent *

His books became bestsellers, were translated into many languages, including English, and the door was thrown wide open to Murakami's ...
