The last surviving victim of an experiment that implanted the subjects' heads with electrodes that decipher coded messages is the unnamed narrator. Half the chapters are set in Tokyo, where the narrator negotiates underground worlds populated by INKlings, dodges opponents of both sides of a raging high-tech infowar, and engages in an affair with a beautiful librarian with a gargantuan appetite. In alternating chapters he tries to reunite with his mind and his shadow, from which he has been severed by the grim, dark "replacement" consciousness implanted in him by a dotty neurophysiologist. Both worlds share the unearthly theme of unicorn skulls that moan and glow.… (mais)

A wonderful weird novel by a master writer. As seeing Mr. Murakami is one of my favorite authors, I’m happy I finally got around to this one.

In this story we have two different timelines. We have an unnamed narrator who’s working for the system setting up with a task involving a company and INKlings. He meets this girl and after he performs a task for someone who calls himself the professor all sort of weird things happens. The other narrative is from the perspective of a “dreamreader” he’s in this town that has a wall around it. He’s separated from his shadow and gets a job in the library as a dreamreader.

As usually a book by Haruki Murakami is weird. Most of the time you have no idea what is going on. I say this meaning it in a good way. This is my 8th Murakami and so far, I loved almost all of them, with this one being no exception. The different narrations were really interesting and I kept waiting for them to make sense as to why they were in this same book. As per usual you don’t really get a straight answer to this. I think that’s one of the biggest parts why I like his books so much. It feels like you get a glimpse into someone’s life with no real beginning or ending just like you would in the real world. Of course, this had its problems, like all books by Murakami I’m not 100% into the way female characters are described. It’s a bit too sexualized for me. Having said that, the way he can describe a scene or someone’s thought is just beautiful and I can’t wait for more of his books.

If you’re a Murakami lover you’ll likely like this as well. If you are into weird novels that don’t make a lot of sense but are beautifully written? You have to pick up his work.

Dos historias paralelas se desarrollan en escenarios de nombre evocador: una transcurre en el "fin del mundo", una ciudad amurallada; la otra, en Tokio, "País de las Maravillas". en la primera, el protagonista se ve privado de su sombra, entre extraños habitantes y unicornios. En la segunda historia, el narrador es un informático cuyos servicios son requeridos por un inquietante científico que viv en la red de alcantarillado, poblada por tenebrosas criaturas carnívoras.

The thing about reading novels in translation is that I am always left with the nagging sensation that I've missed the real story, and if only I could dedicate a few years to gaining fluency my opinion would change. As I'm unmotivated to put in that work, however, I can only respond to the novel I've read, imperfect as it may be.

So this was my first encounter with Murakami's fiction, and for some reason it failed to really grab my attention. It was clever, certainly, with the interwoven narrative and the density of cultural/literary references... however I think there was something to the pacing that left me uninterested.

There wasn't much I can particularly point to as things I disliked, although hearing the narrator wax eloquent about the joys and failings of his genitalia was something of a low point.

I think I just don't have strong opinions on this story. Yeah, it's trying to allude to some interesting questions regarding identity/mind/unconscious self, but it never did more than sketch outlines. There is one moment that sticks, however-- when the narrator asks the Colonel, who is without "mind", why then he has been kind to him, the Colonel responds thus:

"Kindness and a caring mind are two separate qualities. Kindness is manners. It is superficial custom, and acquired practice. Not so the mind. The mind is deeper, stronger, and, I believe, it is far more inconstant."


Regardless of the slow pace, the struggle to find enjoyment, I suppose that moment makes up for the price of admission. ( )

I have really enjoyed the Murakami books I have read so far and it felt like the right time to delve into another one. I've had this on my TBR for a few years now and I'm still a little intimidated by the length of IQ84. At about 400 pages I felt that this would be the ideal mixture in terms of length and content.

As I tend to avoid reviews prior to reading a book I was surprised that the chapters alternate between two different stories. At first I found this quite disconcerting and I kept putting it down for a few days at a time. After a while though, I settled into this rhythm and as the book went on I felt like it really worked.

Another thing that stood out was the lack of names for the characters. Everyone is known as 'The Gatekeeper', 'The Librarian' etc and we never find out the name of the main protagonist. I have come across this in the past with other books and it does leave a little distance between me and the characters. In some cases this would be a problem but I always really like the underlying sense of despair in Murakami's work and I feel that these things work well together.

The actual stories are well told and I really enjoyed both of them. Once I got into the book I kept having to pick the book up and see what was going to happen next. I also really liked the ending, I was concerned the book would go one way and it didn't, I'll leave it there so I don't spoil anything.

This would be a 5 if it wasn't for the fact that it took me a while to get into. ( )

Hoo boy. I haven’t read Murakami since college like 10 yrs ago. Was he always this bad at writing women? The first 25% of this book is the protagonist wondering whether he should bang a chubby 17 yo clad in all pink (who is mute to start!!!!), while any other woman is a fantasy sex object. The sci-fi concepts here could’ve been good but were cheapened by the technobabble trap of needing to over explain and an unrewarding resolution to the central mystery. I did enjoy the elements of horror, however. ( )

He has become the foremost representatives of a new style of Japanese writing: hip, cynical and highly stylized, set at the juncture of cyberpunk, postmodernism, and hard-boiled detective fiction.... Murakami [is] adept at deadpan wit, outrageous style.

Murakami's bold willingness to go straight over the top [is] a signal indication of his genius... a world-class writer who has both eyes open and takes big risks.

The elevator continued its impossibly slow ascent.
Elevatoren var på vej op i ekstremt langosmt tempo. Eller det forestillede jeg mig i det mindste. Jeg var ikke sikker. Det gik så langsomt, at jeg havde mistet orienteringen. Det kunne lige så godt være, at den var på vej ned, eller at den slet ikke bevægede sig.
