1Q84I just read 1Q84, by Murakami Haruki. Reading the 700 pages was very exciting: I read it without knowing absolutely anything about the content (I chose it because I liked the cover) and it’s one of those books where everything is revealed in the end. The asked me “what’s that book? What’s the story?”, I had to reply “I dunno, there are two people, but I don’t know how they can relate each other” until I got around half book.

To be honest, when I got to the end of the book I was disappoined and I shouted “what the f*ck!”: I felt like that book reviewer inside this story, after reading the fictional book Air Chrysalis , wrote a disappointed review like

A very interesting story, keeps engaged until the end, but we still don’t know what’s the Air Chrysalis and the Little People

Disappointed, I google for an explanation, because how a detailed book like this could have such a short ending?

Luckily, looks like the story will continue in a third volume, not yet translated from japanese! (In Utaly the publisher merged the first two books in one volume, I don’t know about other countries) I’m eager to read it!
