1Q84

Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Alison Hiroto, Marc Vietor, Mark Boyett

Fiction • 47 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The three performers ideally complement Murakami's fantastic Japanese tale. This outstanding translation weaves the stories of a beautiful vigilante assassin who is caught in a bewildering warp of dimensions and an aspiring writer who is asked to ghostwrite a disturbing fantasy (which just might be reality). Both narratives eventually converge and become deeply tangled. This imaginative, lengthy novel satisfies as a mystery, fantasy, and humorous coming-of-age tale—all blended with the vagaries of love and loss in a dystopia mired in strange cults and mathematical/musical dreamscapes. One surmises that it’s no accident that the book's enigmatic title relates to George Orwell's 1984. With precise enunciation, the narrators make Murakami's multilayered vision a cohesive and engaging experience as they immerse themselves in the novel's complex threads and their profoundly divergent roles.
