IQ84 (Haruki Murakami)


The longest and hardest book I have ever read. It has multiple threads, symbolism, and imageries that you want to give up reading and yet you just can’t. Certainly, I love the synopsis and plot outline, but tedious hit me hard. I couldn’t believe I felt like reading my Algebra textbook, hoping it would end soon.  I hate the repetitive and so much details of information and description. I don’t like some of the side characters prolong the story, it tends to be draggy to the certain point of becoming unexciting.

I know there is some certain sort of readers who liked this book, it’s just that never had reached my expectation. I didn’t feel the adventure, only the curiosity helped me to the finishing line. However, the journey is over and glad I’m back in the world of there is only one moon to look up.

Verdict: 3/5
