The year is 1984. Aomame sits in a taxi on the expressway in Tokyo. Her work is secret but she is in a hurry to carry out an assignment and, with the traffic at a standstill, the taxi driver proposes a solution. She agrees. Meanwhile, Tengo’s life is nondescript life but he dreams of becoming a writer. Aomame and Tengo's stories influence one another as they become increasingly distanced from the world. As they begin to decipher more about the strange world into which they have slipped they sense their destinies converging. 1Q84 is a thriller, a love-story and an ode to George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four. Murakami’s work is distinctive in its sense of a dreamlike passage in the world, mysterious coincidences, music and romantic connections.
