1Q84 - Jay Rubin, Philip Gabriel, Haruki Murakami Regarding structure, this novel was masterfully crafted. The interconnectedness of the characters and their thoughts, actions and experiences was amazingly detailed. Also, the descriptive analogies were a pleasure to read. However, I can't ignore the fact that while reading this novel, I spent a lot of time either mildly curious or just plain bored. That is not the way a person wants to spend 925 pages.
