1Q84

1Q84 cover art1Q84 by Haruki Murakami

We’re currently reading this book for our Titles on Tap event!

“Murakami is like a magician who explains what he’s doing as he performs the trick and still makes you believe he has supernatural powers . . . But while anyone can tell a story that resembles a dream, it’s the rare artist, like this one, who can make us feel that we are dreaming it ourselves.” —The New York Times Book Review
 
“The year is 1984 and the city is Tokyo.

A young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver’s enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her. She has entered, she realizes, a parallel existence, which she calls 1Q84 —“Q is for ‘question mark.’ A world that bears a question.” Meanwhile, an aspiring writer named Tengo takes on a suspect ghostwriting project. He becomes so wrapped up with the work and its unusual author that, soon, his previously placid life begins to come unraveled.”

This book effortlessly combines the characters and the era in which they live, to subtlety give us an in-depth understanding of life in the 1930’s for young New Yorkers striving to move up the economic ladder and the social ladder as well.

the walk

The Walk

the walkThe Walk by Richard Paul Evans

This is the first book of a five book series. It is the story of a man who loses everything-his job, his home and his wife and how he travels from the west to east coast and the people he meets along the way who help him and those he helps. Strongly recommend this book and the other ones that follow!

The Invisible Bridge

the invisible bridgeThe Invisible Bridge by Patricis MacLachlin

When Sarah Wheaton shows up in Kansas to answer an add for a mail order bride, the Witting family is unsure if she will fit into their life on the prairie. Very sweet and romantic without giving into sentimentality.

Set in present day New York City, this story follows the life of a young boy who survives an apparent terrorist attack at an art museum. Very quick reading. No wonder it won the Pulitzer Prize.
