1Q84

I finished A Feast of Crows by George R. Martin and reserved the fourth book in the series, A Dance of Dragons. I also read the first book in Sara Douglass' series The Wayfarer Redemption.  While at the library I picked up 1Q84, the much acclaimed new novel by Haruki Murakami, who is one of my favorite authors. The reviews have called it a dystopian novel. I'm almost 1/4th way through it and so far don't think it dystopian; rather it seems to be more a dark fantasy. Perhaps I will see why it was called dysptopian the more I read. It IS very engaging, though. I read a bit and then stop to think about what I've read and ponder the threads connecting various parts of the two protagonist's lives.
Highly recommended.

This is my third book to read for 2012. I'm listening to Christopher Moore's Fool as a digital talking book. It's a very funny take on Shakespeare's Lear and is as off-the-wall as most of Moore's books.
