I read Before I Go To Sleep and it was as predicatble as it was dull...

Right know I'm about halfway into 1Q84 and I'm in love so far. :)

I second 1Q84. I loved it. My review will be up Friday.

Haven't read any of the others.

I really need to get 1Q84 - I generally hear nothing but great stuff about it. I already had it on my Amazon wishlist, but I added a few more from this list onto mine because they sounded interesting. My wishlist is going to explode though - I have 281 books saved to it. :(

Are all these books with the exception of Murakami's part of Oprah's book club or something? Who the hell is Chad Harbach? Maybe I would know this if I liked to watch baseball. I was unaware of the potential that there exists so many people who are really into baseball as well as literary fiction. I know there are a few, but I'm skeptical about a massive horde.
