My Book Win: 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami, Australian edition


Look what came in the mail today, all the way from Australia ! My lovely book win from book blogger Mandy at The Narrative Causality!! Thank you, Mandy.

I will treasure this edition, which is about two inches thick and printed on lovely paper. There was slight crumpling to a corner of the book cover, from being in transit, but not a problem! The brand new book is in excellent condition!

I gave this a 5 in my original review. If you want to find out more about the book, here are my Thoughts on 1Q84.

Do you like the cover of the Australian/British edition? I like the images of the double moons that are so significant in the novel.

Again, thank you Mandy, from Ohio to Australia!

I do love that cover! I'm very interested in this one, but it's soooo long -- I'd be reading it for the rest of the year.

Sounds pretty good!

I love the UK/Australian covers for all of Murakami's books. Those are the ones most prominent on the Murakami challenge blog, right? It's always such a visual treat for me when I visit that site.

I'm off to read your review of this one!

So stoked it arrived safely and mostly intact (sorry about the slight crumpling grr). Once you told me the covers were different I checked out the USA edition and I think I like our Aussie one better, it is more relevant to the book and a little more eerie/creepy.

Hope you enjoy this one. I have the Kindle edition but haven't ventured into it's depths yet LOL
