Flying through 1Q84 so far. It’s gorgeous and such an easy read! Day three and I’ve just finished book one. Not even rushing,I gave myself a fortnight because I can read rather slowly sometimes but I can hardly put it down.

Seriously enjoying it a lot.

I keep thinking about this river somewhere, with the water moving really fast. And these two people in the water, trying to hold onto each other, holding on as hard as they can, but in the end it’s just too much. The current’s too strong. They’ve got to let go, drift apart.
