"Critics have variously likened him to Raymond Carver, Raymond Chandler, Arthur C. Clarke, Don DeLillo, Philip K. Dick, Bret Easton Ellis and Thomas Pynchon - a roster so ill assorted as to suggest Murakami is in fact an original" New York Times "[1Q84] may become a mandatory read for anyone trying to get to grips with contemporary Japanese culture... [It is Murakami's] magnum opus." Japan Times

Having said that, the book does have plots and action and suspense. It is at once a romance, a detective story, a family drama, a fantasy, a thriller. It is, in fact, one of the most unusual romances ever. It makes social/political/religious commentary, although Murakami is so good at presenting multiple points of view, I could not tell his personal view, except he obviously thinks there is no point in an ordinary life.
But, don't read it for those reasons. Read it, because it is just plain enjoyable.
