I just started on the 1Q84 trilogy by Murakami. It's a collection band with all three books combined. As such it is one of the biggest books I've ever read (1400 pages) rivalling The Stand and LOTR. I'm about 100 pages in and I still don't really know what this book is about, although there are some interesting things happening. The setting, 80's Japan, is also very interesting. I don't know a lot about modern-day Japanese culture and as such this book is intriguing to me even because of the setting alone.
