I personally think the 1Q84 series looks best in hardback. Written to mimic the movements of a symphony, the third act resolves the storylines of Aomame and Tengo. Unlike many of Murakami's other popular books, namely The Wind-Up Bird Chronicle and Sputnik Sweetheart, 1Q84 did not leave me with the same impression of deliberately unfinished side-stories or abandoned side-characters. I especially enjoyed the recurring cameos of Buzzcut and Ponytail. Second time reading this allowed me to appreciate the story in even more detail.
