This May Be the Most Important Proposition

This may be the most important proposition revealed by history: “At the time, no one knew what was coming.”

From the first page of Haruki Murakami’s 1Q84 (translated by Jay Rubin). His earlier books that I’ve read have been wonderful dream factories, but I’ve seen this one scoring some negative reviews. I don’t know what’s coming over the next 925 pages, but I have hope that it’ll be good.
