Aomame a small breasted woman is an assassin who targets men who mistreat women Tengo a large man teaches math and is a writer Tengo the large man and Aomame the small breasted woman once held hands as children and although they have not seen each other in the twenty years since they are still soul mates Tengo the math teacher becomes embroiled in a conspiracy to re write the novella “Air Chrysalis” by Fuka Eri a large breasted teenager which is a good story written poorly Tengo when he is not teaching math or writing misses Aomame the small breasted woman with whom he once held hands Aomame when she is not killing misogynists or lamenting the size of her breasts misses Tengo the large man with whom she once held hands Aomame has mysteriously been transported from her own world of 1984 to the mysterious new world of 184 which has two moons and is controlled to some degree by the Little People who say “ho ho” Aomame sees there are two moons Tengo sees there are two moons There are two moons One is normal the other is small and green The normal moon is the moon from 1984 but the other moon which is small and green can be seen only in 184 the mysterious other world which is controlled to some degree by the Little People Tengo has a recurring memory from when he was an infant of seeing a man who was not his father suckle at Tengo’s mother’s breasts Women have breasts Some breasts are large Fuka Eri’s while others are small Aomame’s Aomame laments this fact Aomame yearns for larger breasts She also yearns for Tengo the writer whose hand she held twenty years before when they were ten They have not seen each other since but they still love one another Aomame does not allow this to distract her from her mission which is assassinating men who have grievously mistreated women Aomame was raised in the cult of the Society of Witnesses Tengo was raised by his father after his mother died when he was young His father collected NHK fees This was not the man Tengo recalls seeing suckle at his mother’s breasts Tengo was often forced to accompany his father on his work trips collecting NHK fees Aomame was often forced to accompany her parents spreading the evangel The Little People say “ho ho” There are two moons Tengo is a large man Women also have pubic hair unless they don’t in which case they are probably ghosts or shadows in which case no man can be held accountable for sexually assaulting them no matter their age The Little People are assumed to be evil although mostly the Little People just say “ho ho” Women who are victims get what’s coming to them George Orwell wrote a book called 1984 The year is 1984 Aomame yearns for Tengo Tengo yearns for Aomame Ushikawa an ugly man is unpleasant to look at

Haruki Murakami ô 2 Summary

Its unusual author that soon his previously placid life begins to come unraveled As Aomame’s and Tengo’s narratives converge over the course of this single year we learn of the profound and tangled connections that bind them ever closer a beautiful dyslexic teenage girl with a uniue vision; a mysterious religious cult that instigated a shoot out with the metropolitan police; a reclusive wealthy dowager who runs a shelter for abus. 184 is undoubtedly the biggest literary let down I have ever come across The synopsis and plot outline sound fascinating the reviews have been glowing am I trying to read a different 184 than everyone else Apparently not judging by the far too few reviews that sum up my feelings towards this nothing of a book One of my favourite lines from one of my favourite of these few reviews is as follows from theatlanticcom It's hard to believe that some of the critics praising 184 didn't really feel at times like throwing the book in the air and walking away Trying to say anything definite about it is like trying to nail Jell O to a wall Even the title's allusion to Orwell seems vague It's an elaborate puzzle which when assembled adds up to a picture of a perfect blank For me reading it was the literary euivalent of biting into a large pumped up soufflé After finishing five pounds of book I was still hungry — for a novel The only difference between this critic's view of the book and mine is that I remain unable to finish the damn thing Putting the nothingness of the book aside there are plenty of other frustrating issues to contend withThese are a few of the problems I personally had with 184Aomame comes across as a flat two dimensional character whose main purpose is to serve as an older male fantasy Within a few pages of meeting her she experiences flashbacks of a detailed lesbian encounter she experienced with a friend though she is not in fact lesbian bi sexual in the slightest bit attracted to woman This would not be an issue if it appeared to serve any purpose towards her character development but it doesn't Instead it begins to follow the pornographic trend of girl on girl sex for the sole purpose of pleasing men Literally Aomame and the other woman have sex for NO other reason then to attract the men they have picked up To clarify again Aomame doesn't particularly want to have sex with the other woman at all This sterotypically male fantasy further continues as the reader is told countless times how she is attracted only to much older men with receding hairlines and proceeds to detail each of these sexual encounters There is nothing wrong with any of the aforementioned as it stands to each their own and it would not be a problem if it served a purpose to the story but as far as I'm aware so far it really doesn't The story would in no way be impacted if any of these scenes were to be removed Aomame is in no way empowered by the depiction of her sex life instead she is an object a pornagraphic object again apparently designed for the titillation of the readerIf it's in the best interest of the book in uestion I am perfectly ok with reading about bigoted characters or even books written by writers with an obvious agenda that clashes with my own beliefs if the book is good and provokes thought 184 is not one of these books The blatant misogyny does not serve a purpose and therefore I must assume that it was not considered to be an issue at all for the purposes of the book I honestly felt that all the female characters in this were written as fantasy not just Aomame but Every Single Woman There is the older married girlfriend who serves no purpose other than to be a sexual object for Tengo she doesn't even have a name; there is the police woman who befriends Aomame and constantly wants sex with her though she is self declared completely straight and appears to serve no other purpose in the book she isn't grappling with her sexuality this isn't an exploration of multifaceted ueerness or a critiue of the heteronormative structures that this character exists within she simply is there to have girl on girl sex without the complications of actual character development; and even with Fuka Eri attention was spent on the shape of her breasts than on her merits as a person or writer It's also been brought to my attention that there are many other instances of blatant misogyny that I have missed in the review this is clearly not an exhaustive list and I only got two thirds of the way through the book Feel free to share thoughts below that's what the comment section is forOther books allow viewpoints such as this to be limited to the perspective of a character The narrator in Hard Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World muses on his attraction to an slightly overweight woman and his surprise that she is attractive A little unpleasant yes but it fits in with how his character progresses He is largely respectful towards the girl in uestion and to the other women in the book and is overall a rather sympathetic character Hajime in South of the Border West of the Sun is rather unlikeable in this respect with the way he treats the women in his life but again this is part of the journey of his character 184 goes so far beyond that the sexism that permeates this entire story is not limited to character and is irredeemableTengo is likeable to a point but all his segments of the story are the most repetitive in the book which is a constant source of frustration Also and likely because of this he doesn't really do much He has a lot of sex with his older married girlfriend and we know that she is older and married because that statement appears to have taken the place of her name appearing at least 5 times in every chapter about Tengo view spoilerI will also admit that I grew very very weary of every conversation she had with Tengo being punctuated by lines such as she said to him massaging his scrotum in her hand hide spoiler

184 parts 1 3 ichi kyū hachi yonThe year is 1984 and the city is TokyoA young woman named Aomame follows a taxi driver’s enigmatic suggestion and begins to notice puzzling discrepancies in the world around her She has entered she realizes a parallel existence which she calls 184 “ is for ‘uestion mark’ A world that bears a uestion” Meanwhile an aspiring writer named Tengo takes on a suspect ghostwriting project He becomes so wrapped up with the work and. I just finished 184 and already I've begun to notice strange peculiarities in the world around me As I closed the book and stood up I looked around my shabby apartment Same walls same badly painted walls same James Dean poster but something seemed off Something infinitesimal The walls seemed closer or were they further away And James wasn't there a cigarette clasped between your lips before Now you're just staring off into space with that amazing casual air of indifference I shut my eyes and shake my head It's just the residual effect of Murakami's prose I tell myself Nothing I went about the rest of my day as usual but late that night I fell into a restless sleep I had the strangest dreamI dreamt of him You know the one The one I love The one separated from me because of timing and distance and all the other inane trivialities that prevent us from taking the next logical step In my dream he was reading 184 as well Well actually he was just finishing it closing it with a self satisfied thwack for it is uite a tome Then he just sat there comtemplatively his fingers steepled together in a pyramid under his chin And suddenly I appeared there with him in my dream I like just walked in from off stage and sat down on the floor in front of him cross legged Is it weird to appear in your own dream I don't know if that's ever happened to me before Anyways we just talked all night about 184 about Tengo and Aomame the star crossed NO moon crossed lovers We talked about the people they knew and loved Ayumi Komatsu and Tengo's dad Tengo's married older lover The dowager that befriends and mentors Aomame and her stoic level headed gay bodyguard Tamaru We discussed Fuka Eri and the strange cult Sakigake she escaped and the stranger story she wrote that Tengo had been hired to ghostwrite Air Chrysalis How this story acts as a catalyst for the whole novel it gets is moving Ushikawa Leader Buzzcut and Ponytail Tsubasa Professor Ebisuno and the three nurses that Tengo meets How he compares them to the witches from Macbeth And so many literary references it's like Murakami is name dropping Dickens Proust and Chekov to name a few And The Little People How could we forget The Little People How they just appear strangely and build the elusive Air Chrysalis The huge womb like peanut shaped furry glowing egg thingy that materializes by their hands seemingly out of thin air What does the Air Chrysalis represent And how does it tie in with Sakigake and Fuka Eri And utimately what's inside itBut than anything as I looked up into the eyes of the man I adored we spoke of love How this is above all A Love Story and an unbelievably hopeful one at that Because in 184 true love exists and it matters it makes a difference It obliterates obstacles it takes on a life of it's own And the connections that we make that we forge they last They live and breathe They are not ephemeral they are not gossamerAnd then I just woke up the dream dissolved as abruptly as it began Anyways after that I didn't really notice any changes in the world around me James Dean looks normal to me now But maybe I've just become accustomed to it all I don't know what Murakami is tapped into I don't know where his talent his inspiration comes from but it never fails to move me There's an ease and an elegance to his prose And it is absolutely magnificently beyond beautiful He defies classification I could go on and on He's a world class writer and this is a world class book
