At times you might mistake this epic (and I mean 900+ pages, epic) love story by Japanese author Haruki Murakami for a thriller, mystery, or sci-fi novel — and that's sort of the beauty of it. 1Q84 spans genres, time, and space, but at its heart is a powerful story of love.

Love quote: "If you can love someone with your whole heart, even one person, then there's salvation in life. Even if you can't get together with that person."
