There's one book that was making headlines recently – Haruki Murakami's 1Q84. There is a lot of publicity surrounding this book; some argue it is because this in-demand author had taken a long time before releasing a new novel while other argue that it was due to the secrecy surrounding the actual story of the novel. Whatever the case, there was quite a buzz when the book was released. The book itself is a two-parter with a third part set for release in 2010. The English version of this novel will come out in 2011.
