Now this is a reason to read 1Q84!

Wow. The A.V. Club totally panned 1Q84. Check this out:

It’s difficult to stress just how stylistically clumsy 1Q84 is, especially in its sub-slash-fiction treatment of sex: “Tengo remembered his older girlfriend… Her deep sighs, her wet vagina.” Aomame, fantasizing about Tengo, lingers on his “big, strong genitals,” and her bodyguard, Tamaru, bizarrely observes, “When it comes to being gay, I’m in the big leagues.”

That’s “so bad it’s good” writing there, folks. Ha!
