Unexpected Read-a-Like

Many have tried to assert that certain books will appeal to Stieg Larsson’s readers. NPR reviewer Alan Cheuse  makes this surprising comparison,

Do you miss the girl with the dragon tattoo? Do you long for the thrill of following her adventures again through three volumes of exciting, intelligent fiction? If so, I have good news for you. She’s got a sort of soul sister in one of the two main characters in Haruki Murakami’s wonderful novel 1Q84.

He agrees with most other reviewers that readers will be compelled to read all 900+ pages of the novel, which comes out today.
