Having reached the sticking point in 1Q84 I can go back to reading it in Japanese, but I don't want to. I need to know what will happen too badly. Then again, if we're descending once again into 'oh I know this one' then, yes, Japanese will do fine. Our library has vol 3 in Japanese, if I want to finish it in that language. It also has Kafka on the Shore in Japanese, which tempts me... if I want to read more Japanese.
Jemisin's secondary worlds are too complicated for me to deal with when I'm multi-voluming stuff. They require undivided attention. And as my attention is tripartite at the moment, I'm tempted to go with The Master of Ballantrae. April is turning into Amnesty Month when all I read are male authors. Not white male authors, with Saunders and Murakami and Okri if I get to him, but male, certainly.
