Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World

Haruki Murakami

The fantastical novels of Haruki Murakami have earned him a dedicated international fan-base and recurring success in the bestseller charts. In Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World , Murakami’s brilliant imagination seizes on the world’s most ingenious and complex invention: the human mind. Two contrasting worlds are envisaged. In Hard-Boiled Wonderland a ‘shuffler’ is at work in Tokyo, where the minds of the people have become servant to the requirements of the governmental ‘system’. In the surreal realm of the End of the World a ‘dreamreader’ sifts through memories, scattering them to oblivion. Gradually the alternate universes of the ‘shuffler’ and the ‘dreamreader’ are interwoven and Murakami’s ingenious conception of the mind becomes clear. A feast for the imagination - Murakami’s novel amazes, amuses and delights.
