Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World draws readers into a narrative particle accelerator in which a split-brained data processor, a deranged scientist, his shockingly undemure granddaughter, Lauren Bacall, Bob Dylan, and various thugs, librarians, and subterranean monsters collide to dazzling effect. What emerges is simultaneously cooler than zero and unaffectedly affecting, a hilariously funny and deeply serious meditation on the nature and uses of the mind.

    👍Worth reading

    Historien, som bliver fortalt, er i sig selv opfindsom og mystisk. Der er en dybere mening med de mange sære ting, der foregår, og jeg må indrømme, at den ikke helt er klar for mig. Men så kan bogen bare læses, som en mærkelig fortælling.

    🚀Unputdownable

    This book has been a rather epic experience to read. I admit that at some points the technicalities of a protagonists work known as 'shuffling' got a bit too complicated for me to fully comprehend, but that did not stop me from enjoying the story. The characters are, though hard to fully sympathize with, very vivid and developed.
    I know I enjoyed something when I'm sad to have finished it, this definitely fits that description.

    👎Give This a Miss

    Never connected to any character. Some ideas were very original, but the main character and overall story are not as strong in this book compared to others by Murakami.

Quotes

  • Яна М.has quoted3 years ago
    Two people can sleep in the same bed and still be alone when they close their eyes, if you know what I mean.
  • Intan Nadhirhas quoted8 years ago
    Almost meditative in their stillness

    Maybe no one finds it, or even misses it, but fairness is like love. What is given has nothing to do with what we seek.
