    Inhaltsangabe

    Hyperkinetic and relentlessly inventive, Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World is Haruki Murakami’s deep dive into the very nature of consciousness. 

    Across two parallel narratives, Murakami draws listeners into a mind-bending universe in which Lauren Bacall, Bob Dylan, a split-brained data processor, a deranged scientist, his shockingly undemure granddaughter, and various thugs, librarians, and subterranean monsters collide to dazzling effect. What emerges is a novel that is at once hilariously funny and a deeply serious meditation on the nature and uses of the mind.

    Kritikerstimmen

    “He has become the foremost representative of a new style of Japanese writing: hip, cynical, highly stylized, set at the juncture of cyberpunk, postmodernism, and hard-boiled detective fiction....Murakami [is] adept at deadpan wit, outrageous style.” (Los Angeles Times Magazine)

    “Fantastical, mysterious, and funny...a fantasy world that might have been penned by Franz Kafka.” (Philadelphia Inquirer)

    “Rich in action, suspense, odd characters and unexpected trifles...[a] provocative work.” (The Atlantic

    One of Murakami’s lesser books

    Though I like Murikami very much, I found the explanations of what is happening in this book, especially the part playing in Tokyo, too far-fetched. You almost need an engineering degree to follow it. The message he is trying to convey is quite classical, though, and had nothing to do with engineering. Very good story telling by Kirby Heyborne, as always.
