Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of The World

Science fiction, detective story and post-modern manifesto all rolled into one rip-roaring novel, Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World is the tour de force that expanded Haruki Murakami's international following.

Hard-Boiled Wonderland And The End Of The World

The English translation by Alfred Birnbaum was released in A strange and dreamlike novel, its chapters alternate between two bizarre narratives—"Hard-Boiled Wonderland" a cyberpunk -like, science fiction part and "The End of the World" a virtual fantasy-like, surreal part. The story is split between parallel narratives. The odd-numbered chapters take place in the 'Hard-Boiled Wonderland', although the phrase is not used anywhere in the text, only in page headers.

The narrator completes an assignment for a mysterious scientist, who is exploring "sound removal".

Tweets by SFReviewsnet This early work by Murakami gives tantalizing glimpses of the otherworldly imagination he'd hone to near-perfection in later novels. Indeed, said imagination appears to have sprung fully formed from his cortex. Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World may not always be consistent in tone or execution, but it's often brilliant and always utterly unlike most anything else on the racks. It's like a game of hide-and-go-seek in the playground of the mind, where the true nature of self is just a little too well hidden to be found.
