Information is everything in Hard-boiled Wonderland. A specialist encrypter is attacked by thugs with orders from an unknown source, is chased by invisible predators, and dates an insatiably hungry librarian who never puts on weight. In the End of the World a new arrival is learning his role as dream-reader. But there is something eerily disquieting about the changeless nature of the town and its fable-like inhabitants. Told in alternate chapters, the two stories converge and combine to create a novel that is surreal, beautiful, thrilling and extraordinary.

    " I had to read this twice in that it was so different from other Murakami books that I have read. Like counting the change in two different pockets, it was an adventure from beginning to end "

    " This book was bizarre in a thrilling way that kept you guessing and wondering about metaphysics. "

    " Haunting, dark, crazy imaginative. I loved Murakami before this book, but this novel hooked me to his writing forever. A genre-defying SF novel that dwells deeply into identity and the sense of time. "
