Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World, CD-Audio Book

Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World CD-Audio

Part of the Contemporary Fiction series



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.
