Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami
Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami. This book will take you on a laidback journey through the amazing and surreal imagination of Haruki Murakami. It will introduce you to a lot of music that most younger readers, like me, have never heard of. If you have a notepad, you may also want to note down the recipes included in the book. But I feel that once you start reading you will forget to take note of either the songs or the recipes.
Calcutecs. A town that is the end of the world. Unicorns. Shuffling. And much much more merge, diverge and merge again for an even tighter fit as two parallel stories open up a world of peace, calm and simple happiness.
This book will not disappoint the reader who likes Murakami. Or if you are a newcomer to Murakami, this book will be like discovering that magicians exist.
