    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.

    Daniel says: "Classic Murakami, No Ultraviolence"
    "Amazing writing style, excellent voice acting"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book to a friend. The casual way in which Murakami illustrates the incredible and fantastical happenings is enthralling. Also, the dual voice actors really add to the contrast between alternating stories in alternating chapters.


    What other book might you compare Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World to and why?

    I think that the closest thing I've read would have to be Snakes and Earrings and I believe they are similar just by style and maybe Japanese voice. Things seem to just happen to the main characters rather than them playing a strong active role.


    Have you listened to any of Adam Sims and Ian Porter ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, but they did an excellent job with the characters of this book.


    Who was the most memorable character of Hard-boiled Wonderland and the End of the World and why?

    Its interesting because he is not anyone extraordinary, but I think the main character just because you are constantly witnessing the incredible happenings from his eyes.
