Hoo boy. I haven’t read Murakami since college like 10 yrs ago. Was he always this bad at writing women? The first 25% of this book is the protagonist wondering whether he should bang a chubby 17 yo clad in all pink (who is mute to start!!!!), while any other woman is a fantasy sex object. The sci-fi concepts here could’ve been good but were cheapened by the technobabble trap of needing to over explain and an unrewarding resolution to the central mystery. I did enjoy the elements of horror, however. ( )

Nice parallel storytelling but the novel is a bit too backlogged with worldbuilding and a plot that wears a bit. I think I liked the EOW line more than the Hard Boiled storyline. ( )

I went back to reread my review of Wind-Up Bird Chronicle to refresh my memory on how I thought about Murakami then versus now. I still think he's a master, but I think my feeling about Hard-Boiled Wonderland are more complicated than my feelings about Wind-Up Bird Chronicle. I could really do without a lot of the science fiction stuff in the Hard-Boiled Wonderland segments, but overall this is so stunningly written (especially the End of the World portions) that I feel like I can't give it anything less than a five.

Why does the sun go on shining
Why does the sea rush to shore
Don't they know it's the end of the world
'Cause you don't love me any more

Why do the birds go on singing
Why do the stars glow above
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when I lost your love

I wake up in the morning and I wonder
Why everything's the same as it was
I can't understand, no, I can't understand
How life goes on the way it does

Why does my heart go on beating
Why do these eyes of mine cry
Don't they know it's the end of the world
It ended when you said goodbye ( )

He has become the foremost representatives of a new style of Japanese writing: hip, cynical and highly stylized, set at the juncture of cyberpunk, postmodernism, and hard-boiled detective fiction.... Murakami [is] adept at deadpan wit, outrageous style.

Murakami's bold willingness to go straight over the top [is] a signal indication of his genius... a world-class writer who has both eyes open and takes big risks.

The elevator continued its impossibly slow ascent.
Elevatoren var på vej op i ekstremt langosmt tempo. Eller det forestillede jeg mig i det mindste. Jeg var ikke sikker. Det gik så langsomt, at jeg havde mistet orienteringen. Det kunne lige så godt være, at den var på vej ned, eller at den slet ikke bevægede sig.

But on the phenomenological level, this world is only one out of countless possibillities. As you create memories, you're creatin' a parallel world
...I walked right into her backside. It was wonderfully cushioning, like a firm rain cloud.
