Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami

In this novel, two parallel narratives intertwine, one following a data encryptor in a dystopian, futuristic Tokyo who becomes embroiled in the machinations of a mysterious scientist and his granddaughter, the other set in a surreal, dreamlike town where a man is tasked with reading old dreams from unicorn skulls. As the story progresses, it becomes evident that the two worlds are connected in a profound and unsettling way, leading to a shocking conclusion that explores themes of consciousness, identity, and the nature of reality.
