Klara and the Sun [9780571364879]

(2 reviews) Write a Review

'The Sun always has ways to reach us.'

From her place in the store, Klara, an Artificial Friend with outstanding observational qualities, watches carefully the behaviour of those who come in to browse, and of those who pass in the street outside. She remains hopeful a customer will soon choose her, but when the possibility emerges that her circumstances may change for ever, Klara is warned not to invest too much in the promises of humans.

In Klara and the Sun, his first novel since winning the Nobel Prize in Literature, Kazuo Ishiguro looks at our rapidly-changing modern world through the eyes of an unforgettable narrator to explore a fundamental question: what does it mean to love?

From the bestselling and Booker Prize winning author of Never Let Me Go and The Remains of the Day, a stunning new novel - his first since winning the Nobel Prize in Literature - that asks, what does it mean to love?

A thrilling feat of world-building, a novel of exquisite tenderness and impeccable restraint, Klara and the Sun is a magnificent achievement, and an international literary event.
AUTHOR: Kazuo Ishiguro was born in Nagasaki, Japan, in 1954 and moved to Britain at the age of five. His eight previous works of fiction have earned him many honours around the world, including the Nobel Prize in Literature and the Booker Prize. His work has been translated into over fifty languages and The Remains of the Day and Never Let Me Go, both made into acclaimed films, have sold over a million copies each in Faber editions. He was given a knight hood in 2018 for Services to Literature. He also holds the decorations of Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres from France and the Order of the Rising Sun, Gold and Silver Star from Japan.

    Klara and the sun

    Posted by Chritstine Shepherd on 30th Apr 2021

    Avery odd book - not my sort of story - found it hard to get into, too futuristic and distopian for me - couldn't work out where it was set or when. Sorry, didn't enjoy it at all

    Klara and the Sun

    Posted by Seaside Gardener on 20th Apr 2021

    I would like to have given 4.5 stars because of the incompleteness, in my opinion, of the ending. It is a book that slowly invades one's mind, so that at the end it is still resonating, if anything as gentle as Klara can resonate. I think I will read it again because Klara is still there, in my mind.
