    Longlisted for the Booker prize 2021

    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, 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?

    Underwhelming

    Interesting ideas and thoughts, but nothing was ever done with them. The story continued on its merry way and no one had to really make any sort of difficult decisions.

    A masterpiece of negative space

    It’s about what’s left unsaid, just suggested at the margins. An unforgettable performance by the narrator gives life to Klara.

    Rather just ok

    I expected more to be honest. The story or rather the idea of it has potential. But then... very long and a bit tiresome talks that do not seem to lead anywhere, long observations without need... Not really boring but I always found out, they were unnecessary in the end. Don't know. Whenever it became interesting or exciting it was not going anywhere. So, I am a bit unsatisfied and confused. Pity.

    Vastly overrated.

    Lacks originality, extremely slow, and uneventful. Especially the second half, that practically crawls to a halt. Not recommended.

    Good bock but...

    Sadly the voice pattern of the reader is so monotone and repetitive in intonation, I couldn't finish this...

    Good book but frustrating

    I really liked the protagonist and how she viewed and interpreted the world around her. Her alien and often naive, yet oddly perceptive mind showed a deeply flawed human society through the eyes of someone decidedly not human. The themes of loneliness, injustice, and life as a disposable commodity were frighteningly accurate as well as poignant. However, the ending, as logical as it was, depressed and frustrated me. This isn't a flaw per se, but something subjective, an emotional response that the story elicited. Books are meant to make us feel, and this one left me feeling impressed, yet small and empty. It's a very good book. I shan't be reading it again.
