Description

The extraordinary new novel from the author of Never Let Me Go and the Booker Prize winning The Remains of the Day. The Romans have long since departed, and Britain is steadily declining into ruin. But at least the wars that once ravaged the country have ceased. The Buried Giant begins as a couple, Axl and Beatrice, set off across a troubled land of mist and rain in the hope of finding a son they have not seen for years. They expect to face many hazards - some strange and other-worldly - but they cannot yet foresee how their journey will reveal to them dark and forgotten corners of their love for one another. Sometimes savage, often intensely moving, Kazuo Ishiguro's first novel in a decade is about lost memories, love, revenge and war.

If you are interested in Murakami’s novel, you might be tempted to buy this book. Unfortunately, Ishiguro is not comparable to Murakami, it is like comparing apples to oranges. Both are good, but Ishiguro is way more readable(as opposed to groping in the dark with Murakami).

The narrative takes place in Britain in the days shortly after the death of Arthur. Britons and Saxons are no longer at war and they even live together, but that seems to be in part because a strange forgetfulness lies over the land. Ishiguro’s language and descriptions reinforce a sense of cloudiness, indistinctness, that boarders at times on fairytale. Ogres, witches, pixies, and dragons... See More

are part of the atmosphere, although it is not always easy to discern what is real in the external world and what exists only in the minds of the characters. Yet even an issue such as this is hard to pin down, events, people, and circumstances continually altering as in a dream, nothing and no one long remaining what they at present seem.
