Book Description
The universally acclaimed novel--winner of the Booker Prize and the basis for an award-winning film.

Here is Kazuo Ishiguro's profoundly compelling portrait of Stevens, the perfect butler, and of his fading, insular world in post-World War II England. Stevens, at the end of three decades of service at Darlington Hall, spending a day on a country drive, embarks as well on a journey through the past in an effort to reassure himself that he has served humanity by serving the "great gentleman," Lord Darlington. But lurking in his memory are doubts about the true nature of Lord Darlington's "greatness," and much graver doubts about the nature of his own life.
A profoundly compelling portrait of the perfect English butler and of his fading insular world in postwar England. "One of the best books of the year".-- The New York Times Book Review.

Deeply Touching
By: Dine Rostianti

Mr. Stevens (throughout this book, I didn’t find his first name), a highly professional butler, highly dedicated to his work, even suppressed his emotions, feelings and personal life. The story is told from the point of view of Mr. Stevens as the first person. The story is filled with various flashbacks of Mr. Stevens in reviewing the moments of life that had passed during his life in Darlington Hall. Flashbacks are not in chronological order based on time, but based on moments that reminded Mr. Stevens of the past. The reader is brought into Mr. Stevens' thoughts and feelings at present moment and in flashbacks. Mr. Stevens, who is very careful in his speech and behavior,... See More

tells the reader about his thoughts and feelings, in very polite language. With the touching climax on the last pages, it's hard not to sympathize with Mr. Stevens with everything he's gone through.
