Disturbing, compelling and very moving. I can't believe I've waited this long to read something by Kazuo Ishiguro. I'll definitely be reading more of his works.

I've reserved this book for the PordenoneLegge literature festival in Italy.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

I tried, but this just isn't my genre...

ETA: although I have read others by the same author and loved them.

It's a beautiful sunny day, so I will leave it near the tomb of Keats.

A woman left the book on a bench where I was sitting at the tomb of John Keats in Rome - another girl was sitting there and told me I should take it. It was eight months ago and I just read the book over the past few weeks. It was the first book I read of Ishiguro and I liked it very much. Near the end part of me was screaming inside: "Just get out of there! Make a run for it! Don't you understand the concept of free will?" The idea of these people just accepting their lives the way society set it up for them, without question, was frustrating. But perhaps, in many ways, we are doing the same. How many of us live our lives the way we feel we are "supposed" to live it, as dictated by the expectations set up by society, our peers, family, even ourselves?

I am currently taking a writing class at Concordia University in Montreal. I will bring this book to my next class and offer it to whoever will want to bring it home.

I had trouble getting into it at first. But it did prove to be a good read. Spooky and atmospheric with a good feel for English society and landscape.
