The Buried Giant by Kazuo Ishiguro

The Buried Giant by Kazuo IshiguroMy rating on GoodReads: 5 of 5 stars

Amazingly good! I’m usually not one for fantasy, I’m not one for dragons and ogres nor symbols. I chose this book because I loved the cover (the blue cover with gold writing), and it was written by Kazuo Ishiguro. After parting trepidatiously with AUD$30 for the printed book, I thought: Oh my, I hope I like the story! Choosing a book just for the cover isn’t clear thinking. I’m glad to report I was not disappointed, I was surprised and delighted by it’s strangeness. All the way through the story I found things that held true for the way of our world. Every now and then, something would happen in the story and my little grey-cells would sparkle, oh yes, I get that. It’s beautiful. I was very moved by the ending. I really got-it, and loved it.

I’ve added this book to my List of Betterment.
